"We Are Wizards," a documentary about the Harry Potter fan community which was released in 2009, can now be watched in its entirety here at SnagFilms.


For those unfamiliar with the "We Are Wizards" documentary, more information can be found here or below:

The documentary profiles some of the power players in the underground Harry Potter creative community. I'm not talking sinister meetings in the woods about the Dark Arts. Instead, the film offers us a seven-year-old rock star and his teen pop idols, hilarious audio-commentary set to the movie and online creative writing sites waging war with corporate agents.

The books' themes of good versus evil and using inner strength to overcome challenges serve as a catalyst for many to face personal obstacles, or just to meet like-minded folk and have fun. It is staggering to learn of the different ways people touched by J.K. Rowling's book series are honoring the characters and story with their own ideas, passion and talents. The Harry Potter mythos allows the nerdy, the average, the young, the downtrodden, and the bored a chance to borrow a little inspiration and step out of their respective worlds to be a part of something BIG. Not to say the aforementioned groups are lacking in talent. The fan arena is simply a staging ground for sharpening skills and surprising oneself with the results - much like the epic story of a boy wizard.
