Last spring on opening night of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Hollywood, there was a light show that dazzled spectators with projections and fireworks. The opening show was so well received that Universal decided they wanted to make something comparable to that happen on a nightly occurrence.
Since then, Universal has been hard at work creating a show to play every night, and it is something the Universal Studios Hollywood team seems to be really excited about. In a quote in The Los Angeles Times, the senior manager of audio and visual production of Universal Studios Hollywood, Stacey Quinealty said, “We really wanted the guests to have that bone-chilling moment and go, ‘Wow, this is something I’ve never experienced before.’”
Legendary composer John Williams “created the light show’s original arrangement, which is a medley of music pulled from the films.” The music will surround and completely immerse the guests with a massive sound system that promises “eight models of speakers and 3-D projection mapping” which means, “guests will experience the show differently depending on where they watch from.”
