daily prophet sheets

Muggle newspapers might be going the way of the dinosaur, but the Daily Prophet is still the preferred news source for the British wizarding community. Apparently, they’re expanding their offerings to include a Harry Potter Daily Prophet sheet set edition for wizards that like to read in bed. It comes with one flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two pillowcases.

Check out an close-up of the design after the break…

Two years ago, J.K. Rowling announced that a Harry Potter stageplay was in the works that was based on “the previously untold story of Harry Potter’s early years as an orphan and outcast”.

Well, forget about all that. ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ is actually a sequel described as “the eighth Harry Potter story”:

Holy crap! More info after the break…

Artist Isaiah K. Stephens imagined Hogwarts full of Disney characters for Cosmo and I just wish this was a real thing. Would Elsa be sorted into Ravenclaw or Slitherin? What would Ariel and Mulan’s patronus look like? With princesses and villains both making appearances, this series is just delightful.

The folks at unPOP spent over a month making a very elaborate and very clever stop-motion animated short as a tribute to J.K. Rowling and the world of Harry Potter.

In the short titled “Hogwarts”, a young boy stays up late reading The Prisoner of Azkaban, but after he falls asleep, the pages literally come to life and transform into the magical school.

Watch the charming video after the break.

Fans of Harry Potter are leaving heartfelt notes hidden within book pages for future fans to read. #PotterItForward, a campaign started by MuggleNet, encourages current fans to share what the series truly means to them and how it’s changed their lives.

It’s a wonderful way to help inspire new fans and to let them know that they will always have friends in Hogwarts.

A middle school special education teacher went all in with Harry Potter this year and it sounds like her class is going to be super fun. She explains on a reddit thread:

“I plan to implement fun activities as we go along in the book (one chapter per week). For example, when Harry gets his wand, we will make wands in my classroom. When they get sorted in the book, we will get sorted in real life. It’ll be fun activities so it’s not just another boring core class.”

Every square inch of her classroom is decorated and it’s as close to Hogwarts as most students will ever get. Check out all the wonderful images after the break.

The day your acceptance letter arrives from Hogwarts is monumental. You’re on your way to an amazing, wondrous place that will give you a top notch wizarding education. But what about the tuition fee? Do wizards spend decades under crippling debt like us muggles?

According to an estimate by Mic, it would cost $43,031 plus another $1,031 for supplies.

However, J.K. Rowling chimed in on the matter saying that a Hogwarts education is free thanks to the Ministry of Magic (save for wands, robes and books of course).

So it’s free AND you learn a skill that you can actually use. Maybe I can still attend and learn enough magic to erase my student loans and/or the four years I wasted.

Daniel Radcliffe may have been a brilliant wizard in Harry Potter, but he’s a lousy receptionist in real life. The actor spent an hour manning the desk at Nylon Magazine and he was hilariously terrible. He has no idea how to use the phone, doesn’t know which packages are for which couriers, and barely manages to find one poor woman the key to the restroom. There must be some sort of spell for that.

Are you sad that you never got a letter from Hogwarts? Silly, you were there along with J.K. Rowling and all the rest of us. Did you forget? Perhaps you were under the influence of magic.

If you don’t believe me then check out the tweets from J.K. herself after the break where she explains how we were once all classmates in Hogwarts’ hallowed halls.
