After shooting to the top of the UK’s box office in its first week of release, the latest film in the Harry Potter Franchise - Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore – has seen Pottermania once again dominate the cinema industry’s headlines.
And to celebrate the release of the blockbuster film, results of a new survey have been released by Showcase Cinemas to find out who are the country’s favourite Wizarding World characters of all time.
One of the most loved franchises of all time, the Harry Potter series now boasts a walkthrough exhibition and studio tour in Leavesden, alongside a themed area based on the Harry Potter series built at Universal Studios in Orlando and Osaka.
