Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.
It’s the fifteenth anniversary of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone movie, and this week, Warner Brothers invited a ton of our faves to the opening of Privet Drive at the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London.
While we muggles were stuck at home watching the film on repeat all night, they got to visit the cupboard under the stairs, eat the magical treat that is butterbeer ice cream, and marvel at the wonders of Platform 9¾ – what a lucky bunch! We also heard rumours that Aunt Petunia herself was at the opening! We best hope everyone was on their best behaviour. We all know how much the Dursleys dislike this magic business…
You better go grab some tissues and a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans because this article is sure to bring the feels.
Same, Zoe. Same.
I'm so sad to miss the Alice premiere and the Harry Potter opening tonight!

We’re totally with Zoe London. We weren’t able to attend the opening either, as it appears the owl in charge of delivering our invitation got lost on its way to our HQ.
It’s okay, Warner Brothers. We’re not mad. This army of Death Eaters behind us are only here to discuss TenEighty’s plans for the next few months… *shifty eyes*
It’s real. It’s really real!

Number four, Privet Drive is where we were first introduced to our favourite boy wizard so really, is there a house as important as it?
No, we didn’t think so.
No, we’re totally not crying…
Leave it to Daniel J. Layton to bring the feels. Can someone grab us a tissue?
WHAT IS THIS MAGIC?
Went to the Harry Potter #PrivetDrive opening

Jack Howard wasn’t kidding: there are literally letters everywhere! How are they floating in the air? Is the wizarding world of Harry Potter actually real? Just what are you hiding from us, J.K. Rowling?
Magical flying automobiles!

Umm, we love Chloe Dungate, but perhaps we should leave driving the magical flying motorbike to Hagrid…
Those cunning folks use any means to achieve their ends.
I traded a Ravenclaw card for a Slytherin one on the Harry Potter bus – I was on my own & shameless at this point :) pic.twitter.com/VXHE3iTJWv

Who would have thought that Gary C is a Slytherin!
Gary, you might be a proud Slytherin, but there are a fair amount of us at TenEighty HQ who are loyal Ravenclaws, and we feel we’re the far superior house.
Disagree? Then we challenge you to a wizarding duel!
Everyone aboard the Hogwarts Express!
Hazel Hayes, you silly muggle, you know only wizards can cross Platform 9¾ and board the Hogwarts Express. Unless there’s something you’re not telling us….

A night at the Harry Potter Studio isn’t complete without meeting one of your internet BFFs! How have Cherry Wallis and Melanie Murphy never met before that night and, more importantly, when can we expect a collab from the duo? It would surely be magical (see what we did there?).
Really enjoyed the Harry Potter Studio tour. It was a genuine pleasure. Now make Cursed Child into a movie (I know you will) #WBStudioTour

I feel so grateful to have been invited to the Harry Potter Studio Tour tonight! It was so magical, I bawled ✨ pic.twitter.com/wWQqSr6SW4

Yes, we get it. You all had a magical time.
Harry Potter not your thing?
Firstly, how dare you?! Second, do not fear! We’ve totally got you covered. However, we really do feel you should give the boy wizard a second chance. He’s truly a national treasure:
