Universal Orlando reveals ‘most life-like animated figure ever’ for Harry Potter-themed coaster

Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – Universal Orlando Resort has revealed its most life-like animated figure ever created for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

The figure is none other than Hogwarts gamekeeper and Care of Magical Creatures professor himself, Hagrid.

Universal Orlando said guests will come face-to-face with Hagrid during their ride “as his hyper-realistic animated figure tries to contain his beloved Blast-Ended Skrewt.”

Universal Creative spent thousands of hours creating Hagrid’s figure with a level of detail that Universal says has never been done before.

The team worked alongside actor Robbie Coltrane, who portrays Hagrid in the film series.

The attraction opens on June 13.
