Harry Potter: Page to Screen
Eight Films, four directors, hundreds of actors, over 10 years of filming one unique series. Now Harry Potter: Page to Screen brings together every aspect of the series’ fascinating history in one comprehensive companion volume. When a seemingly unremarkable children’s book landed in the offices of David Heyman’s offices it was relegated to a ‘low-priority’ bookshelf. It was only when a secretary - leafing through volumes at random - happened to read it, love it and pass it on to the producer by hand that the series began its momentous journey to becoming an epic cult fantasy. Now Harry Potter fans can read about every aspect of the films’ development from casting calls to the creation of the wizarding world. With hundreds of never-before-seen photographs, in-depth chapters on magical creatures, artefacts and locations as well as a film-by-film breakdown of the expansion of the Harry Potter universe, this lavishly illustrated volume takes you behind the scenes of one of the most popular film series in history. Waterstones invites you to re-visit the films, characters and landscapes of Harry Potter. Read exclusive interviews with the cast about working and growing-up on set and discover Daniel Radcliffe’s own take on the challenges of being the face of the boy who lived. A beautiful chronicle of a unique film experience.
