As promised, Universal Orlando announced new details about the Hogwarts Express at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this morning.

A press release, updated website, and new stills offer an early glimpse at what guests can expect onboard as they travel between Hogwarts/Hogsmeade and London/Diagon Alley beginning this summer at Universal Orlando.

“To board the Hogwarts Express at King’s Cross Station, you’ll walk straight through a solid brick wall onto Platform 9 ¾,” Universal’s website says, “where a Hogwarts Prefect will be waiting to lead you to your passenger compartment.”

Your experience on board will be unique to the direction you’re traveling. “Once seated in the cabin, guests will be able to look out their windows as an incredibly authentic and magical adventure unfolds before them,” a press release states. “They’ll see Hagrid come alongside the train on his flying motorbike, Buckbeak the Hippogriff swoop gracefully over the black lake, the Weasley twins on brooms and up to their usual antics, the Knight Bus swerving through London traffic – and other special moments and surprises.”

Universal released three new stills from the journey today which depict Hagrid, Buckbeak, and one of the Weasley twins. These scenes will appear during the train ride outside of your window.

Matt Smith is amazing. These guys, they work so hard on that show. And Matt. He learns lines so fast. Scripts are given to him last minute and they’ll go straight from one episode to the next one the next day and he’s remembered it. But he’s so full of energy and spark and imagination. You read the scene on the page and you think, that’s a good scene, but Matt gets hold of it and it’s like, ‘Wow, that’s incredible.’

‘Willow’ and 'Star Wars’ actor Warwick Davis admitted that the Cybermen “were always scary to me. I was one of those kids who hid behind the sofa, so I know they are scary. But the Cybermen that I saw were awesome and yeah I think it’ll be scary.

“I mean, it was an exciting moment to come face-to-face with one of those dudes. Seriously, it was a great thrill. I mean, it was a great thrill to be in Doctor Who. A career ambition. But to be in an episode written by Neil and to have Cybermen in it, was for me the jackpot.

Davis will appear in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who Series 7.
