Happy April Fool’s Day! Of all the tricks today, BoxLunch may have had our favorite. For those of you that have not heard of them, they are an online store that specializes in geeky products from Harry Potter to Zelda. What we love most about this store is their charity involvement – for every $10 spent on the site or in-store, they help provide a meal to a person in need via a partnership with Feeding America.
Today they announced a brand new product, an Exclusive “Butterbeer Home Brewing Kit.” They even have a video showcasing how the product is used. You can order yours via their website and you have the option to provide your email address in exchange for a meal donated to Feeding America on your behalf.
BoxLunch have offered to giveaway TWO gift cards to very lucky Magical-Menagerie fans! We’ll be giving away a $100 and $50 gift card to spend on whatever your heart desires! Entering is very simple.

I hope most of you noticed that not all the news today was for real, if not…shame on you! Anyways, the stories that were fake have now been categorized under the “April Fools” category.
Some of you took them a bit too seriously, especially the Emma one. You guys know that I would NEVER talk about Emma’s private life, since I am an avid protector of their privacy. It was supposed to be a funny joke.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the jokes, I know they weren’t too exciting, but it still amused me. But by far, my favorite joke was the one I did in 2007, see it here!
Rupert Grint will be moving to Los Angeles following the completion of the Harry Potter films. He stated in recent interview “I am moving to LA to fully pursue my acting career and because I want to be hounded by paparazzi and fans.”
We wish Rupert the best of luck with his acting career and his pending move to LA!
I’m sure we all remember when the Half-Blood Prince release was pushed back 6 months. It looks like there is a release date change for Deathly Hallows as well, but this time it is a good change! Deathly Hallows Part I will be released on April 19th!! That’s right, 7 months earlier than expected!
And also, as Mugglenet has posted, there will be a THIRD movie for Deathly Hallows! This is because WB just wants to make some more money out of Potter before it dies forever.
I don’t normally post things like this, but since this is such a big announcement I figured I should. Emma Watson and long time boyfriend Jay Barrymore are set to be married! They are waiting until Emma has graduated from Brown University so it will be a long engagement.
They will be married in France, where Emma lived the first few years of her life. We will not be posting photos or anything else from the wedding when it happens.
As you may have seen, many gossip columns were recently reporting that the two had broken up, this was obviously untrue.
