Many of us who grew up with the entire Harry Potter franchise remember waiting in those incredibly long queues for the latest book to be released, eagerly sprinted to the cinema for the flicks and desperately trying to dodge spoilers about character plots.

We also know that once it gets rebooted, we're officially OLD. Daniel Radcliffe will always be our Harry, Emma Watson our Hermione, and Rupert Grint our ginger nut Ron. 

The actor who played the title role has now confirmed his thoughts that the hugely popular franchise will be rebooted, and we're totally in denial. Please don't do this to us.

Radcliffe spoke to IGN about playing the boy wizard in the formative film series, sharing his affirmation that "some other version" of the movies will be created in the future.

"I’m sure there will be some other version of it. I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more in stage play Cursed Child."

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has kept the wizarding world alive (and is allegedly getting five films), as well as Pottermore and Harry Potter World. Radcliffe didn't rule out the possibility of a Harry Potter TV spin-off.

The actor recently revealed that the spin-off would be intriguing especially if it featured the Marauders- the name given to the group of friends featuring Harry's papa James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew and Sirius Black.

The Marauders gang aren't alive before the final book or movie, the movie would presumably be a prequel. "I feel like there are other stories from that world that you could absolutely turn into a TV series, 100 percent," Daniel told TV Guide.

"A series with the older generation Marauders, that could be very cool." Amen, Daniel, Amen.

“To a certain extent with things like the play and Fantastic Beasts, I think people are still interested in talking to me about it, but nothing’s been happening in that area,” he told E! News in May of last year.

“At the moment, I’m very much enjoying playing lots of different stuff.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter he wouldn’t mind reprising his role.

“I’m never going to close that door, but I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it,” he said at the time.

Radcliffe's latest role sees him take on the part of a low-level angel in Miracle Workers who must convince God to let humans survive.

Tuesdays are known to be a pretty 'meh' day. It's not Monday, so it's not too bad, but it still feels like there's a whole year to go until you reach the weekend again.

So, if you find yourself a bit distracted in work or college today, then head to Amazon to get a giggle.

To celebrate the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the shopping mecca has created some spells – on its homepage.

All you need to do is type your fave spell – we tried Lumos and Reducto – and watch the magic words take control of your screen.

Lumos will turn your screen completely black until a tiny ray of light beams through and Reducto will shatter the glass on your screen (not for real, obvz).

It will only work on its US site, so just log into Amazon.com to experience the magic.

Not too shabby for taking a minute out of your work day, huh?



Now this is something we're totally on board with!

JK Rowling has hinted that Dumbledore will be openly gay in the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

During the week, director David Yates confirmed that the mighty wizard will be in the upcoming movie, and fans have been going mental to find out who will portray him.

However, JK has implied that young Albus will have a relationship with the dark wizard Gellet Grindelwald, who will be played by Johnny Depp.

In a press conference yesterday, the author said: "I can't tell you everything I would like to say because this is obviously a five-part story so there’s lots to unpack in that relationship.

"You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man — he wasn't always the sage. We’ll see him at that formative period of his life.

"And as far as his sexuality is concerned … Watch this space."

Yaaas! Slay Dumbledore, slaaay.



Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hasn't even hit the cinema yet, but an announcement has already been made for the upcoming sequel.

According to Deadline, Johnny Depp is joining Eddie Redmayne and the cast for the second installment of the movie.

Johnny's exact role remains top-secret for now, but it has been reported that we'll see a small glimpse of him in the first movie.

For those not up to date, Fantastic Beasts is a tale about the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

The first movie hits cinemas at the end of this month.



If you are in anyway a muggle in LOVE with all things Harry Potter, you will probably already know that J.K Rowling's 2001 book Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is being made into a feature film straight out of wizarding universe. 

What you may not know is that the trailer was just released today and well, we can't wait to get back to Hogwarts.

While J.K's Fantastic Beasts reads as a textbook guide to the fantastical creatures that inhabit the magical world of our favourite unfortunate wizard, the book has been adapted into a story for the screen. 

The movie centres around Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne, who is the author of the book Fantastic Beasts book in the Harry Potter series. 

When a magical expanding briefcase containing a number of fantastical and dangerous creatures is opened, it is safe to say that CHAOS ensues. 

The movie is set to be released in November of next year.
