Batman’s secret cave, Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs and the apartment from Friends are major centrepieces of the huge Warner Bros studio lot expansion.

Warner Bros Studio Tour Hollywood recently reopened more than a year after it was shuttered because of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, attendees will have a chance to explore the studio’s nearly 100 years of television and filmmaking history, highlighting the DC Universe and Harry Potter.

A first-hand look took place a couple of days before the tour opened in late June at the Southern California studio, which now welcomes families with children aged 5 and older.

Warner Bros officials said the expansion – that includes a new building – took five years to develop in Burbank. Officials say the studio tour will follow all city, state and federal Covid-19 safety protocols.

“One of the most incredible things about Warner Brothers is the incredible history of epic films that are legendary,” said Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, who helped reopen the tour.

Some of the tour’s key features:

Storytelling showcase

Selfie opportunities will be aplenty at the replicated, WB water tower as attendees are able to walk along an aerial view of the sprawling studio lot. The walls are lined with mementoes of the studio’s film, TV animation titles, dating back to 1923. Some of the highlights in this room include photos from classic films such as Casablanca and Little Caesar.

There is a dedicated wall area of the Oscar-winning film Million Dollar Baby and the boxing gloves worn by Hilary Swank. JR Ewing’s boots and hat from the television series Dallas are also on display. Several miniature soundstages with the words, “Please do not sit” are throughout the exhibit.

DC Universe

Step into the behind-the-scenes universe of DC superheroes and villains. One of the compelling aspects is the secret Batcave, where guests will find the authentic Batmobile from Tim Burton’s original Batman, the Tumbler from The Dark Knight and the Batwing from Batman vs Superman.

Costumes worn by Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the Flash are on display. Other standouts include Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker costumes from Suicide Squad. Along with Christopher Reeve’s Superman costume, the exhibit has Michael Keaton’s suit from the 1989 film Batman and Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman costume from the classic 1970s television show.

In an interactive experience, visitors can touch the glowing Lasso of Hestia from Wonder Woman 1984.

Director of the recent Wonder Woman films, Patty Jenkins, said she enjoyed seeing the costumes worn from her movies along with the rest of the DC characters featured in the exhibit.

“For there to be a museum to celebrate, that seems like something that is so important,” she said. “Then to have things for my own films in there as well, it’s an incredible honour and a very surreal crossing of the line of those two things.”

‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Fantastic Beasts’ films

Create a photo opportunity inside Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive and understand the art of making potions on the re-created sets of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.

Guests can sit underneath the Sorting Hat, which determines one’s Hogwarts house. And class is in session to learn about the unique creatures at Newt Scamander’s Shed of Magical Creatures.

“You get to experience the action, the magic and fun, and the props and costumes and the re-created sets,” said Bonnie Wright, who starred as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film series.

‘Friends’ boutique

Stage 48: Script to Screen is home to the Friends boutique that will be accompanied by the expanded Central Perk Cafe. The area features re-created sets inspired by the show including Joey and Chandler’s apartment, Monica’s apartment and Central Perk. Some costumes worn by the cast and other props from the show are from the 25th anniversary in 2019. Monica’s famous door frame and a Friends reunion-inspired spirit jersey, coffee mugs along with souvenirs and collectibles are included.

Central Perk offers a New York deli-inspired menu that includes a special blend of Central Perk coffee, pizza wedges, corned beef melts and cold sandwiches.

“I don’t think people are going to want to leave,” said Maggie Wheeler, who played the recurring role of Janice on Friends. The hit TV series starred Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.

“It feels like the show,” Wheeler continued. “It feels like memory lane. I think people are going to be really, really excited to walk through and spend time here.”

Celebrate awards season

The tour concludes with an exhibit spotlighting costumes and props, including the jersey worn by the late Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson in the film 42 and the miniature blimp from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The trombone that Robert Preston played in The Music Man is also on display.

Guests will have an opportunity to hold an authentic Oscar trophy … be sure to grasp with both hands. It’s heavy.

Three trading apps to try

Sharad Nair recommends three investment apps for UAE residents:

  • For beginners or people who want to start investing with limited capital, Mr Nair suggests eToro. “The low fees and low minimum balance requirements make the platform more accessible,” he says. “The user interface is straightforward to understand and operate, while its social element may help ease beginners into the idea of investing money by looking to a virtual community.”
  • If you’re an experienced investor, and have $10,000 or more to invest, consider Saxo Bank. “Saxo Bank offers a more comprehensive trading platform with advanced features and insight for more experienced users. It offers a more personalised approach to opening and operating an account on their platform,” he says.
  • Finally, StashAway could work for those who want a hands-off approach to their investing. “It removes one of the biggest challenges for novice traders: picking the securities in their portfolio,” Mr Nair says. “A goal-based approach or view towards investing can help motivate residents who may usually shy away from investment platforms.”
