Kickstarter Campaign for The Binge Watcher's Guide to The Films of Harry Potter Lauches
For the second title in their new Binge Watcher’s Guide series, Riverdale Avenue Books has launched a Kickstarter campaign. The Binge Watchers Guide to the Harry Potter Films by Cecilia Tan, an unofficial guide, kicked off on the author’s birthday and has already raised the initial funding within a week from fans eager to experience this new look at their favorite universe.
Twenty years have passed since the Harry Potter films were first released for an entire generation of moviegoers. The films broke ground in every way: at the box office, in movie making art, and pulling off an unprecedented magic trick of keeping the main cast together for ten full years, as they grew from schoolkids to adults.
Readers who contribute to this campaign will be able to receive an ebook, paperbacks at a discounted price, ebooks and print books bundled with goodies like a Binge Watcher book bag, and some virtual experiences with the author such as a tarot card reading, a virtual tea or a one-on-one watch of one of the movies. The Kickstarter campaign starts now until May 8, 2020.
“Binging the Harry Potter movies is the perfect way to really see how the series holds together, as well how the actors age just like in the books. Cecilia Tan has been knee-deep in the fandom for two decades and is the perfect guide to take fans on this journey,” said Publisher Lori Perkins
“We know there's a global pandemic going on. The first time I felt some relief from the unrelenting stress since my household started isolation in early March was when some friends suggested we should each make cocktails, pop in our DVDs of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and livetweet it together. In the end we didn't do it, but I started watching the movie anyway....and I realized it was even better than a cocktail for lifting my spirits and relieving my stress. It literally let me escape our troubled world for a while. What better time to be encouraging people to revisit these movies than now? ” said Author Cecilia Tan.
