Butterbeer is available at every corner pub within the wizarding world, but it’s been considerably more difficult to find in the Muggle realm. For the past few years our only real option has been try and replicate it at home, or to pick up an officially licensed tankard at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando.
However, one non-magical establishment has finally figured out a way to make butterbeer as accessible to Muggles as it is to any pureblood. Starbucks has quietly begun offering the drink on its “secret menu,” though you have to know exactly what to say in order to get it. Hit the jump to get the details.

Warner Bros. recently announced J.K. Rowling is writing a new movie based in the world of Harry Potter. It’s called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and will be set several decades before Potter’s story begins. One would assume, then, actor Daniel Radcliffe would not be appearing in the films. That doesn’t stop people from asking him about it, though, and Radcliffe revealed he’s thought about how his character could return. Read More »

This month’s news Warner Bros. would be making more Harry Potter movies was both surprising and expected. The expectation came from the fact the Potter franchise has grossed billions for the company and anyway to continue that would make sense. The surprise came from exactly how it was going to happen. J.K Rowling herself would be adapting a smaller, spin-off book she wrote in 2001 called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Originally conceived as a textbook Harry Potter owned at Hogwarts, Rowling’s new film will be set in the magical world, decades before Potter is born.
In recent weeks, Warner Bros. has trademarked “Fantastic Beasts” for every imaginable thing under the sun which, again, is expected. But the surprise is they’ve done the same for two other Potter spin-off books, suggesting they’re possibly looking at film adaptations down the road. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Most of the time, art galleries do either group shows with a single theme or one artist’s complete vision. The latest exhibit at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles is a bit of both. The Young Guns of Print features the work of 18 individual up and coming artists, each of whom did two to fifteen pieces on a specific theme. That means instead of one cool piece for a film or filmmaker you like, you get multiple takes by artists who are still being established. Some examples of theme are superheroes, Tim Burton; the guns of Harrison Ford; Los Angeles; Harry Potter; and Lord of the Rings.
The exhibit opens Friday September 20 in Los Angeles and will go online Saturday September 21. Below, check out a sampling of work including an amazing series of Cloud Atlas posters by Paul Shipper. Read More »
