Do you think you’re a Harry Potter fan?  Did you pay $350 for that 31-disc Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection box set?  You’re not a fan.  Warner Bros. is going to find the true fans (that have lots of money).  EW reports that the studio is releasing Harry Potter: Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey (never mind that I’m pretty sure can’t have two colons in the same title).  The eight-volume collection is designed to resemble a bookshelf at Hogwarts; “Six of the books focus on the workings of the creative departments behind the films — wardrobe, props, special effects, and the like — while the seventh is a commemorative keepsake offering an intimate look at the relationships that developed between the cast and crew over the decade it took to produce all eight films. But the best part by far is the eighth book: a scale replica of The Monster Book of Monsters (don’t worry, it doesn’t bite — I hope).”  I have no idea how that’s worth $1,000.

But maybe it’s worth $600?  The set is currently 40% off at Amazon, and you can click here to pre-order it.  The set is limited to 3,000 editions worldwide, and will be released on December 4th.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
