During a visit to the Boston LeakyCon convention this weekend, #FantasticBeasts actor Dan Folger revealed that filming is expected to begin in February, 2020. He is quoted as saying the following:
“We haven’t started filming yet. We start in February.”
“Last we heard, J.K. … she’s been writing furiously, everyone was really happy with what she submitted, and we’re all just waiting for the new script. And that’s where we’re at.”
Johnny Depp’s return as antagonist Gellert Grindelwald is not confirmed.
While no release date has yet been issued, a new trailer for the upcoming mobile game “#HarryPotter: Wizards Unite” has been released. The game is similar to the very popular “Pokémon Go” augmented reality (AR) mobile game and is, in fact, being developed by the same company, Niantic, along with Warner Brothers.
The game will be available on all iOS & Android devices soon.
Released earlier today is the latest trailer for “#FantasticBeasts: #TheCrimesOfGrindelwald”:
#HarryPotter author J.K. Rowling was done with fans mispronouncing the first name of her character Hermione Granger, but how to solve the problem?
J.K. Rowling cleverly decided to make the pronunciation crystal clear in the fourth book series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which was first published in 2000.
In Chapter 23, “The Yule Ball”, Hermione teaches Bulgarian Quidditch star Viktor Krum the correct way to articulate her first name (Her-My-Oh-Nee). By doing so, the fans would get it right too!
J.K. Rowling confirmed a fan theory on Twitter Tuesday, after a user suggested that the scene was included solely “to school all of us who were saying HER-MY-OWN like Viktor Krum.”
All 8 #HarryPotter movies and “#FantasticBeasts and #WhereToFindThem” are being re-released in September for the big screen. The 9 films will be shown from Aug. 31 through Sept. 6, 2018 at all 141 Cinemark XD locations. Festival passes that allow viewing all 9 films will be available for $25.
Cinemark XD theaters can be found in 32 states. Please note that not all Cinemark theaters are XD. We strongly recommend that you confer with a desired location to make sure that it’s an XD theater before purchasing any tickets for these showing.
#WarnerBrothers released a new trailer for “#FantasticBeasts 2: #TheCrimesOfGrindelwald” at #SDCC!
The real-life Hogwarts Express (a.k.a., the North Yorkshire Moors Historical Railway) is looking to hire a volunteer #HarryPotter expert to greet fans at the Goathland Station, which was featured in the film as Hogsmeade Station.
The North Yorkshire Moors Historical Railway Trust needs super-fans to dedicate their time to answering the questions of Harry Potter fans who visit the station on a daily basis. The job will require the candidate to lead “small to medium-sized groups of Muggles and Wizarding enthusiasts on tours around Goathland station, delivering knowledge on the history of the railway and the station’s association with the Harry Potter franchise.”
The candidate will also be required to “Work with the Education Officer to create an engaging Wizarding itinerary with the aim of group visits and ensuring that they have an enjoyable visit that fulfils any required learning objectives.”
