Hogwarts Legacy is an Upcoming PS5 game that every Harry Potter fan has been hoping for! Warner Bros. Interactive and Avalanche Games collaborated to make this fantasy come true!
Welcome back, Couch Commandos! You know the drill. We’re here to talk about the latest MCU joint: THE ETERNALS. Once again, I stand my ground while my co-hosts are less forgiving of this Marvel entry. Click on in and enjoy!
The company behind a Harry Potter board game, Catch The Snitch, pulled the plug on its crowdfunding campaign abruptly and without warning today. No, it has nothing to do with Her TERFness, but that would at least be a valid excuse. Their publicly stated reason is a bit…weird.
Like death and taxes, trailers at San Diego Comic Con is inevitable. WB Pictures didn’t disappoint at their panel by showing four trailers for four highly anticipated films. However they have a lot of work to do to win back DC fans after the streak of mixed DCEU films.
The Harry Potter universe expanded last year with the arrival of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The film followed future famed author Newt Scamander as he tried to not only reclaim his lost magical creatures, but also, stop an act of evil in 1927 New York.
Fantastic Beasts: Cases From The Wizarding World, the free-to-play mobile game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, developed by Mediatonic, is available worldwide for download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play for Android devices. According to the developers, players will get to:
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is the beginning of a new series of films to be set in the Harry Potter universe. Set 70+ years before the events of those stories, we find new characters to connect to, and new threats to worry about. It’s fascinating to note that the only “basis” for this film is the fact that the title of the movie was a schoolbook in the Harry Potter universe. Furthermore, J.K. Rowling herself wrote the screenplay for this film, as there was no book to adapt it from. What results, is a mixed bag film that you’ll have to determine whether it lives up to the Harry Potter legacy.
fantastic Beasts had a pretty good debut last weekend at the box office, and though it likely won’t be in 1st place this weekend due to new release Moana, it’s projected to still do pretty well. As such, talk of the sequel is pretty much underway. As stated previously, the sequel, and the movies the follow will be focusing on not only Newt Scamander, but also the legendary duel between Albus Dumbledore and the dark wizard Gridenwald. The latter has been cast in the form of Johnny Depp, but the former hasn’t been cast yet. One British star has thrown his hat into the ring for potentially playing him.
Warner Bros. made buckets of money from Harry Potter movies during the 2000’s. Now all their past work is only good for cycling repeatedly on Freeform, and to say they’ve had difficulties establishing a new franchise since then is putting it mildly. You can imagine how relieved they felt upon hearing about a new play opening in England — one that takes Harry’s story into new chapters, chapters ripe for adaptation. Forget constantly shooting themselves in the foot with bad DC movies (though they’ll still be doing more of that) — Harry is coming back to save the studio!
Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi, Willow, Harry Potter) will be one of a number of stars in attendance for this weekend’s MCM Birmingham Comic Con, running from 19th-20th March at The NEC.
Despite the series being long done, the main one anyway, in both books and movies, there are still plenty of mysteries and fan-theories circling the iconic Harry Potter series. One debate concerns one of the more heartfelt moments, where it was revealed that Harry Potter named his son was named after both Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.
When you do a series of films, especially when it’s one where the character is aging, the actors and actresses always try and put some more depth and feeling into their roles as they are evolving with their characters. For Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, he admitted in an interview with Playboy (via Entertainment Weekly) that he felt he did a good job in the first five Harry Potter films, but then faltered greatly in the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
