for the first time ever, visitors will get the chance to step inside number four, privet drive and peer into the dursleys’ living room as the exterior set is opened especially for the studio tour’s 15th anniversary celebrations of the film, harry potter and the philosopher’s stone.

For one week only, visitors will have the opportunity to walk through the front door and look into the dursleys’ front room where hundreds of harry’s hogwarts letters created by minalima, the graphic designers for all eight harry potter films, will be suspended in the air as though they’ve flown through the fireplace as they did in the iconic scene from harry potter and the philosopher’s stone. The letter that started harry’s adventure at hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry featured so prominently in the film that an astonishing 10,000 of these envelopes were created for the first harry potter film and were even printed on extra lightweight paper so the owls could carry them.

Fans will remember number four, privet drive as the muggle home where harry spent most of his childhood with his aunt petunia, uncle vernon and cousin dudley. During production, set decorators were tasked with filling the house with quirky pieces of furniture and had lots of fun sourcing the ugliest sofas, worst tiles and most unattractive curtains possible which will be on display in the dressed set.

Also on display for the first time in the studio tour will be the dursleys’ costumes which proved to be a rich source of inspiration for costume designer judianna makovsky. She remembers them being the most fun to dress, creating clothes that appeared out of date and pretentious for mr and mrs dursley, as well as hideous jumpers for young dudley.

First up, we have the ‘Moment’ artwork made for the DVDs, which pulls together the main cast and a specially chosen vignette from each movie. In celebration of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film, Angie told us that the team were keen to give magical creatures centre stage. We’re sure you will concur that Dobby deserves to be centre stage on the cover of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.

‘You’ll see that there’s detail, and storyline elements from each film,’ Angie explained. ‘A fresh way to look at it is we’ve included a vignette from each film, which highlights a beast or a creature. It’s intended for new fans, but these elements are really what pulled at the heartstrings of lots of old fans as well.’


Quote:
In contrast, the ‘Iconic’ artwork will grace the new Blu-ray covers, and offers a much more abstract approach. Upon each cover, eagle-eyed fans will recognise this sequence of images as hugely seminal visual moments from each story, such as glossy stills of Slytherin’s locket, a smoking Goblet of Fire, and, of course, the Sorting Hat.

‘We love these pieces of art, they are different from anything we’ve ever done before,’ Angie said. ‘It’s looking at it for the fans who know what these objects are. If you look closer, at the Sorting Hat, for example, you can see Harry’s glasses. Or if you look at Half-Blood Prince, you have Tom Riddle’s memory vial in the middle, as a little hidden gem.’

These are all rumors and speculations.

It seems like fans' wishes for a possible Harry Potter and the Cursed Child adaptation to the film screen might slowly be coming to fruition. If this is true, the eighth story in Harry Potter's saga, post-Deathly Hallows epilogue, would be the ninth (and maybe tenth if split into two) feature film.

Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. recently trademarked the name 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child', and this can include rights to everything from films to merchandise. The trademark was set in the U.K. though the company listed is Warner Bros. in the U.S., the production company behind the first eight Harry Potter movies.

The full list of items trademarked for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child can be read here.

Please note that this is by no means confirmation that there will be Cursed Child film(s), and that Warner Bros. is probably too busy with the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie trilogy to jump-start the continuation of the Harry Potter theatrical installments.

Author J.K. Rowling did say months ago that it would not be adapted for film, but as history has shown with the author, minds can be changed. Daniel Radcliffe, star of the first eight movies, also said he would consider returning to play Harry dependent on the quality of the script.

As a final reminder, the 15th anniversary celebrations of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will take place from October 15-November 4, 2016. Some of the highlights can be read below.

Between 15th October and 4th November, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is giving fans a final opportunity to see the best of the year so far. The Studio Tour is bringing back the favourite props and costumes as voted for by fans on social media. The favourites will be returned to the Tour as a special feature to celebrate 15 years since the cinematic release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Fans voted in their thousands to bring back a favourite from this year’s half-giant Hagrid feature; Hagrid’s deconstructed costume. This specially designed version of Hagrid’s costume even incorporated a cooling system to help body double Martin Bayfield cope with the heat during long days of filming. Visitors will see the tubes which were hand-stitched into the fabric that had cold water running through them to bring down the temperature.

Our interactive special effects ‘UP’ broomstick was also chosen by fans. Visitors will be able to stand next to the broomstick, shout ‘UP’ just like a Hogwarts student, and watch the broomstick fly into their hands.

In addition, the iconic Great Hall set, as seen in all but one of the Harry Potter films, will be dressed for the occasion with a section of its long tables laden with a Hallowe’en feast including red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops. Eagle-eyed visitors will also spot the costume of Defence against the Dark Arts Professor Quirrell. Voldemort’s face was digitally added to the back of Quirrell’s head and a model of this can be found in the Creature Effects area.

This will also be the last chance for visitors to see the original Sorting Hat and stool in the Great Hall and peer into the Dursleys’ living room as the exterior set of number four, Privet Drive is re-opened especially for the Studio Tour’s 15th anniversary celebrations of Harry’s first year at Hogwarts.

Highlights include walking through the Great Hall where so many famous scenes were shot, seeing the treasures stored in Dumbledore’s office and strolling down Diagon Alley. Tickets must be pre-booked at www.wbstudiotour.co.uk or by calling the Studio Tour’s Visitor Services Team on 0345 084 0900 and cannot be bought at the attraction.

Actor Terence Bayler, who played Slytherin ghost the Bloody Baron in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philospher's Stone in 2001, reportedly died this week. He was 86 years old.

The New Zealond-born Bayler, who has been acting in film and television since the 1950s, was also famously known as Mr. Gregory in the Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and featured in Terry Gillian’s Time Bandits and Brazil.

Our thoughts and condolences to Bayler's family and loved ones in this tragic time.
