On the 8th July 2019, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released in the UK 20 years ago.
The 3rd book in the Harry Potter series won the Whitbread Children’s Book Award, the Bram Stoke Award, and was short-listed for the Hugo award. Then, just 5 years later, the film adaptation was released and became the second highest grossing movie of 2004 with just under $800 million worldwide.
To celebrate 20 years of Azkaban magic, Bloomsbury have partnered with Warner Bros. Studios Tour in London to bring fans something truly special.
The best thing about it, is that they want your help. Yes, they are calling on Harry Potter fans from all over the world. So, keep on reading if you want to get involved.
Bloomsbury are asking Harry Potter fans to post their happiest memory on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ExpectoPatronum20. These images will then be printed onto tiles to create a colossal mosaic of Harry Potter casting his Stag patronus- drawn by Jim Kay.
It’s that simple. Take a photo that encompasses your best memory. It could be the day you pick up one of the books, your first cosplay, or even your first trip to the Studios. Anything that expresses what Harry Potter means to you.
So, start taking your photos. Start sharing them online and who knows, your image might be selected and printed.
The mosaic will be displayed at the Warner Bros. Studios Tour on the big anniversary day.
Remember, share your pictures publicly using the hashtag #ExpectoPatronum20.
