There is a treat online this morning, for national commercial for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park set to air during the Super Bowl XLIV game has made its way online and can be watched via WalletPop.com. (Update: The video is now in our video galleries here.)  As readers will recall, Universal Orlando Resort gave word that this commercial for the Harry Potter theme park will be featuring “Be Courageous. Be Outrageous. Be Extraordinary.” theme, and would give new and expanded views at the theme park.  The commercial, which runs exactly thirty seconds, gives us brand new looks at the towering Hogwarts Castle, sprawling Hogsmeade shops, Hogwarts Express, and more.  The video also features actor Dan Radcliffe as the character of Harry Potter leading the way for two young Gryffindor Quidditch players as they fly into the castle.

Super Bowl XLIV will air Sunday, February 7, 2010 on CBS. 

Update: WB has let us know that syndicated entertainment show Access Hollywood will be airing a segment about the Wizarding Word advertisement this evening.

Thanks to WalletPop.com for mailing.

I’m glad it wasn’t that good of a commercial; it leaves me wanting MORE! :) Dan’s part cracks me up for some reason. Haha.

I must concede that I was disappointed by the ad and frankly considered it rather corny.

the commercial wasn’t that great but it will still be amazing. i really want to go this summer but 1) i don’t know anyone to go with me that would want to go that badly 2) it’s going to be mobbed for a long time and that may take some of the fun out of it. there are so many parts of it that sound cool. trying butterbeer and other harry potter foods and going through the shops

I just wish it showed a little bit more of the park, but it was a nice little tease all in all.

YAY! I love that they put Dan in there! He looks much more mature than what he did in HBP

We were just at Universal a few weeks ago and what is already done looks awesome! From several of the rides you can see into “Hogsmeade” and everything is very authentic looking. I could not believe what a great job they have done recreating Hogwarts Castle. I cannot wait until it opens!

That was absolutely terrible…no offense to the folks at Universal. It just doesn’t seem like they are in touch with their audience at all. Many of us on here could have come up with a better commercial. I’d hate to think I spent that much money for a Super Bowl commercial.
