I can still remember my first Potter movie, mesmerized by the flying car, moving photos in the newspapers, Harry Potter’s big round eyes as well as all the magic & fantasy that went into the show. I was naturally excited to visit Warner Bros.’ Leavesden studio where the Harry Potter movie magic was made for over a decade. The walking tour features authentic sets, costumes and props from the Harry Potter film series and showcases the British artistry, special effects and animatronics that went into producing these iconic movies which grossed over US$7.7 billion worldwide. I wanna make some magic myself – “taller, boobier, prettier please!”
