Becker Group, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will bring worldwide audiences "Harry Potter: The Exhibition," a state-of-the-art exhibition highlighting artifacts from the Warner Bros. films based on J.K. Rowling's book series. The 10,000 square foot experience will premiere in spring 2009 in a major market, and will appear in 10 or more cities around the world throughout a five-year span.
"Harry Potter: The Exhibition" will include elaborate displays of authentic costumes, props and artifacts from popular environments featured in the films such as those from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including the Gryffindor common room and Hagrid's hut. During its run, the exhibit will also be updated to include artifacts from the final installments of the HARRY POTTER film series. The exhibition will be displayed in major cultural and entertainment venues, museums and institutions, and will be supported by a multimedia promotional effort and advance ticket sales worldwide. Tour information, updates and ticket availability will be posted at www.harrypotterexhibition.com as details become available, or for more information, call 866-231-8328.
With more than $4.5 billion in worldwide box office gross sales to date, HARRY POTTER is the most successful film franchise in the world. The next installment of the Warner Bros. blockbuster film series, HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, is scheduled to open in theaters on November 21, 2008.
"Harry Potter: The Exhibition" is the fourth collaboration between Warner Bros. and Becker Group.
