Happy Halowe'en!



Hallowe'en is an important day for Harry Potter. Not just because he's a wizard at a magical castle, but because of the many things that happened on Hallowe'en. Harry's parents died, Hermione was attacked by a troll, and Mrs. Norris was petrified after Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday Party, just to name a few.

With shining Jack O'Lanterns, bubbling cauldrons, and witches on brooms, it's only natural that Hallowe'en is important to Harry Potter and his classmates.


Happy Hallowe'en!

FANTASTIC BEASTS GLOBAL EVENT - FIVE MOVIES!!!

Yesterday, we got to see the wonderful fan event, where J.K. Rowling herself announced that there will be five Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them movies!


We also learned quite a deal more about the actors and their characters, as well as Fantastic Beasts as a whole during the sneak peek featurette!

I'm sure I'm right in saying that we are all excited for November 18th when the first of FIVE Fantastic Beasts movies comes out.

Pottermore Patronus Test

Pottermore has finally released an official Patronus Test! If you haven't discovered your patronus yet, do so here.

This unique online experience is unlike any of the other Pottermore personality tests. It's a mix between a quiz, a game, and a video, and it's very exciting. Fantastic Beasts actor Eddie Redmayne, who play's Newt Scamander, discovered his patronus on Pottermore.


So think of your happiest memory, and "Expecto Patronum!"

Cursed Child, History Of Magic In North America, Pottermore Presents, Chamber Of Secrets Illustrated Edition, And Fantastic Beasts!

This year is definitely the year for potterheads. We've got Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, New Pottermore articles by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets Illustrated Edition, three Pottermore Presents ebooks, and Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, just to name a few. And we can certainly expect more.

In July, we got to read about, (and lucky people who got tickets even got to watch), Harry's family, and the troubles that being Harry Potter, or his son for that matter, can cause.


In September, we got some exciting information about characters, places, and objects from the Harry Potter stories, in a three part e-book series, Pottermore Presents.
The books featured stories ranging from Remus Lupin, to Azkaban Prison.


The other day, the second Harry Potter book illustrated by Jim Kay, Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets Illustrated Edition, was released. Filled with beautiful paintings of Kay's interpretation of the story, this book is definitely a must have for potterheads.


Finally, we recently received a new trailer for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. In the trailer, we get a tantalizing glimpse of new characters, new places, and most of all, new challenges. We all can't wait until November 18th, when the movie will be released!


I'm very excited to see what J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World has to offer this year!
