Hogwarts Great Hall

The first time I went to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour was in 2015, just after they had added the Hogwarts Express and Kings Cross set to the tour. At the end of November 2019 we made a return visit, mainly to see how different it was dressed for Christmas and with snow.

“It was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laid with glittering golden plates and goblets. At the top of the hall was another long table where the teachers were sitting… The hundreds of faces staring at them looked like pale lanterns in the flickering candlelight… Harry looked upward and saw a velvety black ceiling dotted with stars… It was hard to believe there was a ceiling there at all, and that the Great Hall didn’t simply open on to the heaven.”

At the Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour during late November and in December dress the Great Hall for Christmas.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Though as you might expect the Making of Harry Potter Warner Brothers Studio Tour is in the main about the eight Harry Potter films, there was in the foyer some costumes and props from the more recent Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films.

I am expecting that in the future the tour will expand to have these films in the tour as well.

last time we were in the foyer waiting to go in, suspended from the ceiling was the magical flying Ford Anglia. This time there was a dragon!

This of course is a model of the dragon that was chained in the vaults in Gringotts.

Hogwarts in the Snow

Last time I was really impressed with the Hogwarts model, incredible detail and modelling, and how realistic it looks (for a fantasy school) both in miniature form and on on screen.

The snow just adds to the model and it looks great.

We’ve seen the teaser, now we have the trailer

After the teaser, we now have the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

When I saw the teaser I was impressed with the shiny new Millennium Falcon, however I wasn’t sure about the story, as there wasn’t much to get from the teaser.

The new trailer though does provide a deeper insight into the story and I am now looking forward to seeing the film at the end of May.

I really enjoyed Rogue One and I think Solo has a lot to live up to, to match the quality of that film.
