Explore Harry Potter's Dark Arts in new London exhibit

Posted on

Voldemort

Something wicked this way comes—to Warner Bros. Studios in London’s The Making of Harry Potter exhibit, specifically.

Filmed on the sets of Warner Bros.’ Leavesden studio, the filmmakers who adapted J.K. Rowling’s beloved series were left with thousands of props when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2 wrapped. The Making of tour was opened as a result, and the latest installation, the Dark Arts Tour, will give fans a peek inside the more frightening corners of the magical world.

Set to open on Oct. 14, the permanent addition will cover all manner of dark magic from the film series. Voldemort’s horcruxes have been gathered together and put on display, while the costumes and set dressings from Malfoy Manor in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1 have been restored, including a 26-foot re-creation of the dark lord’s pet Nagini. The Telegraph has offered up a look at the exhibit, led by the film series’ head prop maker Pierre Bohanna.

The exhibit will house many more props from all eight films and will be launched with a two-week event focusing on the franchise’s Dark Arts, which will run from Oct. 17 to Nov. 3. If Warner Bros. needs any help promoting the event, perhaps they should ask J.K. Rowling to tweet out a cryptic clue or two about the tour. Fans will book tickets to London in no time.
