Well, it has been a while since I have posted Pottermore information. I thought I would put in a few things that has been on Pottermore since my last post.

Of course the biggest news of late was the Patronus test that was posted in this thread: viewtopic.php?p=289840#p289840

LEGO Dimensions added Harry Potter and will soon add Fantastic Beasts. Here is a look:


The final trailer for Fantastic Beasts was released:


The Fantastic Beasts E-book Cover was redesigned by Olly Moss

Eddie Redmayne discovers his Patronus

Just taken a look at some of the links properly, that newspaper is one of the coolest things I've ever seen!! Wish they were in Australia, would buy one. Not really sure what the Google thing is... it says there are none near me.

Didn't go into much of the Fantastic Beasts stuff because I don't like knowing anything about the movie before I see it, but the interviews were cool. Loved Eddie's bowtruckle. And Evanna is such a fangirl haha.

Thanks for posting those links Hermione! :D I get really excited for Fantastic Beasts. I so hope it will live up to expectations, but it looks great from what I've seen now.

I'm really excited about seeing Fantastic Beasts too. Poppy, I am trying not to see too much from the Fantastic Beasts movie till I see it too. I will definately look at them really well after I see the movie. I am not sure if I will see the movie in 3D, since it is a bit expensive (I think it may be worth it though). Is anyone going to see the 3D version?

Today Pottermore posted that everyone who bought a ticket to the gala screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at Carnegie Hall also donated to Lumos by buying the ticket to the event. Here are some clips that gives more on Lumos:

I'm not such a fan of 3D.. so I think I'll just watch it normally.

I adore bonnie jk Rowling and evanna ... the work they do is so important.

I also won't watch it in 3D. I don't really see how it adds anything. When I'm absorbed in a film I automatically assume myself as part of it all. I have once seen a film in 3D in the cinema and I only found it irritating to wear those 3D glasses, and in the end not everything has the 3D effect.
Nice to know that Lumos is still going strong. At university we also regularly volunteered for them. I agree Poppy that it's important work.

Thank you Poppy and Cora. That helped me feel better about deciding not watching the 3D version of the film.
