A New Kind of Harry Potter Experience

Last November, WB announced that they were planning to open something magical at Leavesden, the production home of the Harry Potter films for over ten years.

Today, they announced their plans - in the Spring of 2012, they will open Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. As they announced, the walking tour experience will
give visitors the chance to go behind the scenes of the most successful film series of all time and witness the intricate detail that goes into a working set to see first hand what the camera doesn’t show.

Featuring the authentic sets, costumes, animatronics, props and effects used in the production of all eight Harry Potter movies, the tour will showcase the British artistry, technology and talent that went into bringing this beloved film series to life.

Among a series of never-before-seen exhibits on the three hour long tour, visitors will be able to walk onto some of the most memorable sets from all of the films in the Harry Potter series including the iconic Great Hall, Dumbledore’s office and many others to be announced at a later date.

Tickets will go on sale later this year and must be booked in advance via a dedicated website or through approved tour operators.

The Tour will give fans a new way to experience the magic of the Harry Potter films and possibly provide inspiration for creative fans of all types. We'll be there in the Spring of 2012, and hope you will be, too!
