HARRY POTTER FILM WIZARDRY was the first book to delve into the fascinating and intriguing world of an enormously successful film franchise. In this new, updated edition, readers will now be able to explore all eight of the films. Including additional pages about the final two film installments, the revised version will also feature a Harry Potter Photo album.
The book is fully supported by Warner Bros. who have opened their archives, and is being put together by the very people who created the movies. It will feature interviews with cast members, including: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasely), and Alan Rickman (Snape), as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes stories from the producer on all seven films, David Heyman, director David Yates, and art director Stuart Craig.
Meant to resemble a creaky old spell book from the Harry Potter world, the jacket has a distressed leather look to it, complete with gold stamping. The interior features high-quality close-up pictures of the props, sets, costumes, and effects that bring depth to Harry's world. It is loaded with never-before-seen concept art and photos from Dumbledore's embroidered robes to the sets of Diagon Alley. The book will answer questions such as: How was Dobby created? How was Hedwig trained? How did the filmmakers bring the game of Quidditch to the big screen? In short: How does movie magic happen? It will go beyond the usual moviemaking books by offering reproductions of production memos, notes from the films' producer and art director, cast interviews, and fabulous bells and whistles providing a truly interactive reading experience.
