I had an opportunity to spend few hours are Warner Brother Harry Potter Studios. It is a magical place for anyone who followed Harry Potter books and/or movies. My kids grew up with both books and movies, so I have ended up watching movies hundred times or more. When I told Revanth this morning, I might stop by HP studio today. He said, like most kids says to their parents, “you don’t know anything about the movie. How would you enjoy it”. I challenged him I know everything about the movie. He challenged me, What is the first name of Dumbledore. I paused for a while and said he does not have a first name at all. Then he asked, tell me names of any two friends of Harry Potter. I changed the topic and quickly went to IMDB, and told him the names. He said with a relief, “Not Bad” 🙂
Coming back to the WB Studio, it is a must visit place for all kids or adults (with kid in them is still intact) who followed Harry Potter. It’s just 45 minutes or less from London, and more than worth few hours of the weekend. I have enjoyed it. BTW, this is not a theme park. This is the studio where part of the movie was shot. Best part of the studio was Hogwarts castle, and it was breathtaking. First 2 minutes of the tour, after they open the door to the main hall of Hogwarts, was just awesome, and kids were in awe !!
I have assembled this 6-minute clip of my visit to WB studios (in Leavesden, UK) in a record time of about 30 minutes. As I had walked around the studio, I turned the video recording ON for chunks of 10 seconds, followed by few snaps. After coming home, I have extracted the clippings into iMovie, and overlaid with soundtrack from the Harry Potter movie. Here is the link to the footage I have assembled, for viewing pleasure of Harry Potter fans.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not see the footage, if you are planning to visit the studio, and wanted to be WOWed without the prior gyan of what you see.
Yes, I do not own copyrights anything you see / hear in this video 🙂
