Harry Potter - Fawkes the Phoenix


Sr Member
I've been away from the forum for a while!

I am interested in learning more about the Fawkes the Pheonix prop. Does anyone have any info they can share?

If you go on the tour in England it tells you a lot of information and the creator of it did an amazing job. I know there's been interviews and articles of people actually thinking it was a real bird at first. The reference below pretty much sums it up.

"The Creature Shop team built three different animatronic models of Fawkes; beautiful adult phoenix, an older moulting version and a fledgling newborn that rose from its ashes. Fawkes' plumage was made of real feathers, each individually hand-painted in his fiery phoenix colours. For Fawkes' flying sequences, the Visual Effects team created a digitally animated bird that could perform the soaring, swooping, diving actions that a model could not".

Someone has attempted their own version -
