Universal Studios Hollywood has officially re-opened one of the more famous areas of their lot: Courthouse Square.
If you’re not familiar with the incredibly long past year that Universal has had: last June a massive fire destroyed four acres of the studio property (Read: Fire Raging At Universal Studios Hollywood). Since then they have been hard at work not only rebuilding the famous studio, lots, and visitor tour — but also on making everything bigger and better than ever before with new, state-of-the-art technologies and attractions. First came the announcement of their initial re-opening and their tram tour with insane new audio and video capabilities (Read: Universal Studios Hollywood Backlot Set To Return To Action After Fire). Next came word of the colossal return of one of their main attractions: King Kong. Only this time he would be so much more realistic than the famous giant animatronic beast they once had (Read: Universal Studios To Unveil New â€˜King Kongâ€™ Attraction In 2010).
Now that we’re all caught up, fans of the studio/park and filmmakers alike will be pleased at the latest announcement that Courthouse Square is now open once again. To celebrate the re-opening, a massive parade was thrown with many different characters from various movies that have been filmed there.
