    Re: Harry Potter at Universal Hollywood, construction, when?

    Considering the USO construction and USJ constrctruiton we may have a year or two before anything serious starts. It appears some minor site works is taking place right now, but not moving dirt or pouring concrete. A main consideration is this is going to be a lot of new build, or retheme, not tear down and rebuild, which will shorten the construction timeline.

    grrrr, who knows. The Gibson just posted a full event roster that goes until the end of the year. The rumor was they were starting in May (maybe they still are) but we are still waiting for word on the passage of the Evolution plan....and I don't know if that even effects Potter's start date.

    There is a lot of utility work going on back stage, though, so they are definitely gearing up for something.

    It looks like the utility work is starting to wind down. The trenches that were covered with steel plates have been filled in certain areas. One of the projects they are working on now is relocating a series of trash compactors that were on the edge of the Gibson property to an area near iFly.

    The old Wild West area is having some work done, maybe this will be a start
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    The Wild West arena work is not directly Potter related. It is being turned into "Universal Plaza" which is supposed to have a multi-purpose stage, seating, food and "water play". The "water play" IMO means a replacement for the Curious George area that will eventually get the boot for HP.
