Once upon a time, not very long ago at all there was a bus. It was covered wheel to top in Harry Potter images and had the words Warner Bros. studio Tour London sprawled across it. It had the very important job of picking up passengers and carrying them 15 minutes aways to the Leavesden Studios that hid a magical world.
This magical world was full to the brim of sets and props and behind the scenes secrets of the hugely successful Harry Potter series. When it first came into view it made people feel like they had won the golden ticket to see the inner workings of Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Even the foyer had people looking around in awe. The walls were decorated with pictures of the cast and the windows of the souvenir shop looked like they belonged in Diagon Alley.
You all know I’m gonna be there on the open day (so is Rupert Grint according to reports) but guess who has been invited to a preview of the tour before it opens to the general public. Continue reading
I have a weird urge to just write a blog, you know when you just get that urge to write when you have nothing to write about. So I’ve given in and I’m going to ramble, unfortunately for you.
Guess what I’m excited for, like stupidly excited. Well, there’s a couple of things actually but at the moment I mean The Hunger Games coming to the big screen. Everybody I talk to about it are really excited too. The only other films I have looked forward to this much were the Harry Potter ones. Although I’m nervous too, there’s every chance they might screw it up like Eragon was screwed up, now that’s a travesty of a book to screen adaptation if ever I saw one. Continue reading
So, I’ve made some progress with my Major Project. Continue reading
I have tickets. For the opening day, for a tour in the afternoon. I absolutely cannot wait (well actually I can, the opening day is in March and that mean’s it’ll be just over a month left until I need to hand in my Major Project).
Anyway, just in case you don’t know the London Studio Tours is in Leavesdon Studios, where the Harry Potter films were made. The tour lets you see the actual sets, like the Great Hall and all the props will be there such as the wands that were used.
I spent way too much, but it’ll be worth it. I wish I could day more but I have to leave soon so that have much time to say anything. Does anyone else have tickets booked for the tour?
