The Warner Bros Studio Tour draws in thousands of Harry Potter fans every year eager to explore the original film sets, props and costumes. However, Hogwarts in the Snow allows fans to see the wonderful world of wizardry like they’ve never seen it before!
The legendary Great Hall may not be decked with boughs of holly but it’ll definitely impress all passersby. The infamous dining hall tables are decorated with flaming Christmas puddings, roast turkey and cherry-stuffed hams – all of which are props, sorry. Wreaths, garlands and Christmassy ornaments are also in place helping to recreate the seasonal feasts from the films. That’s not all, head to the famous Gryffindor common room to find Christmas cards made by the actual cast!
In other exciting news, this will be the first year that the magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley have also undergone a festive transformation. You’ll find the cobbled streets covered in layers of snow and plenty of other Christmassy installations in store.
For those interested in the behind the scenes process, you can learn all about filmmaker’s snow. There are three types used in the film – one that glistens, one that crunches, and one that floats, and you’ll be able to get your hands on each. If you’ve been dreaming of a white Christmas, this may be the next best thing.
