Hogwarts In The Snow at WB Studio Tour

Warner Bros Studio Tour London will be bringing back it's Hogwarts In The Snow event this winter with another chance for you to see the magic happen.

It's been many years since Newt Scamander enjoyed the delights of being resident at Hogwarts for Christmas time, but this is just another magnificent look into his world, which is what we love here at FantasticBeastsMovie.Net!

The most magical snowfall of the season will return to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter this year as the breathtaking Hogwarts castle model is covered in a blanket of snow. Visitors will get the chance to see the castle’s festive makeover – as well as the iconic Great Hall decorated for Christmas – from Friday 14th November to Sunday 1st February.

For the first time at the Studio Tour, the film series’ Special Effects Department will use coloured lights and a special vapour that flickers and dances to create ‘fire’ in the Great Hall and Gryffindor common room fireplaces. Meanwhile, real flames will lick the plum puddings on display in the Great Hall.

Most of the snow used on the Hogwarts castle model throughout the Harry Potter film series was a mixture of paper and dendritic salt. It was used because it clumps like snow and even squeaks when walked on. During filming, a member of the crew climbed aboard an elevated work platform and sprinkled the mixture onto the model by hand with a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake. The same process will be used at the Studio Tour this November and samples of the different types of snow used in the film series will be on display.

The Great Hall will be decorated with the original props seen during the Christmas feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Eight Christmas trees will line the iconic set and two long dining tables will be dressed as they were for seasonal feasts with prop versions of turkeys, hams, fruit, vegetables and snow cakes (while the food featured in the feasts throughout the early films was real, the Set Decoration Department later used artificial food created from powder and resin).

Visitors will see the hand-knitted jumpers that Molly Weasley gave Ron and Harry for Christmas in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Other costumes on display will include one of the first Christmas presents Harry ever received at Hogwarts, his Invisibility Cloak, and the dressLuna Lovegood wore to the Slug Club Christmas party in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The event runs from Friday 14th November to Sunday 1st February and tickets can be bought by clicking this link.

Like all events at WB Studio Tour, this one is not to be missed!

Thanks to Mugglenet for the press release.

Fantastic Beasts Set To Be More Than A Trilogy?

According to a new report released by Warner Bros today, we know that the three release dates for the Fantastic Beasts Trilogy are confirmed:


The Studio will release three pictures, in 2016, 2018 and 2020, based on best-selling author J.K. Rowling’s original story and screenwriting debut, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author, Newt Scamander, “Fantastic Beasts” will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.


Interestingly, there is also a report by Slash Film that suggests the trilogy may be more than a trilogy:

We already knew the first spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by Rowling and directed by David Yates, would be out on November 18, 2016. We also knew it was the first in a planned trilogy. But Wednesday, we learned much more.

Kevin Tsujihara, the CEO of Warner Bros., announced Wednesday the series will be “at least” a trilogy and that the second and third installments will be released in 2018 and 2020. Read more about the Fantastic Beasts trilogy below.

The news came as part of a a Time Warner investors meeting.

 Lionel Wigram was an executive producer for the "Harry Potter" films and will likely take on the same role for Fantastic Beasts.

Nagini Model To Be Added To WB Studio Tour

While the magical world of Newt Scamander contains many fantastic, magical beasts, the regular ones that us Muggles are familiar with are also of major importance.

Take snakes for example and their relationship with Parseltongues (wizards who have the ability to converse with snakes).

We may or may not see some snakes in the Fantastic Beasts movies, but, whilst we wait to find out, we can now see in person the twenty foot scale model of 'Nagini' ('Voldemort's snake from the 'Harry Potter' movies) in the newly improved Dark Arts section of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour:


Prop makers, Neil Ellis, John Weller and Pierre Bohanna who worked on the Harry Potter film series were up in the early hours of Tuesday morning delivering the first in a range of sinister, weird and wonderful props to a new Dark Arts feature at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. The team carried the model of Voldemort’s snake, Nagini, down Diagon Alley to take its position in the Dark Arts area which will be officially unveiled on Tuesday 14th October.
Meticulously handcrafted using the original mould that was first fashioned for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the 20-foot Nagini model will be the centrepiece of the original Malfoy Manor table in the new Dark Arts exhibit - the Studio Tour’s first permanent addition since opening. Nagini was first seen in the fourth film and had characteristics of both a python and an anaconda. A model of the snake was created to scale and then digitally scanned.


Nagini’s role was considerably larger in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Parts 1 and 2, so she was revamped to be an even more threatening presence. A live python was studied by the Visual Effects Department, who not only sketched and filmed the snake, but took high-resolution images of the individual scales. These images were used to create new textures and colours that added iridescence and a snakeskin’s reflective properties. Nagini was still primarily a python, but with added cobra and viper-like movements.
This time around, prop makers began the painstakingly detailed two-week modelling process by injecting rubber into the mould to create the snake’s outer shell. A special basecoat was then applied so that the paint would stick to the snake’s rubber skin. Each scale was then individually hand-painted using a latex-infused coating that is designed to flex with the bendable model. Finally, a metal skeleton was inserted to give the snake a life-like posture and the model was lacquered using the same outer coating that is used on most cars, giving it a reptilian sheen.
This life-like model of Voldemort’s loyal 20-foot snake Nagini will sit on the mahogany table which is part of the new Dark Arts section launching on Tuesday 14th October.
This October, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will unveil a new section devoted to the Dark Arts, encompassing Horcruxes and other sinister wizarding artefacts, in what is the Studio Tour’s first permanent addition since opening. The new permanent Dark Arts section will be launched with a two-week event highlighting the Dark Arts from Friday 17th October – Monday 3rd November and all extra activities are included in the ticket price.
