Written by JK Rowling herself and set 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter series (insert broken sobs here), the movie adaptation of Fantastic Beasts will be an original story inspired by the Potterverse textbook of the same name. In a press release from Warner Bros, Rowling said,

It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of 'Fantastic Beasts,' realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.

As I considered Warners' proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn't dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.

Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway.

Fantastic Beasts is also slated to be developed into other media, including a video game.

Photographer Ryan Astamendi's Disney Princesses are about as realistic as they come. Princess Jasmine looks exactly how I imagined I did when I dressed up as her for Halloween (I was seven, and I was not a very good Jasmine).

About a year ago, Marvel announced its movie schedule for the next five years, but it looks like it's time to update that schedule. A sequel to Marvel's smallest film (pun intended) to date, Ant-Man, is officially on the books. Called Ant-Man and The Wasp, this super dup starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will take over Black Panther's slot on July 6th, 2018.

Marvel seems to be sticking pretty hard to the "no more than three movies a year" rule moving Black Panther up to February 16th 2018, and Captain Marvel back to March 8th, 2019. Marvel's first female solo superhero, Captain Marvel has had her debut movie pushed back twice now, the first time occurring when Spider-Man came home to Marvel.

Marvel also announced three dates for movies in 2020 which is most likely the beginning of Phase 4. May 1st, July 10th, and November 6th will be the first Marvel movies of next decade. (Prediction: Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Blade 4)

The Official Marvel Schedule (As of October 2015)

  • 5/6/2016 - Captain America: Civil War
  • 11/4/2016 - Doctor Strange
  • 5/5/2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
  • 7/28/2017 - Spider-Man
  • 11/3/2017 - Thor: Ragnarok
  • 2/16/2018 - Black Panther
  • 5/4/2018 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 1
  • 7/6/2018 - Ant-Man and The Wasp
  • 3/8/2019 - Captain Marvel
  • 5/3/2019 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 2
  • 7/12/2019 - Inhumans
  • 5/1/2020 - Unknown
  • 7/10/2020 - Unknown
  • 11/6/2020 - Unknown

Add in another 4-5 movies a year from X-Men/DC and you'll get a sense of where all your money is going over the next five years. Hope you like Superheroes!

Sit back and watch this magical, wonderful thing.

Fans Joan Kamberaj and Peter Heacock animated this beautiful short film, which shows Hogwarts being built out of folded paper from The Prisoner of Azkaban.

It's a loving tribute that, according to the description, took them a great deal of work.

We are huge fans JK Rowling. So much so, that we built Hogwarts from the pages of "Prisoner of Azkaban". Frame by frame, and over one month of work, we are proud to share our first short film with all of you.

Brb. Going to King's Cross, platform 9 and 3/4.

Manehatten really does something to Rarity. Too bad this doesn't do anything for Applejack.
