The Knight Bus Arrives At Warner Bros. Studio Tour London-The Making Of Harry Potter

The Knight Bus Arrives At Warner Bros. Studio Tour London-The Making Of Harry Potter

In a Press Release earlier today, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London-The Making Of Harry Potter announced that the Knight Bus, featured in Prisoner Of Azkaban, is the latest addition to the tour. The tour of Leavesden opens March 31st, 2012.

Thursday 26th January:  The iconic, triple decker Knight Bus today rolls into Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, which opens 31st March 2012. Taking its place among the many authentic sets, props and costumes from the eight Harry Potter films, the Knight Bus debuted in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ and was one of the most complicated pieces to create in the production.

 

John Richardson, Special Effects Supervisor, said: ”The Knight Bus was not a CGI Creation as many people thought but in fact a real-life working bus. It was constructed by cutting up two iconic Routemaster buses, reworking the structure and bolting it all back together to provide one bus with three decks. One interesting challenge that arose during the shooting of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was that we could not drive the vehicle across London due to the number of low bridges in and around the capital.  This meant that we had to transport the bus in two pieces between locations and put it back together as required for filming.”

Want to visit Leavesden and see where our favorite Slytherin, Tom Felton spent 10 magical years filming 8 iconic films? Book your tickets here!

Multiple Fansites Get Together To Send Tom Felton Around The World!

Multiple Fansites Get Together To Send Tom Felton Around The World!

Well, sort of…… Flat Tom that is.

Flat Tom is here and he wants to go on a journey with you!

This project will be open for all fans who want to participate. As the whole word will be involved, this will be the first Fan Project done by more than just one fan site.

Together with TomFeltonEU and TomFeltonBrasil we want to start a huge and funny interactive “game” for all of you.

Flat Tom is just a picture on some paper with a stick to hold it, but it can be much more together with you and a sight of your home town.

The main idea is to send Tom around the world. Every Fan is welcome to join, but please read the rules before entering, because without rules it won’t work!

Main Rules

- As soon as Tom is with you, you have 5 days to shoot a picture with him and send him to the next person

- To keep overview where Tom is and where to send him next, we need an email of you as soon as you receive him AND when you sent him to the next person

- As soon as we receive your email about having Tom, we will send you the details of the next person on our list

- If Tom needs a repair or such, it’s your duty to take care of this as much as possible. For example: Putting new paper on his bag, taking a new envelope for sending or such.

- As we can’t pay postage for all of you, please keep in mind that you will have to pay the postage for sending Tom to the next fan by yourself

- You will receive an alert as soon as Tom is with the person above you on the list. If you don’t receive Tom within 7 days or he is broken, please email as soon as possible and we will send a new one to you!

- It’s a duty to send Tom to other fans! We always know where he is, and we won’t be amused if someone keeps him and spoils the fun!

Picture Rules

- As this is a special project we really want special pictures. This means NO pictures of you and Tom in your living room or such, but pictures at a nice place. Best is of course a well known sight or if you don’t have something like that close to you, at least a picture in the nature.

- Please add your name (Twitter as well if available) and the place the pic was shot to your email when you send the picture

How to enter the project?

This is easy. As our sites are based in different parts of the world , each Fan site is sending one flat Tom around in his continent. This will also help you to save some postage ;)

So depending on your home town, please send an email including your Name and address to:

Europe: Vanessa@tomfelton.eu (TomFeltonEU)

Asia: Vanessa@tomfelton.eu (TomFeltonEU)

USA/Canada: Bserlori@Gmail.com (Feltbeats)

South/Middle America: Camila@TomFeltonBrasil.com

Australia/New Zealand: Rotae.Lupin@Gmail.com (Feltbeats)

Africa: Rotae.Lupin@Gmail.com (Feltbeats)

Once your picture is done, please send it to the same address (see above)!

Help Change The Lives Of Children In Zimbabwe!

Help Change The Lives Of Children In Zimbabwe!

Feltbeats.com will be holding a Charity Fundraiser in celebration of  Tom Felton’s 10 years playing Slytherin Bad Boy Draco Malfoy. Over the next six months, we will be collecting donations for the newest charity near and dear to Tom’s heart. Inspired by the documentary, ”Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children”  Here’s more info from the filmakers:

Since making the film Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children – we have been able to help the children featured. But they are among many thousands of children in desperate need of an EDUCATION. For £2.50 per month or £30.00 per year you can pay for a child’s school fees for an entire year in Zimbabwe.

Tom has put out the plea for fans of his to help take these children out of the work force and into the classroom. This is where you come in.

After more than a decade of portraying the Slytherin Ice Prince on the big screen, Tom Felton will give his final performance as his alter ego, Draco Malfoy, in July 2011 when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II arrives in theaters around the globe.  As a thank you to Tom, and a proper send-off of Draco, we at Feltbeats.com are conducting a fundraiser for one of Tom’s favorite charities, Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children.

 Each month, we will be collecting donations at http://www.justgiving.com/dracosgift . Just Giving is a non-profit agency that collects donations and submits them directly to the charity every 25 days. On the 5th of each month, Feltbeats.com will draw names from the doners the previous month to win special Feltbeats.com related goodies, culminating with the final draw on Draco Malfoy’s 31st Birthday! In July, Feltbeats.com members will be in London  presenting a celebratory check to the Zimbabwechildren.orgs offices listing the total raised for this life changing charity. When thinking of donating this holiday season, and beyond,  please keep the children of Zimbabwe in your hearts.
