What’s Hot | 16th Aug 2022 | 2min read

Something magical has arrived at Warner Bros. Studios. Get ready to be enchanted by Mandrakes and Magical Creatures, the newest studio tour addition.

Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed into the Great Hall to the Frog Choir scene as seen in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Here, you’ll see the costume of conductor of the choir, Professor Flitwick.

That’s not all. You’ll also come across your favourite magical creatures as you continue to explore the Studio Tour.

Look out for Cornish Pixies, Professor Dumbledore’s beloved Fawkes and the animatronic Book of Monsters.

Plus, in the Creatures Workshop, you’ll learn how Thestrals and Mandrakes were brought to life onscreen using scale models and CGI.

Other new attractions include:

Professor Sprout’s Greenhouse

Step into the greenhouse filled with exotic and magical plants plus a potted Mandrake as part of the interactive display.

Based on a scene from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you’ll also get up close and personal with a Venomous Tentacula hanging from the ceiling.

New Exterior Sets

Iconic exterior sets like the mountain from the Hogwarts courtyard and a 1:3 scale-version of the Weasleys’ Burrow are now permanently part of the Studio Tour.

Did you know that during production, the Weasleys’ Burrow took filmmakers 14 weeks to build but only six minutes to burn down in the iconic scene where the Death Eaters set the home ablaze?

Find out more about the camera trickery behind this, as seen in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
