ORLANDO, Fla – Universal Orlando has debuted its highly anticipated new show, "Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle," at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Island's of Adventure.

Universal officials said the new show will unleash the darker side of the popular "Harry Potter" franchise.

Special effects and lightning illuminate Hogwarts Castle as sinister creatures and villains like mountain trolls, dementors, death eaters, spiders and even the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, cast their shadows and spells.

Guests will get a chance to take part in the new show by summoning their inner strength and bravery to face the dark arts and produce a Patronus spell. The charm is said to be one of the most famous, and difficult, defenses against the dark evils.

Guests will come face-to-face with Death Eaters, the devoted followers of Lord Voldemort. The ominous green light and fog will permeate the Hogsmeade village, Universal leaders said.

The new show will run select nights Sept. 14 through Nov. 15 in the Wizarding of World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade.
