The US studio has employed design company Thinkwell Group to oversee the development of the attraction.

Warner Bros is to develop a “behind the scenes” Harry Potter tour as part of its $159m (£100m) redevelopment of the recently acquired Leavesden Studios.

The US studio has employed design and development firm Thinkwell Group to produce a “one of a kind behind the scenes look at the Harry Potter movie series” at Leavesden Studios, where all eight of the Harry Potter films were shot. It will be open to the general public and include the original Harry Potter film sets.

The development comes following the announcement that Warner Bros was to make Leavesden Studios its permanent UK base.
