Johnny Depp Resigns from Fantastic Beasts; Third Film Pushed Back
Posted by Megs

Johnny Depp has posted a statement to his Instagram account announcing that he has resigned from the Fantastic Beasts films at Warner Bros. request. Depp is still in the middle of a legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard and her allegations of abuse.

On Monday Johnny lost a libel case against the Sun newspaper. In his statement he says he will be appealing that decision to prove the allegations are untrue. His full statement may be read below.

In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement.

Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty.

I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days.

Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request.

Finally, I wish to say this.

The surreal judgement of the court in the U.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.

My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.

Thank you for reading

Johnny Depp

Hogwarts in the Snow Returning to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – with MORE Snow!
Posted by Megs

A fan favorite feature is returning to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London this year – Hogwarts in the Snow! They’ve even added more snow this year with visitors able to experience Diagon Alley covered in snow. In previous years a small area of Diagon Alley was used to show how they made Harry’s invisibility cloak footprints, but this year the whole set will be decked out in snow from the cobblestones to the store fronts!

Fans of the Harry Potter films are invited to get into the festive spirit as Warner Bros. Studio Tour London’s annual Hogwarts in the Snow feature returns! For the very first time, from Saturday 14th November – Sunday 17th January 2021, visitors will be able to explore another of their favourite sets in the snow as Diagon Alley undergoes a wintery transformation.

New for 2020, the cobbled stones and magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley will be given a festive makeover, draped in layers of filmmaking snow. During filming, many different types of ‘snow’ were used, each selected for its ability to crunch under foot, float like falling flakes or glisten in the light like ice, but never melt. The same techniques will be used by filmmakers to cover the magical shopping street this year. Though Diagon Alley was not seen in the snow, the same set was used for parts of Hogsmeade during the wintery scenes that see Harry make use of his invisibility cloak to join the school trip without permission.

A popular fan favourite, the Hogwarts castle model will also be transformed with a dusting of snow again this year. During filming, a member of the crew climbed aboard an elevated work platform and sprinkled the mixture of granulated paper and grains of salt onto the model by hand with a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake. The same process takes place at the Studio Tour every festive season.

As visitors step foot onto the original stone floor of the Great Hall, they will be welcomed with wreaths, garlands and trees topped with witches on miniature broomsticks. The long dining tables will be dressed as they were for the seasonal feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, complete with SFX flaming Christmas puddings and prop versions of the mouth-watering roast turkeys and hams studded with cherries.

In addition, many more of the iconic sets housed at the Studio Tour will receive a festive makeover. The Gryffindor Common Room and Boys’ Dormitory will be decorated with the original props including handmade Christmas cards, some of which were created by the cast members during production. Fireplaces throughout the Studio Tour (including those in the Leaky Cauldron and Great Hall) will be ‘lit’ with special effects fire, created by John Richardson and the SFX team using a combination of water vapour and lighting effects.

Hogwarts in the Snow runs from 14th November 2020 until 17th January 2021 and tickets are now available to purchase via www.wbstudiotour.co.uk. Tickets must be pre-booked, and all extra features are included in the ticket price.

COVID-19 Update: To help keep everyone safe, a number of additional measures and changes have been made to the Studio Tour experience. The updates are designed to prioritise social distancing and enhanced cleaning. Visitors are advised to familiarise themselves with the Studio Tour’s safety measures before visiting: https://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk/updates/safety-measures/

Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley Hosting Harry Potter Quiz Benefiting KIDS Charity
Posted by Megs

KIDS, a children’s disability charity, is launching a new and exclusive Harry Potter Quiz hosted by Harry Potter and The Cursed Child stars Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley! The quiz will be officially launching on 10th October and will be available to play online at any time.

There will be eight rounds with five multiple choice questions, covering all books in the Harry Potter series.  The quiz is free but is raising money for KIDS and all players are encouraged to donate for taking part.

You can donate by texting “HPQUIZ 10” to 70085 to donate £10 (or use 5 for £5, 20 for £20, etc.) or Donate through the charity’s website to use a credit or debit card. Donating to the cause will help in many ways:

2020 has been a year like no other. Everyone’s lives have been affected by COVID-19 and a new vocabulary has entered our language. From lockdown to self-isolation, from support bubbles to home-working, life has changed in a way we could not have imagined at the start of the year. It has been the most challenging of times and none more so than for families with a disabled child. Your donations will help KIDS to deliver our services safely and to those who need it most.

We aim to ensure disabled children from birth to 25 have the opportunity to learn, play, build friendships, gain confidence and improve their wellbeing and we provide vital time, emotional and practical support to parents and siblings.  From virtual home learning services to short break provision and specialist adventure playgrounds, KIDS is still here.

£20 could pay for a new bean bag to help support a child who cannot sit, or could fund a set of sand and water toys which help with sensory stimulation and social interaction in one of our sensory rooms.
