What will this "special Collector's Double issue" include? [source: EW.com]

• A look back at the entire Potter franchise, including exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and recollections from more than 20 stars and filmmakers. Daniel Radcliffe reveals how he almost didn’t bother auditioning for the role of Harry. “When they first approached us, my parents were told that whoever got the part would be signing on for six films — that were going to be filmed in Los Angeles. My parents felt that that would be far too big a disruption to my life.” When production later moved to the UK., though, Radcliffe put himself forward — and soon landed the role that would change his life forever.

• A preview of the final film, including fresh details on the 19-years-later epilogue that required a re-shoot last December after director David Yates’ failed first attempt with some heavy-handed aging makeup. As Rupert Grint recalls: “I looked really overweight, and with this weird feathered hairpiece they put on me, I looked like a mutant Donald Trump.”

• Christopher Columbus’ first-person account of the challenges of casting very young actors and working with them despite notably short attention spans. “The first film was shot in an almost documentary style because the actors were so untrained and raw,” he writes.

• Profiles of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, complete with original photography. “I have spent more of my life being someone else than I have being myself,” says Watson. The 21-year-old remembers how she used to exasperate the crew at Leavesden Studios by wandering around when she wasn’t shooting. “There was an orchard, a line of apple trees, on one side of the grounds. I would go down and walk around there. Those poor ADs! They must have had nervous breakdowns whenever I would disappear.”

• An exclusive close look at the props and sets from the series — and the stories behind them. For instance, Barry Wilkinson’s props department created hundreds and hundreds of wands for the eight films. “Over the years, it was becoming more and more difficult to think up different designs and shapes for each of them,” says Wilkinson.
