Pottermore introduces new Fantastic Beasts

//Por Aline Michel - Wednesday, 15 de March de 2017 às 17:01

To celebrate the new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Pottermore, the digital heart of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, released the concept art of six creatures featured on the book.

One of them, already familiar to the fans who have watched the film in November, is the Thunderbird. In Andy Singleton’s hands, it got an illustration that imitates 3D paper:

“The Thunderbird is known for its majestic appearance and the power to create storms as it flies. Here, the storm has been realised through layers of paper, and you can make out the bird’s multiple wings.”

To meet the Hidebehind, the Horned Serpent, the Wampus Cat, the Snallygaster and the Hodag, go to Pottermore!

The new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as the audio book narrated by Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), are already on sale on Pottermore’s online shop.

J.K. Rowling announces title of Cormoran Strike’s fourth book

//Por Rodrigo Cavalheiro - Tuesday, 14 de March de 2017 às 11:01

J.K. Rowling reavealed on Tuesday (14) the title of the fourth book of The Cormoran Strike series, written under the pseudonymn of Robert Galbraith. Lethal White came to the public through a game on Twitter: when a follower asked for a hint on the next book’s title, the author started a “hangman game”.

Amongst many funny suggestions, we found “Eighth Child“, “Goth Chain”, “Python Shame“, “Mighty Thumb“, “Washed RhinoandWoohoo, Chips!”.

To the user who got it right, Rowling promised an autographed copy when she finishes the book – currently, she’s writing chapter 23.

If you still haven’t read the previous books – Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm and Career of Evil -, run! Besides the fourth novel, a TV adaptation for BBC is on its way!

Pottermore publishes new Marauders concept art

//Por Aline Michel - Sunday, 12 de March de 2017 às 18:46

Pottermore published this week new concept artwork of the Marauders on their younger days.

The abstract portraits by Montse Bernal, a portrait expert, tell an elaborate story and exposes the Marauders’ intimate lives.

The illustrations can be found bellow:

Remus Lupin – Moony

“Remus’s life was haunted by the shadow of his second life as a werewolf. Just like his Boggart, his portrait would not be complete without an ominous full moon, reflecting his deepest fear”

Peter Pettigrew – Wormtail

“Did any Marauder go quite as dark as Peter Pettigrew? His portrait is very telling, showing his rat-like front teeth and a ill-omened hand from his shady future”

Sirius Black – Padfoot

“It’s no surprise to see teenage Sirius Black with a shaggy mop top, and his Animagus dog form prowling around. A closer inspection of this sketch warns of a far more enclosed life”

James Potter – Prongs

“Harry really is the spitting image of his father. Good to know that messy hair and stag Patronuses run in the Potter family”

First look of Forbidden Forest at Studio Tour London

//Por Caroline Dorigon - Friday, 10 de March de 2017 às 23:47

The actors Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) and James & Oliver Phelps (Fred & George) presented, last Thursday, 9, a sneak peek of the new Forbidden Forest expansion at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.

The Forest is receiving the last details to ensure everything will be ready for the opening on March 31. Getting into the incredible Hogwarts Gates, visitors will explore the deep inside the forest, with enormous trees, and walk beneath giant entwined roots.

Evanna Lynch said:

“It’s so exciting to step in to the Forbidden Forest again; Production Designer Stuart Craig has perfectly recreated the mysterious and sometimes menacing atmosphere we all felt during filming in the ‘off-limits’ location. Being inside the forest surrounded by magical creatures always felt like a safe place for my character, Luna, so it’s amazing to be back.”

The Forbiden Forest is a home for several creatures and well known by Hagrid, the beloved professor of Care of Magical Creatures. One of his costumes will be displayed, with a lantern on his hand, to welcome the visitors at the Hogwarts Gates. The visitors will be able to control the weather using the same techniques used during the films.

Among the trees, the visitors will meet a full-size Buckbeak and be able to bow to it. They will see details and tecniques used to create the Hippogriff very closely. Entering deeper in the forest, the visitors will be face-to-face with Aragog. It will show up from its cave and appear before the visitors, with its family.

Sarah Roots, senior vice president, commented:

“ “We are so excited to launch the Forbidden Forest expansion of the Studio Tour, especially on the fifth anniversary of our grand opening. It’s great to be working with so many of the original filmmakers who know so much about the wizarding world. There will be an opportunity to take control of the weather and discover the techniques used to create a realistic forest within a film. We can’t wait to let visitors step into this mysterious set and discover all this amazing detail for themselves.”.

Stuart Craig completed:

“Over the course of the eight films, the Forbidden Forest has played a key role and I think it’s an exciting addition to the Studio Tour. The Forbidden Forest is full of mysterious, fascinating and sometimes threatening forces. It represents the great unknown compared to the comfort and safety of Hogwarts and the Gryffindor Common Room which makes it so interesting and important to the development of the story.”

The official openning of The Forbidden Forest will be on March 31 and its entrance will be included in the ticket price.

//Por Aline Michel - Thursday, 09 de March de 2017 às 18:07

Yesterday, Robert Galbraith’s official Twitter account published pictures from the set of The Silkworm.

The photos show a few props that will be used by the actors in the series. On the first picture we see a note, perhaps written by Strike. We also see a wallet, a notebook with a post it and the name “Leonora” written repeatedly. On the last picture we see an envelope with the plot’s manuscript.

The TV series based on the books by Robert Galbraith, J.K. Rowling’s alias, is being produced by HBO and BBC. The Cuckoo’s Calling will be three hours long, while The Silkworm and Career of Evil will last two hours each. Stay tuned on Potterish for more news!

Emma Watson talks about Harry Potter and reveals cast’s WhatsApp group chat

//Por Ana Beatriz Fontes - Tuesday, 07 de March de 2017 às 18:52

In interview to Entertainment Tonight, Emma Watson revealed the existence of a group WhatsApp for the main cast of Harry Potter. She also tells she used the group chat to invite the actors to watch Beauty and The Beast, in which she stars.

Emma says she feels supported by her former co-workers. They keep in touch through the group chat and, even with complicated schedules, the actors who play Neville (Matthew Lewis) and Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) managed to attend to a Beauty and The Beast screening with the film’s star.

The actress joked about how trying to reunite the Harry Potter cast is like catching Pokémon. She’s trying to meet up with Bonnie Wright and Daniel Radcliffe, forever our Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter. It’s complicated, though, since the actors are spread around the world.

Emma also talked about the series on Jimmy Kimmel, where she watched a backstage footage of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It was a scene featuring Harry, Ron and Hermione. In it, while the other actors speak, Emma repeats the lines under her breath.

You laugh, but this is actually quite traumatic for me, because I created issues because of this” Emma jokes with Kimmel “I would ruin takes. [Director] Chris would be likeCut! Emma, you’re doing it again. You’re mouthing Dan’s linesand I’d be like ‘oh, I’m sorry, I’m so sorry! Oh, I feel so bad‘. But, like, I couldn’t help myself. I was such a loser. I really loved those books, I really wanted to do my job well, and I kind of overdid it”, she says.

Directed by Bill Condon, Beauty and The Beast premieres on March 17, and besides Emma Watson, it counts with big names such as Emma Thompson and Ian McKellen.
