Ok folks, put down your fried chicken, because here it is: your chance to meet Hogwart's only black kid, Bem.
It's not until halfway through the third Harry Potter film that Bem appears. He turns up whenever anyone mentions the words "dark" or "black" to add a bit of colour to the scene.
He only says two lines in the entire movie, so it's with great excitement that we present this exclusive interview with Bem. The unsung star of Prisoner of Azkaban finally has the chance to speak about Harry Potter, institutionalised racism, and his acting career in general.
Behold the king of black magic. This is Bem, in his own words.
Spoilers ahead folks. In case you couldn't guess from the headline.
The point at which Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be divided into two has been discovered. Fans were both angry and excited by Warner Bros' decision to release the Potter finale in two parts. After the spectacular Harry Potter trailer hit them in the face, they settled firmly on the excited side of the fence. Now, they'll either get angry or excited once more when they find out where exactly Deathly Hallows' split point is.
Chapter 24. That's the official halfway point, according to Entertainment Weekly's report. In J.K Rowling's book, that's the moment just after Dobby dies and Ollivander gives some decent plot exposition, namely that Voldemort knows about the Elder Wand - which he promptly nicks from Dumbledore's tomb.
It's a good point to split it, if a little unsurprising: there's a moving farewell scene where Harry buries Dobby, plus the grave-robbing cliffhanger to tease desperate Potter fans. A lot of them still accuse Warner Bros of doing the double take "purely for financial reasons".
Alan Horn, Warner Bros President, is having none of it: "The key word there is purely... There's no question that Warner Bros will make more money with two films than they would have with one. But we also never ever would have done this if [J.K Rowling] had not endorsed it, and if we didn't feel that we were providing a better finale, with a more full sense of closure."
The key word there is "fuller", Alan. "Fuller". Grammar fail.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out in 98 days time.
You may think this is an ordinary Wednesday in August. You'd be wrong. It's actually 100 days until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) is released - and Emma Watson's counting. Or someone else definitely is, because the actress who plays Hermione Granger announced that to mark the countdown, 100 tickets to the Deathly Hallows World Premiere would be given away.
Where? Why, on Facebook of course! And how? Via a new Harry Potter app (of course). The app, Join the Battle, is another step in the massive worldwide Potter frenzy as fans gear up for the concluding episodes of JK Rowling's phenomenally successful series.
Directed by Potter stalwart David Yates, Deathly Hallows is set to be the dark, gloomy, thrilling final movie that people dared to hope for, building up to the climactic battle of Hogwarts, which will probably end up taking up most of the film's second part.
Still unsure why there's so much buzz around one boy wizard? Check out the trailer over here (there's even a pretty poster of a building on fire), and readjust your wand settings. Then, if you fancy the chance to win a seat at the premiere, head over to the official Harry Potter UK Facebook Page. Or just watch Potter Puppet Pals for the 100th time - that won't win you the ticket, but it will keep that Potter high going.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) hits cinemas on Friday 19th November. Part 2 will arrive on Friday 15th July 2011. You can start counting down to that one in your own spare time.
It's Daniel Radcliffe's 21st birthday! But instead of giving him a cake, here's something that will clearly make his day far happier: three new featurettes for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. No, you can't eat them.
Need to brush up on your Deathly Hallows' story? There's something to sort you right out. Love wizards? Love running? Then you'll really love the close look at Harry, Ron and Hermione on the run in the wild muggle world. And competitive? Boy, is that boy wizard competitive - see ickle Danny Radcliffe pretending he can run really quickly, even faster than a girl. Which he blatantly can't.
Coming right after that spectacular theatrical trailer, HP7 is still shaping up to be a stunning conclusion to the epic franchise. So sit back, light a candle, and celebrate the growing pains of Danny Radcliffe with three rather exciting videos.
It's either that or bake the cake after all. And it's hard to bake a cake in the shape of a horse.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released on Friday 19th November. Re-watch the trailer over here, or read on for all three new videos.
"The Finale Of The Worldwide Phenomenon!"
"The Motion Picture Event Of A Generation!"
Subtlety isn't the word here. Oh no. Because after all that excitement at the MTV Movie Awards, the wait for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is finally over. Not the wait for the film, mind you - even when Part One's out in November, you'll still have to wait until July next year for Part Two. For now, the wait is over for the trailer, because finally, the much-coveted video went live online today. At 3am.
Directed by David Yates, the dark final chapter to the epic fantasy franchise reaches its mature conclusion with a solid slice of gloom and a few touches of doom. With ickle Danny Radcliffe and Rupert Grint looking more like almost-grown-men than ever before, they join the slightly-taller Emma Watson as J.K. Rowling's wizarding trio come of age.
Horcruxes, Hallows, Tents and Dragons - Deathly Hallows has it all. And in two parts. Will it actually live up to the honestly rather insane amount of hype that precedes it? From the looks of the (admittedly spectacular) trailer, most likely yes. But check out the trailer yourself below, and give us your thoughts.
And, while you're at it, check out the pretty stills below the super-glossy video as well. Just in case you're not drooling enough yet.
It's less than a year until the next Harry Potter film, but they've already released the first image from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - the first part of which comes out in November next year.
Directed by the excellent David Yates once more, the two-parter sees Harry, Ron and Hermione shrug off their school uniforms for a stint in the real world. There's a load of CGI, I'm sure, but there's also a lot of mud, dirt and camping. So it's no surprise that the first photo, from USA Today, showcases them in their normal muggle clothes: "Me and Dan actually have some stubble!" Rupert Grint told USA Today.
Yates added: "It's going to feel very real. We're going for a vérité approach. Being away from Hogwarts, they're like these three refugees on the run. They're out in the big bad world, facing real danger, unguarded by those wonderful benign wizards at Hogwarts. They don't have a home to go to."
Is it wrong to already get a little excited about this?
