In Photos: Harry Potter Studio in London, England

Though it’s a weekday, this’ll be a long blog post with lots of wicked pictures of Harry Potter and the rest of Hogwarts, so grab your butter beers and cauldron cakes to keep you company. Channeling some inner playwright skills (ala JK Rowling) in coming up with this seven-book-series-long blogpost about Harry Potter Studios in London, England.  Haha! As she said, “No story lives unless someone wants to listen” – so listen up with your eyes, yes?

Growing up in the 90s as a kid, no one in the entire planet has gotten free from not being engrossed in the Harry Potter series. Even kids in Africa know a thing or two about Harry Potter, even Quidditch. No one’s that cool or that na├»ve not to get caught up with the idea of he-who-must-not-be-named, or the idea of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, or much more when Emma Watson played the role of Hermione Granger, I rest my case.

It’s been part of every kid’s childhood, and it’s like going to a UNESCO World Heritage Site for Potterhead cohorts - to be able to see to the first and original Harry Potter Studio in Leavesden, England. Harry Potter trivia: did you know the idea behind the story came to JK Rowling when she was sitting on a delayed train from Manchester to London? Her mind popped a young boy who learns that he is a wizard and begins attending wizard school. True story. So from pen to production to studio tour, I guarantee you that OUR measly imaginations about how Harry Potter should and could be like in real life would deceive us when it comes to Harry Potter production. The ones that are found in Leavesden are out of this (muggle) world cool!

You can original and life size props of costumes, rooms, wands, and goblets. You’ll see the photos of the different animal actors, and of green rooms, and of common rooms. The place starts of with the cupboard under the stairs the school hall then the rest of the magic stuff.

There are mini activity areas where you can do a wizarding match with Death Eaters, or get your picture published on the Portrait Walls. Especially liked the part where you could see Privet Drive, Hogwarts, and Hogsmeade! Found myself wanting to reread all the seven books once again! Calling all production and movie makers out there, I know there are Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Who galleries and museums similar to this - but if only you guys could come up with a Star Wars Studio, or a Back to the Future one, or Avengers, all the saving grace kind of experience for humanity’s sake will be enjoyed for eternity - just like the Harry Potter Studio London.
