Wands on tour! You may remember that last year, nine huge replicas of iconic Wizarding World wands were put on display in London to support J.K. Rowling’s charity Lumos. Now Warner Bros. UK is asking you where they should go next.
Last November, St Paul’s Cathedral in London was lit up in spectacular fashion with nine magnificent wand replicas put on display to celebrate the release of the second Fantastic Beasts film.
Now, with the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald on DVD and Blu-ray, (coming 18 March) Warner Bros. UK is opening a new poll asking you guys where the wands should visit next across the UK and Ireland.
The winning location (which could be a town or city) will host the wands nearer to the release of the third Fantastic Beasts film.
From the iconic markings of the Elder Wand, to Newt Scamander’s slightly scuffed one, the replicas stand at fifteen feet tall, and even light up at night, so you can guarantee they will make for a wonderful new landmark in your home town.
The ‘Wands Ready’ voting poll opens today, and will eventually be whittled down to eight finalists, to be announced 18 March, the same day as the new Fantastic Beasts DVD and Blu-ray!
So, wherever you are, be it as far south as Dorset or up in the Scottish highlands, (we’re going to guess you won’t be voting from Hogwarts...) make sure you have your say on where the magnificent wands’ new home should be.
Visit www.fantasticbeasts.co.uk/wandsready to make your vote today.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray 18 March.
