Back in February, J.K. Rowling insisted that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child would remain a play, and not make a seemingly inevitable migration to the big screen. So what’s this about Warner Bros., producers of Harry Potter films past and Fantastic Beasts movies future, filing for a Cursed Child trademark in the UK?
J.K. Rowling is once again wrapped up in the world of Harry Potter, almost a decade after the publication of the series’ final book. The new play is running in London, a prequel movie is coming soon, and now we know the sequel to the prequel has already been written.
It’s using a color-coded threat level system to determine how much danger the world is in. Please send help to America’s wizards because they are not well.
Today, J.K. Rowling released what is definitely her best work of the recent spate of stories related the wizarding world of the United States. Possibly because it has so many familiar Harry Potter elements: orphans, purebloodism, the power of love, etc.
So far, we’ve seen two trailers for the upcoming Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and sure they’ve been pretty good. But there haven’t been many actual beasts in them, or a great explanation of what the adventure in the film will be. This video does both.
They are owls.
We got the Potters yesterday, and today brings us the rest of Harry Potter’s power trio: Hermione (Noma Dumezweni) and Ron (Paul Thornley) with their daughter Rose (Cherrelle Skeete).
We have the very first photos of the Potters in the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play. Ginny (Poppy Miller) looks like a perfectly normal adult, Albus Severus (Sam Clemmett) looks like an average Hogwarts student, and Harry (Jamie Parker) very much looks like he’s ready to toss this whole wizarding thing in a…
Ever wonder how there could only be about 18 Gryffindors in Harry’s Hogwarts class and that J.K. Rowling has said there were 1,000 students at the school? Well, a fan theory has an answer... a depressing, depressing answer.
I just want to love you, Harry Potter universe. So, in my mind, I have to believe this story about the four houses of Ilvermorny, the American wizarding school we’ll be seeing soon in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them spin-off movies, isn’t true. Because, if it is, wow did America screw up its magic school.
The latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them just hit the web, and it’s a fantastic look at JK Rowling’s Wizarding world in America.
A humble wooden chair sold at a NYC auction for $394,000 on Wednesday—all because it happens to be the seat that J.K. Rowling planted her buns on while writing the first two Harry Potter books.
Mostly a lesson that if J.K. Rowling can get rejected, what is the point of the rest of us trying to do anything? No, okay, I know, it’s meant to be inspirational rather than downbeat. Still...
All this week, J.K. Rowling has been publishing History of Magic in North America, one part a day for four days. When it’s been at its best, it’s been sloppy; when its not at its best—which is most of the time—it’s uninformed and under-researched. At its worst, it is downright offensive, and here’s why.
J.K. Rowling, creadora de esa mítica saga de novelas llamada Harry Potter, estrenará cuatro cuentos basados en este universo en los cuales se dedica a narrar el lado mágico de los Estados Unidos, y que servirá como abre bocas ante el estreno de la película Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, también parte de este…
“The History of Magic in North America” is a new series of four original stories about the Wizarding United States which will premiere tomorrow on Pottermore at 9:00 AM.
It’s taken several years, but Hogwarts is finally ready to open its doors in California. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park extension at Universal Studios Hollywood officially opens April 7, but we were given an early tour by Alan Gilmore, the supervising art director for both the Harry Potter films and…
Good news for everyone who won’t be able to make it to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: the script for the play will be on sale July 31. That’s right after the official opening of the play. And on Harry’s birthday.
We love to think our favorite fictional characters live happily ever after. But if we’re being realistic about it, there’s no way every single prince and princess who ever got together, stayed together. On that note, Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint has bad news about his character, Ron Weasley.
We’ve known about the existence of an international wizarding community in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe. Now, in a recent update to Pottermore, she’s revealed the identities of a number of additional magical academies across the world.
