The third title in an interactive series of books that features both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to create the ultimate behind-the-scenes guide to the wizarding world.

From wands and racing brooms to a case full of beasts, the wizarding world is full of enchanted objects and magical devices. With this interactive book, go behind the scenes of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and all eight Harry Potter films to learn how the myriad artifacts of the films were lovingly designed and crafted.

Detailed profiles of everything from the Golden Snitch to Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes and Newt Scamander’s magical case include blueprints, concept illustrations, unit photography and more. Jam-packed with bonus inserts throughout, including stickers, removable extras, lift-the-flaps and many other fascinating items, this book takes young readers on a thrilling tour of the magical artifacts of the wizarding world.

Review 2017

J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World: Movie Magic Amazing Artifacts is Volume Three in a set of Harry Potter books looking at the eight movies, and Fantastic Beasts. I have already reviewed the first two – ‘Extraordinary People and Fascinating places‘ and ‘Curious Creatures‘.

This third book looks at all the props, set decor and visual effects used to create the magical world of Harry Potter.

As with the first two books, we start with Fantastic Beasts. Open the first page and you enter into a world of Newt Scamander’s Magical Case and the world beyond. From how to enter the case, to capturing the unusual animals, this book will tell you all the secrets. It will even show you around Newt’s shed and his items you will find inside.

After looking through all the Fantastic Beasts props, you then get to delve into the world of Harry Potter, and of course it couldn’t start any other way than with the ‘Hogwarts Acceptance Letter’, of which there is a copy stuck in for you to open. The letter was actually hand-signed by graphic artist Miraphora Mina, who worked on the set.

Each double page is dedicated to the artifacts of a particular person, place, society, or even just the artifact itself. Once again the book is filled with lift up flaps, papers to unfold, stickers to stick and at the back there is also instructions on how to make your own wand. Be careful though, some of the items are only slightly stuck down and could easily be pulled out, or ripped.

This collection of books have taught me so much about the films that I didn’t know. They are truly a keepsake for any Harry Potter fan.
