It’s time to start brushing up on your Parseltongue, “Harry Potter” fans.
That’s because Slytherin — the Hogwarts house most associated with villainy and evil — is finally getting its due with an all-new, in-depth tour. The experience, opening at London’s “Harry Potter” Warner Bros. Studio Tour this April, offers a guided trip through an iconic set from the beloved film series.
According to the LeakyCauldron.org, the studio’s tour, which already travels through several sets used throughout the films, is adding the Slytherin common room to its itinerary.
That means fans can explore the often-forbidden chamber where characters like Draco Malfoy and Lord Voldemort once “lived.” The set is possibly most famous for its appearance in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” during which Harry, Ron and Hermione use the shape-shifting Polyjuice Potion to impersonate Slytherin students.
The new experience is called “A Celebration of Slytherin,” and will run from April through September. In addition to the new set, the multi-month event will also see other parts of the tour — including several parts of the original Hogwarts set — decked out in Slytherin’s green and gold imagery.
There will also be new exhibits dedicated to the rise and fall of Lord Voldemort and the Malfoy family, as shown through original costumes used in the films, according to Insider.
It’s been 23 years since author J.K Rowling released the first “Harry Potter” book, beginning a series that has now spawned 10 movies and a Broadway show. Meanwhile, the books themselves have sold more than 500 million copies worldwide.
