US marketing company Becker Group has joined forces with Warner Bros Consumer Products for Harry Potter: The Exhibition.
Premiering in spring 2009, the 10,000 square foot exhibition will take in some ten cities across the world over a five-year period. It will include elaborate displays of authentic costumes, props and artefacts from environments featured in the film series, including those from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry such as the Gryffindor common room and Hagrid’s hut.
During its run, the exhibition will also be updated to include artefacts from the final instalments of the film series. It will be displayed in major cultural and entertainment venues, museums and institutions.
Tour information, updates and ticket availability will be posted at www.harrypotterexhibition.com as details become available.
“Creating this magical tour around such a legendary property is a true milestone for Becker Group, both as a company and source of creative entertainment-based attractions,” said Glenn Tilley, president and CEO of Becker Group.
Brad Globe, president of WBCP, added: “Fans around the world will finally be able to see the incredible craftsmanship and detail that went into creating their favourite props and costumes.”
