All Potterheads are getting so excited as the summer progresses because we are getting that much closer to delving back into the world of Harry Potter. And J.K. Rowling gave us a tease of what we can expect from the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which releases on November 18th of this year. The below video is a new featurette with Rowling explaining more about who Newt Scamander is and the journey he undertakes.
To be frank, there is nothing I am more excited about entertainment-wise this year than all of the material coming to the world of Harry Potter. Between the new movie coming in November and the new play/book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, coming next month, it is a fantastic time to be Potter fan. It’s been 9 years since we had a new HP book to read and 5 years since we had a new movie to watch. That is a long dry spell. But soon it will be raining Harry Potter and I will be dancing in the rain!
Do not forget that the new book will release on July 31st. Next month!! It’s almost time. I highly recommend pre-ordering your copy. Many booksellers (including the chain stores, Books-a-Million and Barnes and Noble) are doing midnight release parties on the 30th. I have been to many midnight HP release parties at BAM, and I plan to be at the BAM one next month, just like the good ole’ days!!
Are you getting excited for new Harry Potter? Can you just not contain your excitement? What are you most looking forward to?
