Harry Potter: The Exhibition
The "Flying Ford Anglia" as seen in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets has arrived for display at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago – the first of more than 200 costumes, artifacts and props that will arrive at the museum for the world premiere of Harry Potter: The Exhibition .
Ford Anglia Facts:
The Ford Anglia was enchanted by its owner, Arthur Weasley, to give it the ability to fly and become invisible. At the start of their second year, Harry Potter™ and Ron Weasley™ miss the Hogwarts™ Express and use the car to fly to Hogwarts™. Just as they arrive at the school, the Anglia begins to break down and crashes into the flailing branches of the Whomping Willow™. Later that year, the magical car heroically saves Harry and Ron from giant spiders in the Forbidden Forest.
You can view a picture of the car here on their site. More images to be released later today.
