Slytherins, we’ve seen the future, and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London is making 2020 your year with new props, a grand Great Hall feast, and the award of the elusive Hogwarts House Cup.
That’s right, Slytherin has won the house cup:
“For the first time ever, visitors will be welcomed into the Great Hall dressed to celebrate a Slytherin victory of the House Cup, complete with a grand feast and original banners from the film series suspended from the enchanted ceiling.”
Did you know the line, “I didn’t know you could read,” was actually improvised by @TomFelton? To celebrate, reply with your favourite Draco Malfoy quote from the films! #HappyBirthdayDracoMalfoy pic.twitter.com/JuXzlE6w9o

While Godric Gryffindor does somersaults in his grave, alumni and students alike (including Albus Severus Potter) can expect a Celebration of Slytherin next summer beginning Friday, April 3 through Sunday, September 6, 2020.
Beyond some Slytherin-specific spotlights the tour already offers, like the Potions Classroom, Basilisk and Chamber of Secrets Door, we’re definitely hoping for some sets that focus less on the Dark Arts and more on student life — like a Slytherin Common Room set, for example.
In the Potions Classroom set, the archways are inscribed with Latin and English names of potion ingredients and rare minerals. Spot the details at #WBTourLondon! #HarryPotter pic.twitter.com/Jk8TZRCtwO

In the meantime, you’ve got months to brush up on the Wizarding World and even take the official Sorting Hat Experience to see if you can count yourself lucky enough to be included among those of great ambition.
