Why Harry Potter Fans Should Be Freaking Out this Week
J.K. Rowling is just making me the happiest little Harry Potter nerd of all time. Why is that you say? Well, two things happened this week that have me FREAKING OUT.
Check out this REALLY IMPORTANT Potter news!

The First Look at the Prequel Movie!

The title treatment for the movie was released, and it looks pretty familiar if you ask me. According to Entertainment Weekly, it's a similar font and style to the HP films. The designers made one big change to the letters, replacing the lightning bolt on the original “P” in “Potter” with a serpentine “S” in “Beasts.”
The movie premiers in November 2016.

J.K. Rowling is Writing a New Children's Book!

Rowling gave an interview won BBC Radio Tuesday saying some real important stuff:
“Actually, I have written part of a children’s book that I really love, so I’m definitely going to finish that. There will be another children’s book.”
The interviewer then asked if she had a lot of ideas in her head!
"I have so many ideas...I sometimes genuinely worry that I’ll die before writing them all out. That’s my mid-life crisis, that I’ll leave this earth without having written them all."

WHY IS SHE SO COOL.

Add that to the fact that she's still working on a play...

This is old news, for the hardcore fans, but still exciting nonetheless. J.K. Rowling announced in June that she is working on a play called, The Cursed Child essentially the story of James and Lilly Potter before their untimely death.
Well, you could just say I'm the happiest little book, theatre, and Potter lover this week.
Please excuse me as I curl up in bed and re-read all the books and re-watch all the movies.

Who else out there is excited?!

My cousin's basement is like a freaking wizard school, I kid you not. Bookcases of stuff, crazy mythical themed furniture, lanterns and figurines. She's even got that crazy Harry Potter tv remote thingy. >_< Not to mention her house robe is potter themed, and she has all the scarves and hats... UGH. It's a museum of fandom going on. @Nicolejb

@shannonl5 *Joins the wiggin' out club, adds some more squeals* Right right? That hit me harder than the star wars thing, and that's saying a LOT. -__- *apologizes to star wars fans, isn't dissing it or anything, but the guy with the shorter wands come first*
