“The show has changed my life in so many different ways,” Wheeler said. “My life has been much richer for my experience on ‘Friends.’”
There is a massive “Friends” boutique with exclusive merchandise including kitchen and dining ware and a variety of other home goods, souvenirs, gifts and memorabilia.
As you leave the “Friends” gang behind, you’ll enter the Action and Magic Made Here section of the tour. Guests are able to do things like pose with Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth, Aquaman’s trident or Clark Kent’s desk at The Daily Planet. There’s a full Batcave with several vehicles from various Caped Crusader films, an interactive video table that gives information on all the DC Universe superheroes and an array of costumes from “Suicide Squad,” “Batman vs. Superman,” “Shazam!” and more.
“Wonder Woman” and “Wonder Woman 1984” director Patty Jenkins, who was also on the tour, said she was impressed by the amount of “Wonder Woman” memorabilia within the space that came directly from the sets of her blockbuster films, particularly the massive pair of metal wings that were used in “Wonder Woman 1984.” Jenkins noted that the wings could have easily been created using computer-generated imagery, but the mood and moment called for something more tangible.
“Each of those objects means something so different to me,” she said. “So many of those objects are such beautiful things that the people I worked with ended up creating, so they all bring back great memories.”
Jenkins, who has worked on the Warner Brothers lot plenty, said she still gets goosebumps when she thinks about the history of the place.
“Warner Brothers has always been sitting upon such a treasure trove of legendary history,” she said. “When I get to walk around the lot and realize, ‘Oh, I’m shooting at the stage where ‘Casablanca’ was shot’ or we’re shooting where ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ was shot. So many movies that we all worship … people made it happened here. I think it’s incredible that people get to come in and look at those photographs, props and look at, like Warner’s address book, because what our entire city is based on is this film industry and what a major anchor Warner Brothers has been to building that industry. So, of course, there should be a great museum to celebrate all of that.”
“Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts” fans can also let their imaginations run wild as they concoct potions, learn wand choreography and walk through elaborate and interactive sets from the films that are filled with props and costumes.
At Stage 48, guests can learn about methods of production and try their hand at movie making and scoring pieces of music to moments on film. While there, you can also experience the Central Perk set from “Friends” and Sheldon’s apartment from “The Big Bang Theory.”
The tour wraps up with the Celebration of Awards Season room, which is filled with iconic props like the trombone from “The Music Man” and the jersey worn by the late Chadwick Boseman in “42,” as well as a collection of Oscar and Emmy awards.
