BTS Harry Potter Image Reveal One Of Prisoner Of Azkaban’s Wildest Practical Effects



The filmmakers of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” were able to achieve an impressive practical effect, as revealed in a behind-the-scenes image. The Harry Potter movie franchise was a massive success, grossing almost $7.7 billion globally and creating a new wave of teen fantasy franchises. The franchise also spawned a spinoff series, “Fantastic Beasts,” and an upcoming HBO reboot TV series.

The official Harry Potter Twitter account shared an image that showed how Aunt Marge’s inflating body was created. The crew used practical effects to make the body possible, using no less than 38 tweed suits in various shapes and sizes to achieve the desired effect.

While most movies use CGI to achieve special effects, the Harry Potter franchise mixed in practical effects to create the finished product. For instance, to create Hagrid’s character, who is described as “almost twice as tall as a normal man and at least five times as wide” in the books, scaled-down props were used, and a body-double for Robbie Coltrane was employed to achieve the desired effect.

Although Fluffy, the three-headed dog, and the flying keys were entirely CGI, the other obstacles that Harry, Ron, and Hermione encountered in the final sequence of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” were entirely practical special effects. The special effects team designed and sculpted the life-sized chess set and used compressed air to make Ron’s knight explode. The Devil’s Snare vines were controlled by puppeteers.

The most impressive practical effects in the Harry Potter franchise were those that created magical creatures. Although most of the Basilisk’s movements were CGI, the crew created a 25-foot model with a moving jaw for closeups of its battle with Harry. Fawkes, Dumbledore’s loyal phoenix, was designed and animated so convincingly that Richard Harris, who played Dumbledore, believed it was a real bird. However, perhaps the SFX team’s most impressive accomplishment was the 18-foot giant spider in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” Aragog, which was created with no digital assistance whatsoever.

In conclusion, the Harry Potter franchise’s practical effects were an integral part of the films’ success. The mix of practical and CGI effects created a unique, magical world that captured the audience’s imagination. The franchise has undoubtedly left a lasting mark on the film industry and pop culture.

A behind-the-scenes image reveals how the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban filmmakers were able to pull off an impressive practical effect.
