Post Video: First look at Hogwarts detailed map from Harry Potter Wizard's Collection

The Harry Potter Wizard's Collection official website released a preview of the detailed and coloured map of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the surrounding areas of the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade, a poster-sized version of which will come with the 31-disc DVD and Blu-ray collection, out on September 7 in the U.S., September 10 in the U.K. That, and a video where art designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima describe creating the map, can be seen below.

Created exclusively for the Harry Potter Wizard's Collection, this full-color map is 24" x 36", printed on fabric and suitable for framing. Created by MinaLima Design, the map is illustrated by Miraphora Mina, a former graphic designer on the Harry Potter films, and includes film locations such as Hogwarts castle, the black lake, Hagrid's hut, the Forbidden Forest, the Quidditch pitch, Hogsmeade and beyond.

Photos!: Larger version of Hogwarts map

Editor's Note: This map is based on the film locations, which are quite different than the original sketch J.K. Rowling made of the grounds. Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima consulted with the film series' production team to confirm the locations shown on the map.
Pre-order the Harry Potter Wizard's Collection at the Warner Bros Shop, on or (region-free) now.

Agreed. Hagrid's Hut is completely wrong there. It should be by the forest, above the Whomping Willow image. And the Quidditch pitch should be over to the left more, on the other side of the front gates. Honestly, didn't they even look at Jo's map? (see below)

I like it , but why is Hogsmeade Station on the opposite side of the map from Hogsmeade? Also the Quidditch pitch seems kind of close to Hogsmeade.

I wish they could have set up the map to how JK Rowling had originally drawn it.

Well this was based from the interpretations from the filmmakers more than it was Jo's map, so that's why it is the way it is.
