You’ve probably heard about Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter (which I think we’ll usually shorten to the HP Studio Tour) and you perhaps already have your tickets booked for when it opens in March of 2012. The sets are being opened up for fans to visit and discover the secrets from the making of the Harry Potter film series.
Well, today the official facebook page revealed the exciting news that the Diagon Alley street set will be included in the tour, as well the sets of some its shops AND the set of Gringotts bank.
“It’s official. Boris Johnson has revealed that you will be able to step onto the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley and take a peek into Ollivanders wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium here at the Studio Tour.”
Here is a photo of London Mayor Boris Johnson standing in Diagon Alley, just as we could be doing one day soon!
Update: We now have a couple of videos, from the BBC and HeyUGuys.co.uk, of Boris Johnson and Warner Bros UK president Josh Berger discussing the tour from the Diagon Alley set. Boris displays some rusty knowledge of the series but nevertheless sounds very enthusiastic about it. Thanks to Snitchseeker for these.
