Warner Bros. Discovery has introduced an enhanced streaming service, Max that will launch in the U.S. on May 23.
Who could have imagined that crying baby plants, flying broomsticks and talking portraits would be tucked right in the middle of Downtown Atlanta?
Harry Potter: The Exhibition is now in Atlanta, after opening locations in Philadelphia and Vienna, Austria last year. Soon to follow will be a Paris location as well as other cities in the near future.
The exhibition brings the world of Harry Potter to life and includes locations like Hogwarts, Harry’s bedroom and Hagrid’s living home.
While this may sound similar to the theme park at Universal Studios Orlando, or even the newly built flagship store in New York City, Harry Potter: The Exhibition is in a class of its own. From start to finish, it features everything from the entire series.
No detail is spared. In fact, every detail is carefully placed and beautifully executed. Down to the design of the Divination classroom to the real props and outfits used in each film, this exhibition is like a whimsical fever dream. Guests can expect to see behind the scenes preparations of the work that went in to building the world of Harry Potter that we know so well today.
Everything from how the characters’ wands were designed to the real story behind some of our favorite moments from the films can be seen throughout the tour.
Upon entering, guests can choose a house and a Patronus. From there, the experience is specially curated around the guest’s choice and allows them to enjoy an interactive experience. If you’re not camera shy, there are plenty of cool photo-ops to take advantage of.
The space is massive and takes over an hour to cover. Don’t worry about a sensory overload, though. There’s a lot to see but there’s no rush! We promise you’ll enjoy every minute of it.
There’s something for every kind of wizard at this exhibition. Whether you’re a super fan of the beloved series or you’re just looking for a fun outing, this is definitely the place to be.
Visit the café to get your hands on a Butter Beer, the popular soft drink introduced in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, or snack on some tasty treats inspired by the films.
If you’re in the mood to spend some money, stop by the gift shop to see hundreds (seriously) of Harry Potter merchandise. From Gryffindor T-Shirts and the Marauders Map of Hogwarts to Voldemort figurines, there’s plenty to choose from.
Tickets to the Atlanta location are on-sale now and start at $25 for kids and $29 for adults.
Watch our recap of the exhibition here.
Of course, I am in no way, shape or form trying to disparage Lon Chaney’s work as the wolf man, but a lot of the old-timey have not seemed to age well over time. They obviously didn’t have computers to render the finalized werewolf believable instead of laughable, which is where the Alfonso Cauron 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban comes in.
This third film in the Wizarding World franchise sees Harry Potter being haunted by a newly-escaped prisoner named Sirius Black, who has been said to have aided Lord Voldemort in the killing of Potter’s parents.
The main plot of the film isn’t what I’m here to talk about, though. I’m here to talk about one scene, in particular, where the Defense against the Dark Arts teacher Remus Lupin turns into a werewolf after forgetting to take his potion to prevent the incident from occurring.
In the course of the scene, Lupin is ready to attack and kill Harry, his friends and Professor Snape, until Black transforms into his dog disguise and takes on the hairy brute.
This is all to say that this is one of the most intense sequences in the Harry Potter series. It takes the series into a darker turn for fans and audiences. It is also a milestone in the horror genre and, more specifically, a werewolf movie.
I have never seen a werewolf film honor its horror roots with such amazing CGI and a sympathetic character. This third entry in the series is something that many werewolf films don’t truly understand. It harbors a sympathetic victim of this werewolf curse. Other films before and after it have given generic characters to their horror pictures. They fail to connect with audiences and the characters come across as flaccid and lifeless that fail to resonate anything with audiences.
Harry Potter’s third movie combines the dark macabre with a touch of comedy that is sorely missed from previous wolf movies. I am so happy that I grew up with this gem.
Wizards and witches from all over the globe have been flying into the Big Apple to enjoy all the magical goodies found at the Harry Potter flagship store.
