Harry Potter-themed park to open in Japan

We have good news for all the Potter heads as Warner Bros. Studio has just announced their plans to develop a new Harry Potter-themed park in Tokyo, Japan. As per an official press release by the studio, the theme park will open to tourists in the first half of 2023.

Some big names like Warner Bros. Studio Tours, Seibu Railway Co, Warner Bros. Japan, Itochu Corporation, and Fuyo General Lease Co have come together to develop the Studio Tour Tokyo. This is going to be a lifetime experience for Potter fans as it will take them on a fascinating behind the scenes look of the Wizarding World Series. 

The release reads, “Visitors can explore the iconic movie sets that were actually designed and built by the creators of the Harry Potter series. Showcasing original costumes and props, the indoor attraction invites visitors to experience scenes from the films firsthand and discover how the world’s favourite book series was brought to life on the screen.”

There will be original costumes, props and indoor attractions. The fans will also get to see how the book was converted into a movie set. The park will be spread across 3000 sqm and there will be exhibition space also. 

A ‘sound stage’ and ‘backlot’ zones will also be a part of the park and you will need nearly half a day to fully cover it. The park will also feature mystical characters from the Harry Potter movie series to make it more interesting.

The Harry Potter theme park will be constructed at the famous Toshimaen Amusement Park that was shut down in August 2020. Though, there have been little details about the park, we are already  excited.
