After the overwhelming success of Mina Lima’s illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the dynamic duo that completed the art for the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films has announced that they will be illustrating the second book of the Potter series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and it’s set to release in the coming fall!
After just two weeks of Mina Lima’s artistic rendition of Sorcerer’s Stone flying off bookshelves everywhere, the landslide success of this publication couldn’t be ignored. Fans were itching to know whether this beautification–instilled with eight magical paper pop-ups and cut-outs–was a one-off, or if we could expect a progression of artistry from Mina Lima, just as we await Jim Kay’s illustrated versions every year.
According to Mugglenet, “after teasing that an announcement was coming, the artists revealed that the MinaLima edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be released in fall 2021 and that the edition is currently in production.
“We really wanted it to feel like a legacy piece that you can hand down to your children, families, friends, fellow wizards,” said Mina in the video posted on Instagram about their illustrated Sorcerer’s stone, and announcing their upcoming Chamber of Secrets.

It seems that Harry Potter fans can never tire of this one-of-a-kind fantasy series, and we’re more than ready to reach into our wallets in order to add the same book (but in an entire reimagined way) to our massive collections. We can have several copies of these treasures, but we are not complaining.
Anything that brings to life the stories that made us (from childhood to today) will make us glow from the inside out without having to say “lumos.”
