'Walking Dead' attraction spotlights a different kind of walker

Molds from the AMC TV show are being used to create the undead for a new attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood opening in July.

Most of the undead walkers on AMC's "The Walking Dead" are memorable only if they're especially gory, but the one dubbed "Bicycle Girl" is different.

Webisodes revealed the sad demise of Hannah, a mother of two who let the walkers rip her in half in order to allow her two children time to run. Rick Grimes meets her in the show's very first episode and says, "I'm sorry this happened to you," perhaps the last bit of zombie sympathy the show's star reveals.

Although Rick put Hannah out of her misery on the show, she will rise again as one of the undead animatronics populating Universal Studios Hollywood's new "Walking Dead" attraction.

"We're getting the chance to utilize molds that were created specifically for the show and translate them into parts of the attraction," said Greg Nicotero, producer and special-effects guru for the show. "We're creating animatronic walkers that guests will be able to see."

"The Walking Dead" attraction is being built just inside the California theme park's main entry, and isn't recommended for those under 13. (Thankfully, the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter will suck up all their time anyway.)

The dead start walking July 4. It's their independence day.
