News you can use. That is our motto over here at Much.ca. If you are a Harry Potter lover like myself, you probably already know all of this stuff. But for those of you who are not, we wanted to prime you on all of the latest news from the Harry Potter world. If you are going to encounter anyone this weekend who loves HP, this is what they will want to talk about. Trust me. Keep reading to get yourself caught up.

1) Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Will Be 3 Movies:

J.K Rowling - In Conversation

I mean. Der. The new J.K. Rowling penned films will be released in 2016, 2018 and 2020. The movies will be set in the wizarding universe years before Lily Potter birthed the perfectly uscarred head of Harry Potter. It will follow the story of Newt Scamander, a fantastic beast expert in New York city 70 years before the other books. David Yates, the director of the final four Harry Potter films, is directing the new trilogy. J.K. also tweeted an anagram about a part of the plot that was unscrambled to say, “Newt only meant to stay in New York for a few hours.” Once it was solved, she elaborated:

Opinion You Should Hold: This is just great. Although you wish that director Alfonsn Curon, director of Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, could get a shot at at least one of the films.

2) Warwick Davis Will Star In The Next Star Wars Film:

"Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone" - VIP Screening

Warwick Davis, who the Harry Potter heads know as both Griphook and Professor Flitwick, will return to the Star Wars universe three decades after his debut as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi. He was filming a YouTube video about his time as part of Star Wars when he received a call from J.J. Abrams asking him to be part of the world again. It isn’t clear what his new role will be but heck, that is exciting.

Opinion You Should Hold: Warwick Davis is a Commonwealth treasure. You can’t wait to see anything he is in. Apply this attitude towards whatever you feel about the next Star Wars films.

3) J.K. Rowling Is Building Her Own Hagrid’s Hut

It is no surprise that J.K. Rowling has some money. Well earned money and lots of it. What does she do with her money? Why the same thing the rest of us Harry Potter geeks would do. Build a replica Hagrid hut in her backyard. Like the hut in the books and films, the little house will be on the edge of her property right by a forest. She has built a series of interconnected treehouses on her land for her children in the past. So. Cool. Check out the plans for the hut:

Opinion You Should Hold: Jealz.

Broad City’s Abbi and Ilana A Little Confused About HP:

Buzzfeed did a hilarious Q&A with Abbi and Ilana from Broad City about who they would like to get high with. The questions ranged from cereal mascots to politicians. But the big question was, which Harry Potter character would they like to get high with?

Ummm… there are some problems here. 1) RON F’N WEASLEY and 2) HermiOne. Don’t get it twisted.

Opinion You Should Hold: It’s a good thing these ladies are cute and funny. They better get their character facts straight next time or they are cut. CUT I SAY!
