New magical creatures are coming to Universal Studios Japan! The theme park will be welcoming Hippogriffs, baby dragons, Pygmy Puffs, and Nifflers this spring, with the display opening 17th March. Find out what it’s all about here.

Embrace your inner Hagrid and get ready to meet some of your favourite magical creatures with Universal Studios Japan launching an adorable new addition to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.


Coming March 17th, some of your absolute beastly favourites have been let loose in the Hogsmeade section of the theme park. Fans can join Hogwarts students in learning how to approach a Hippogriff politely (with the hope of getting a bow back!) in a brand new show. You can also expect to meet some smaller friends, from a cheeky Niffler, who has gotten into some Owl Post in search of all things shiny, to an adorable fluffy Pygmy Puff outside Zonko’s Joke Shop to a freshly hatched baby dragon.

The magical creatures will be stationed all over Hogsmeade for you to find and interact with – so take a page from Newt Scamander’s book and prepare to learn all about them. Remember, no two visits to the wizarding world are ever quite the same.

You can visit the official Universal Studios Japan website for more details.
