New Information on Leavesden Studios Fan Attraction

The Times has a new article where it talks about what WB will be doing with Leavesden Studios.

As the final two films of JK Rowling’s series approach completion, a new “Hogwarts experience” is to open in the studios where they are made. The visitor attraction will include recreations of some of the boy wizard’s haunts, including the Hogwarts school hall and Albus Dumbledore’s study. The plans, part of an expansion of Leavesden, the Warner Bros studio in Hertfordshire, are Britain’s answer to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a 20-acre attraction at the Universal resort in Orlando, Florida, due to open this Friday.Although the Leavesden site will not be as large and will consciously not be a theme park, it will provide fans with the real costumes and sets used in the films. There will be replicas of characters, as well as clothes worn by Hermione Granger, played by Emma Watson, Voldemort, Rubeus Hagrid, Professor Filius Flitwick and the Weasley family.
