It is directed by David Yates, the same director as the fifth film, The Order of the Phoenix. The plot revolves around Voldemort’s tightening grip on the Muggle and Wizarding worlds.

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.
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!
Tom Felton is best known for playing the antagonistic Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movie series. He has been acting since he was eight years old and joined the entertainment industry when a family friend noticed his unusual talent. Tom hooked up with an agent and after auditioning against over 400 children, got an international commercial campaign and headed to New York City to work. In 2001 he became internationally known as Draco Malfoy. Before he got that role, however, he auditioned to play Ron Weasley and Harry Potter. Out of the four main stars (Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson), Tom has the most extensive film experience.

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.
Yahoo Movies, as part of their summer movie preview, has posted a gallery of 20 Great Movie Creatures and included in this list of magical entities that are surely familiar to Harry Potter fanatics is Kreacher. We know Kreacher as the house elf at Grimmauld Place who’s known to be very loyal to the Black family and hates Harry Potter more than anything. Other creatures included in the list are ET, Gollum from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the King Kong original from the classic film way back in 1933, Jabba the Hut from Return of the Jedi, Asterious the Minotaur from the newly released film Prince Caspian, and the Flying Monkeys from the Wizard of Oz.
The Boston Globe featured an article that talks about John Williams, composer extraordinaire. Harry Potter fans are well aware of this music genius because he composed the scores of Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban. Aside from performing some of his Potter scores in Boston just a week ago, the article also revealed that he currently working hard on several soundtracks for Half-Blood Prince. But it was revealed in November that Nicholas Hooper would be setting score on the sixth film, not Williams. The truth is he is credited for the Harry Potter theme in Half-Blood Prince but it was originally composed for Sorcerer’s Stone and used for every film after that.
Are you wondering where the Harry Potter cast and stars are now? I’m pretty sure that you miss them like I do. Most of the famous movie’s actor and actresses are now doing their thing on their own. Just like my favorite Emma Watson who once plays as Hermione Jean Granger in Harry Potter movies. She is now doing more matured character like in Perks of Being a Wallflower and the newest is the Bling Ring. Emma is now considered as one of the most well known actresses of today’s generation. Three more other reason why I love and admire this young lady is because:
1. She is totally a Fashion Risk Taker. She always grabs her look with lots confidence and present her individuality with lots of good manner. She doesn’t display her body. She have a unique style that everyone would surely admire. Actually, Emma will be showing her astonishing style again in the new fragrance, Midnight Rose, that Lancome will release.
2. She’s absolutely a classy and timeless young lady. If there is one thing that is so special with Emma, it’s her class. A modern lady that present herself as classy, modest and confident.
3. She is a perfect role model and always keeps her feet on the ground. In spite of her success, you will still find her humble. She will not spend her money on buying new cars and go shopping, that most young lady who gets huge income do, but instead she chooses to spend her money on the things that matter most to her, education, family, and other blessings in her life.
