Harry Potter Special effects - Invisibility Cloak

Invisibility Cloak

The Invisibility Cloak, along with the Resurrection Stone and the Elder Wand, made the Deathly Hallows. It featured heavily in the Harry Potter movies, allowing Harry and his friends to discover deep secrets and reach forbidden lands. Harry Potter™ Studio London gives you a chance to see and feel the Invisibility Cloak. It is made from special velvet fabric and printed with Celtic symbols, giving it a rustic and royal look.

Harry Potter Special effects - Whomping Willow

Whomping Willow

Whomping Willow was a feature of the early Harry Potter movies. The temperamental tree's duel with Mr Weasley's car in the Chamber of Secrets is legendary but was a challenging task for the Special Effects team. Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson and his team had to create mechanically operated branches that would 'whomp' Mr Weasley's car and (almost) destroy it. Although no one knows where the tree is, you can see a full-sized tree trunk at the Harry Potter™ Studio London.

Harry Potter Special effects - Chamber of Secrets Door

Chamber of Secrets Door

The Chamber of Secrets Door seemed like a startling visual effect, but it wasn't. The Special Effects team created a fully operational door based on sketches provided by the Art Department. An electric motor behind the door powered the snakes to slither along the tracks while the seven snakes were cast in resin and retracted at precise timings to avoid collisions. Experience the science first-hand on your visit to the Harry Potter™ Studio London.

Harry Potter Special effects - Green Screen

Green Screen

Green Screen is a fascinating tool that helps visual and special effects teams to create amazing on-screen experiences. It featured heavily throughout the Harry Potter movies, especially during Quidditch games. Harry Potter™ Studio London allows you to fly a broomstick around London like Harry and his friends. It's a captivating experience that you'll remember forever!
