EVER wonder why the stars of The Harry Potter films are so small, all sons and daughters of stars from Michael Bentine’s Potty Time? It’s because they have to fit into Hogwarts. which is not larger than a small camper van. Jose Granell, model supervisor, has unviled a model of Hogwarts castle at the Warner Bros Studio Tour, Watford, London. The Hogwarts castle model was built for the first film ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, it was created for aerial photography and was digitally scanned for CGI scenes. It took 86 artists and crew members to construct, it measures over 50 feet in diameter and has over 2,500 fibre optic lights.

If you look closely you can see Daniel Radcliffe smoking with Emma Watson by the big tree as Rupert Grint keeps watch…
