Harry Potter


Though it is far more than most series ever get, seven novels, a collection of short stories, two World Book Day spin off books and eight movies is not enough to satiate the nerd cravings of the Harry Potter fandom. A musical set ten years after the books has been playing in London all summer and is sold out for its entire run, with the script published as a book flying off the shelves all over the world. The new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, due in cinemas in November this year, is the next new foray into the magical world. (more…)


He’s not really a superhero per se, but Harry Potter is a hero, and his magic might well qualify as a super-power in the right light. So let’s just call Harry Potter a superhero, one that Daniel Radcliffe literally grew up playing, and given his post-Potter career, he’s definitely tried to teeter away from blockbusters, and special effects, and all those other trappings that are as synonymous with the Harry Potter films, as they are with, say, the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. So what would it take to get Radcliffe to save the day again? How about webshooters and a skin-tight red and blue outfit?  (more…)


Long before the birth of the Boy Who Lived, long before the rise of the dark wizard You Know Who and his Death Eaters, the wizarding world was nonetheless as exciting and secretive a place as it is today. Hidden away from the muggles of Britain and the nomajes of America, wizards and witches the world over led exciting lives of exploration and discovery, spells and sorcery. With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just over the horizon – due in cinemas on November 18th – we are very soon to learn about the lives they led in a world many decades before Harry Potter.

As the Olympics continue into their second half this week, a surprise TV spot dropped in the form of a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer. The film has been the driving force behind a (thus far successful) public interest revival of JK Rowling‘s Wizard World, made famous by the Harry Potter series of novels. Fantastic Beasts will cap off a lead up that included theme park attractions, an enormous Pottermore update, and a play/book release combo. If you would like to check out the trailer, continue after the jump. (more…)


Last night, a new Harry Potter story came out to the masses in book stores, albeit in a different format than what we had come to know and love; Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the official eighth story starring The Boy Who Lived is, as you’re probably already aware, a stage-play script released in book format. Despite the unconventional format, people are very excited for more Harry Potter stories to dive into all the same. However, people had been wondering if there was even more stories untold from the lightning scarred English wizard in our future… well, Potter-author J.K. Rowling recently gave us an answer.  (more…)

The Warner Bros stage at Sand Diego Comic Con would have been sorely lacking if they didn’t give us some glimpse of all the return to J K Rowling‘s globally beloved magical world. The all new angle from which upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will approach the wizarding world – taking place in a different time and country than the Harry Potter books and films released so far – has been on every avid Potterhead’s tongue since it was first announced way back in September 2013.

You may remember when, back in February, JK Rowling crushed the dreams of many a Potterhead by denying that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would be adapted for the big screen on her personal twitter. The story, which has written primarily as a stage production, was also confirmed to be given the book treatment (though still in script form). However, some interesting developments have recently taken place that have started up the engines of the Hogwarts Express once again, as fans are now whispering rumors of a movie being possible after all.



Yesterday, a ton of information about the North American Wizarding School hit the Pottermore along with a new story. The new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based onthe book by J.K. Rowling, should give us a closer look at the school later this November, but fans can go online now at Pottermore and take the North American Wizarding School House Quiz that helps place students in the house that suits them best. We’ve got the breakdown on the four new houses and the link to take the quiz. (more…)

We’ve seen the grown-up Potter family, as well as the Granger-Weasley clan.Though the storyline and roles of each character have been a tightly-guarded secret, the images which have been released do give us a great look at the former students of Hogwart’s Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry, now adults and with their own children receiving acceptance letters for admittance in the magical school. Today, we get another look at characters involved in this production and the cast members who portray them. Now it’s time for the Malfoys. (more…)
