“changed my life forever.”

“No shield here – crest. I mean all that came in the later editions. This one’s a bit wonky but you get the idea.”

“Perhaps Hufflepuff house would have the respect it deserves from fans if I’d stayed with my original idea of a bear to represent it?”

“Harry Potter rolled over inside his blankets without waking”

J.K Rowling

“was invented in small hotel in Manchester after a row with my then boyfriend. I had been pondering the things that hold a society together, cause it to congregate and signify its particular character and knew I need a sport. It infuriates men, in my experience (why is the snitch so valuable etc), which is quite satisfying given my state of mind when I invented it.”

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn talk Quidditch for their new film

If you haven’t seen the trailer for The Internship yet, you should see it on the film’s IMDb page, because it’s a rather humorous trailer.  The movie is about two old-fashioned salesmen who lose their jobs and in a desperate attempt to propel themselves into the digital age find themselves applying for- and getting- internships at Google.

In one scene they find themselves playing Muggle Quidditch which, as we know, is a budding sport. You can watch the clip here. (Sorry for the inconvenience- the clip refused to embed. Warning: Contains mild language and sexual references)

And in this interview with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn with Collider.com, they talk playing Quidditch with the interns (Sorry, this one wouldn’t work, either!)

Sorry for the lack of videos (just follow the links to view), but here’s a picture!

The Internship is rated PG-13, but was originally rated R, so view at you own discretion!

The artist, whose stunning Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone art has been well received, has revealed his latest addition to the series.

Scholastic announced earlier in the year that the company was going to release brand new editions of the entire Harry Potter saga that are poised to hit the store shelves in August. The company has been generating significant buzz surrounding the cover art created by award winning artist Kazu Kibuishi. Today at Book Expo America, the artist and Ellie Berger, President of Scholastic Trade Publishing, Arthur A. Levine unveiled the new cover art.

The new cover for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets features the flying car that Harry and Ron rode to Hogwarts. In the background is the Weasley family home and many people are considering this art to be the best ever done for the franchise. Subsequent cover art will be revealed during the next few months for the remainder of the books.
