Today Pottermore has rolled out a major update. Rather than adding new features, such as chapters from Deathly Hallows (the only book on the site yet to be released) or the long-teased Patronus test, this updates has removed features. These features include the Pottermore Insider blog, commenting features, the ability to upload fan art, and the ability to update your status. According to the new site update page, these features were removed because they were "no longer properly serving the interests of our users" and claims that it had become impossible to monitor comments and drawings and still insure the safety and privacy of all users. These somewhat radical changes, which were done without prior warning, were noted to have been approved…Read more >
Today I came to the realization that there is obviously a correlation between the Marauders and the main characters in the canon books.
Obviously, Harry is James "Prongs" Potter. No need to explain the connection to you (I hope).
Next, we have Sirius "Padfoot" Black. Who could possibly be the slightly mischievous best friend to our Potter? Answer: Ronald Weasley, a.k.a. Ron "red head arachnophobic" Weasley, best friend of our Harry Potter. The connection is nearly as obvious as Harry is to James.
Next, we move on to Remus "Moony" Lupin, a.k.a. the smartest student in the Marauders generation, best friends to the mischievous best friends Padfoot & Prongs. And who fits that description perfectly? Miss Hermione Granger herself.
These three main c…Read more >

Yesterday was full of sadness and a bit of desperation to me. I'm not kidding because I'm just telling the truh, really. I don't want to mention that TRAGEDY again but...um... I still gained new experiences and events. Some poeple might think that they're normal and not that special. Or, they start chatting that I am too arrogant. But, I believe those 'new experiences' absolutely have a heavy importance. Searching for colleges for preparing my future. Well done! They're significant even I would prefer Hogwarts, haha.Read more >

I found a picture online about Minerva McGonagall being like a mother to her students, even though she never had any children of her own. It said one thing for each year, like "Minerva McGonagall never had children, but she always helped first years find their way" and "Minerva McGonagall never had children, but she accounted for each and every third year after Hogsmeade visits.", and "Minerva McGonagall never had children, but she cried when the seventh years left her, and waited for their children to return." But the one for sixth year says, "Minerva McGonagall never had children, but she smiled at the sixth years whose hearts had been broken, and frowned at those who had done the breaking." Does anyone know if this happened in the books…Read more >
· I have seen the movies and my question is: what do wizards do, what is their purpose, do they have a job or a function in the world. Yes they can perform magic, fly on broom sticks and battle each other but what is the task they have? Why where they created, to what end? What do they do after they finish school? You see to have these special power they must have something important to do? · Muggles are easy to understand, they are only here to make more babies to grow-up and be wage slaves for the rich, but wizards must have a purpose. And that raises another question, are the rich and famous all wizards and witches? · Do wizards and witches have jobs, how do they support themselves?· OK they have jobs and make magic but do they have a fun…Read more >

I've always wonder about the number of Hogwarts students and particularly the number of students in Harry's year.
JKR showed this list in "Harry Potter and me".
The list countains 40 names, 5 per gender per house.
However, on Pottermore, it is said that JKR just tought to 40 students, but there were more than 40 students per year... but JKR's statement doesn't fit with the story.
The Gryffindor boys are definitely five (Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan), while the known Gryffindor girls are three (Hermione Granger, Calì Patil and Lavanda Brown). It can be assumed that the Gryffindor students were ten, the known Gryffindor students + "two missing girls". This is proved true, because in Lupin's le…Read more >

I conjured a rather crazy idea, but what if Rolf Scamander… wait for it… is actually a grown-up Rolf from legendary Cartoon Network TV cartoon, Ed, Edd n Eddy!? It would explain why the country that Ed, Edd n Eddy-version Rolf hails from is unknown to the regular world and why he possesses some extremely uncanny traditions, as well as the most unnatural cuisine. Not to mention qualities which would only make sense if he had some magic running through his veins. For example, in the episode "Cry Ed," he has claimed to witness a meatball, which possesses a bloodcurdling scream, stalking his goat in the middle of the night. A stalker-meatball with a blood-curdling scream? Sounds like some magical creature that hails from a magical world, possibly on…Read more >

