  2. 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? We have, if you're going on the 6th April do let us know, we'll hopefully setup a mini fan meet! Source: standard.co.uk wbstudiotour.co.uk/gringotts

    Harry Potter Theories

    See I'm still not sure..... Harry first realised his attraction for Ginny didn't he in Half-Blood Prince after finding out about dating Dean Thomas. Whereas Ron’s experience with love potion are very noticable and very 'in your face'. Harry's was gradual....

    Harry Potter Theories

    I can't see Ginny slipping Harry a love potion, the way she's explained in the books and her ethics doesn't really match up. What's your take on it?

  12. All 8 Harry Potter Films Coming To NETFLIX 15th January 2019 Calling all witches and wizards, on January 15th it's time to go back to Hogwarts All eight films will appear on the platform on 15th January, for all of its subscribers in Australia & NewZealand. The news was announced via Twitter with the simple message: “ Calling all witches and wizards, on January 15th it's time to go back to Hogwarts ". Unfortunately the series will only be shown on Netflix Australia & Netflix NewZealand ONLY - Sorry USA, Canada and sorry to the rest of us in the UK too! It’s not the first time Harry Potter has been rumored for release on Netflix. The last big wave came in October when Netflix in France announced it would be streaming the franchise in November 2018. Many news outlets didn’t look very hard into the detail here and decided that everyone is getting the franchise. The main reason as to why the Harry Potter series isn’t coming to Netflix is simply down to licensing rights. In the US, UK and Canada the rights are most likely either unobtainable or far too expensive for Netflix to purchase.
