Studio Tour - Back To School Event

This September, from the 5th to 14th, Warner Bros. Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter, will be hosting a brand new feature - Back To School.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter invites visitors to go back to school this September with set design and storyboarding workshops, as well as the chance to see authentic sets, props and costumes from the world’s most famous school of witchcraft and wizardry.

From Friday 5th – Sunday 14th September, visitors will get the opportunity to make a simple card model like those used in the early stages of the design process and learn about a variety of sets as well as ingenious camera and post-production techniques. The Studio Tour will reveal filmmaking secrets behind some of the iconic sets from the Harry Potter film series and highlight the process that brought locations such as the Great Hall, Diagon Alley and Hogwarts castle to life on screen.

Visitors will also be able to create storyboards for their own original story idea, after being shown the industry method which helps the Director, Cinematographer and other artists envisage a scene or the film as a whole.

As the nation’s children put on their school uniforms, some Studio Tour staff members will don authentic Hogwarts robes used in the most successful film series of all time. Visitors will get the chance to examine the costumes of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff students up close and try on replica robes as they fly on a broomstick like a member of the cast. A section of Hogwarts’ majestic Great Hall will also be dressed as it was during O.W.L. examination scenes in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Tickets must be pre-booked and all extra activities are included in the ticket price.


By booking a ticket for any time during the week of the 5th - 14th, you will be able to take part in this event.

Click here to book your tickets! 


As we're gearing up for Fantastic Beasts to begin filming, this is the perfect way to see a bit behind-the-scenes of what is about to come!

Harry Potter: The Creature Vault

From the 28th of October "Harry Potter: The Creature Vault", a book about all the creatures and plants from the Harry Potter movies, will go on sale.

You can currently pre-order it from the publisher's website for $45 and here is what the website says about the compendium:

Dementors and House-elves, merpeople and Chinese Fireball Dragons—these are just a few of the magical creatures and frightening monsters populating J. K. Rowling's wizarding world. Harry Potter: The Creature Vault is a fascinating look at how this menagerie was brought to life for the blockbuster Harry Potter film series. Detailed profiles of each creature include rare concept illustrations, behind-the-scenes photography, and filmmaking secrets from the Warner Bros. archive. A removable poster picturing each of the creatures and an interactive Eeylops Owl Emporium catalog complete this must-have package.


This book is sure to give us some new information on some of the creatures we're set to see in the Fantastic Beasts movies so don't forget to order your copy!

Thanks to Mugglenet for the tip!

David Yates To Direct?

According to Variety, David Yates (director of part of the Harry Potter franchise) may be set to return to the wizarding world as director of the first Fantastic Beasts installment.

Sources tell Variety that Yates, who directed several Harry Potter movies including the final “Deathly Hallows” installments, has agreed to return for the first installment of the Harry Potter spinoff trilogy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

No deal has been made but insiders confirm both sides are in negotiations. WB had no comment on this story.

According to sources, the studio had always wanted to approach a person who was familiar with the “Harry Potter” landscape, having also gone out to Alfonso Cuaron, who helmed “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”

Hopefully we'll hear more about this in the coming weeks and have a confirmed director soon!

So far we know David Heyman (also from the Harry Potter movies) will be producing and J.K Rowling herself will be writing the screenplay.

MinaLima Talk Fantastic Beasts

In a new interview with Buzzfeed, Eduardo Lima (of MinaLima) says a little something about Fantastic Beasts:


The producers for the film haven’t started to hire their crew yet, but if MinaLima have anything to do with it, it’ll be just as magical as the Harry Potter films.

When we asked if there would be a difference between the British and American Wizarding Worlds, Eduardo told us, “I think that we’ll do something to show the difference. Especially with the fact that it’s in New York. You have to take that into account. It needs to have something. If the Ministery of Magic is underground in London, maybe in New York it is really tall, or 20 floors above the building that only wizards can see. The book about the Fantastic Beasts is quite short so it doesn’t give you a lot, but all the meetings in the medieval times used to go about what is a beast — what classifies as a beast, of good and not so good. The visual effects will also have such a great time. They’ll have so much fun.”


We can't wait to hear more about MinaLima starting working on the series!
