On Monday, Universal Orlando released an image of what it is calling its most lifelike animated figure yet for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, the highly themed coaster opening June 13. The Hogwarts gamekeeper, played in the Harry Potter films by actor Robbie Coltrane, is the gentle half-giant who will guide visitors into the Forbidden Forest as they encounter rare magical creatures during the ride at the Orlando theme park.

I had to watch this twice in order to notice the animatronic. I think it had more to do with the video seeming like an intro to some larger feature than the quality of the animatronic... which does look very good.

"more than 1,200 specially planted trees."

So they partnered with SF Great Adventure?
