From Easter, groups are invited to discover behind-the-scenes secrets of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Warner Bros. Studio Tour London launches a special feature dedicated to the fourth film.
As part of the feature, The Goblet of Fire will be returned to the Great Hall for the first time since filming finished in 2010.
Every visitor to the Great Hall will see a live special effects demonstration showing how the Triwizard Champions’ parchments were expelled from the Goblet, receiving a souvenir parchment to remember their visit.
Other features from the film will include the Prefects’ Bathroom, complete with multi-coloured water running from each of the 53 spouts, as seen on-screen.
Visitors to the Studio Tour during the special run will also discover secrets of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named in a display demonstrating how Voldemort’s seemingly simple costume was adapted to show both his strength and vulnerability throughout the films.
In addition, many unseen props and costumes from the Triwizard Tournament will be on display including the boot Portkey that transported Harry, Hermione and the Weasley family to the 422nd Quidditch World Cup.
Tom Riddle’s grave will be displayed in the Studio Tour allowing a 360 degree view of the sculpture. The sculpture was created before the details of Voldemort’s lineage were known, meaning the dates had to be changed in post-production.
Lastly, visitors will see a new addition to the majestic Hogwarts castle model; a scale version of the Beauxbatons carriage complete with winged horses poised to land on the Hogwarts grounds for the first time ahead of the Triwizard championship.
The Studio Tour’s Goblet of Fire feature will run from 30th March to 23rd September and is included in the ticket price. Groups are welcome at the Studio Tour and special rates are available.
GTOs are required to make bookings in advance; you can call 0345-084 0900 or visit wbstudiotour.co.uk to do so.
