   Lewis gets engaged0 Comments

TMZ is reporting that Matthew Lewis has got engaged to his girlfriend, Angela Jones.


  Accio Quote:
Lewis popped the question to Angela Jones last month, and she said yes to being his real-life Hannah Abbott. We're told Angela's an event planner at Universal Studios in Orlando, which is where she met Matt ... at a Wizarding World event in January.

The engagement went down in Paris -- très romantique.

This will be Matt's first marriage, and Angela's second. BTW, she just got divorced in July.

   "Cursed Child" to arrive on Broadway in 2018!0 Comments

Pottermore has announced that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender are in advanced talks for the show to open in New York.

Discussion could see the play open at the Lyric Theatre in the spring of 2018.


  Accio Quote:
When the redesigned Lyric was presented to us as an idea and what the possibilities could be, we re-thought the whole thing and totally fell in love with the notion of a theatre being created especially for the Cursed Child, overseen by designer Christine and our director John Tiffany.

We are still subject to planning, but assuming we get the go ahead, we will have the theatre of our dreams that will be intimate enough for a drama, yet big enough for us to follow in the footsteps of the London production and continue to provide low priced tickets throughout the auditorium.

   "Fantastic Beasts" brings in $500m!0 Comments

Forbes is reporting that the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie has made $500 million worldwide in two weeks.


  Accio Quote:
With $161 million domestic, it is already the ninth-biggest domestic release of 2016.

f one wants to be a kill joy, one could point out that it will still probably end up as the lowest-grossing J.K. Rowling entry thus far, as (not even accounting for inflation) the $797m worldwide total of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is potentially out-of-reach.

   Lynch discusses Luna Lovegood0 Comments

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Evanna Lynch discusses the importance of being Luna Lovegood.


  Accio Quote:
Clearly, Lynch takes her Potter seriously and to heart. She’s a big fan of the books — seemingly one of the biggest on set — and that very much affected the way she saw Luna. “It was more than just a job to me. It was so precious,” she says. “She’s such an important person to me. She’s helped me through so much that I felt I just wanted to protect her spirit and preserve her spirit. There are so many actors, and not that this is a bad thing, but it will just be an email sent to their inbox and they’ll be like, ‘Okay, I’ll try on this person for today,’ and for me it was just so much more.”
