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 Knuts are really "minted", how to get a Hippogriff to work with actors, about the inspiration behind Hogwarts 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an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars.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.

This book is amazing! It's very visual, it's crammed with pictures of the cast, the films, the crew, the making of... and it explains a lot of curiosities and anecdotes from JK Rowling to the film staff, including of course the actors point of view. In addition, it comes with surprises you find all along the reading attached to the book: Harry Potter's acceptance letter, a Quiditch programme, Marauder's map among many others! It's certainly worth your moneyshow more
