James and Oliver Phelps launch ‘Harry Potter’ exhibition in Portugal James and Oliver Phelps launch ‘Harry Potter’ exhibition in Portugal

The Phelps twins and MinaLima open ‘Harry Potter: The Exhibition’ in Lisbon

Actors James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films) and graphic design duo MinaLima (Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima) were on hand over the weekend to officially launch Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Lisbon.

For a decade, twins James and Oliver Phelps played Fred and George Weasley.

Since 2009, Harry Potter: The Exhibition has been touring the globe bringing Wizarding World props, costumes and artefacts in front of Muggle eyes. The Weasley twin actors have travelled the globe promoting the travelling exhibition and when I spoke with them at the Sydney launch in 2011 we learned that 23 shipping containers were required to carry an enormity of magical props to locations across the world.

Portuguese fans can catch Harry Potter: The Exhibition at Lisbon’s Pavilion of Portugal through until April 8. Tickets are available over at the exhibition website. (If you’re walking through the Great Hall set, make sure to look out for authentic James and Oliver Phelps graffiti carvings on the Gryffindor table.)

Graphic design magicians Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima (MinaLima), the designers responsible for all of the glittering graphics in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, have released an enchanting collection of Wizarding World themed Christmas wrapping paper.

Five of the seven designs (above) — the Marauder’s Map, Black family tree, Quidditch, Hogwarts Library books and Daily Prophet newspapers — were unveiled in a recent wallpaper collection. Two new designs, Santa’s Sleigh and Christmas Elf, were first seen onscreen in Order of the Phoenix (2007) when Arthur Weasley and family exchange Christmas gifts at Grimmauld Place following Mr. Weasley’s snake attack.

Each design includes two sheets of single-sided folded gift wrap measuring 50 x 70cm and costs £5.95. All of the amazing designs can be pre-ordered over at MinaLima’s website or at their House of MinaLima London gallery at 26 Greek Street from Monday 4 November.

Harry Potter graphic design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima (MinaLima) today announced the fourth print in their limited edition ‘Potter’ magical moments graphic series. Titled ‘Better be…Gryffindor!’, the new print celebrates Harry’s Hogwarts Sorting Hat experience.

MinaLima are the talented team behind all aspects of graphic design in the Wizarding World (that’s both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts). Earlier this year I had the pleasure of profiling the artists for a behind-the-scenes look at their Harry Potter craft.
