Warner Bros. Studio Tour says it that way – For two nights only, brave witches, wizards and Muggles are invited to discover ‘Hogwarts after Dark’ at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.

The spooky evening will begin with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapés before stepping onto the red carpet through the doors of the wizarding school into the Great Hall, which will be transformed for Hallowe’en. The enchanted Great Hall ceiling will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, while the long tables will be laden with a Hallowe’en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.

After taking your seats, you will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner and drinks surrounded by the original props and costumes. All before being greeted with lanterns and invited to follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest set, where you will be able to enjoy your desserts in the company of magical creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula.

Throughout the evening, Death Eaters will be roaming the attraction dressed in the original costumes from the film series allowing you to see up close the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks.

After dinner, you will be invited to explore the Studio Tour after hours, admiring sets such as the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley’s kitchen from The Burrow, before meeting members of the Prop Making Department who will be revealing the filmmaking secrets behind the ceiling full of enchanted pumpkins.

The evening continues with the chance to learn wand combat moves from Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, in preparation for a live duel with Death Eaters.

A refreshing Butterbeer will be provided in the Backlot Café and you will then have the opportunity to explore a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed, the music becomes more foreboding and the wizarding shopping street set is patrolled by Death Eaters.

Guests will be seated at round tables of 10 or 12 and tickets are priced at £240pp. Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 12th September at 10am (available to purchase online or by calling the Visitor Services Team on 0345 084 0900).

Jim Kay’s illustrated edition now reads like a newspaper from the Wizarding World.

 

Finally, our experience reading an actual Harry Potter book will feel like the characters themselves do when reading The Daily Prophet, moving pictures and all.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is now available as an ebook featuring whimsical animations, thanks to Amazon’s Kindle in Motion technology. The new Kindle in Motion ebook takes Jim Kay’s 2015 illustrated edition of the book and animates a few sequences, such as the portrait of Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore. Check out the trailer above to see what else you can expect from the ebook.

“There’s a painter that was active in England in Henry the Eighth’s court called Holbein, and he’d do these beautiful oil portraits of very wealthy members of the court. What I like about early portrait painting is that you often have images, objects that are representative of that person’s trade or character,” Kay told EW in 2015 about the Dumbledore drawing. “So in Dumbledore’s portrait, the dried plant there is honesty, but on the honesty is also a little camouflaged praying mantis insect. It’s saying there is honesty, but with a catch, with Dumbledore.”

Aside from Dumbledore, this version of Sorcerer’s Stone will also feature animations of Harry and Hagrid traveling by boat, or the smoke wafting off the train at Platform 9 and 3/4.

The Kindle in Motion version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is available now, exclusively through Amazon.

The rules of the Triwizard Tournament, which is about to take place at Hogwarts, only allow wizards over the age of seventeen to enter. So Harry can only daydream about winning.
Then, to his surprise, on Hallowe’en when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, his name is picked out of the magical cup. Harry will face life-endangering tasks, dragons and Dark wizards.
He’ll have to rely on the help of his friends if he is to make it through the contest alive.

That’s the official blurb of the fourth novel of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and it’s been almost 12 years since the fourth movie adaption was released. Time flies! I added many HQ posters, promotional images and episode stills of it to the photo gallery. (More to come the next days due to a new image source!) Enjoy!

    Today, August 26, probably one of the most hated Harry Potter characters celebrates her birthday: (Professor) Dolores Jane Umbridge. Right from the start, from the first line the character was introduced by, J.K. Rowling succeeded in making the readers dislike Umbridge. Not only as the defence against dark arts teacher, the headmistress, the High Inquisitor, the Senior Undersecretary or whatever role she took in the Harry Potter series, Dolores Umbridge successfully managed to leave a negative impression with everything she said or did.

    “When they entered the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom they found Professor Umbridge already seated at the teacher’s desk, wearing the fluffy pink cardigan of the night before and the black velvet bow on top of her head. Harry was again reminded forcibly of a large fly perched unwisely on top of an even larger toad.”

    But, the Harry Potter series wouldn’t be so admired and such a successful saga if it hasn’t been for its villains as much as for its heroes. Dolores plays a huge part in the novels and the movies and will always be a celebrated part of the series. Therefore, happy birthday, Dolores Umbridge.

    I finished adding the HQ images – posters, movie stills and promotional images – of the third movie of the series, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” to the photo gallery. The same applies to this movie, screen captures will be added belatedly.

    At this point I would also like to add that many critics, and also fans of the (movie) series, claim that this movie was definitely the weakest of all eight. They say that many important details were left out, the acting was not quite convincing and book details are portrayed differently. I have to admit that this is definitely not one of my favorite movies, and not one of my favorite novels of the Harry Potter saga, but some negative rating definitely does not apply.

    Happy 29th birthday to the one who portrayed our Ron Weasley for almost 10 years! Today, August 24, we wish the very talented actor Rupert Grint a wonderful birthday. We’d also like to use the opportunity to say thank you. Thanks for giving Ron Weasley a face for so many years. And such a brilliant one. We couldn’t think of another actor who could’ve played Ron better in the movies.

    Truth be told, it’s hard to name one favorite Ron scene that Rupert played. There are so many good ones. He’s made me laugh so many times, sometimes only because of his facial expressions, for instance in the spider scene in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets or when he plays Ron’s nevosity due to his first Quidditch game. There are so many more scenes we might mention that we loved Ron – or let’s say Rupert as Ron – in.

    So, again. Thank you for being such a wonderful Ron for 10 years! We wish you only the best of everything on that special day of yours. Make sure to celebrate it with your beloved ones.
