   Rowling discusses Johnny Depp0 Comments

J. K. Rowling has posted onto her website her opinion on re-casting Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

  Accio Quote:
I’ve loved writing the first two screenplays and I can’t wait for fans to see ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’. I accept that there will be those who are not satisfied with our choice of actor in the title role. However, conscience isn’t governable by committee. Within the fictional world and outside it, we all have to do what we believe to be the right thing.

   Heyman teases information about Young Dumbledore0 Comments

David Heyman recently spoke to EW and discussed the role of young Dumbledore which will be portrayed by Jude Law.

  Accio Quote:
This younger Albus Dumbledore’s long hair and beard were auburn. Having reached their side of the street, he strode off along the pavement, drawing many curious glances due to the flamboyantly cut suit of plum velvet that he was wearing.

  Accio Quote:
One of the reasons we chose Jude is he has many of the qualities we find in Dumbeldore in the Potter films. He’s got authority, he’s got a twinkle in his eye, he’s sometimes a bit elliptical. So you have that but also have this youthful energy and jubilance. So he brings that twinkle, mischief, authority, and power, but at the same time brings far more youthful energy to the film. You understand why he would be your favorite teacher and be someone you believe is an extraordinary wizard.

   Walters given new title from the Queen0 Comments

Various media outlets are reporting how Julie Walters has been named Dame Commander of the British Empire by the Queen in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace last week.

  Accio Quote:
I looked at the envelope and thought, ‘ER – what’s that all about?’ I thought it must be something from my MP – I’m always writing to him. But no, it was from the honors committee. All this highfalutin language, all these convoluted sentences… I’m reading it wondering what’s going on here; then finally I saw the word ‘Dame.’ I shouted to my husband, ‘Grant, my God, I’ve been made a Dame. Get down on your knees this instant.’
