Harry Potter Chess Sets are a fun way to show your love of Harry Potter!
Ever since the original Harry Potter book came out (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), the fan base of the Harry Potter series has grown larger and larger. Many of these fans have become “rabid fans,” or fans that will do just about anything to get a hold of Harry Potter items.
It is no surprise then, that after Harry Potter Wizard Chess was revealed in the book, and after Harry had to win a life-size Wizard’s Chess game in the first book, that fans went nuts to find replica’s of the chess sets for their very own home collection.
Seeing this gap in goods, product creators jumped onto the opportunity, and today we have a large variety of Harry Potter chess sets that we can get for our homes.
These sets range from under $50 to over $700! Obviously, the more you pay for one of these chess sets, the higher quality it will be.
Unfortunately, some greedy manufacturer’s are out for nothing but extreme profit, and some of these sets are very low quality and are priced high.
They prey on Harry Potter fan’s obsessions with the sets, and charge much more than they are worth.
However, as long as you are a smart shopper, you can avoid this issue.
Remember to always look at the feedback for the model chess set! If there is no feedback available, open a new window and search for the product in Google to see if you can find any feedback about the set.
Harry Potter Chess sets are a great way to express your love of the series, but remember to always be mindful of where you are buying from. If the supplier doesn’t offer any ratings, feedback score or pictures, it should scream SCAM to you.
Just be careful, and soon enough you will enjoy a replica Harry Potter Chess Set in your own home that you can show off to all your friends! (Or keep to yourself if you’re a closet fan.)
Happy and safe shopping!
There will be two parts that Warner Bros. will be making for the seventh and final book of Harry Potter, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” The first part will be released in 2010 and the second part will follow the next year. This decision extends a movie contract that has taken $4.49 billion in worldwide ticket sales or an average of $897 million for each of the five films, this according to Box Office Mojo. It might be a great way to prolong a franchise because fans are still crazy about such an idea. The additional film will help bring visitors as well to the Harry Potter theme park that Warner Bros. is planning to open with NBC Universal next year.
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) are set to return to the big screen for the sixth Harry Potter film adaptation, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Here’s the storyline…
The threesome are returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their sixth year… Along with school bully Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). Fortunately for them, Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is also returning to lend a hand in defeating evil. Jim Broadbent joins the never-ending cast of veteran British actors already working at Hogwarts. He’ll be playing Dumbledore’s buddy, Horace Slughorn.
Voldemort’s forces of evil are amassing…
…Hogwarts is ceasing to be a sanctuary for Harry and his friends…
…They have to come up with a cunning plan…
…Now they have to recruit the unlikeliest of soldiers and prepare for battle…
The film is likely to be the darkest in the series so far with what director David Yates has described as ‘Train spotting moments’.
Shooting of the film started on 04 September, 2007 and it was originally planned for a UK and US release on 21 November 2008, but on 14 August 2008, the new release date was announced that is on17 July, 2009. In respect of the new release date many controversies have been raised and for that reason president & Chief Operating Officer of Warner Bros. production, Alan Horn gave a speech which is following:
“Many of you have written to me to express your disappointment in our moving ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ to summer 2009. Please be assured that we share your love for Harry Potter and would certainly never do anything to hurt any of the films. Over the past 10 years, we have nurtured and protected each film, and the integrity of the books upon which they are based, to the best of our ability. The decision to move ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ was not taken lightly, and was never intended to upset our Harry Potter fans. We know you have built this series into what it is, and we thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm and support. If I may offer a silver lining: there would have been a two-year gap between ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and the much-anticipated first part of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,’ which opens in November 2010. So although we have to wait a little longer for ‘Half-Blood Prince,’ the wait from that film until ‘Deathly Hallows’ will be less than 18 months. I am sorry to have disappointed you now, but if you hold on a little longer, I believe it will be worth the wait.”
In the last post, we shared a few fun and easy recipes for making chocolate frogs. Today, we’ll make one of the most infamous sweets to be found in the Honeydukes sweet shop!
