You can tell Film Wizardry is bursting with magic before you even open it! It's full of the secrets of behind the screen. It has tons of stories from the cast and crew, and includes lots of photos and concept art that have never been seen before! It also has some props in it, that could be pulled out of pockets. These props include a Yule Ball program, the "Educational Decrees", and the Marauder's Map (which is very lame compared to mine!)
It really made me appreciate the movies more, and also understand why they cut out some of my favorite parts in the book (though I still don't understand why they couldn't have 3 minutes where they talk about house elves in GoF...)
The whole design of the book was great. It looked like a scrapbook! It was all designed by the Harry Potter graphic designers so it felt familiar and "matched" the movies (sort of).
It was definitely worth the $40 that were spent on it!
