Harry Potter: The Exhibition heading Down Under!
After sharing the enchanted world of Harry Potter with fans in New York City, Harry Potter: The Exhibition will pack up its wizardly bags and head to Australia for the next leg on the tour this November.
Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) recently gave excited fans in Sydney a sneak peek of what to expect. Hundreds of props, costumes, creatures and other artifacts from the Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, will be on display in an immersive experience for fans.
At the Sydney event, Matthew Lewis had the pleasure of unveiling some of the iconic items including the Bloody Baron’s costume and the Flying Ford Anglia, plus a never-before-seen Death Eater costume. And the actor even chatted about some of his favorite features in the exhibit:
Matthew Lewis was also excited about “stuff that you don’t appreciate in the film — things, little details that a lot of effort has gone into, like the programs from the Quidditch World Cup, which you get to see for a second in the film.”
The director of the Powerhouse Museum, Dr. Dawn Casey, said, “We are thrilled to be bringing Harry Potter’s enchanted world to Sydney. We invite all Harry Potter fans and anyone with an interest in the superb creativity and skill which goes into making these stories come alive, to come and experience this truly magical exhibition.”
Harry Potter: The Exhibition will open its doors Down Under at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, starting November 19, 2011 through March 18, 2012. Advance tickets are available now at the Powerhouse Museum site.
