Review: Harry Potter Film Wizardry by Brian Sibley

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the Harry Potter books and movies. So when I saw this book, I knew I had to check it out! I really enjoyed reading interviews with cast members, producers, and directors. It really made me appreciate the film adaptations even more now that I know the reasons why some parts of the books were cut out of the movie versions. It was interesting to learn how much input J.K. Rowling had for the film adaptations. The producers really respected her opinions. Large color photographs from the movie sets and samples of concept art provide fascinating peeks behind the scenes. Several extras items are included along with the book as well - copies of the Marauder's map, brochures, tickets, Harry's Hogwarts letter, and other fun items from the films that fans will love. 

Harry Potter Film Wizardry is truly a must-read for fans of the books and movies.
