Fans of the Harry Potter movies rejoice; England’s Warner Bros. Studios offers “The Making of Harry Potter tour” which opened two weeks ago.
With this tour, Harry Potter fans have a new way of enjoying and reliving the film’s adventures.
The setting, made by Thinkwell Group of California, is located twenty miles away from London. The tour lasts 3 hours, showcasing models, costumes, props and sets from all Harry Potter movies.
Some of the sets in this tour are patterned after those located at Universal Studios in Florida, called the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The London tour, on the other hand, features a unique Hogwarts Castle model that’s 50 feet in length. This model was used for aerial photographs in the actual movies.
The Hogwarts Castle model was scaled 1:24. 86 artists made it and features hinged doors, 250 lights, miniature birds, and even live plants.
The following movie sets can be found in the tour: the Diagon Alley, the Great Hall, Dumbledore’s office, the Ministry of Magic, Professor Snape’s classroom, Gryffindor boys dormitory and common room, Hagrid’s Hut, the Weasleys’ Kitchen, Professor Umbridge’s office, Professor Snape’s classroom, Hogwarts bridge, and the Dursleys’ home at Privet Drive.
The tour also showcases the following displayed movie props. First is the Knight Bus, a 3-deck bus that is fully functioning. Second are some flying broomsticks used in the movie, including the Firebolt, Nimbus 2000 and Nimbus 2001. Third are the magic wands and glasses that Daniel Radcliffe used throughout the Harry Potter movies.
