The studio says the attraction, which goes under the rather lengthy name of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, will offer visitors the first ever behind-the-scenes tour of the highly successful film series.
The experience will take up more than 150,000 square feet including two dedicated soundstages at Leavesden studios where the films were made.
Guests will be able to see firsthand the sheer scale and detail of the actual sets, costumes, animatronics, special effects and props used in all eight of the Harry Potter films.
Franchise star says Daniel Radcliffe said fans would “be amazed to see the incredible environment we’ve worked in all these years.”
Co-star Rupert Grint added: “The sets all have tiny little details that you may not always notice in the films but when you actually walk through them, you can see all the work that’s gone into it. It’s really amazing.”
“For ten years the Harry Potter film series has showcased the very best in British filmmaking” says Sarah Roots, Vice President, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. “We are thrilled that fans will soon be able to experience the Award-winning artistry and talent that lovingly went into producing the actual sets, props, costumes and special effects of this record-breaking film series.“
Following in the footsteps of Radcliffe, Grint and Emma Watson, guests will be able to walk on some of the most memorable and most recognisable sets, such as the Great Hall, Dumbledore’s office, the Gryffindor common room and Hagrid’s hut, among many others.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the spectacular real life animatronics in a Creature Effects workshop, which will feature iconic Harry Potter film creatures including Buckbeak the Hippogriff, Aragog, the giant spider, Fawkes the phoenix and the enormous Basilisk head.
Tickets will be available from 13th October 2011 priced at £28 for adults and £21 for children, and must be booked in advance via www.wbstudiotour.co.uk or through approved tour operators.
