A host of new experiences have been added to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood
At the heart of the new additions is the “Storytelling Showcase"
The new additions include recreated sets and props from the Harry Potter and DC universes
The attraction has been closed for 15 months due to pandemic restrictions
A host of new experiences have been added to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood in Burbank, Los Angeles, ahead of its grand reopening on 26 June.

The attraction has been closed for more than a year, due to pandemic restrictions.

At the heart of the new additions is the “Storytelling Showcase", which will allow guests to discover the world of Warner Bros. by examining the breadth of the studio’s film, TV and animation titles.

It also charts technological innovations, from its cinema chain origins in 1923 through its nearly 100-year journey to become one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world.

The visitor journey will also offer the opportunity to explore recreated sets from the Harry Potter franchise.

Fans can dabble in the art of potion-making, snap a photo inside Harry’s cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive and take part in the "Sorting Ceremony" – featuring the Sorting Hat – allowing visitors to discover their official Hogwarts house before arriving.

Elsewhere, fans of the DC universe can enter Batman’s secret lair and explore the all-new Batcave, where they can get up close to the authentic Batmobile from Tim Burton’s original Batman.

There is also an interactive photo opportunity with Wonder Woman's "Lasso of Hestia" from the hit sequel Wonder Woman 1984.

Danny Kahn, vice president and general manager, Warner Bros. Studios, said: “Entertainment is about connecting with fans and we are thrilled to welcome guests back to the tour after a more than 15-month hiatus

"Our new experiences will take guests on a journey through our history, how we bring stories to life and celebrate the DC Universe and Wizarding World.”

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood is a guided and walkthrough studio tour offering visitors a "behind the scenes" experience.

The studio was among the first to begin offering public tours of its facilities back in 1972.
