  • HP Fans will like it

    By WDW1Fanatic
    If you are a HP fan, this BBC special contains some interesting moments and additional background what was going on in JK Rowlings head as she developed the stories. You'll smile when a handful of the secondary actors appear several times reading exerpts from the books. This is not a "best of" in terms of movie clips, and you won't see the primary movie actors in this show, but if you'd like a fond remembrance providing a little more insight of your time with the books and movies, this one is worth a look.
  • Awe inspiring.

    A further magical look into an amazing world. The cool details and lore. The behind the scenes of the British library are just breath taking. Only a true wizard can handle the amazement. 🧙🏼‍♀️ Muggles need not watch
  • Very Insightful! JK Rowlings is a creative author

    So interesting to see and hear about the evolution of her Harry Potter series of books. Worth watching if you’re a HP fan.
