When Harry Left Hogwarts

Normally we don't cover such work as this, but with a franchise as epic as Hary Potter, a documentary chronicling the making of the multi-billion dollar series is just too good to pass up. In this case the feature won't be making a theatrical run, but the documentary entitled When Harry Left Hogwarts will  be available on one of the home video releases of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (though we're not sure if it's on both the DVD and Blu-Ray). The filmmakers start by asking some of the star-studded cast like Helena Bonham Carter and what they think the documentary should be about.

Here's the trailer for Morgan Matthews documentary When Harry Left Hogwarts (via SFX):

It's great that Gary Oldman is so blunt to say, "It would be nice if it was talented. Most of these things are awful." This looks like much less of the fluffy, featurettes that normally show up on DVD's for just a fleeting look at the series and the standard talk from the actors of how great it was to work with one another. I like how candid the interviews seem to be, and hearing from all the actors, especially those who completely transform and put on quite a theatrical performance. Personally, I can't wait to check this out when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II hits shelves on November 11th. Look good?

This will be fantastic. I loved the shot of that guy attempting to block the photographer. He should have taken him out with a knee shot!

Nobody ever interviews Dobby. Nobody cares about poor old Dobby. - Frying-pan Face-palm -

Just fyi Ethan, the last few seconds specifically state that it's only available on the 4-disc blu-ray combo pack. Looks amazing, can't wait.
