Inspired by the energetic fantasy rock of Harry and the Potters, filmmakers Megan and Mary Schuyler explore the proliferation of so-called "Wizard Rock" bands who perform songs about the most popular boy wizard in the history of contemporary literature. After discovering Harry and the Potters in the summer of 2004, the Schuyler sisters were coaxed by friends into joining MySpace and quickly discovered an entire community of bands that took musical inspiration from the wildly popular Harry Potter saga. Thanks to shows in libraries, coffee houses, and concert venues across the country, these bands have managed to gain a highly supportive community and fan base the likes of which is rare for even the most popular mainstream musicians. WIth over 100 Wizard Rock bands formed since 2000 alone, it's plain to see that this literary music trend isn't about to die out anytime soon.
