'Harry Potter' museum tour to launch spring 2012

Who wants to go to Hogwarts? Warner Bros. (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN)  is allowing Potter Heads to do just that when "The Making of Harry Potter" tour launches in the spring of 2012.

Located at Warner Bros. studios in Leavesden, England — the production base for all eight films — the three-hour tour features costumes, animatronics, props, effects and sets used in the "Harry Potter" movies, including the Great Hall and Dumbledore's office.

The Great Hall, built in 2000, is 120 feet long by 40 feet wide with a solid stone floor, according to a press release. It includes the tables and benches where Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the Hogwarts gang regularly gathered.

Dumbledore’s office, meanwhile, houses the Sorting Hat, the Sword of Gryffindor and Dumbledore’s desk. Ancient books and several paintings, including two of Professor Dumbledore, line the walls.

“We’re incredibly excited about next year’s opening of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London — The Making of Harry Potter," says Josh Berger, president and managing director of Warner Bros. U.K., Ireland, and Spain. "It will celebrate the exceptional British creativity and craftsmanship that goes into making major movies here in the U.K.”

Tour tickets go on sale later this year at www.wbstudiotour.co.uk.

    I think weve had enough Harry Potter overkill already! I mean its fine if your 12 yrs old and still believe in make believe worlds. But for the rest of us? Enough is enough already.

      I was just saying how much I love Harry Potter dispite being 34 years old. I don't care who thinks it is weird, the story is so original it is easy to get lost in his world!
