Not only was Scorsese's re-creation of George Méliès' 1903 movie set for Kingdom of the Fairies
built in its entirety on the backlot of England's Shepperton Studios, so was much of its 1930s Paris. Additional parts of the train station that Hugo called home were also constructed at Pinewood and Longcross studios. ''In fact, we only shot for five days in Paris,'' production designer Dante Ferretti says. ''That's because the only two sets we didn't build were the Paris library where Hugo (Asa Butterfield) and Isabelle (Chloë Grace Moretz) discover who Georges Méliès is and the stage at the Sorbonne where they celebrate Méliès at the end. Everything else was built in its entirety.''Christian Blauvelt
