Potty over Pot­ter

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - ENTERTAINMENT - ByGeraldineJeremiah

A3,000-strong crowd of die-hard Harry Pot­ter fans de­scended on London’s Le­ices­ter Square for the world pre­miere of Harry Pot­ter And The Deathly Hal­lows: Part 1 and to greet the film’s stars – Daniel Rad­cliffe, Emma Wat­son and Ru­per Grint. The re­cep­tion in London is only just the tip of a wave that will sweep the globe, as Pot­ter-ma­nia grips movie­go­ers.

For al­most a decade the Harry Pot­ter fran­chise has cap­ti­vated au­di­ences with the film’s stars be­ing its peren­nial crowd pleasers, and as such Galaxie mag­a­zine brings Harry Pot­ter and friends to the fore­front with an all-in-one three-cover spe­cial re­lease to­day.

Un­like Galaxie’s dou­ble cover which fea­tured Robert Pat­tin­son and Tay­lor Laut­ner sep­a­rately last year, the edi­tor de­cided not to cre­ate “Team Ed­ward” and “Team Ja­cob” fac­tions, which is why all three stars of Harry Pot­ter have been given a cover of their own in this is­sue.

Be­sides the keep­sake cov­ers, fans are also treated to an in­ter­view fea­ture on Rad­cliffe, where he re­veals, be­sides his be­hind-thescene ex­pe­ri­ences, some of the me­men­tos he’s re­tained from the film’s set.

“I’ve got the fake arm they used when my arm went floppy in the sec­ond film. I’ve also got a cou­ple of lit­tle boxes and things from the class­rooms. The cloaks have big pock­ets, so they fit quite a lot of gear.”

But Rad­cliffe still hasn’t picked up the one thing he wants the most from his years of play­ing Harry – the glasses. “That’s all I want. I don’t want the wand, just the glasses.”

So don’t be left be­hind and grab your col­lectible copy of Galaxie, out in news­stands to­day. And if, by some rare chance you are not a Harry Pot­ter fan, fret not as the Nov 16 is­sue is also packed full of other en­ter­tain­ment-re­lated good­ies from mu­sic, fea­tur­ing in­ter­views with artistes like Sec­ond­hand Ser­e­nade, Bruno Mars and the Plain White T’s plus the lat­est celebrity gos­sip and TV news.

Galaxie, pub­lished by Star Pub­li­ca­tions (M) Bhd, is also avail­able on­line at galax­ieblog. com.my. For more up­dates on the mag­a­zine, its blog and the en­ter­tain­ment world, fol­low Galaxie on Twit­ter (twit­ter.com/galax­iemag). –
