Wands in London. Britain celebrates the anniversary of the first Harry Potter film (photo)

London decided to celebrate the twentieth anniversary since the release of the first saga film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. From October 13, Leicester Square will be illuminated with magic wands, writes Secret London.


Nine wands are displayed around the perimeter of the square, each representing characters from the Harry Potter franchise and fantastic animals. The height of the wands is 4.5 meters. They will be lit in the evening to light the way to the monument to the main character of the books and films - Harry Potter on a broomstick. There are also sculptural images of other Potterian characters.

Leicester Square in London was chosen for a reason: the movie theater located in the square has hosted more than one premiere about Britain's most famous boy.


It is also known that the sculptures from the film will travel around the country. By means of Internet-voting the British determined the following places of their stay. In the spring they will be installed in Hull, Stoke, Reading and Birmingham, in each of the cities they will stay for a week.


Note that the world premiere of the film took place at London's Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square on November 4, 2001.


Recall that "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" will be released in theaters April 15 next year.
