J. K. Rowling Returning To The World Of Harry Potter

Abandon all cynicism those who enter here, because Warner Bros. has put the wizarding world back in motion. News is just in that J. K. Rowling is working on a new movie set in the world of Harry Potter , her first screenplay and a possible launchpad for a whole Potter-ish franchise. The film, which will be based on Rowling's (officially, Magizoologist Newt Scamander's ) universe-expanding Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them , will be set in the wizarding world. It will feature creatures and characters - some new, some already familiar to Potter fans - and, promises Rowling, will be "neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world" set 70 years before Harry Potter sets foot in Hogwarts. That puts it somewhere around 1921, when Scamander would have been about 24 according to in-world chronology. "It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning Fantastic Beasts into a film,"

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 Movie Review By: Beevers

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Movie Review By: Beevers Let me start this review by letting you all know that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I have read all the books and watched all the movies multiple times. So you can imagine how much I have been looking forward to this final film and also what high hopes I had for it. I was worried that I may be disappointed as I have been with other films lately. Let me just say that I had nothing to worry about! The film starts exactly were Part 1 left off. With Harry ( Daniel Radcliffe ) at the grave of Dobby and Lord Voldemort ( Ralph Fiennes ) having just taking the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's corpse. There is no recap of what has happened in Part 1 so you may want to watch it again before you go to refresh your memory. FYI- I have tried to stay as spoiler free as I can with this review. Harry, Ron ( Rupert Grint) , and Hermione ( Emma Watson ) resume their quest for the rest of the Horcruxes. After consider

The Making of Harry Potter Tour

Warner Bros will open its “ The Making of Harry Potter ” walking tour at Leavesden, England, the production base of the Harry Potter films , in spring next year. The three-hour-long tour will give fans the chance to see sets, costumes, props and effects used in all 8 Harry Potter movies. Tickets go on sale later this year. Potter fans will be able to walk onto sets including headmaster Dumbledore’s office and the 120ft long Great Hall featuring “the tables and benches used in the films”. The studio tour, first announced last November, is part of Warner Bros’ $161M refit of Leavesden, which is set to be one of the largest studio production facilities in Europe when it opens. Warner Bros plans to use the 250,000 sq ft of soundstages to shoot its blockbusters. The studio won’t be ready for Chris Nolan shooting The Dark Knight Rises this year though. Leavesden will also boast the largest back-lot in Europe. Around 1,500 people are employed at Leavesden when production is in full swin

J.K. Rowling Approved Death Changes In Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2

In a new interview with Cine Premiere Mexico, Andrew Ackland-Snow, the art director for the Harry Potter series, divulged new information which states that (with the approval of J.K. Rowling ) the death of Severus Snape has changed. "We wanted to change a bit where Snape dies. In the book, he dies on the Shrieking Shack, and we wanted to get him out from, not a conventional interior, but from that kind of box, to do it in a more dramatic atmosphere. We asked J.K. if she agreed for that to happen in there, because we hadn't really seen it before. We made a crystal house, and you can see what happens in the boat house from there - Are you listening Harry? -, but also the school is in flames...and she loved it. Besides, it's a very romantic place to die. Snape dies in a extremely good way, I gotta say." How, and if, this change will affect the film and plot has yet to be seen, but with J.K. Rowling's approval, and David Yates' track record, the change shouldn

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Pt 1 & 2 Will Be Different Films

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Pt 1 & 2 Will Be Different Films Daniel Radcliffe says Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will be much different than the penultimate installment in the epic franchise, which is now in theaters. "The last movie is going to be really, really fast-paced and a load of action in it, and it is like a war film," Radcliffe told Reuters. "If we had done this book in one film, the stuff that would have got cut is most of this film." However, it's Part 1 that the actor finds more appealing because it contains the most character development. Part 1, Radcliffe added, is "so sedate compared to what the next one is going to be like. The next film, because you've had all the plot set up already, you can just kind of enjoy the insanity of all the action." Radcliffe also said that the cast and crew felt a tremendous amount of pressure to get the final two films just right. As a result, some scenes were be

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One Premiere Photos

See The Common Trend Less then a week away from one of the most anticipated film of the year to hit theaters Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One is released.  As you can see the trend in these photos I could care less about the male stars. Emma Watson is the star to me. And if I went to see the movie it would be to see her on screen not that dam Harry Potter guy. These pictures were taken ate the London premiere last week. And according to Empire judging by the crowds last night in Leicester Square - some of which had camped out for three days in seriously unpleasant weather to be there- everyone's thrilled that we still have two films to go. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint led the cast, along with the likes of Helena Bonham-Carter (whose gleefully insane Bellatrix gets another stand-out scene this time around), Clemence Poesy and Katie Leung. Author JK Rowling also attended this penultimate party for the series, as well as David Yates and

Steven Spielberg's Vision Of Harry Potter "Let’s Make It Animated"

Steven Spielberg's Vision Of Harry Potter  "Let’s Make It Animated"   The first part of the final films for the Harry Potter franchise will be in theaters on November 19,2010.  Now  its time to bring out the promotion hype. Like this film is going to need any help selling out the first few days. I for one will not be in line to see the film. I have never been a huge Harry Potter fan since the first film came out. Speaking of the first movie, WB president Alan Horn revealed that he offered the first directing job to Steven Spielberg but Spielberg’s plans did not fit into what he was looking to turn the franchise into. Heyman sent the book to his friend and fellow Brit Lionel Wigram , a production executive at Warner Bros., to gauge the studio’s interest. Wigram said some in Burbank questioned the viability of the creaky fantasy-adventure genre and viewed the tale of a magical boarding school called Hogwarts as too British for the American heartland. “Don’t spend too
