We are keeping up to date with all the latest updates to Universal's Third Gate, Epic Universe and we are pleased to bring you the latest aerial photo footage from Bioreconstruct so you can see all the recent changes that have been made.
In this first photo you can clearly see the in-park hotel with the circular fountain basin. Paving of the access road has begun and it is expected that there will be a nighttime show with lighting, projections on the hotel and fireworks.

Heading to the rumored Wizarding World area and you can see a frame which is assumed to be a copy of Porte Saint-Denis and a recently added steel frame.

Aerial look at the most recently added steel frame for city blocks in a Harry Potter related land. It's very interesting there is a concrete structure here as well. Believed to be related to a future expansion in Epic Universe. pic.twitter.com/Phnqlo52CJ— bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) March 17, 2023
This aerial photo shows the rumored Wizarding World land at Epic Universe as well as the dual-racing roller coaster and in-park hotel. It also shows areas that could be used for future expansions to Epic Universe.

We now know that Epic Universe will now be known as Universal Epic Universe rather than Universal's. You can see the updated logo below.
We will continue to update you with all the construction progress at Universal Epic Universe over the coming months. So you can see the developments here are the updates from the beginning of March...
I’m not sure if it’s too late to reconsider but for Universal’s Epic Universe in the DreamWorks area could you go back to the other option and make it look more like Fantasyland at Disney. This way it would be better because it should have more than one land from previous DreamWorks animated franchises. For Instance you should leave room too great a Madagascar land and make it just like the one in Singapore which sadly is being changed to Minions land and that’s stupid because Despicable Me is pretty common cat every Universal Studios around the world. However, Madagascar land isn’t common that land was pretty unique and while your at also make room for a Kung Fu Panda land even though there’s one at the Universal Studios in Beijing it would still be a good idea because that land will be pretty much unique also if it gets changed in the future. My point being is if you’re going to have a DreamWorks themed land don’t just let it be How to Train Your Dragon there add these two lands too it as well. If you can’t reconsider then just add these two lands separately too the park.
