    OPENING 6TH APRIL For the first time ever at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, you are invited to enter the set of Gringotts Wizarding Bank as we unveil our biggest expansion to date. The goblin-run bank, which features in J.K. Rowling’s books and the film series, has been recreated as part of an expansion of the Warner Bros Studio Tour attraction near Watford. Key moments at the bank include Harry’s first trip to Diagon Alley, where Gringotts is located, in Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone. Visitors to the Warner Bros Studio in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, will be able to walk through the grand marbled foyer of the wizarding bank. Lined with towering pillars, the hall is decorated with chandeliers and will feature goblins working away at their desks filled with inkwells, quills, ledgers and piles of galleons, sickles and knuts — the currency of Rowling’s world. In the main hall, visitors can learn about the costumes, prosthetics, dentures and masks used to bring goblin characters to life. Guests will then go to the depths of the Lestrange vault and see the witch’s many treasures. From Harry Potter first discovering Diagon Alley to the famous trio escaping on a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon in their quest for a Horcrux, Gringotts Wizarding Bank played an important role in the Harry Potter film series. On 6th April, we will unveil a permanent addition allowing visitors to walk through the wizarding bank of Gringotts, the Lestrange vault, a gallery of goblins and so much more. Lined by towering marble pillars, the grand banking hall will be decorated with three magnificent crystal chandeliers and finished with real brass leaf. Inkwells, quills, ledgers and piles of Galleons, Sickles and Knuts will complete the goblin tellers’ desks as seen on screen. The Prop-making Department, led by Pierre Bohanna, created over 210,000 coins for the final two films alone. Gringotts Wizarding Bank is famously run by goblins. Walking through the imposing marble columns, visitors will discover the costumes and prosthetics belonging to Bogrod, Griphook and many other goblin bankers. Each prosthetic mask took weeks to create, with every hair individually inserted and veins painstakingly painted by hand. It took four hours to transform actor Warwick Davis into Griphook in the films which included him wearing black contact lenses and dentures with extremely sharp teeth to complete the goblin look. Once through the banking hall of Gringotts, visitors will enter the depths of the Lestrange Vault used to store the treasures of Bellatrix Lestrange including the Sword of Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup, one of Voldemort’s many Horcruxes. During filming 38,000 pieces of rubberised treasure were created for the Lestrange vault including 7,014 Hufflepuff Cups. Here, visitors can try out a unique photo opportunity allowing them to step inside the Lestrange vault and surround themselves with treasure. Officially opening on Saturday 6th April, the 16,500sqft Gringotts Wizarding Bank expansion will be the Studio Tour’s biggest addition to date and has been designed and built by many of the original crew members who worked on the hugely successful magical film series including Oscar® and BAFTA winning Production Designer Stuart Craig, Construction Manager Paul Hayes and Head Propmaker Pierre Bohanna. Tickets must be pre-booked and all extra features are included in the ticket price. BOOK TICKETS Have you booked your ticket yet?

    I'm not sure if this is in the books, but there's a deleted scene in Deathly Hallows where Aunt Petunia tells Harry "you didn't just lose a mother that night in Godric's Hollow. I lost a sister". I wish this had been in the movie because it shows that she did care about Lily, and I kind of feel like it's her way of apologising to Harry. Grief affects everyone in different ways, and I think had she had time to grieve for her sister (and maybe not have been married to Vernon) then she would have been a little nicer to Harry. Because Harry just arrived, with no prior warning, and she had a young child the same age, she had no to time to really process what had happened to her little sister, and no time to grieve for her. I think it would have been nice to see that scene, just so we could have made peace with Petunia, and it may have helped some people understand why she treated Harry so badly. Certainly after I saw that deleted scene, my opinion of Petunia changed!

    I watch the movies over and over and over and ... (you get the picture). I start at the beginning and once I finish them I start all over again! I've watched them so many times I can usually tell you the next line that will be said. But, I always notice things I didn't notice before, or end up with a million more questions each time I watch them! People always tell me I'm "very observant" as I notice the small details in movies that most people miss! I clearly need to get a life 😂

    I have a small collections of Funko POP figures, amd Funko Rock Candy figures. I used to get them a subscription service but stopped due to plans to move and not knowing how much space I'd have to put them! I do hope to add to my collection as well. I keep most of them in their boxes for the time being, until I have space to display them, however Harry, Ron and Hermione that aren't in boxes were the first figures I got so they are out on display! I love the Funko Rock Candy figures the most, as they are a bit smaller but more detailed, however there aren't as many figures in that collection as there are in the Funko POP figures!

    Wow, so they would have had to record those scenes twice! So interesting, yet also must have been frustrating for the cast!

