‘Secrets’ revealed at launch

Potter, pals celebrate homevid launch

LONDON — Warner Home Video threw an elaborate bash Tuesday for the international homevid launch of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” at Leavesden Studios, where third pic in the series is being filmed.

Among those on hand for the celebration were Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, and “Chamber” helmer Chris Columbus. Radcliffe and co-stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson re-enacted the pic’s wild flying-car ride at the bash.

Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) said his favorite extra on the vid is the tour of the Forbidden Forest at night, where users get three tries to make it out; if they can’t, spiders overrun the car.

The movie’s stars also speculated about the fate of their characters in the fifth book, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” due in stores June 21.

“Somebody told me I was going to die,” said Tom Felton, who plays Potter nemesis Draco Malfoy. “If I do, I hope it’s a good one. … I want it to be with a dragon or fire.” He confessed, because of his character, “Kids all over the world have gone against me.”

A full complement of Warner execs, including Mark Horak, attended the soiree.
