FANTASTIC BEASTS SCREENINGS
SATURDAY 17th, SUNDAY 18th & MONDAY 19th NOVEMBER
Watch the highly anticipated adventures of Magizoologist Newt Scamander and Hogwarts Professor Albus Dumbledore in a truly magical location as we launch special screenings of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, introduced by Head Prop Maker Pierre Bohanna.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided Wizarding World.
Filmed at the production home of the Harry Potter film series, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in the Wizarding World™.
Each evening from Saturday 17th November – Monday 19th November, visitors to these special screenings will begin by exploring the authentic Harry Potter sets, props and costumes that are showcased at the Studio Tour. Highlights include the Gryffindor common room, Dumbledore's office, the Weasley kitchen at The Burrow and the iconic Platform 9 ¾ that houses the original Hogwarts Express locomotive. After experiencing green-screen technology flying a broomstick over London just like the Harry Potter cast, visitors will receive complimentary hot food, drinks and Butterbeer in the Backlot Cafe.
Visitors will also be among the first to see many of costumes and props that will be featured in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that will be on display at the Studio Tour, including those belonging to Newt Scamander, Gellert Grindelwald and Albus Dumbledore.
See these costumes on display in the Studio Tour lobby.
On completing the Tour, visitors will be able to grab a drink and snack before taking their seats to enjoy the screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The film will be introduced by special guest Pierre Bohanna. Bohanna was Head Prop Maker on all eight Harry Potter films and recently continued his work as Head Prop Maker on both Fantastic Beasts films.
