The Hogwarts-esque college building in Xinle city, north China’s Hebei Province, which resembles the magical school of witchcraft and wizardry from Harry Potter, has been completed.

The building, located in the new campus of the Hebei Academy of Fine Arts, is ready to welcome animators.

Bizarrely named “Cinderella’s Castle”, it features a giant clock tower, castle walls, and turrets.

The arresting structure cost 2.4 billion yuan (approx.$384 million) and will be used as an animation industry base, not for teaching…. nor for witchcraft.
