Pottermore has released a new interview with production designer, Stuart Craig.

The interview explores the Salem memorial:

  Accio Quote:
In the middle of this vast space, there’s a huge memorial to the witches of Salem. J.K. Rowling wrote it into the script. The witches in the memorial are bronze sculptures, slightly larger than life. They stand in amongst the crowd, if you can imagine, so people can walk through the memorial and right by the witches.

   New Hippogriff rollercoaster video0 Comments

Universal Studios has shared with us a new video of the Flight of the Hippogriff rollercoaster ride at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.

  Accio Quote:
On their way to a Hippogriff training flight, guests enter the Care of Magical Creatures grounds, where sounds of creatures can be heard in the distance. The winding path leads visitors through Hagrid’s pumpkin patch and by Hagrid’s Hut where Fang’s booming barks and occasional wails emanate from within the walls.

As visitors pass his hut, Hagrid instructs them on how to properly approach a Hippogriff. Once Hagrid’s lesson is complete, guests climb aboard two-seat wicker baskets that string together to form the Hippogriff and begin their training flight, where in fact, they will spot a Hippogriff in its nest.
