Iconic Knight Bus rolls into ‘Warner Brothers Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter’
Warner Brothers has just released to us that the iconic, triple decker Knight Bus is rolling into the Warner Brothers Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter today.
The Studio Tour, which opens on March 31st, 2012 is the home of the authentic sets, props and costumes from the eight Harry Potter Films just outside London at Leavesden Studios. The Knight Bus debuted in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and was one of the most complicated pieces to create in 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.”
