May 19 (UPI) -- Universal Studios Hollywood says its "Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle" projection show is to begin June 23.

"As night falls on Hogsmeade village, 'The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle' will shine brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin that culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky," a press release from the theme park promised. "The colorful, state-of-the-art light display and special- effects projection, designed to dance across the stunning Hogwarts castle, will be accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series."
