Universal Reveals Hagrid, In Life Size

Universal Orlando Resort – Hagrid

Orlando, Fla.  – Universal Orlando Resort has created its most life-like animated figure for the most highly themed, immersive coaster experience yet. Universal Revealed  Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure – opening June 13, and it’s nothing like witches and wizards have ever seen.  Hogwarts gamekeeper and Care of Magical Creatures professor himself – Hagrid has walked off the movie screen and will be with you on this new adventure. 

Hagrid is the real deal

Guests will come face-to-face with Hagrid during their journey as his hyper-realistic animated figure tries to contain his beloved Blast-Ended Skrewt. The gentle half-giant will guide guests through their adventure into the Forbidden Forest as they encounter some of the wizarding world’s rarest magical creatures.

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and Hagrid’s animated figure are being brought to life by Universal Creative, the team responsible for creating Universal’s iconic rides and attractions. The team spent thousands of hours creating Hagrid’s animated figure with a level of detail that has never been done before, working alongside actor Robbie Coltrane – who portrays Hagrid in the Harry Potter film series – to develop the most advanced and realistic animated figure of its kind.

Your First Look

No details were spared when precisely replicating Hagrid for this new experience. Every detail about Hagrid is authentic to what has been featured in the Harry Potter film series – all the way down to his iconic pink umbrella.

“Hagrid is such an iconic character and an integral part of the Harry Potter franchise, so we were excited to develop a truly innovative and authentic animated figure to bring him to life for this experience. We worked tirelessly to make sure Hagrid’s full essence was captured with the utmost attention to detail for our guests to feel completely immersed in this all-new adventure.”
