Depart for Hogwarts with this Harry Potter Train Station Re-Enactment

The train is about to depart for Hogwarts at platform 9 3/4 in this cool re-enactment video from Improv Everywhere (via Design Taxi). Created and directed by Charlie Todd, the video is part of the “Movies in Real Life” series. It was filmed at New York’s Penn Station and features 11-year-old actor Sebastian Thomas as Harry Potter.

Hogwarts Train Video Description:

For our latest mission, we sent an 11-year-old actor dressed as Harry Potter into New York’s Pennsylvania Station to search for Platform 9 3/4. Harry wandered the station with a caged owl and a luggage cart and asked both strangers and transit employees how to get to the Hogwarts Express, presenting them with his Platform 9 3/4 ticket.

The Hogwarts train is one of the many memorable scenes from the films. It would be awesome if there was a Hogwarts-themed train where Potterheads could travel around doing spells and eating creative sweets concoctions.
