New Diagon Details

Pictures speak louder than words -- so I'm going to let today's pictures mostly speak for themselves.
 Universal posted a new teaser video for "The Wizarding Word of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley" opening soon at Universal Studios Florida. It shows some tantalizing glimpses into the new land and shows the level of immersive details.

The video also shows our clearest look yet at Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix LeStrange in the land's biggest ride "Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts"

The video also shows the model of the fire-breathing dragon that is atop the building.

As our friends at Orlando Attractions Magazine showed us on Sunday, that Dragon was lifted into place this weekend

One final note take a look at this detailed interior (which I think is also in Gringotts)

It is the background for a special effect similar to how Dumbledore appears in Hogwarts Castle.

Still no opening date to tell you about yet. I still hear Universal is shooting for late June, but no promises.

I posted Universal's entire video below. I'm off tomorrow, so I'll see you next week.
