Disney Characters Sorted Into Hogwarts Houses Might Lead To All Sorts of Arguments

Because that’s what always happens when the issue of sorting fictional characters into Hogwarts houses comes up, right? I, for one, am just pleased that Eira1893 sorted Tiana into Hufflepuff, where she belongs. Sorting characters who should clearly be in Hufflepuff into other houses is a pet peeve of mine. ‘Puff pride!

Best of Hail HYDRA: The New Marvel Meme Sweeping The Internet

According to Know Your Meme, the “Hail HYDRA” meme has been around a while because, well, HYDRA is a Marvel Comics institution. But they cite Twitter user ‏@ReyEstupendo (his Bert & Ernie above) as the first to start the current iteration spawning from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It reminds me of the #TrueDetectiveSeason2 meme which was equally entertaining, but not nearly as nerdy. Anyway, recent events have caused it to completely explode and we’ve captured a measly 21 amusing instances of it we’ve found online.

Sounds Like J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Is Getting A Movie Trilogy

We knew that the Harry Potter spinoff book was getting a movie, but three? Three of them? Break out the butterbeer!

There’s no official announcement yet, but judging by a recent article in the New York Times, this sounds like it’s at least on the table. This weekend, the Times published a profile of Warner Bros. C.E.O. Kevin Tsujihara, who originally coaxed J.K. Rowling into writing the Fantastic Beasts screenplay. Tucked in among details about his career history was an interesting tidbit about the movie — or, as it turns out, movies.

J.K. Rowling Published New Harry Potter-Universe Content Online Today

Surprise! While J.K. Rowling is busy promoting her new book series, she secretly finished History of the Quidditch World Cup. And she just published the first half online for free. You should be able to read it here but it seems Pottermore has been overloaded. I’m not surprised. You may recall Warner Bros was able to convince the offer to continue the Harry Potter juggernaut on the big screen with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (she’s also working on an HP prequel for the London stage). I wonder if this story will be next? Either way, part 2 of History of the Quidditch World Cup will be published on Pottermore on Friday, March 21.
