This is the swamp that the Weasley Twins create in the fifth floor corridor.
About this creation
For those who don't know the Harry Potter books, or have only seen the movie, it's sort of a scene from the fifth book. That's HP and the Order of the Phoenix. Before the Weasley Twins bolt from school, leaving behind a sampling of their fabulous fireworks, they created a swamp in the 5th floor corridor. Umbridge could not remove it. The other teachers said they could not either. After Umbridge left, stinking of Centaur, Professor Flitwick vanished it, in about a second. He left a small portion of it roped off. For his own pleasure. It's not a scene in the movie, and it happens off stage in the book. Oh well. I always enjoyed the idea of the swamp just like I always enjoy the Weasley Twins.
That's Harry and Ron wading to class.
Looking down on Harry and Ron. There's a frog somewhere in there. There's another down by the ladies.
I had to make a Filch out of a Naboo officer. I cut off part of a cape to make him a long coat. There's a frog in there too. Hard to see.
I always imagined the swamp as in the viscosity of the liquid, not as in full of plants, but you may be right. Wasn't Filch punting students across, rather than using boats, or having the students wade through? Anyway, good.
Great job! I've always loved Harry Potter, and the Weasley twins are my favorite characters as well. I agree, I think the movies are getting worse... For shame. Anyway, keep up the good work.

I'm not a Harry Potter fan/follower, so I'll have to take your word on whats going on. However, the construction and imagery is quite remarkable. This really is an amazing scene. For some reason, this reminds me a little bit of 'Land of the Lost' (which I am now thinking would be a great project).
Fred and George's departure from Hogwarts is my favorite scene in that book, you just need some Lego fireworks in there! The movies get worse and worse as they stray further and further from the books. Not to mention the "child" actors will all be like 30 years old by the time the last one is filmed.
