Harper Collins have sent along four new pages from the forthcoming book Harry Potter Film Wizardry, which follows the ten-year process of making the Harry Potter films. The pages feature concept art and new quotations from many people behind the scenes and include: a page about the process of transforming the Great Hall into the Yule Ball for the "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" film;  a page about Severus Snape and the creation of Spinner's End; a page devoted to the village of Hogsmeade; and lastly, a page about Luna Lovegood and the Thestrals.

You can find the book's trailer at this link and can find more pages and images from the book here in the Leaky image galleries.

I seem to remember that the excellent BBC radio adaptation of LOTR back in the ’80s (which I have on cassette) was written by someone named Brian Sibley. Could this be the same guy? Anybody know?

These excerpts are such teases! At the end of each, I feel like I’ve just begun to scratch the surface of what I want to know about the subject. I have a feeling that this is the kind of book that will not prove very satisfying.

Definitely going to get this book, so I won’t read any of the pages until they are in my hands. So excited!!!

@WeenyOwl, Yes, it is the same Brian Sibley. He wrote some of the tie-in books for the film versions of LoTR, and can be seen talking about Tolkien on the ‘extras’ disks with the DVDs of those films. I can’t think of anybody better to write something like this. Here’s his website:
