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:

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersHarry Potter

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!

emma watson feminist protest turkish prime minister

Hell yeah! Stick it to the man, Emma Watson!!

The Harry Potter actress is doing her duties as the UN Women's Goodwill Ambassador and protesting in the name of women!

The actress changed her Twitter icon to the picture (above) of her laughing and it's so stinkin' adorable!

But… why??

Well the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister, Bulent Arinc, gave a speech during Eid el-Fitr celebrations urging women to abide by a "strict moral code" which includes not laughing in public. (seriously)

So a worldwide protest has started where women are posting pictures of themselves laughing along with the phrase 'direnkahkaha' which in Turkish means, roughly, to resist laughter.

We LOVE this protest! So adorable in its defiance!

So, Ems posted ANOTHER laughing pic saying:

Kids Who Read Harry Potter Are More Likely To Be Accepting Of Homosexuality And Immigrants!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayHarry PotterBookzAmazing

Harry Potter is fighting bigotry, one reader at a time!

We always knew there was a reason we loved Harry Potter so much, and that's not just the butter beer talking!!

New studies have found that youngsters who read the popular books and indentify with the boy who lived are MUCH more likely to have positive attitudes towards LGBT people and immigrants!

If this all sounds like a bunch of nonsense to you, it's not as crazy as you might think!

harry potter to create franchise development team

Due to a continued interest in all things Harry Potter, Warner Brothers Entertainment has decided to create a Harry Potter Global Franchise Development team…which is just fancy speak for A LOT MORE HARRY POTTER.

If you thought the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando or the opening of an almost identical park at Universal Studios Japan wasn't enough wizardry, have no fear! The new team, which will operate out of London and Burbank, has plans to design more attractions as well as a "suite of Harry Potter digital services, and products including J.K. Rowling's own initiative, Pottermore."

Sounds good us to us!

J.K. Rowling better get busy…it's clear the fans are absolutely ravenous for more Harry Potter!!
