Harry Potter Vinyl Soundtrack Set

Though vinyl is now enjoying quite a resurgence among music fans as a popular format for listening to music, during most of the time that the Harry Potter franchise was hitting theaters, it was an almost entirely dead form of media. That means most of the soundtracks for each of the movies never got released on vinyl. But that’s about to change.

Rhino has announced a new Harry Potter box set that will include the scores from the first five films in the franchise on vinyl for the first time ever. Find out more about the Harry Potter vinyl soundtrack set coming in November. Read More »

‘Gigantic’ Canceled By Disney Animation

Disney - Gigantic

It’s not often that you see a movie studio like Disney cancel a big budget animated film this far into production, but it happens. Gigantic, Walt Disney Animation’s take on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale (in which Jack befriends a female giant), is no longer on the way.

The project was first announced in 2015 and has had a troubled road to the big screen, having been delayed twice on the release calendar. Inside Out writer Meg LeFauve was brought on board as co-director to help rework the movie, but apparently the story was not up to Disney’s quality standards. Why was Gigantic canceled?

Harry Potter House for Sale

If you ever wanted to grow up to be a wizard like Harry Potter, you can get one step closer by purchasing the house where The Boy Who Lived was raised briefly before his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort.

Game of Thrones Final Season Release Date

The night is long and full of hiatuses. Game of Thrones season 8 will finally wrap up HBO’s epic fantasy series, and although the episode order is shorter, the break between this year’s 7th season and the final season is much, much longer. Because of the length of the six final episodes, and the recently revealed shooting schedules for the cast members, it looks like we won’t get Game of Thrones season 8 until 2019.

But some good news: The cast members of Game of Thrones have already received their scripts, and will begin shooting the final six episodes quite soon. So while we have to wait at least a year and a half for HBO to air the finished product on television, we can at least spend the time diligently stalking the cast and crew’s social media and set pictures.

fantastic beasts 2 cast

Joining the hunt for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is former Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, as well as a bevy of other new and familiar characters from Harry Potter lore. One of those familiar characters: the renowned Nicolas Flamel, whose Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone formed the basis for the first Harry Potter book and movie. Now we’ll get to see him as a young and strapping wizard, and hopefully better for the wear than Johnny Depp‘s evil Grindelwald, whose terrorizing presence will be even bigger in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

Pottermore has dropped a bunch of new information about the Fantastic Beasts 2 cast and characters, as well as a rudimentary synopsis of the film.
