Well guess all those rumors you hear about the camera adding 1700 kilotons is true. The Hogwarts model, used for exterior shots in all the Harry Potter films, is roughly the size of your childhood bedroom. Or in other real estate lingo comparisons, the size of 15 NYC post-grad apartments combined.
While everyone else in the world’s going gaga over the possible nude photos of Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn, I’m more focused on this shocking photo. Just because it doesn’t have nipples, doesn’t mean it’s not worth talking about.
The model’s all part of an amazing new Harry Potter tour happening next month in London. An article in the the Daily Mail says that the tour will open up the magical work of Hogwarts and Harry Potter to fans around the world.
“For the first time, the doors are going to be opened for everyone at the studio where it first began.You’ll have the chance to go behind-the-scenes and see many things the camera never showed. From breathtakingly detailed sets to stunning costumes, props and animatronics, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London provides a unique showcase of the extraordinary British artistry, technology and talent that went into making the most successful film series of all time.”
So in short, it’s the best and the worst thing that’s ever happened to Harry Potter fans. On one hand, we now have a totally new and awesome place to fantasize about visiting. On the other hand, they’re making it so damn hard to let go.
On the third hand, look at the model in action. It looks so real! So big!
