beginning with a “harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone” tour in 2016, “the harry potter film concert series” will reformat each harry potter film into an orchestral concert experience that offers audiences a live symphony orchestra performance of the entire score in-sync with the film, which will be simultaneously projected onto a high-definition 40-foot screen.

“the original dialogue and sound effects will be kept intact,” cineconcerts president justin freer told variety. “all the music is pulled out of the film, so that’s one of the interesting challenges — mixing the live music against the dialogue and the effects.”

“the harry potter film concert series” will premiere at philadelphia’s mann center for the performing arts on june 23 with the philadelphia orchestra. The san diego symphony, nashville symphony, milwaukee symphony orchestra, grand rapids pops and symphony silicon valley will perform john williams’ “harry potter and the sorcerer’s stone” score during later stops on the north american tour.

tickets for the philadelphia premiere of “the harry potter film concert series” will be available through ticketmaster, manncenter.org and mann center’s box office starting feb. 20.

This Easter, a huge surprise is in store for film fans as Warner Bros. Studio Tour London reveals the colossal efforts taken by producers, costume designers and thespecial effects teams to create Hogwarts’ famous groundskeeper – Rubeus Hagrid. The character who reveals the wizarding world to Harry Potter is celebrated during a special feature where lovers of the film series can understand what went into bringing this half-giant to life on screen.

From March 25th to April 17th 2016, visitors to the Studio Tour will see the costumes worn by Harry’s gargantuan guardian and find out how they turned 6’1” Robbie Coltrane into the half-giant Hagrid. During production two costumes were created for Hagrid, one which was worn by Coltrane and the other which was made 25 per cent larger and usedby 6‘10’’ England rugby star Martin Bayfield who appeared as Hagrid in scenes where he needed to be bigger than the setting around him.

In order to exaggerate Bayfield’s already significant frame, his suit was adapted to increase his size. As well as his complete costume, a deconstructed version will be featured at the Studio Tour showing the techniques used to create the gigantic character. As Bayfield had to wear the outfit for extended periods a special cooling system was incorporated to help him cope with the heat. Tubes were stitched into the fabric which had cold water running through them to bring down the temperature.

As fans of the first film will remember, Hagrid wears an oversized coat made from moleskin. As the costume department wanted to stay true to the description, they cut imitation fur into mole shapes and sewed them together, each complete with tiny ears and tails.

In addition to Hagrid costumes, filmmaking experts from Nick Dudman’s team will be working in the Creature Effects department. One of the early encounters that Harry has with Hagrid is a trip to the vaults of Gringott’s and the team will be demonstrating techniques used to create the prosthetic masks worn by Goblins at Gringott’s bank.Made from silicon, each one was given a particular personality to ensure they all looked different.

Scholastic will publish a new edition of the Hogwarts Library and classics collection on June 28, 2016, but this time it will not include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, authored by Newt Scamander and J.K. Rowling, as it has in the past.

Since Warner Bros. announced earlier this year that Scholastic would begin releasing movie tie-in books for Fantastic Beasts later this year, the titles will be sold separately going forward.

As the spine of the box set shows, the books included are Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard - all of course written by the Harry Potter author.
