This summer, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is inviting kids of all ages to experience its first ever Summer Spells feature. Running from the 26th of July until the 2nd of September, Summer Spells will give visitors the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the Harry Potter films and discover firsthand how spells such as Wingardium Leviosa were brought to life on screen and how details such as wand movements that accompanied the spells were developed.
Staff will be on hand to assist aspiring wizards with their wand battle technique, aided by an interactive experience and tips from “Ward Combat expert” Paul Harris. There'll be special effects demonstrations created by BAFTA-winning Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson as well as specially made costumes on view which helped the cast of the Harry Potter films to visualize the glowing effect of Patronus.
