While the Harry Potter series may be finished with its box office reign, the spells, characters and plot live on in the hearts of readers and viewers alike. This summer, Harry Potter fanatics can continue their love of the spell-binding series at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London’s first Summer Spells feature.
The London studio is hosting a six-week summer feature involving everything Harry Potter. Fans of the highest-grossing film series of all time can immerse themselves in to the world of potions, magic and wizard duels by visiting the studio starting 26th July and ending 2nd September.
Visitors will discover how spells like Wingardium Leviosa came to life and can even be taught wand battle choreography by staff members such as expert Paul Harris who composed the battle between Dumbledore and Voldemort in the fifth movie. Potterheads can also walk through Diagon Alley where special effects demonstrations will be held, allowing guests to create magic of their own by pointing a wand to a sign above Potage’s Cauldron Shop and making it flash to life.
On top of learning wand choreography and how to create their own spells, people will be able to get an inside look at many different secrets of the movie that have never before been revealed.
For the first time ever fans can get a look at the Irish Wolfhound that was dressed as a Patronus, a protective charm that shields wizards against Dementors, which was used to aid actors such as Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson while filming. They can even take a peek inside of the hundreds of potion jars that line the walls of the Potions classroom. Visitors will get an exclusive look on the props, effects, sets and costumes that made the Harry Potter movies so successful when visiting the studio this summer.
