Nearly 20 years ago, an ordinary boy Harry Potter, entered our lives and changed it forever, to quote Harry himself, “it was like magic.” Without the help of a wand, JK Rowling just enchanted an entire generation. Suddenly regular places like platforms in The Kings Cross Station, Surrey, became nostalgic spots where fans often waited expecting to see the platform to 9 and 3/4 open up. Normal days like May 2, was marked as the day the great battle at Hogwarts took place and July 31, was celebrated as the day, when Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom were born. Very few people probably know, that author JK Rowling shares her birthday with the protagonist of her book.
In 2016, JK Rowling and David Yates took us back to another magical trip with Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Although the film told an entirely different tale, with completely different cast members, we liked it as much as we liked the Harry Potter franchise which had ended in 2011. The first part of Fantastic Beasts was set in New York, US. The film had traces of old characters like Gellert Grindelwald, Albus Dumbledore, and Newt Scamander, who were already introduced to us in the books. Fantastic Beasts is set at a time when Harry Potter wasn’t born.
While the films which were directed by Christopher Columbus, David Yates, Alfonso Cuarón, enchanted us, here are some behind the scene moments from the sets of Harry Potter which will act as major nostalgia to Potterheads.
Check out these behind the scene moments from the sets of the film.
