Readers may recall the Harry Potter Film Wizardry book, which was released in 2010 and included an in-depth look at the creation of the Harry Potter films. This book is now being released with addition information focusing on the "Deathly Hallow" films, neither of which had been released when the book was first put into print.

The updated edition of the Harry Potter Film Wizardry book will be released October 23, 2012. Many thanks to SnitchSeeker for the tip!

Pass. Already have “Film Wizardry”, and I’ll assume some of this has already been covered in “From Page to Screen”. It’ll have to be something spectacular to make me go out and get this.

Hmm guess I can give my brother back the copy I “borrowed” from him and get the new improved one for myself.

I never got Film Wizardry when it came out just for this reason, no DH. But now its added to my ever growing list. :)

I was actually planning to buy it, so now I’ll wait until then!

Why didn’t they just wait and do it properly in the first place.

Honestly, I agree with moglet. All that money sunk into the book, and now they think I will fork over all that money to buy it again? It is a lovely book, but how aggravating!

And will we EVER see Ultimate Editions of the final two films? I guess WB figures we will dish for the boxed set (I will have to sell some of my children into slavery to afford THAT.) rather than actually allow us to complete our sets.

I guess I get tried of being taken for granted as a fan.

I know I shouldn’t buy this, as I have the previous edition and Page to Screen. But it wouldn’t take a lot to make me waver… Some good Snape-related info and pictures would do it. How they play with our feelings!

WB is taking advantage of HP fans. I have all the books, multiple editions, example UK adult and children’s editions DVDs both film books. etc. Now they want us to purchase an overpriced DVD set come this September and another Film Wizardry Book with the same content except for DH info. Greeeeeeeeeedy Corporation. Some of the items that are in the DVD set I would like to have but I have bills to pay and food to put on my table. BAD PR WB. Very sad Harry Potter Fan.

I agree with everyone who has commented on the issuing of an expensive collector’s book with unfinished content. I already own the first book and do not intend forking out yet again. Corporate greed is my conclusion.

Yes, I couldn’t agree more, I bought the first copy of it almost as soon as it came out, and now they decide to add some stuff to it from the last two movies and want me to spend another pile of cash on something that I already have most of? I don’t think so! Not to mention that I spent something like 70 dollars on ‘page to screen’ so I can only assume that I would have to fork over another wad of cash for this. I really do wish that they had waited, because this is just ridiculous! What other new ways could they possibly think of to make more money!? It’s as if the franchise isn’t making enough, so now they have to go and pull something like this. It’s frustrating and saddening to think that something that would have made me extremely excited, like this book, could make me sad and a bit angry.

For those of you in the States who don’t have the book but are thinking about buying it, it is (only) $32 on Barnes & Noble’s website. Orders over $25 qualify for free shipping.

I agree with many of you here. I bought the FW not too long ago because I couldn’t wait to buy it. I also got a complete set of all 8 films on BR for Christmas. I’m actually very pissed. The same with those new games. I can’t get both Xbox and PS3. I would have to become a millionaire before I could aford all of that as well as going/ doing/ buying other amazing stuff (like other HP merch which costs a fortune).
