Universal Studios Japan Plans to Build First International Version of Hogwarts Castle in Osaka

Universal Studios Japan (USJ Co., Ltd.) will unveil plans to build the first international version of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the blockbuster attraction that has drawn millions of fans to Universal's Orlando resort in Florida and is expected to do the same at a planned Hollywood location. The Osaka destination, which will begin construction in the next few weeks and is scheduled to open in late 2014, is the latest in a series of expansions underway at major parks around the world that has followed an uptick in attendance, particularly in Asia. The $500-million park brings Hogwarts Castle and rides including Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey to the boy wizard's biggest market outside the United States.
