  1. After looking at the Gibson Amphitheater website we noticed that no events are listed past September 4th. No maze here, no shows at the Gibson, it is reasonable to assume that we could see Harry Potter construction begin in this location before the end of Horror Nights.

  3. Both, Gibson Amphitheatre AND Curious George will make way for it:

    Universal Studios in Hollywood will raze the 41-year-old Gibson Amphitheatre to make way for its coming Harry Potter attraction, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Like the Wizarding World in Orlando, the Hollywood Harry Potter will be a theme park based on J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" books and the films made from them.

    Also slated to fall under the advancing march of the boy wizard is Universal's Adventures of Curious George. The playland's current features include a 500-gallon water dump and flying foam balls.

  4. The Gibson Amphitheatre, a popular concert venue since opening in 1972 as the Universal Amphitheatre, will be leveled as early as October to make way for a Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood.

  5. Here it states construction will commence in LATE summer:

    Starting in late summer, NBCUniversal will begin construction of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter themed land at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park

    NBCUniversal has been given the greenlight to move forward with plans to build a Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Hollywood.

    Company will spend nearly $500 million to build the park, as well as upgrade its studio backlot with new office space, TV production facilities and other infrastructure.
    The Harry Potter theme park will begin construction later this summer.
    The park is expected to replace the space occupied by the 6,000-seat Gibson Amphitheater and surrounding areas like the park’s shuttered Terminator 2 3D attraction.
    (...) will essentially replicate the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that opened in 2010 at Universal’s Orlando resort (...)

  7. Where does a Harry Potter attraction fit there?!

    Harry Potter fans probably thought they’d seen the last of the boy wizard on the big screen but a ninth film is reportedly being secretly shot.
    However, you’ll have to visit a theme park in America or Japan to view it.

    Witching hour: Actress Helena Bonham Carter (far right) will reprise her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the new 'mini movie'
    The ‘mini movie’ is understood to be have been commissioned for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.
    It will also be shown at two new Harry Potter theme parks currently under construction in Japan and California.
    Actress Helena Bonham Carter – who played Bellatrix Lestrange - is one of the stars said to be reprising her role.
    The actors have been filming at Warner Brothers’ studios in Hertfordshire but details of the plot are being kept under wraps.
