JK Rowling's latest entry into the saga of everyone's favorite wizard, a play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, takes place 19 years after we last left The Boy Who Lived. According to the newly released synopsis, things aren't totally happily ever after for Harry and his family:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

The play is being presented in two parts, which Rowling assures will make sense once you've seen it: "The story only exists because the right group of people came together with a brilliant idea about how to present Harry Potter on stage. I’m confident that when audiences see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child they will understand why we chose to tell this story in this way."

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.

Harry Potter fans can't really give the shirts off their backs to help a house elf, but they're getting close.

Dobby the house elf from the wizarding series of books has his own display in the Warner Bros. Studio tour, featuring him encased in glass, with his eyes closed for some reason.



Well intrepid, altruistic people saw a chance to free the little guy.

Vulture noticed the pictures and wrote about the impromptu jail break

Friends of the house elf have festooned one of his exhibit cases with their socks, a nod to both Dobby's HP story line, as well as the fact that house elves are granted independence if they are given an item of clothing.



J.K. Rowling retweeted the initial mention, because she has a Twitter problem, and the idea began to spread.



So, basically, if you go on the Warner Bros. Studio tour and it smells bad, you know why.
