J.K. Rowling Wrote A Brand New Harry Potter Story! A Treat For The Eyes — And EARS! (Yes, There's Music Involved!)

Filed under: Music MinuteHarry PotterBookzGIFs

J.K. Rowling may be moving on, but it seems she'll always keep a toe in the Harry Potter universe!

Her most recent short story is a biography of Celestina Warbeck, the "Singing Sorceress" who is mentioned in passing in the original books. J.K. says:

"Celestina Warbeck is one of my favourite 'off-stage' characters in the Harry Potter series, and has been part of the Potter world ever since its inception, making an early appearance in the short-lived 'Daily Prophet' series I produced for members of the equally short-lived fan club run by my British publisher, Bloomsbury. Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style. I stole her first name from a friend with whom I worked, years ago, at Amnesty International's Headquarters in London; 'Celestina' was simply begging to be scooped up and attached to a glamorous witch."

You can read the story on the official Pottermore website, but first take a listen to an actual song snippet from Celestina…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Rupert Grint Gets Mistaken For Ed Sheeran & He Has The BEST Response For The Mix Up!

Filed under: Harry PotterRupert GrintEd SheeranHIGHlariousGIFs

rupert grint plays along when he gets mistaken for ed sheeran

Well, he COULD be taking a polyjuice potion for all we know!

Jokes aside, we love that Rupert Grint is such a good sport about this whole thing!

It seems that people, quite frequently, mistake the Harry Potter star for Ed Sheeran!

Because they're both gingers? Because they're both known for making magic?

Well, we guess they DO look KIND of similar! But the mistaken identities isn't even the best part!

The AH-MAZING thing about the situation is that Rupert has admitted to playing along with those people who think he's Ed!!

Which Harry Potter Movie Does Daniel Radcliffe Hate? And Why??

daniel radcliffe hates harry potter and the half blood prince

For millions of fans, Daniel Radcliffe IS Harry Potter.

His strong, consistent portrayal of the character over the course of ten years is barely matched in cinematic history!

But Daniel himself thinks he made a misstep. He may never like watching his own movies, but there's one he says stands head and shoulders above the rest as genuinely awful. He says:

EXCLUSIVE! Daniel Radcliffe Gets Real About The Friend Zone, His New Film What If, & Who Harry Potter Should've Ended Up With!

Oh, Daniel Radcliffe — we have to agree with your opinion on who Harry should've ended up with at the end!

But we're not going to spoil his answer (above) for you!

We had the greatest pleasure of EXCLUSIVELY sitting down with the one and only Dan Radcliffe to talk about his upcoming film, What If!

The Harry Potter superstar explained why he decided to go with a romantic comedy for his next film and his displeasure with the term "friend zone!"

His argument (and advice on the matter) is pretty rock solid.

See what he has to say about all things love and What If (below)!

J.K. Rowling Writes A Letter To A 15-Year-Old Girl As Dumbledore After Her Entire Family Is Murdered

Filed under: InspirationHarry PotterSad Sad

J.K. Rowling sent a very thoughtful gift to a girl who has been through a lot in the past month.

This is a very sweet ending to a very very sad story.

15-year-old Cassidy Stay's world was shattered last month when her uncle shot and killed her mother, father, and her younger siblings while he was trying to find his ex-wife.

The youngster was the only one to survive the horrific ordeal after she played dead, and three days after the shooting she spoke at a memorial service for her family. Cassidy's speech caught a lot of attention from Harry Potter fanatics who noticed she quoted Albus Dumbledore, saying:

Dumbledore Is Back In J.K. Rowling’s Next Movie! Take THAT Voldemort!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersHarry Potter

michael gambon casual vacancy

We'd totally be a part of Dumbledore's Army, any day of the week!

Michael Gambon (or Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore from the Harry Potter franchise) apparated on the set of the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy this past weekend!

Or maybe he used a Portkey! We'll never know!

In this movie, Michael plays the part of Howard Mollison, Pagford delicatessen's fictional proprietor! Sure, it's a notch or two down from being Headmaster, but oh well!

Filming is taking place in the Cotswold town of Northleach in the good ole United Kingdom!

We cannot wait to see his magical performance!
