FILM TIE IN: Harry Potter: Film Wizardry

Release Date: 28/11/10


Immerse yourself in the world of the spectacular Harry Potter film series, and learn why Yule Ball ice sculptures never melt, where Galleons, Sickles and Knots are really 'minted', how to get a Hippogriff to work with actors, about the inspiration behind Hogworts castle, and why Dementors move the way they do. Written and designed in collaboration with the cast and crew that brought J.K. Rowling's celebrated novels to the silver screen, Harry Potter: Film Wizardry delivers an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars. Full of removable, facsimile reproductions of props and paper ephemera from the movies, this collectible volume offers a privileged look at the Harry Potter films and the talented group of Muggles that has made true movie magic.


With the written series having completed a good few years ago, the films are fast coming to the climax with the soon to be released first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. What Transworld have done is take some of the movie magic, added their own blend of wizardry alongside the film’s innovators and created this magical offering.

Contained within this title is a whole set of facts, some great pullout/accessories alongside some almost magical film memorabilia like the Quidditch World Cup programme, the education decree as well as catalogues from places such as Borgin and Burkes Auctioneers and the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. Add to this Harry’s Hogwarts invite and you know that it’s going to be a title that will delight fans both young and old. Great stuff.