Theres been rumor goin' 'round that the snake from the first Harry Potter, Philosophers(Sorcerers) Stone is Lord Voldemorts snake Nagini. This is a false rumor, the snake from the first movie is in fact that of a male, and a brown boa constrictor. Nagini is a green viper, and is in fact a female. If you don't believe me, then watch the movies. When the snake from the first movie speaks, it has a male voice. And later in Goblet Of Fire, you hear Naginis voice. And she has a female voice, Nagini also has golden eyes and a green color to her. She's also a lot larger than the snake from the first movie. And he is in fact brown, with brow eyes. You need to look closer at the details before assuming something. There are clear facts that should p…Read more >
I am a 19 year old teenage girl and like a lot of girls my age, I have kept a diary. Well, at least I have tried to anyways. The other day, I was thinking of keeping one more seriously since I have been going through a lot of things. I thought that maybe if I wrote down all those worries and extra thoughts in my head, I would feel better.
So since I am into my technology a lot I downloaded and app to keep the diary in. I always password them so no one can see who i am crushing on and what I am thinking of that the moment. I have had times where I have read over those diaries and I have visably cringed at all I have written. Anyways I am not writting thos post to tell you that I tend to like weird guys but on the Pensive that the Headmast…Read more >
I've noticed that in GOF, Cedric, Viktor and Fleur are said to have had 3 more years of education than Harry, meaning Cedric is a 7th year. This coincides with earlier info claiming he was a year younger. That's what the wiki seems to be going with, but until J.K. confirms for certain what his year is, either option seems to work, in my humble opinion.

We asked you a while back to submit questions to the cast and crew of "Mudbloods," the documentary about real life Quidditch, and the Potterheads were true to the end! Now, the film director Farzad Sangari and UCLA team captain Tom Marks have the answers to your questions! Keep reading to see what they had to say about playing Quidditch in real life, what they want people to get from the documentary, and what they think the future of Quidditch is!
Unfortunately they didn't have a chance to answer every single question, but hopefully what they have to say will give you a little more insight into the world of real life Quidditch! If you're looking to learn more about "Mudbloods," like their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter at @Mudblood…

Hi there. i'm new in town. I found this site when I was doing research for my fanfiction, which is about resurrecting Snape (hey, if star trek can resurrect Spock, then why the heck not?) . It's a crossover fanfiction, with my version of what happened to Avalon and the Fey, who retreated into the mists when Arthur died, taking the Druids with them,. So, just what sort of society would evolve? I'm tying in a lot of the stuff i learned studying theology and psychology (I'm a Jungian) under the influence of Jesuits. I'd be a Jesuit if they let girls in. My protagonist, Eli le Fey, is Snape's "friend with benefits" who acts as his guardian angel. Her father is a human wizard and her mother a Faerie, she is a Warrior Witch and necroman…Read more >

Harry Potter’s most popular wizarding sport, Quiddtich, has come to life off the page. Over the past several years, the sport has morphed into a physically demanding, real-life sport. Quidditch is one of the fastest growing collegiate club sports today.
The documentary, Mudbloods, follows the dedicated underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. Through nail biting victories and losses, the dreamers, creators and athletes who make up this exceptional community come together to make this magical sport into something you could’ve never imagined, until now.
The documentary has released it's first official trailer which can be veiwed below. Mudbloods is set for release in O…Read more >
How come you guys don't have a forum? This blog post was the only way I could find to communicate with the community. I hope that's okay.
Anyway, hi! I'm Scott from Muppet Wiki. Jim Henson's Creature Shop supplied some effects for the first HP movie, and some crew are credited for a bear that appeared in the movie. I looked at your article for Bear, but I didn't see anything about it. Was it cut from the film? Does anyone know if footage or pictures of it exist?
