Details Emerge about Escape From Gringotts and the Harry Potter expansion

Universal has unveiled more details about the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter, set to open this summer in Universal Orlando. As we reported several times before, the expansion in the Universal Studios park will feature the famed "Diagon Alley" from the Harry Potter books and films and will feature an entire attraction based off the Gringotts Bank, named Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts and was confirmed that the attraction takes place during the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2). It will look very much like the bank seen in the Harry Potter films, and will feature appearances by Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) and Lord Voldemort  He Who Must Not Be Named (Ralph Fiennes) not to mention the trio of Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) Hermionie (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint).

Some new info about the ride was shared in this incredible video posted by Universal Orlando earlier this morning, which even gives a sneak peek with actual footage and concept art for the ride:

If you're not blown away enough (Aunt Marge style) take a look at these photos of the attraction released by Universal Orlando earlier today:

The attraction and the entire Diagon Alley section looks incredible. We can't wait to stop in Flourish and Blott's and pick up a copy of Magical Me by Gilderoy Lockhart and pick up a few Pygmy Puffs at Weasley's Wizard Wheezes right down the road. The entire area looks amazing and immersive. No opening date has been announced just yet.
