Avatar Imagehermy007 says: i really want to check it out, but i think im gonna wait until i buy the dvd from target....because they're the only retail place who will give you that if you get the blu-ray combo pack for part 2? right?!

It looks like Target isn't the only place where you can get the documentary.Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I promised myself I wouldn't cry. . . .

I'm bawling right now. Ah, Harry, you'll live on forever!Avatar Imagevandy says: This is one of the best DVD features I've ever seen.. the last day in the set for actors was so moving .. Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Excellent DVD, which really gives a flavour of what day to day life has been like for the cast and crew on this huge film series. I was really fascinated by the plasterer who worked on the set of HP for ten years and has a wand as a souvenir. Emma's experience playing Hermione in her late thirties with child actors who were nearly the same age as she was in her first scene started the tears rolling. Wouldn't have missed it.Avatar Imagemencia says: :'''') that made me cry, I think I am still in denial that it has ended. it's also amazing to see how much work was put into it and to appreciate their effort moreAvatar Imagemoglet says: I really loved watching that, it was beautifully done, great to see so much behind the scenes footage. Very emotional at the end. Thanks for posting this.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: That was without a doubt one of the best things posted here at Leaky that I have ever seen... & I have seen a LOT of posts here! :+DAvatar ImageBless_the_children says: Amazing! I blubbered like Hagrid the whole time D:Avatar ImageBless_the_children says: Amazing! I blubbered like Hagrid the whole time D:Avatar Imagegiraffelions says: Wow, this is amazing! Avatar ImageLivi22 says: Made me cry for most of it. Love it!Avatar ImageethanHP says: Why do they love make us cry so much?!!! This was so beautiful and well done!Avatar Imagepotterlover18 says: This documentary helped me realize how hard it is to make a movie, especially one of this magnitude. We can talk about things we wish were different about the movies, but that doesn't make them any less amazing. At the end when David Heyman started crying I was like, "Oh my gosh!" Everybody seems to be always so composed in other interviews, but this documentary was different because everybody seemed so vulnerable. Emma talking about her fear of people's comments and not wanting to mess up made me want to give her a BIG hug. Dan talking about feeling like he was 10 was a great part too. I could really feel what the cast and crew were feeling while watching this – wow. And I’m SO GLAD it’s online because I don’t have bluray. THANK YOU to Leaky and the YouTube uploader! Avatar Imagejudge says: Absolutley loved it even though i cried most the way through, Harry Potter will always live on in all our hearts xAvatar Imagehermioneginnyluna says: This is pure awesome.Avatar Imagehermioneginnyluna says: This is pure awesome.Avatar ImageHarryLoverAllRound says: That was truly amazing. I never thought about how hard it would be for the ending for the cast. It was so hard to watch all the goodbyes and the final shoot of Dans and Ruperts and Emmas, to think about the pain of knowing that. It was a really well done doc. Harry potter lives forever. Avatar ImageHarryLoverAllRound says: potterlover is soooo right. I couldn't believe the sudden hit of realization that these people are just people, i've always known that, but its so true. Avatar ImageCloakKnight says: Yeah... I couldn't get through the first 2 minutes alone without bawling like a baby. Merlin, I love "Harry Potter" :)Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: What did the plasterer say about their work - like Hagrid who helps everyone and does not get recognized for it? These movies are a HUGE testament to the artistry and skills of all these craftsmen who brought to life our beloved Harry Potter universe. They really should be given accolades for ten years' work.Avatar ImageHarry-Potter.fan says: That was incredibly emotional. Harry Potter is really something that you will keep with you for the rest of your life, the interview was fantastic, but it pains me too see it being filmed with a green screen, because it shows that there isn't really that magical world they're filming in. Harry Potter is definitely my life, it has been my childhood and it has really moved me so much. It's depressing to realise that it's over, but we can hold together. I really love Harry Potter, words can't explain how much. :') Avatar Imagestarlightbreaker says: Alright! :-) I can't wait to watch it! @ Won_Two: I bet it is, I agree with your statement.
