I had no idea what to expect from this book when I first ordered. I knew that it would give me info on the films but what I got when I opened my book this afternoon was beyond anything that I could have ever imagined. As a huge Harry Potter fan who has amassed other Harry Potter collectibles, this book probably tops the lot. Not only does it provide in-depth look at the first 6 films and a more than 'sneak peek' at the final instalments, it also gives readers the chance to own replica copies of props that are used in the film from the marauders map to the quidditch world cup program. Warner Brothers have out done themselves and proved without doubt that they were the right company to have the rights to the Harry Potter films.

For any Harry Potter fan who's childhood has been shaped by the Harry Potter books and films this book is a must buy. For me it already seems as important on my bookshelf as the Harry Potter books themselves.

There still isn't any Harry Potter art books, but this movie companion is probably the best thing any fan could wish for.

Harry Potter Wizardry is 160-page hardcover and designed like a scrapbook with little goodies -- booklets, stickers, maps, etc - attached to the pages. The cover is also nicely embossed. It's printed by publisher Collins Design.

The book covers all the seven films, including a sneak at at Deathly Hallows Part 2. It's packed with all sorts of interesting things from the Harry Potter movies. There are chapters on characters, the schools, mythical creatures, strange locations and stories about the wizardry world. You can read about all the teachers Harry had, the different villains from each movies, Ministry of Magic or all the strange inventions created by Ron's twin brothers.

There are plenty of photos shot behind the scenes showing the sets, the miniatures and models, actors and there are even some pieces of artwork and sketches.

The commentary provided includes interviews with the actors and staff. They talk about everything from creating sets like the Hogwarts castle to how they film the movie with computer graphics elements. I'm impressed with how much content is included.

This is the book Harry Potter fans have been waiting for. Grab it.

(There are some pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

As a huge harry potter fan i got very excited about this product, though worried at first it may seem like one of the boring uninformative fan made books that we come across. how very wrong my worries were!!

the book is brilliant for any muggle fan. the book contains everything & anything a harry potter fan could want to know... & more. the interviews, backstage information & little quirks such as copies of harrys letter from hogwarts or a copy of advanced potion making make entertaining little thrills that really make the reader feel involved & right there with all the magic.

could hardly put it down & i would reccommend for any true fan.
5 star rating? you bet, if there was a 6th star i would give it! :)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure what to expect from Film Wizardry having already purchased Harry Potter: Page To Screen. I was a bit concerned I would be left disappointed as Page To Screen is so large that it's hard to imagine there is anything else to discover. Fortunately I found Film Wizardry was quite different. While Page To Screen feels more grown up with an overwhelming amount of text and beautiful concept art, Film Wizardry has a younger look - it is charming, bright and fun and the text segments are much shorter but brimming with facts. While not as large as Page To Screen, Film Wizardry is surprisingly thick and overflowing with detail and photographs to show how they created the Harry Potter movies. As this book was made by those who worked in the Harry Potter art department, the real attraction here is the amazing prop replicas tucked inside. There's a little Yule Ball Programme, Educational Decrees, a Borgin & Burke catalogue, make-them-yourself sweet boxes, a copy of Advanced Potion Making which contains potion stickers, a Quidditch Programme, a Mafalda Ministry Identity Card, a bright Wizard Wheezes Catalogue, Harry Potters' Hogwarts Letter and my particular favourite, a little Marauders Map. The prop replicas are made to a very high standard and are fortunately not plagued by the annoying 'TM' (Trademark) that is often plastered all over Harry Potter prop replicas. All of them are secured neatly inside so they won't fall out and be lost/damaged while reading unless you choose to remove them yourself. I am really impressed with this book and I would definitely recommend it for the prop replicas alone. While Page To Screen is quite a spectacle to behold, Film Wizardry made me feel like I was fully immersed in the magical world of Harry Potter as the props are so fun and realistic. I think any Potter fan would love to own this.
