UPDATED: #FollowTheSpiders… to a Warner Bros. Studio Tour London Expansion!
For the past week, the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and Pottermore have been teasing on social media – and elsewhere – that we should all do exactly what Ron Weasley wishes he had never done and #FollowTheSpiders. Social media accounts have been overrun by small spiders, who are, of course, followed by the hauntingly gigantic form of Aragog.
Today, at the Celebration of Harry Potter in Orlando, the tour revealed that soon, visitors will able to actually follow into the spiders’ domain: The tour is expanding to include the Forbidden Forest!
The expansion will open on March 31, 2017, the tour’s fifth anniversary.

The new expansion will feature one of Hagrid’s costumes, a new full-size Buckbeak model, and of course, Aragog emerging from his hidden lair. Visitors will wind between the roots of 19 trees, each over 12 feet in diameter, as they make their way through the Forest. Visitors will also be able to control the weather in this part of the exhibit, the way the filmmakers did!
We will continue to update you with more information as it becomes available from the Celebration of Harry Potter in Orlando. Make sure to follow our MuggleNet Live twitter for up -o-the-minute updates as well!
