7. Harrods Exclusive Box Set of Harry Potter DVDs Require Safe Keeping Before Release

The Evening Standard is reporting that higher levels of security were required this morning at the iconic British retailer Harrods as they took stock of 300 Elder Wand DVD Box Set of all eight Harry Potter films.  The paper explains:

Muggles are so desperate to get their hands on the sets, which include a copy of Dumbledore's wand and DVDs of all eight Harry Potter films, that they were placed in the Harrods Safe Deposit underneath the famous store. Dating from 1896, the Safe Deposit is almost as impenetrable as the goblin bank.
Harrods will be hosting a special event on December 1st with a number of cast members from the Harry Potter films including James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown) and Warwick Davis (Flitwick/Griphook) prior to the DVDs UK release on December 2nd.  For the event, the Standard continues, "Harrods has transformed its third floor into a real-life Diagon Alley complete with original props and costumes from the films, including Hogwarts school uniforms, Hermione's dresses and the sword of Gryffindor."

9. Knight Bus Joins Exhibits at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London

Warner Bros. announced today that the famous triple-decker Knight Bus will become a permanent fixture at The Making of Harry Potter - Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.

Fans will have the opportunity to explore the inside of the bus and pose for photos. It will be situated next to Hagrid's motorbike and the Weasley's Ford Anglia. Photos of the Knight Bus at Leavesden Studios can be seen at this link.

John Richardson, special effects supervisor for the Harry Potter films, explained to the Watford Observer how the Knight Bus was constructed:

“Although many people think the Knight Bus was a CGI creation, it is in fact a real-life working bus. To construct it, we cut up two iconic Routemaster buses, reworked the structure and bolted it all back together to create one bus with three decks. It took weeks to put it together and it was no easy task. Routemasters are 60 years old, so we had to do a lot of strengthening of the structure.

Another issue we had was filming on location in London. During the shooting of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban we found we could not drive it across the capital due to the number of low bridges. This meant that we had to transport the bus in two pieces between locations and put it back together between filming."

The Making of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will open on March 31, 2012. Tickets can be pre-booked on their website; tickets will not be available for purchase at the studios.
