Quite an interesting documentary - but my comments are short.
17 March 2002 | by (Glencoe, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Everything you wanted to know about J. K. Rowling & the immergence of the "Harry Potter" phenomena.

Also included are "teaser" or "spoiler" tidbits about what will happen to Harry & the gang in future books.

Quite interesting to learn about J.K Rowling & her life, where the character names came from.

Not just a blatant "Harry Potter" rip-off or someone trying to cash in on the "Harry Potter" phenomena but this documentary actually is informative.
