“Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films” to be released this May!
Harry Potter: The Creature Vault was released last autumn by HarperCollins, and at the time, we also learned about another upcoming Potter book inspired by the films. The book was then called Harry Potter: The Book of Magical Places.
Now, the book has a new title AND a release date! It will be called Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond.
HarperCollins describes the book as
a comprehensive and delightful look at Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, [t]he Burrow, Azkaban [P]rison and all of the memorable places, both loved and feared, that brought the Harry Potter movies to life—a keepsake treasury bound in a debossed leatherette case and featuring a removable poster and interactive booklet.
Harry Potter: Magical Places from the Films: Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, and Beyond takes readers on a behind-the-scenes visual journey through all eight of the Harry Potter films. Jody Revenson provides detailed profiles of each location and pairs them with never-before-seen concept art, behind-the-scenes photographs, and film stills with supplementary information that reveals filmmaking secrets from the Warner Bros. archives.
Plus, there will be two exclusive inserts in the book – a map of Diagon Alley and a “Paintings of Hogwarts” catalog. Amazon has some pictures from the book inserts available, which you see in our gallery below:
With so much included within this book, it sounds – and looks – like a must-have book for any Harry Potter fan and the perfect addition to your Potter collection!
The book will be released on May 12, 2015, and is available to pre-order now from Amazon US and UK, as well as the HarperCollins website, where you can also learn more about the book, or check your local bookstore, which will probably be stocking the book. The recommended retail price for the book is $45.
