   Potter audiobooks now on Audible0 Comments

Business Wire is reporting that the Harry Potter audiobooks are now available online through Audible.

Before, the audiobooks were only available to purchase online via Pottermore.

  Accio Quote:
We are thrilled to offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy the Harry Potter audio catalog seamlessly through the Audible service. J.K. Rowling’s celebrated series is firmly entrenched in the literary pantheon, but when the first Harry Potter novel was released in 1997, smartphones were yet to become the ubiquitous listening devices they are today. Now fans of this trailblazing series have an effortless and affordable way to enjoy them in audio.

The breathtaking performances of Jim Dale, Stephen Fry and Felix von Manteuffel transform Harry Potter’s adventures into immersive and truly transporting new experiences—even for those who have already read the novels. We look forward to bringing more listeners to this richly imagined universe.

   Perlman reveals new information about FB0 Comments

The Telegram spoke to Ron Perlman at the recent ComicCon in Providence, Rhode Island, America.

New information about his role in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was revealed.

  Accio Quote:
The movie takes place in 1914 Manhattan with Newt Scamander, who’s this magician who comes to New York to buy the girl he’s trying to win over a little exotic gift, and he gets caught up with this thing and he comes to my nightclub. I’m a gangster who owns a speakeasy. He comes to my nightclub to get information and so I have this one scene in the movie with Newt and his friends. Newt is played by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, who was in “The Theory of Everything” … And I steal the movie. I’m like the Donald Trump of acting. My acting is so good. You’re not going to believe how good it is.

How exciting!

   Radcliffe hopes Redmayne is enjoying "Fantastic Beasts"0 Comments

E! Online recently spoke to Daniel Radcliffe to promote his movie Victor Frankenstein.

Asked about giving Eddie Redmayne any advice on the Potter franchise, he stated:

  Accio Quote:
No, I don’t think he needs advice, just like enjoy it.

I don’t think there’s anything to live up to as well, especially in a way because it’s not like there’s original source material which is a very strong narrative. You know the Fantastic Beasts book is really cool…I hope he’s just enjoying it.
