Add Some Magic to Your Holiday Season with Harry Potter Christmas Sweaters
Posted by Megs

The holidays are fast approaching and Merchoid has released its Officially licensed Harry Potter Christmas sweaters to get you into the festive spirit for 2019! The range includes House designs, replicas of the Weasley Sweaters and more!

Note: The sweaters and other products are on sale for Black Friday, scoop them up at great prices now!

Direct from Diagon Alley comes this year’s Hogwarts offerings! Naturally, each house has been represented to the highest standard. Along with the highly sought after house garments, you can now show your school spirit with the exclusively designed Hogwarts For The Holidays jumper, expressing the desire of many Wizards, Witches and Muggles who wish to eat their Christmas dinner in The Great Hall.

But that’s not all. The Merchoid House Elves have been busy, under the watchful eye of Mrs Weasley, to ensure that everyone can experience a little bit of Weasley Warmth this festive season with the iconic ‘H’ and ‘R’ jumpers. Now you can feel like one of the Weasley family.

The full range of Harry Potter Christmas Jumpers – as well as many other fandom-themed sweaters – are available to order on Merchoid’s website. And don’t forget to check out the rest of their Harry Potter collection!

Merchoid was kind enough to send us a couple of sweaters to test out and we are happy to tell you they’re great quality! Sometimes with these types of products, they fall victim to looks over quality but in this case, they look and feel great. I’m sure after a wash or two they will get even softer, always a plus.

The Harry Potter: I’d Rather Stay at Hogwarts Christmas Sweater is perfect for the fan who has a love of all the houses. You get a beautiful outline of Hogwarts castle along with all the house animals in a festive pattern.

This is a house of Ravenclaws, so when it came to choosing our house sweater the choice was easy – The Ravenclaw Knitted Christmas Sweater! It will be a fight for who gets to wear this gray and blue sweater, luckily we can share.

NOTE: If you are outside the UK shipping will be a bit slow, they estimate 10-15 days so be sure to order quickly if you want optimal wearing time for this year!

New Details on Fantastic Beasts 3 Revealed
Posted by Megs

In a new post on WizardingWorld.com, Warner Bros. has revealed some details on Fantastic Beasts 3. One of the biggest reveals was that the film will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This was actually confirmed a while ago but this is the “official” announcement.

Steve Kloves is listed as a co-writer along with J.K. Rowling for this third installment of the series. Previously J.K. Rowling was the only writer for the Fantastic Beasts films.

Eddie Redmayne will return as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald along with Ezra Miller (Credence/Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein).

The post also shares that Jessica Williams will have a bigger role in this film. Her character, Professor Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks, is a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was featured very briefly in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

The third installment of Fantastic Beasts will start production in Spring 2020 and will release on November 12, 2021.
