This exclusive video reveals some of the secrets behind The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. Spoiler: it looks really cool.

It’s a rare thing to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Hollywood completely empty, but here’s a sneaky tour around the attraction without the usual animated fans.

In this exclusive video art director Alan Gilmore, who worked on the Harry Potter films, takes us behind the scenes of iconic locations including Hogsmeade village and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

From a crashed and battered Ford Anglia, to the intricate woodwork of the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom desks, the detail is incredible.

Now, please excuse us while we practise some of our spells.
