Animal actors set to return to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London this February!
A few of the animals trained for the movies by Head Animal Trainer Julie Tottman will make an appearance on the sets. The announcement on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London website tells us more about which animals will be present and what visitors can expect from the experience:
Visitors to the Gryffindor common room set will find it occupied by a cat that played stealthy Mrs. Norris, the toad that played Neville Longbottom’s pet Trevor and a number of rats – trained using the same process as those who played Ron Weasley’s pet Scabbers.
The ginger cat that played Hermione Granger’s bandy-legged feline Crookshanks will be seen on Diagon Alley.
A Neapolitan Mastiff, trained like those that played Hagrid’s loyal dog Fang, will be stationed outside the half-giant’s hut.
Visitors will also be able to pose for a picture with a Snowy Owl who played Harry Potter’s letter-delivering owl Hedwig.
Visitors will also be able to watch live training demonstrations and learn how the animals learned to act by seeing the equipment and tricks used by the trainers.
