Ever felt a deep desire to become a Death Eater? Or maybe you just want to learn what it’s like to bring them to life on the big screen? Then WB Studios Tour’s Dark Arts Week is for you!
Lord Voldemort’s loyal henchmen the Death Eaters descended on Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter – yesterday in preparation for Darks Arts Week.
For the first time secrets behind the Dark Arts will be revealed to all visitors attending the Studio Tour this half-term holiday.
For one week only visitors will learn how the Dark Arts were brought to life in the films, discover how the costumes were developed for the most infamous characters, learn about the make-up techniques used to help the actors get into character and come face-to-face with Death Eaters.
Other special features include a ‘lesson’ in the Potions classroom where the real contents of the potion jars will be explained.
Over 500 of the original jars are displayed all with handwritten labels. Some of the few remaining Prophecy orbs will be on show at the Malfoy Manor fireplace with revelations about their use during filming in the Hall of Prophecy.
Personally, I’d be most excited to find out what was really in the potion jars… How about you?
