Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets Illustrated Edition Animated Book Trailer
The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.
And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.
But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself?
Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay’s dazzling full-colour illustrations in this stunning new edition of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets. Breathtaking scenes, dark themes and unforgettable characters – including Dobby and Gilderoy Lockhart – await inside this fully illustrated edition. With paint, pencil and pixels, award-winning illustrator Jim Kay conjures the wizarding world as we have never seen it before. Fizzing with magic and brimming with humour, this inspired reimagining will captivate fans and new readers alike, as Harry and his friends, now in their second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, seek out a legendary chamber and the deadly secret that lies at its heart...
Just when we thought the wizarding world couldn’t get more magical, Jim Kay proves us wrong once again with these simply gorgeous illustrations of the second Harry Potter story.
From a comprehensive da Vinci-esque study of Mandrakes, to an exquisitely detailed portrait of Rubeus Hagrid, we can now take a look at a few of the exclusive pages from his latest illustrated edition – and we suspect you may enjoy them.
The book will feature 115 new colour images, and is to be published in more than 21 languages around the world, so as many people as possible can enjoy Kay’s artwork.
Fans can also expect Kay’s take on the pesky, potato-headed gnomes that cause the Weasley’s endless stress at the Burrow, a beautiful illustration of a female phoenix, and an ethereal take on the towering Hogwarts castle at night. The front cover, much like the original, features Mr Weasley’s iconic flying Ford Anglia.
