Here's a first look at California's new Harry Potter theme park

The ever-extending reach of Harry Potter continues, this time to Hollywood. Universal has released a new video that features a Hogwarts express conductor guiding viewers through what the Wizarding World at Universal Studios Hollywood has to offer.

For those who have been to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, the park already feels familiar. It's set up like the wizarding village of Hogsmeade, with shops including Honeydukes, The Hog's Head, Dervish and Banges, and Zonko's (as well as the factually misplaced Ollivander's, which is actually in Diagon Alley but appears in Hogsmeade at both Universal parks). There's a mouthwatering mention of butterbeer, which will be available throughout the premises.

Beyond the village are Hogwarts castle, home to "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey," an immersive experience that takes visitors riding through the castle and its grounds. The conductor narrating the video even mentions Hagrid's hut and alludes to the "Flight of the Hippogriff" ride, to reassure us that this park has everything offered in Orlando (minus Diagon Alley...at least for the time being).

The new branch of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens in spring 2016.

    Been to Universal, Orlando 3 years in a row. There are 2 rides - Escape from Gringott's and the Hogwart's ride in the Harry Potter world. The Hogwart's ride is the best of the 2. Wear shoes that won't fall off your feet or tuck your shoes into the back of

    Ok, I'm going to pick at this a little. Ollivander's is NOT in Hogsmeade, it's in Diagon Alley. I know that the park in Orlando has Diagon Alley, but Hollywood doesn't-yet. If it were me, I would have waited, and then the park would be more authentic.

    Earwax flavor is the least of your worries, try these: Rotten Egg, Vomit, Soap, Earthworm, Sausage, etc. Although, you can also get them from Amazon. I am so going! Does anyone know if they will have Butterbeer?

    Does anyone know if there are going to be rides as well? I visited the one in Orlando and there were a few Harry Potter themed rides (one of which was a tour of the castle).

    I wish there was an official date! I’m in LA in April, all the way from England, and would love to visit Harry Potter! Hope it opens before I go :)

    IGN, I understand you are getting less hits since switching to livefyre, and less hits translates to less add revenue. But really? A pop up and a pre-video ad? On top of it all, the video player still doesn't work for me (explorer). The sound cannot be
