Harry Potter Prequel?

So check this out. Apparently JKR wrote an 800 word prequel to sell at charity auction. Looks like it got a nice price for it too. Check out the link if you want to read it in it's entirety. Too bad JKR said there will be no other full stories coming from it.


So we've all heard of the butterbeer that they've concocted up over a the Hogsmeade theme park, but for the less fortunate of us who hasnt got to experience it, here are the "nutritional facts".

Horrible alternative book art

Emma watson ruins everything with butch haircut

 This is what has to say:

"Now that the "Harry Potter" saga is coming to an end, Emma Watson is taking some big steps to make a change in her life – starting with a new look.

The British actress took to her Facebook page on Thursday to debut her new pixie haircut that closely resembles actress Mia Farrow in "Rosemary's Baby."

"Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago," Watson, 20, wrote. "Feels incredible. I love it."

Given that her new ‘do is a drastic change from the long locks she sported for years as her "Potter" alter-ego Hermoine Granger, Watson said she took her time to make the decision to go short.

She added, "I've wanted to do this for years and years; it's the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like." "

Dark Horizons report on movie split

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly confirms that the splitting point between the two parts of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will take place later in the book than expected reports Hollywood News.
According to the mag, "Part I… will end at about Chapter 24 of the book, with Voldemort gaining possession of the Elder Wand". This comes later than expected as the book itself is 36 chapters long, making the cut off point at the end of the first film around the two-thirds mark of the story.
This would mean the second film opening next July would mostly consist of the Battle of Hogwarts, while the Gringotts break-in would likely kick off the film.