    So, I'm probably gonna get some hate for this but I just cannot stand Ginny Weasley. Now, Yes, I have read the books and she is wayy better in the books. But even then, I just still don't get the hype about her character. I don't hate her but I don't get the whole "Ginny is so cool" thing. To me, the only ark she really had was she was the only daughter in the Weasley family and she was really good at quidditch, but for me I felt she was really boring. Plus, I can't tell you how much I dislike "Hinny". Harry and Ginny just make no sense whatsoever. Like one day Harry just knew Ginny as Ron's little sister and the next day his was talking about how nice her skin is and that he's falling in love? Sounds like a love potion to me... And sure in the books there was way more development and it DID make more sense, but it still was kinda odd. I also felt like she was funny and more bad girl type in the books but I still can't find a way to like her. I felt like she was a pretty forced character and she was made important at the very end. And I mean come on, I love J.K but Ginny actually getting with Harry is, first off boring-ly convenient, like of course Harry just magically realizes that he's been in love with his best friends little sister all this time and Ginny has this huge school girl crush on "The Harry Potter" for most of her Hogwarts years and Harry is her older brothers best friend, and then he just starts loving her. I mean cmon, that is so forced and honestly kinda boring. Is this just me? What are your thoughts?

    I love Ginny. The movies aren't canon and don't matter, but in the books she's a wonderful character: funny, strong, warm. Someone else was moving not far away, stooping over another prone figure on the ground. He was feet away from her when he realized it was Ginny. He stopped in his tracks. She was crouching over a girl who was whispering for her mother. “It’s all right,” Ginny was saying. “It’s okay. We’re going to get you inside.” “But I want to go home,” whispered the girl. “I don’t want to fight anymore!” “I know,” said Ginny, and her voice broke. “It’s going to be all right.” – DH A bit snarky and mischievous. “They could hear people complaining; one surly voice said, “I can’t see no gas…”“That’s because it’s colorless,” said Ginny in a convincingly exasperated voice, “but if you want to walk through it, carry on, then we’ll have your body as proof for the next idiot who didn’t believe us…” – OotP Harry: “And Ginny, don’t call Ron a prat, you’re not the Captain of this team —"Ginny: "Well, you seemed too busy to call him a prat and I thought someone should —” – HBP Ginny: “You’d think people had better things to gossip about. Three dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it’s true you’ve got a hippogriff tattooed across your chest."Harry: "What did you tell her?"Ginny: "I told her it’s a Hungarian Horntail. Much more macho."Harry: "Thanks. And what did you tell her Ron’s got?"Ginny: "A Pygmy Puff, but I didn’t say where.” – HBP And she gets Harry like no other character, except maybe Ron. Where Hermione will nag and guilt trip Harry when she's worried about him, Ginny gets right to root of the problem and gives him support and/or a sharp wake up call. Harry to Ginny: “I didn’t want anyone to talk to me,” said Harry, who was feeling more and more nettled.“Well, that was a bit stupid of you,” said Ginny angrily, “seeing as you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels.”Harry remained quite still as the impact of these words hit him. Then he wheeled around.“I forgot,” he said.“Lucky you,” said Ginny coolly. – OotP She's a survivor. She went through an incredibly traumatic experience in her first year at Hogwarts and came out stronger. Harry respects her. He laughs at her jokes. He enjoys her company. They share interets. Harry knows that she's strong enough to be with someone like him. Anyone could fall in love with Ginny, because she's wonderful. It takes Harry a few years because he's preoccupied with another girl and with all the chaos in his life, but once Ginny is no longer a child he sees her for who she really is. There's zero reason why she's need a love potion. Harry is lucky to have her and they're perfect for each other.

    Hola all, I know this is my first post and I'm asking for something but I am really struggling to find a travel mug Sainsburys had for sale last year. It was a red ceramic mug with a black plastic lid that pushed into the top of the mug and had a sliding bit you drank out of. I've contacted Half Moon Bay and Sainsburys to ask if I could have the name of the supplier or if they did the mug but no luck. Has anyone else got the same mug by any chance and has the packaging to tell me the supplier or manufacturer? Thanks in advance for your help.

    US troops celebrate Thanksgiving by having a HarryPotter themed dinner in South Korea Video Source: EuroNews US troops celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with a Harry Potter-themed feast on Thursday at an army base in South Korea. Roast turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing were served to hundreds of soldiers at Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, which lies about 100 kilometres from the border with reclusive North Korea. At the dining facility decorated with Harry Potter flags, US soldiers said this celebration helps them to deal with homesickness. The US currently has around 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea. North Korea has long demanded their removal as one of the conditions for giving up its nuclear and missile programs.
