Harry is seen flying a Nimbus 2000 broom over the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch where he won several games for Gryffindor. He’s been sculpted in bronze. Television presenter, Alex Zane, while presenting the unveiling ceremony, said:
"Harry Potter has brought so much joy to fans around the world and many like me have grown up with him, so it's fantastic that he is taking his rightful place here in Leicester Square where I was lucky enough to host the series' final premiere. I can't think of a more deserving addition to Scenes In The Square."
Heart of London Business Alliance chief executive Ros Morgan said that Harry Potter is extremely important to literature, theatre, and film.
"We know there are fans of Harry Potter of all ages all around the world and we look forward to welcoming them to the West End and Leicester Square, whenever that will be."
Harry Potter now joins other iconic movie characters’ statues from the past century such as Bugs Bunny, Mary Poppins, Paddington, and Mr. Bean, as part of “Scenes in the Square,” an interactive film trail in Leicester Square.
