Quidditch

  1. Mudbloods Director Farzard Sangari and Chaser Ali Cottong Talk About Real-Life Quidditch

    Brooms up!

    If you haven't heard of Mudbloods, don't let the title fool you—it's a surprisingly heartfelt and fascinating look into the world of collegiate-level Quidditch, which is a real sport that has nothing to do with magic. Our review of the documentary went up on Wednesday, but we also got the chance to speak with both the director Farzad Sangari and one of the former UCLA players, Ali Cottong, about the world they tried to capture together on film.

  2. Review: Mudbloods Documentary Shows You An Amazing New Side to Quidditch

    Brooms up!

    A whole generation of Harry Potter fans can probably still remember the heartbreak they felt in childhood upon realizing that Hogwarts isn't real and they weren't going to get sent a letter in the mail informing them of their supernatural wizarding powers. There are ways to pretend otherwise, of course, but only one such method involves running, jumping, and brutally body checking your opponents as a crowd of onlookers cheer for you. Ladies and gentlemuggles: welcome to Quidditch.

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

    It's lev-i-O-sa!

    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.

  10. Check Out These Olympic Quidditch Jerseys – Yes, That’s Right, I Said Olympic Quidditch

    There's An Apparate For That

    There are many obscure sports in the Olympics both Summer and Winter, and many more lobbying to be included in the games. Quidditch (which, if you're new to the site, is the real life sport adapted from the fictional one played by witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series that replaces flying broomsticks with running with a broomstick between your legs, and a small flying ball that actively evades and hides from the player trying to catch it with an actual person running and hiding from other players) is not likely to be one of the sports accepted into the Olympic games any time soon, not least because of its niche appeal and comparative youth. However, the home of this summer's Olympic Games is England, which is also the home of the Harry Potter series, and so it should come as absolutely no surprise that the International Quidditch Association is planning an international Quidditch Exposition for the days in which the Olympic torch relay passes through Oxford, with teams of exemplary players chosen from four countries: America, France, Australia, and the United Kingdom. And, you can buy the jersey of the team of your choice, and they look pretty freakin' rad.
