J.K. Rowling will be interviewed in a new Harry Potter documentary covering the opening of The British Library’s Making of Harry Potter exhibition.
As previously reported, the new exhibition will feature never-before-seen Harry Potter documents from J.K. Rowling’s personal archive. In addition to being on display at the library, the “artifacts” will be revealed in the BBC’s new documentary as they’re put in place at the museum. Even better: Rowling will be talking about them.
The doc will air on BBC Two this fall and sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun to watch. From the press release:
Harry Potter: A History of Magic is to be shown on BBC Two and will follow the exhibition in the run up to its opening at the British Library, as the ancient texts, artefacts and artwork are put on display. Harry Potter: A History Of Magic includes an interview with J.K. Rowling talking about some of the personal items she has donated to the exhibition whilst readings from famous fans playfully recreate some of the best loved spells, potions and magical moments from the series, exploring the origins of the world of Hogwarts, from basilisks through to broomsticks.
We can’t wait to see who these “famous fans” are! The exhibition and documentary are timed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first being published in the U.K. An exhibition companion book will also be released this fall and features the aforementioned artifacts. It’ll be published in the U.K. and U.S.
Finally, the exhibition will move to the United States next year (at which time it’ll be 20 years since the American publication of Sorcerer’s Stone).
This Harry Potter exhibition has turned into quite the event! We’re hoping that some of these artifacts reveal new Harry Potter canon.
