Items lost in the tragic Warner House fire

The Casa Warner exhibition, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of Warner Bros. studios, caught fire last Tuesday, the 9th, in Rio de Janeiro

In the early hours of last Tuesday, the 9th, a tragic fire hit the Casa Warner exhibition, responsible for celebrating the 100th anniversary of Warner Bros. studios, and which was taking place in the parking lot of the Nova América shopping mall, in Del Castilho, Rio de Janeiro.

Organized by 2a1 Cenografia and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment (WBDGTE), the accident left no injuries, but devastated a large collection that included replicas and original items from productions such as “Batman”, “Wonder Woman”, “Harry Potter”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “Anabelle”, “Scooby-Doo”, “Looney Tunes”, and many more.

As reported by O Globo, in a note, the organizers declared that they were “devastated by the loss of original props and replicas from Casa Warner and we hope to recover what we can to bring this experience back to fans in Brazil.”

Also in the statement, those responsible for the event highlighted that the exhibition “met all the requirements set out in the Fire and Panic Safety Code, thus obtaining operating authorization issued by CBMERJ for the period from 06/12/24 to 08/31/24”, in addition to thanking the work of the Rio de Janeiro Fire Department.

“We are grateful to the fire department for their quick response and are working closely with them and local authorities in their investigation,” the statement concluded.

In total, Casa Warner had 1,500 square meters, filled with items and sets relating to some of the main Warner studios franchises over the last 100 years, but which, unfortunately, were completely destroyed.

Check out some items lost in the fire, according to a survey carried out by the Splash portal, from UOL.

Statues

One of the first attractions that the public had access to were the statues of some classic characters from DC films, including heroes like Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Superman.

Tribute to Batman

This year, Batman celebrates his 85th birthday and, to commemorate the date, Batman had a special area at Casa Warner, featuring different statues of the character over the years, a replica of the Batcave control table, as well as photo panels and a reproduction of the hero’s famous motorcycle.

However, one of the items that was completely lost and left fans shaken was the original car used in the 1960 series. In images shared on social media, it is possible to see the vehicle completely charred after the flames were extinguished.

Special scenarios

Throughout the exhibition, visitors passed through a series of special sets and interactive spaces from Warner franchises. Among them were: the sofa from “Friends”, sets from “Looney Tunes”, a special effects area inspired by “The Matrix”, a replica of Platform 9 ¾ and an interactive set for the selection of houses from “Harry Potter”, among others.

Original items

The most devastating thing for fans, however, was the loss of some iconic original items that were used in the filming of some of Warner’s major productions over the years. Here’s a list of some of the lost items:

  • The Firebolt broom used in the “Harry Potter” films;
  • Harry Potter and Dumbledore’s original wands, as well as Rowena Ravenclaw’s tiara and the Resurrection Stone;
  • The original Annabelle doll used in “The Conjuring” films;
  • Neo’s costume from “The Matrix”;
  • The red slipper and Dorothy’s original costume used by Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz”, preserved for 85 years;
  • A helmet and sword from the movie “300”;
  • Freddy Krueger’s costume from “Friday the 13th”;
  • Sauron’s helmet and ring from “The Lord of the Rings”;
  • Wonder Woman’s costume.