One of the most famous (and infamous, if I might add) treats to first ever be introduced in the Harry Potter universe would have to be Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans. In the first book, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, Ron explains to Harry what its all about while snacking on a veritable stash Harry bought off the Honeydukes Express trolley. It is indeed just like what it says on the box – every jelly bean is of its own distinct, special flavor, both the palatable and not-so-palatable. Headmaster Dumbledore himself was not immune to its tricks – at the end of the book, he helps himself to a pile of the sweets a fan left Harry as the young boy was recuperating in the infirmary from his tangle with Voldemort. “Alas”, Dumbledore sighs, “earwax.” Here’s a recipe you can try out with a pack of pre-made jelly beans.
Good news for Harry Potter fans who think the movies should be more faithful to the novel. According to the crew working on the Harry Potter flicks, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (the seventh novel of the Harry Potter series) will be relesed in two parts. The first five Harry Potter movies have made 2.5 billion pounds in the box office, and a two-part movie could mean a 500 million pound bonus. Sources, however, insist that the motive behind the two-part movie is not financial. Since the books got progressively longer, fans complained that chunks of the novel get left out in the film. While not every single detail in the book will get included in the movie, the producers are discussing all sorts of possibilities.
The first part of the end for our dear Harry has him and his close friends out to find several horcruxes or objects that magically contain parts of Voldemort’s soul in an effort to weaken and eventually kill the evil wizard. The legend of the Deathly Hallows was only a legend till the wand maker Olivander confirms the legend to be true, in a sense.
The legend has three magical objects that to who ever possesses all of them becomes the most powerful wizard of all time. The objects consists of the Elder Wand, the Cloak of Invisibility and the Ressurection stone, all given by death to three brothers who were contained in a story/legend known as The tales of the Three Brothers. Harry, Hermoine and Rupert all go out after the Horcruxes which was compounded by the legend which they believe is true and may hold the key to ending the rising influence and power of you know who.
Scheduled for release last year, it was re-scheduled for July of 2009 which may have something to do with the division of the last installment to the series “Deathly Hallows” into two parts to prolong the mystery of the story. Many years in the making, the movies have long been overtaken by the books J.K. Rowling had released. In Half-Blood Prince, it is revealed that a death is to happen as the movie ends. Not our main characters and even their supporting cast who continue to battle with adolescence as they grow into their adult lives made ever more dangerous by knowledge that Voldemort may just be around the corner
The aim of the movie was to show the increasing grip the ‘Dark Lord’ is gaining on both worlds and this is made apparent by attacks carried out by the dark forces. Looking into the past of the dark one, our heroes try to find his Achilles Heel which may be very useful to Harry when he has to face him for the final battle which may decide who is to rule the muggle and magic worlds. Harry’s long protector Professor Aldus Dumbledore is killed as the movie reaches its climax and Professor Snape, the long ally is revealed to be the Half-Blood Prince, called upon again by the Dark Lord to carry out his deeds.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince isn’t even out yet, and the a number of the cast for the next and last installment of the adventures of the Boy Who Lived. Which will be split in two parts, by the way, and will leave Harry Potter fans in painful anticipation.
One of the conformed changes to the cast will be for the role of Aberforth Dumbledore, who was played by Jim McManus, who will be replaced by Ciaran Hinds. Emma Thompson will not be returning as Professor Trelawney, but there are no confirmed replacements for her yet.
In other cast news, Welsh actor Rhys Ifans (who you might remember from his role as Spike in the romantic comedy ‘Notting Hill’) will be joining the Harry Potter movie franchise, and is rumored to be playing Xenophilius Lovegood.
According to newly released figures covering up to August of last year, the 18-year-old made the massive sum thanks to his movie roles and some shrewd investments. Accounts for his company Gilmore Jacobs show he banked £4 million in cash, totaled up investments of £7 million, as well as being owed £2 million in payments, according to The Sun.
Holywood, CA – Production officials announced today that the newest Harry Potter book will become the next Harry Potter movie sequel. ‘Harry Potter meets Abbott and Costello’ will go into production this summer and will star the usual cast members, plus veteran actor Johnnie Depp in oner of the lead roles as comic Lou Costello.
The movie is set in Brooklyn, New York and is the typical Potter-fare but with a twist, this time it’s about murder, love, and lots of sexual action.
