Feathers And Flight Event

On Friday April 4th, the Feathers And Flight event began at Warner Bros Studio Tour in Leavesden and thanks to Megan for the tickets, we were in attendance! 

 

The event runs in the tour from now up until April 27th (so there's plenty of time for you to go see it!) and gives you an insight into how the animals were trained to act in the Harry Potter films (and how they will be for Fantastic Beasts).

First up, we had a Q&A session with Julie Tottman and Guillaume Grange, the head animal trainers on set. You can read the full Q&A by clicking here

 

 

Q - Are any of the animals going to be working on the new movies? The Fantastic Beasts ones?

Julie - Not these particular - well, actually, I can't say for sure but most of the original Harry Potter ones are retired apart from the birds, so possibly some birds, but havn't had that call yet, waiting for that!

 

I also spoke to Val Jones, the featherologist, about whether they would be using the Hippogriffs they had already built, or would they need to make new ones for Fantastic Beasts. She said (if there are any Hippogriffs in the new movies) that new ones would have to be made. 

"Not looking forward to that call! They were very hard to do!"

 

Apart from that, you get to meet some of the owls that were trained for the movies and some of the equipment used to train them.

It is a brilliant insight into just how complex it is to teach some of the animals things you barely even think about when watching a movie & makes you wonder how they'll do Fantastic Beasts!

Warner Bros Studio Tour Showcase

This past weekend, MinaLima, the graphic designers from the Harry Potter movies, had a showcase in the Warner Bros Studio Tour to mark the studio's second anniversary.

As the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them book was on show, we were in attendance!

Another thing of note - we asked MinaLima themselves and found out that the 'Martino Frolic' trophy in the studio is not going to be a character, but was simply an ode to a friend (disappointing but good to know!).

Also, we were told they know nothing so far about Fantastic Beasts or whether the book cover design will change.

Fantastic Beasts Movie To Be Filmed In England

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is to be filmed in Warner Bros Studio, Leavesden! 

Whilst Newt's journey is set to begin in New York, it doesn't seem likely he'll stay there for very long. 

At Warner Bros. studio tour today I spoke to a few staff members who told me that they were told Fantastic Beasts is definitely going to be filmed in the studio lot, though they weren't told when filming begins!

Fantastic Beasts Set To Be A Trilogy

In a recent New York Times profile on Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, it was revealed that Fantastic Beasts is set to be a trilogy!

That is when Warner announced that Ms. Rowling had agreed to adapt for the big screen her “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” a 2001 book billed as one of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbooks. Three megamovies are planned. The main character will be a “magizoologist” named Newt Scamander. The stories, neither prequels or sequels, will start in New York about seven decades before the arrival of Mr. Potter and his pals.

Convincing the famously independent Ms. Rowling to dive back into film was a coup. “When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts’ happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth,” Ms. Rowling said in response to emailed questions. “We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!” 

She added, “When Kevin got the top job, he brought a new energy, which rubbed off. He’s a very engaging person, thoughtful and funny.”

 

At least now we know that it's not going to be a stand-alone movie in a series of the other books!
