Airdate: We Are Wizards

3Here’s one for fans of Harry Potter –a documentary coming to ABC2 that looks at fan-dom and the extremities some go to in their love of a wondrous character.

It includes indie band Harry and The Potters who created a new musical genre, Wizard Rock, that now includes others such as Draco and the Malfoys, The Whomping Willow and The Hungarian Horntails (4-and 7-year-old brothers).

The film also tells the story of fans Melissa Anelli, a former journalist who runs The Leaky Cauldron fan website and wrote a bestselling book about the phenomenon; Brad Neely, comedian and animator who created an unauthorised audio track intended to be played while watching the movie; and 14-year-old Heather Lawver, maker of a creative writing website who organised a global boycott against Warner Bros. in the name of Harry Potter fans everywhere.

It airs 8:30pm Wednesday July 22nd on ABC2.
