Posted by Megs

Butterbeer was originally only available for fans to purchase at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida in 2010. Next, in 2012, it ventured to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and then Universal Hollywood in 2016. Now, there is a new form for fans to enjoy – Bottled Butterbeer!

For the very first time, fans of Butterbeer can experience the Wizarding World drink in a brand-new way – at home! A much-requested fan favourite over the years, it comes in beautifully crafted souvenir glass bottles with each one featuring an exclusive collectable label designed by MinaLima.

The Bottled Butterbeer will be sold at WB Studio Tour London, Platform 9 3/4 shops and their online counterparts. Unfortunately they will only ship to the UK for now. It was also revealed that there will be different labels to collect as time goes on. We have asked if the new mug will also be available for purchase but have not heard back yet.

At 7:30BST tonight (September 10th,) Warwick Davis will be taking over the Studio Tour Instagram to answer questions about the Bottled Butterbeer.

The studio tour started the fun yesterday with a mystery video where some Potter personalities received boxes in the mail.

The video reveal continued today with them opening their boxes to reveal the beautifully designed Butterbeer bottles:

LEGO Announces Interactive Harry Potter Diagon Alley Set
Posted by Megs

We have some exciting news on this eve of Back to Hogwarts day! LEGO announced a brand new set, created with help from James & Oliver Phelps, releasing tomorrow! The beautiful Diagon Alley LEGO set has an interactive element to it with the help of a mobile site and buildable QR codes.

The set is a little over a yard wide when lined up and comes with 14 minifigures of characters found in Diagon Alley throughout the series! There are interactive elements such as a hidden lever to trigger movement of the arm/hat of the statue in Weasley’s shop.

Marcos Bessa, LEGO Harry Potter Design Lead commented: “I love how faithful the final design is to the architectural details in the film. You can barely see some of these buildings zooming past your screen, but we tracked down different photographs from the sets – some of them from nearly 20 years ago – to make sure everything is spot on. Diagon Alley is the biggest set I’ve designed to-date and I am really proud of how it has come together.”

This set is for ages 16+, contains 5,544 pieces and retails for $399.99. It will be available for purchase tomorrow, September 1st in LEGO stores and their official website!
