The Making of the Potterverse
A Month-By-Month Look at Harry’s First 10 Years
Experience the magic again with this chronicle of the young wizard who took the world by storm!
From the moment that J. K. Rowling conceived the idea of Harry Potter during a train ride, until the 1997 UK publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Making of the Potterverse tells the history of one of today’s most beloved sagas — in print, on screen, and in real life as waves of Pottermania swept fans young and old.
Covering the phenomenon through the theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, this book covers all of the major and minor news events centering on the world of Harry Potter, interweaving quotes from the films’ cast and crew members — among them Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint; directors Chris Columbus (The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets), Alfonso Cuarón (The Prisoner of Azkaban), and Mike Newell (The Goblet of Fire); producer David Heyman; and behind-the-scenes personnel who brought the magic to life.
