Another part of the feature is where fans can have an interactive learning experience with Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, and learn wand combat moves, before taking part in “an exciting live duel with Death Eaters in the Studio Tour’s backlot.” They can also see how the massive Battle of Hogwarts scene was created as the Death Eaters stormed the Hogwarts Bridge.

Even the original Death Eater costumes will be on display. Voldemort’s followers were each given unique hand-painted masks reflecting their personality, as well as wonderful embroidered robes. Fans can get an up-close look at their intricate details at the new feature at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

Visitors can also learn behind-the-scenes secrets about how all kinds of slime and goo were created onscreen with “vats of slimy Troll snot, buckets of dribbling drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and pools of silvery unicorn blood” that will be on show. They can also walk down a specially darkened Diagon Alley.
