Having watched all of the movies after reading all of the books, it's a daunting task to be able to compare what's on the big screen to what was originally written. Obviously only so much detail can be covered in the movies, and they do the best that they can. This book takes you behind the scenes to see exactly how everything falls into place in front of the camera.

What we see while watching the movies pales in comparison to everything that takes place to simply capture that short scene. It's pretty amazing what the actors go through. This book is no substitute for the movies, or the books themselves. But it is a great supplement to fill in the small pieces for any Harry Potter fan.

Beware, this book is huge. You can spend hours reading and barely skim the surface. For the price it is a great value considering the sheer amount of information contained within. This book is a must for any Harry Potter fan.

This seems like a very interesting book...I love Harry Potter. Kind of expensive, though...$75!!!

I can't wait to read this! The Film Wizardry was too short for my liking, but this looks extremely extensive.
