Trailer: Potter Documentary When Harry Left Hogwarts Looks Candid And, Frankly, Unusual

Unfortunately, if American shoppers want to see the end-of-an-era Potter documentary, When Harry Left Hogwarts, they’ll have to stump up for the 4-disc Deathly Hallows Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD set from Target.

Here in the UK, there’s no such thing as Target, but the doc will still be coming – from somewhere – as it has received a BBFC certificate. It’s very likely, I think, that it will be available at all retailers (probably also bundled in the full-on, multi-disc Hallows 2 set).

I’m glad the film is coming because, having just watched this trailer for it, I’ve found myself more interested in Potter than at any time since The Chamber of Secrets.

When Harry Met Hogwarts is only going to be 46 minutes and 10 seconds long but if it’s as candid as this trailer suggests, it will be rather more fresh and pack considerably more punch than the hours of typical EPK bumph already sprayed out of the Harry Potter marketing machine.

The images of the actors being bundled along with their heads wrapped were especially striking, I think. I’m hoping the film manages to capture a lot of that madhouse feeling. Well, assuming that the Potter films really are made under such surreal pressure. They must be, right? It must be one hell of a strange circus? I guess that’s what this film is supposed to tell me.

The film is directed by Morgan Matthews of Minnow Films. For my sins, I am yet to see any of his work, but I’m now definitely keen to get started…
