Harry Potter at Terminal 5 - 3

 

THE HARRY POTTER™ SHOP has officially opened its doors to passengers at Heathrow Terminal 5.

    

The new 600 sq.ft. store in Terminal 5 has opened its doors today, the same week as the release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

 

THE HARRY POTTER™ SHOP sells over 200 items, many of them exclusively at Heathrow, from across J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. The shop sells newly released products from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as collectibles, gifts, novelties and souvenirs from Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station and the West End hit play ‘Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts One and Two’.

 

The shop will be open 7 days a week from 5:30am-­10:00pm and will be visited by more than 16 million passengers coming through Heathrow Terminal 5 each year to travel around the globe.

 

Speaking at the opening just in time for Christmas 2016, Jonathan Sands of The Harry Potter Shop, said, “We are proud to be opening THE HARRY POTTER SHOP at Heathrow Terminal 5, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and look forward to bringing some of our magic to the UK’s most iconic airport.”

 

Heathrow’s Commercial Director, Jonathan Coen, said; “We are really pleased to welcome the new Harry Potter Shop to Terminal 5. Harry Potter is loved across the globe and what better place to enjoy gift and souvenirs from the Wizarding World before our passengers fly to the other side of the world. We hope our customers enjoy everything the new store has to offer as they take a little magic with them.”

ABOUT FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an all-new adventure returning us to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter features.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Ron Perlman, Carmen Ejogo, Jenn Murray, Faith Wood-Blagrove, and Colin Farrell.

 

The film reunites a number of people from the Harry Potter features, including producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
