Special effects and choreography experts from the Harry Potter film series will be involved in creating the activities for Wand Week.
Visitors will discover first-hand how fight scenes were developed and the incredible amount of planning that went into each wand movement. Original moulds, concept art and wand designs will be showcased in the attraction and, for the first time, Mr Ollivander’s costume will be on display at the entrance of his famous wand shop. The Studio Tour’s knowledgeable staff members will be on hand to share behind-the-scenes secrets and to teach the wand moves seen in the films.
Harry’s Wand Facts:
In the first and second films, the wands looked quite plain. This was drastically changed in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ when the wands were given distinctive shapes and carvings, reflecting the owner’s personality.
17,000 hand-decorated and hand-labelled wand boxes filled the Ollivanders set during filming.
Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, wore out over 60 wands during the making of the film series.
Wand Week will take place from Saturday 16th to Sunday 24th February.
