James & Oliver Phelps ‘Fantastic Friends’ Coming to HBO Max
Posted by Megs

Fans who follow James and Oliver Phelps on social media will know they have been filming a travel show (sometimes with special Potter guests!) together. Fantastic Friends is a 6-part series with each episode clocking in at 1 hour in length. Producer Daniel Sharp has shared that the show was picked up by a few stations including HBO Max!

James and Oliver Phelps enchanted audiences worldwide as mischievous but loveable twins Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise. After ten years as part of one of the most iconic film casts in history, James and Oliver have continued to capture the world’s imagination, travelling the globe on magical adventures.

The show will begin airing on HBO Max in July (date TBD,) Bell Media’s Crave in Canada on June 17 and on TVNZ in New Zealand on August 6. The brothers are joined by Evanna Lynch, Bonnie Wright, Luke Youngblood, Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Sophie Skelton (Outlander) and Haley Joel Osment.

According to RapidTVNews, Dash Pictures is in production on a second six-part series of Fantastic Friends.

The episode breakdown is as follows:

St Lucia
Maisie Williams played Arya Stark in the epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps gate-crash Maisie’s relaxing holiday on the stunning Caribbean island of Saint Lucia; expect swimming and sailing challenges, stunning views, heroic hikes, plenty of rum, and a chocolate massage.

Bonnie Wright played Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies and is now a writer, director and advocate for the environment. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps track Bonnie down to the eco-haven of Iceland; hanging out with whales, exploring incredible caves, riding tiny horses, talking all-things Harry Potter, and trekking up an active volcano!

Luke Youngblood played Quiddich commentator Lee Jordan, the Weasley twins’ best friend in the Harry Potter movies. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps magicked Luke to the desert oasis of Dubai; where they’ll play with jetpacks, go deep diving, reminisce about Harry Potter, race speedboats and play an epic round of golf – the loser gets the bill!

Sophie Skelton plays Brianna MacKenzie in the hit fantasy series Outlander. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps interrupt Sophie’s chilled weekend getaway to Krakow in Poland; taking her to the Tatra mountains in search of adventure, river rafting, treacherous treks and the chance to explore an active salt mine.

Haley Joel Osment is an Oscar nominated acting superstar, known for his turns in The Sixth Sense, A.I. and Forrest Gump. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps find Hayley visiting the Austrian town of Innsbruck; they lure him into the mountains to discuss child stardom and enjoy an exciting cocktail of ski-based challenges, bone-rattling bobsledding, beer and… witchcraft. Yes, witchcraft.

In the space of two weeks, Evanna Lynch went from being a Harry Potter superfan to lighting up the film’s cast as whimsical teen-witch Luna Lovegood. In this episode, James and Oliver Phelps catch a “private” flight to Ireland to catch up with writer-actor-activist Evanna; the twins join her father and the rest of the Lynch clan in the Irish countryside for hurling, dancing, discussion of the Harry Potter movies, and a date with the spirits.

Cast Attending Wizarding World Hollywood Grand Opening Revealed
Posted by Megs

Pottermore has revealed some of the cast and crew from the Potter films that will be attending a Red Carpet Gala opening for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 5th.  Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, Evanna Lynch, James Phelps and Oliver Phelps along with composer John Williams will attend the Grand Opening event.

The attraction has been five years in the making, and features a stunning recreation of Hogwarts castle as well as Hogsmeade village.

Following in the footsteps of Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Japan, the Hollywood attraction will bring back some of the fans’ favourite rides, as well as a few new surprises.

The park officially opens on April 7th but is currently doing “soft openings” where fans can visit the park with limited rides and stores open.  Here’s a quick definition of a soft opening for those of you unfamiliar:

A soft opening is usually a less strenuous opening for the ride or attraction. It might not open at park open or might close before park close. It may open and close periodically throughout the day for minor adjustments or to run routine safety checks, although usually these closures are “soft” closures – they don’t clear the queue, they just cycle and empty cycle or stop the ride after everyone’s off for a moment or two. There may be private events, training or staffing requirements, repairs, media, or inspections that require the attraction be closed an entire day or more during this time. Certain effects or features might not be working yet.

Trailer for ‘Danny and the Human Zoo’ Featuring Evanna Lynch + Photo of Phelps Twins
Posted by Megs

BBC has released the trailer for the television film, Danny and the Human Zoo, which will be released later this year. Evanna Lynch plays Bridget O’Riordan, the girlfriend of main character Danny Fearon.

Danny’s world is a series of complex minefields which he has to negotiate: his home life – which his ebullient mother rules with an iron fist in an iron glove; his love life – where the Irish girl he’s in lust with won’t give him the time of day until he wins his first competition; and finally the ups and downs of his emerging career.

When Danny wins a talent competition at his local club it’s not long until he’s working the comedy circuit. Audiences can’t get enough, applauding as he effortlessly morphs into Mohammed Ali, Tommy Cooper and Frank Spencer, and eventually he hits the big time on TV – an unheard-of achievement for a young black boy.

But an unscrupulous manager takes advantage of Danny and forces him to star in a show, the ‘Musical Minstrel Cavalcade’. Danny hits rock bottom. Having made his name by becoming other people, Danny has to save himself by finding out who he really is.

The film also stars James and Oliver Phelps as Mr. Carter and, you guessed it, Mr. Carter. A photo of the two in costume may be seen below:
