Hey everybody, welcome to another Wizarding World Hollywood Update. We're running it a bit late this week due to our review of Fast and Furious: Supercharged that ran on Monday, be sure to check that out if you missed it.
These pics were taken last Friday, so they may be a "bit" outdated seeing how fast the park is working, it's pretty much to the point if we don't get these updates up a day or two after taking them, they are no longer current. Lesson learned. =)

Before we get to the Wizarding World Stuff, we want to send out a HUGE congrats to Universal Pictures and everybody involved with Jurassic World. We all really enjoyed the movie for what it was, a fun summer popcorn movie. It had great nods to the original that had us all smiling and the action and dino's were great. If you haven't seen it, you should go out and give Universal more $$ now. =)
It will be interesting to see what, if anything is announced as far as Jurassic World expansions in the coming months/years. I'm sure they all knew it would be a hit, but I'm not sure anybody saw it being THIS big (so far at least).
With that said, let's head over to Wizarding World, starting off with our traditional opening shot of the Hogsmeade entry arch.
So much detail
Hogwarts, looking great
What's that lurking through the trees?
Flight of the Hippogriff track is going up!!!
You can actually see the entire area MUCH better from the other side (where we entered for our Fast and Furious tour) but of course we were asked not to take pictures there, and we of course did not.
There are actually a few other things going on around the rest of the park such as the new retail/dining location where House of Horrors used to be. It's going up very quickly.
Believe it or not, construction is already taking place for Halloween Horror Nights!!!
The Metro Sets were totally closed off as they were filming something.
And finally, a jeep from Jurassic World has been added to the Universal Cars display.
Ok, that's going to wrap it up for this update. We'll be at the park next week for the red carpet premiere of Fast and Furious: Supercharged so we'll have more updates then.
