Warner Brothers trademarks HARRY POTTER Quidditch

What does Warner Bros have planned? It looks like they are setting certain Harry Potter projects aside.

Warner Bros. is cooking up something big for their Harry Potter franchise. They definitely aren’t done with it. On top of the spinoff Potter movie being written by J.K. Rowling, based on her faux textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the studio has locked in some more trademarks that hint at some other films and forms of entertainment we might see for the franchise. One of which might lead to a sports movie that centers on Quidditch, which would be awesome! According to Bleeding Cool the registered trademarks include…

The other spinoff mini-book Quidditch Through The Ages.

The Quidditch teams Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels.

The Quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp, and fictitious author of Quidditch Through The Ages.

Newt Scamander, the fictitious author of Fantastic Beasts.

The Potter book-within-a-book Tales Of Beedle The Bard.

Are you intrigued by what some are speculating to be a Quidditch movie?

J.K. Rowling to have full screenplay rights for HARRY POTTER spin-off

Fear no more, Potterheads. 

According to THR, Rowling will write the screenplay for the first film all herself, and if WB wants another screenwriter to rewrite it, Rowling will have to approve the process.

As for the rest of the films in the series, Rowling will have script approval, so even if she is not writing the film herself, she will ultimately dictate the direction in which the series goes.

It seems that Rowling’s full vision will be realized for this film series.

Diagon Alley now viewable through Google Street View

If you’ve ever wanted to take a tour of the iconic wizarding shopping center, now’s your chance.

Google has added the film set of Diagon Alley to its Street View mode, enabling internet users to take a stroll down its cobbled streets and a 360 degree glance around, taking in famous landmarks such as Ollivanders Wand Shop and the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes joke shop.

The photos are actually taken from the Warners Brothers film set. The technology in Google Street View is very easy to use, and it’s a very cool interactive experience, which you can check out here.

Emma Watson’s shoe collection (of supposedly only eight pairs) is worth £14000

Emma Watson claims to have only 8 pairs of shoes. But they come to an amazing amount of £14000!


Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, who is frequently pictured sashaying down red carpets in a variety of towering stilettos, has claimed she owns only eight pairs of shoes.

Given that she has a £24  million fortune and luxury homes in London, New York and France, such parsimonious behaviour beggars belief.

Ms Watson, who often tops the best-dressed lists in fashion magazines, made the claim in an interview published this week about her new film “The Bling Ring”, in which she plays one of a real-life gang of thieves who raided celebrities’ homes for their designer clothes.

Read more on the story and look at the pictures of some of her shoes!

Emma Watson could play leading role in fantasy series

While the trilogy series “Queen of the Tearling” hasn’t been released yet, Emma Watson’s name has already been attached to the probable movie adaptation. It would be the starlet’s first leading role since Harry Potter.

Variety reports that the book features a 19-year-old female protagonist, and “is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power.”  Johansen was partly inspired by a 2007 speech from Barack Obama.  I guess I missed his “malevolent Red Queen” speech.  The books are reportedly a “female Game of Thrones“, which is an odd description since Game of Thrones has plenty of interesting female characters.  Harper Collins will begin releasing the Queen of the Tearling books starting next year.


Personally, I’d love to see Emma in another strong, female role in a YA movie adaptation. What about you?

“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?”

Drawing of sleeping baby Harry

“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.”

Tom Felton on TV: ‘Murder In The First’

The Potter actor will play Erich Blunt, a conceited, rich CEO of a tech company.

According to Deadline, the 25-year-old Harry Potter actor has joined the cast of TNT’s drama pilot Murder In The First as a series regular.

The show is a murder mystery that centers on San Francisco PD homicide detectives Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they take on a case that seems more like a maze.
