Undoubtedly, those were the words on every Muggle's lips this morning when it was revealed by J.K Rowling herself that a new flick was in works set in the universe of the world's most beloved wizard, Harry Potter.
The author is expanding the universe for the first time with her screenwriting debut, telling the story behind one of Harry's Hogwarts textbooks, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them! Even though the movie acts as neither a prequel or sequel to the famed series, we have a feeling that some of Rowling's most beloved characters will still manage to make an appearance, even with the film set 70 years before Harry's time!
As we started hyperventilating at the news of the new wizarding flick, we can only imagine what die-hard fans are feeling right now.
We imagine it looks a little something like this….

J.K. Rowling put a real Confundus charm on us!
After making a beloved name for herself as an author by writing the already classic Harry Potter series, she chose to give that name up and write under a pseudonym!
Why would she want to hide her lumos under a bushel like that? It was all about the work being judged on its own. She says:

Where’s an invisibility cloak when you WANT one?!?
With nary a mention of Muggles, Quidditch, or Horcruxes in Robert Galbraith’s The Cuckoo’s Calling, a murder mystery book about a down-and-out private dick that was published this past Spring, somehow the Sunday Times in London still detected Harry Potter-like shadow cast upon its pages.
After a little sleuthing of their own, the newspaper discovered that Robert Galbraith was none other than J.K. Rowling writing undercover!
Upon the revelation being made public, Jo said:

“The one I miss the most, beyond any character, is Dumbledore. He was a strange character because I always say I wrote him from somewhere in the back of my brain. He would often say things I didn’t know I believed. But once I saw that Dumbledore had said them, I thought, 'Oh yeah that’s right, that’s true.'”

Maybe J.K. Rowling misses all the fighting now that He Who Must Not Be Named has been defeated, because she just opened up a can of
whoop literary criticism!
The Harry Potter author was at an event in NYC celebrating the launch of her new book, an adult novel called Casual Vacancy.
During the audience Q&A section, a fan asked what the difference was between the sex in her new book and in the megahit 50 Shades Of Grey. She said:

Now this is a rags to riches to even MORE RICHES story!
J.K. Rowling has officially listed her old eight bedroom house in Edinburgh, Scotland on the market and this house is IMMACULATE.
The Harry Potter queen wanted more room for her kiddies to play and she's asking for $3.7 million.
It's okay though, because her new digs has a $250K Hogwarts playground!!!
Rowling's former palace is in a heavily exclusive neighborhood so potential buyers won't have to worry about any annoying
Check out the pics from J.K.'s former home (below)!

So much ripe-tomato red and bright, sunny yellow… GORGEOUS!
Back in April we gushed over the juicy filling of J.K. Rowling's post-Potter literary casserole, Casual Vacancy…
And now Miss Rowling has officially released the novel's cover art designed by Mario J. Pulice, and we vote YES YES YES on the final product!
We adore the vibrant simplicity, and the voting-ballot hint of what might be at the center of the book's inner mysteries…
Just stare at the book face (above) and let all that ominous cheerfulness absorb into your system so you'll be ready for the book's release THIS September 27th!
Potterheads, U onboard?
