When Harry Left Hogwarts Poised to be the Best Fantasy Documentary Ever

(Yeah, we’re being a bit hyperbolic in that title.) When Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes on DVD and Blu-Ray, the special four-disc set will contain a documentary called When Harry Left Hogwarts, a behind-the-scenes film on the making of the final Potter-movie and what it meant for all the people involved. But, judging from this trailer, this doesn’t look to be a run-of-the-mill feel-good documentary, but rather a raw and honest account of who all these people both in reality and in contrast to the zeitgest that has created them. Directed by BAFTA-Award Winning docmentary filmmaker Morgan Matthews, this 48-minute film looks to be worth the price of the DVD/Blu-Ray alone. If you don’t believe us, check out the trailer above.

According to Bleeding Cool, this documentary will only be available as part of a four-disc Target exclusive. The DVD/Blu-Ray releases on November 11th.
