Harry Potter “Making Of” studio almost ready for fans


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Harry Potter may be gone, but he’s hardly forgotten. Fans of the Boy Who Lived have ample opportunities to revisit the magical hero, from theme parks in Orlando to the original books that inspired the movie franchise. And soon enough, they’ll have another avenue to exercise their Potter passion.

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the official “Making of Harry Potter” studio tour, which will be housed in a facility outside of London, the AP reports. With assistance from Warner Bros., this museum of all things Potter will include authentic sets, props, costumes and more from the eight-film series. And all of it will be located in the site of the original filming.

“I get shudders down my spine every time I walk back in there,” said Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in all eight films. “Immediately, as soon as you go back it just fires up a decade’s worth of memories.

“I remember the first time I went in there — it was on camera. (Director) Chris Columbus specifically didn’t want us to see it before filming, because we were only 11-year-old kids,” Felton continued. “So, our reaction when we walked in there was pretty much genuine.”

Fans will be able to walk through the Great Hall of Hogwarts, the Ministry of Magic, the cupboard under the stairs that Harry called home, and several more cherished sets at the facility, which will open on March 31.

A Web site allowing fans to book tickets recently went online but experienced technical difficulties, which the studio blamed on high traffic.
