Post First Hogwarts construction photos at Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Japan out

The first photos of construction of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan have been released online, featuring a large building - presumably Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - being built behind Universal's protective walls. Those images, via The Theme Park Guy, were taken earlier this week can be seen here. The Osaka venue, which will contain Hogwarts and Hogsmeade like its Orlando predecessor, is rumoured to open in late 2014 to the general public.













The press release issued by Universal and Warner Bros this past May confirmed that Hogsmeade and Hogwarts would be the signature venues at Universal Studios Japan's attraction.
The themed area itself will be a fully immersive environment for the entire family that brings the stories of Harry Potter to life and is faithful to the visual landscape of the films, including a majestic Hogwarts castle which will serve as the centerpiece of the land.

"I was delighted to experience and enjoy the attention to detail, creativity and superb craft that went into the first Wizarding World in Orlando. I am equally delighted that the same level of expertise and enjoyment will translate to the new park in Japan," said J.K. Rowling.

“Harry Potter, the most wonderful and amazing story of our time, is coming to Universal Studios Japan. USJ is thrilled to be chosen to make the Harry Potter experience come alive for the people of Japan. USJ is committed to being the world’s best Theme Park and by bringing this brilliant story to Japan and creating a fantastic experience is yet another validation of that commitment,” said Glenn Gumpel, President and CEO of USJ Co., Ltd. “USJ will recreate to the highest level of authenticity, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, created by Universal Studios in Orlando, which has been enjoyed and cherished by millions and millions of Universal Orlando’s guests. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - USJ’s commitment to bring the world’s best to life.”

SnitchSeeker will have full coverage of the construction and production of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions in Japan, Orlando, and Hollywood as they continue in the coming years.

This is so cool! I can't even imagine the amount of planning and hard work goes into building something like that.
