The trip, lasting about three minutes, was extended in the park for about one kilometer. The Universal Orlando website warned fans that the race was "in great demand", meaning that it would probably have longer lines.
For a limited time this spring, Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle, a new projection light show at Universal Studios Hollywood, brings the dark magic of Lord Voldemort and his Legion of Death Eaters to the park's sky.
Complete with the Dementors, Thestrals and Acromantulas galore, this highly anticipated scary show is a break with the typical jovial themes of the park, the Potters.
"After the success of Night lights at Hogwarts Castle, which tells the story of the four houses, and The magic of Christmas at Hogwarts CastleWe were looking for new stories to tell, "said Stephen Siercks, Senior Director of Show Production, Mashable.
"That led us to some of the darker shades of the wizarding world, and therefore: Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle. "
Cartographic projection technology keep the focus of Dark Arts on the replica of Universal Studios at Hogwarts, displaying scary images on the castle's face with stunning realism. With the help of immersive sound creation, the show also presents the story of Dumbledore and Voldemort, who presents the central scenario of Dark Arts to the life.
For the grand finale, drones follow one another to create an awesome – and extremely timely – Patronus deer on the side of the castle, ready to salvage what's left of the school of witchcraft and witchcraft.
(A note for fans wanting to see this particular aspect of the show: Make sure to stay further away from the castle, closer to Hogsmeade, than sitting on the right side of the Hogwarts audience. The audience standing in front of the Hippogriff Flying, miss a big chunk of the Patronus and the overall effect of the series.)
Want to catch Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle now? Feel free to look at the pictures below, but be aware that the show is much more convincing IRL – and with Butterbeer in hand.
Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle will take place at Universal Studios in Hollywood from April 13 to 28 and May 25 to 27.
East Coast fans looking to discover the attraction expect it to arrive at Universal Orlando Resort later this year.
That day, Rowling's announcement was mostly met applause. These days, Rowling's extratextual canonical social canonical embellishments – not just about Dumbledore's sexuality, that she developed on during the weekend, but also about The Hermione race, Harry's point of view on Israeland Nagini Hidden origins as a result of an Asian woman trapped in the body of a snake kept as a pet by a white supremacist – are usually greeted with shame. Over the past decade and more, Rowling seems to have lost touch with, if not outright alienated, the portion of the Internet with which she hopes to engage and rejoice with her new cute and seemingly random factoids. Now fans have to ask themselves: do they share some of the blame?
You may not be an author or a fan fiction player, or even a Potterhead, but you will almost certainly go into a fictional world on occasion, and these will probably be longer and longer. deep that before. Movie studios and companies such as Netflix have become experts to get your attention: optimize the bingability of a show, create viral moments and speculation on social networks, look into Easter eggs and the exclusives online, redeem superfranchises so vast and rich that you can create an unlimited number of books, movies, TV shows, video games, virtual reality experiences and walks in theme parks. (He takes over 11 days look at the fullness of the Marvel cinematic universe. You probably have already done it at least 11 times already.)
For them, it's a question of profit. For you it is more Pavlov. When you immerse yourself in pleasurable worlds and stories for long periods of time, you are practically treating dopamine, which increases the chances that you do not only like the characters you are watching, you will start to identify with them. This leaves you slightly Netflix-or addicted to the book and heavily invested in the people you have come to know during your frenzy. Your answer quite reasonable in the end: longer, longer and now, thank you. These are my friends!
A version of this voracity probably occurs forever. People are used to lin the docks waiting for the next episode of Charles Dickens stories, posing glaring questions about the characters to the crew as the boats approach. Lord of the Rings developed a cult as follows in the counterculture of the 1960s they scribbled messages like "Frodo Lives!" or "Gandalf for President" on the walls of the metro stations, the Twitter of their time. But you can only communicate in as small and impermanent a proportion as the graffito, and the writers of the time were far removed from the pressure of the fans to do more. Tolkien did not publish his book building exercise, The Silmarillion, in his lifetime. If I had been on Twitter, I would probably have it.
J.K. Rowling is very active on the Internet and knows her power and potential. In 2007, when she asked her audience to imagine the fan fiction – to imagine how fans would react to this extension of the Harry Potter universe with their own versions and elaborations – she did not condemn this practice. She encouraged him. The fanfiction, and, if my teenage memory allows me, especially Harry Potter fanfic to 2007, has always been a space for queer storytelling. Rowling added canonized kerosene to an already present spark. She would keep this practice for years to come, blurring the boundaries between her sacred text and fulfilling her wishes.
The way fans consume stories – and what they expect – necessarily changes the way they are created and narrated. Piss the fandom can hinder success of your story, and fans, via social media, now have a more direct line with the creators of their favorite stories than their Dickens counterparts. More strategic handlers of stories with important and vocal fandoms have adopted Rowling's tactics – if you can not beat them, feed them – and carefully, calculate them accurately. At this point, Rowling herself seems to run with scissors, ready to slice your childhood. The fact is that his "revelations" have appeared as distant and as unnatural as the bad fanfic, and many fans have begun to consider them as such.
You have contemporaries, each one in his own way. George R.R. Martin seems to have virtually abandoned his novels since the HBO show has passed them and sells successfully instead. tradition books, a kind of Silmarillion "Queerbaiting" sequelae – the practice of referring to the LGBTQ relationship between characters, but never realizing it – is becoming more and more common fictional genre, TV showsand movies-And this is not lost fandoms online They will not correspond to the intrigues they have most ardently tweeted.
At best, cross-pollination between fans and creators is a way to keep the long-cherished stories fresh. Fans (regressive Trolls apart) asked for more, including Star Wars, Star Treks and superhero movies, and that's what they received – and (again, if you ignore the trolls) that did not pollute the fundamental texts of these fandoms.
Of course, tell the writers when they put your favorite world in the sea, and tell them what you would like to see instead. The future of the storytelling will probably be more participatory and even-there will not be Twitter anyway, and the attention of the fault of the economy is that people are of any so addicted to the franchise. But as the need to spend more time with our fictional friends grows, the culture of online fans will meet more and more storytellers who will eventually grow their universe into forms that some do not like. If your flu is due to the mid-chlorians or Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald, it is essentially based on the same criticism: when I asked for more, I thought more about the version of your world that exists in my head.
J.K. De Rowling last taken about how Dumbledore and Grindlewald would have had an "intense love" and the "sexual" relationship looks like another round worthy of a groan in a very bad game show – What will J.K. Rowling Retcon do next?
But Twitter has made it clear that wizards are probably at the bottom of the list in terms of the wizarding world legends we would like to know.
