Post Life-size Hagrid model will be seen at Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

As Universal Orlando Resort teased, they will indeed be adding a life-life replica of Rubeus Hagrid in the soon-to-be-opened Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure roller coaster, open to the public beginning June 13.

The team worked tirelessly on the model, including replicating actor Robbie Coltrane's features to ensure that Hagrid is as authentic as possible. In the scenario to be seen at the ride, Hagrid will be in his Care of Magical Creatures, attempting to contain a Blast-Ended Skrewt.


Universal Orlando Resort has created its most life-like animated figure for the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience yet, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure – opening June 13. And it’s none other than Hogwarts gamekeeper and Care of Magical Creatures professor himself – Hagrid.

Guests will come face-to-face with Hagrid during their journey as his hyper-realistic animated figure tries to contain his beloved Blast-Ended Skrewt. The gentle half-giant will guide guests through their adventure into the Forbidden Forest as they encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and Hagrid’s animated figure are being brought to life by Universal Creative,the team responsible for creating Universal’s iconic rides and attractions. The team spent thousands of hours creating Hagrid’s animated figure with a level of detail that has never been done before, working alongside actor Robbie Coltrane - who portrays Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series – to develop the most advanced and realistic animated figure of its kind.

No details were spared when precisely replicating Hagrid for this new experience. Every detail about Hagrid is authentic towhat has been featured in the Harry Potter film series – all the way down to his iconic pink umbrella.
  • The animated figure features an extensive motion profile of 24 different body movements and facial expressions, mimicking Robbie Coltrane’s exact motions as Hagrid from the Harry Potter film series
  • A digital scan of Robbie Coltrane’s mouth was used to create Hagrid’s teeth
  • Hagrid’s entire face was meticulously sculpted by hand
  • Hagrid’s costume was designed by the same team that created his on-screen wardrobe
  • Robbie Coltrane recorded a custom script for Hagrid in this new adventure
  • And the height of the animated figure is 7 feet 6 inches tall – exactly proportional to Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series.

“Hagrid is such an iconic character and an integral part of the Harry Potter franchise, so we were excited to develop a truly innovative and authentic animated figure to bring him to life for this experience,” said Thierry Coup, Senior Vice President of Universal Creative. “We worked tirelessly to make sure Hagrid’s full essence was captured with the utmost attention to detail for our guests to feel completely immersed in this all-new adventure.”

When it opens on June 13, 2019, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will join the lineup of award-winning entertainment experiences in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort and bring an all-new adventure inspired by J.K. Rowling’s beloved stories to life. Guests will fly deep into the Forbidden Forest aboard magical motorbikes to brave the mysteries and thrills beyond the grounds of Hogwarts castle. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure will be located in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
