Harry Potter looks for Platform 9 3/4 at Penn Station!

This is an absolutely hilarious video for any Harry Potter fan, which we found on the Huffington Post. This will be especially funny for New Yorkers, who are familiar with Penn Station and probably wish it looked a little more like King’s Cross Station!

That kid has great poise — and he’s very quick on his feet when the guy asks him about his parents. If you saw that happening in front of you, what would you do?

HARRY POTTER Fantastic Beasts spin-off series will have accompanying video games

Not only have new Potter movies been announced, but the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series will be available on multiple interactive platforms.

Video games based on the popular Harry Potter films were developed and published by Electronic Arts. It is unclear if Warner Bros. will develop the new Fantastic Beasts games internally through its Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment label or license them out.

No release date for the theatrical release of the first Fantastic Beasts movie was announced, nor were details regarding platforms for the tie-in games.

It’s early days yet, but based on the hype surrounding the films, game companies will be eager to get the rights for any Potter-themed project.

Delirium Quiz: How unhealthily in love are you?

We launched an exciting new fandom quiz on our Delirium site today, which should have plenty of cross-fandom appeal. In fact, we’re going to show you how it can relate specifically to Harry Potter!

The quiz centers on two questions. 1) How bad is your deliria? and 2) Does your love interest REALLY love you back? Since we encourage you to have as much fun as possible with this (and it asks you to enter your name and the name of your love interest), we recommend you try your luck with some Harry Potter characters. In fact, Lavender Brown just took it, and here are her results:

Well, Lavender seems to really have it out for Ron.

It’s your turn. Take the quiz HERE!

P.S. Apparently, it looks like Bella Swan just took it, too:

We’ll be announcing the prizes and how you can enter each one as well as some news from our various fandoms.

Then we’ll get into discussing what’s going on in some of our busy fandoms, including movie news for some (Divergent, The Maze Runner, The Mortal Instruments, Ender’s Game, Percy Jackson) as well as TV and book news for others (Harry Potter, Delirium, Game of Thrones).

And we’re going to talk about some events that are or will be taking place in the very near future, so we hope you can join us tonight at 7:30pm ET/4:30pm PT.

Harry Potter ‘Pez’ dispensers on the horizon

The popular collectible candy holders will soon be featuring our favorite Potter characters.

“I’ll give you one for 2015,” speaking about which new Pez dispensers are on the horizon. “It’s taken me about five years to get it. And that’s Harry Potter.”  He didn’t detail what it would look like only that “JK Rowling definitely will be involved.”

It typically takes about a year and a half and lots of planning to bring the 6.5 inch dispensers to life. From Mickey Mouse to Santa Claus and Darth Vader in between, the list of larger-than-life characters immortalized by the company is long.

Vittoria says they’ve already begun designing the Harry Potter dispensers.  Like other limited-edition sets, all 250,000 of the dispensers designed like the boy wizard will be numbered.

Harry Potter Annotated Edition Up For Auction By J.K. Rowling

Have you ever wondered what goes through an author’s mind while they write a book? You can now find out J.K. Rowling’s thoughts while she was writing “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”.

The book contains Rowling’s handwritten thoughts and commentary about the book and the film adaptation, as well as 22 hand-drawn illustrations including one of a sleeping baby Harry and another of Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” was first published in 1997, and is the rarest of the series as only 500 copies were printed.

The book is one of many being put up for the English PEN Organization charity auction. The auction, to be held at Sotheby’s, is expected even more than another 1st edition of the book that sold in October 2007 for over 19,700 pounds ($29,878 USD).

Thanks to Piya Sinha-Roy at Reuters.com for alerting us of the auction! What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below!
