2014 Quidditch World Cup - New Magical Creatures

If you're a member of Pottermore, you may have noticed that JK Rowling has been writing "live coverage" reports of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup (as Ginny Potter for the Daily Prophet, with quotes from Magizoologist Rolf Scamander, Newt's grandson).

If you've signed in, you can go straight to this page to read the full Daily Prophet entry!

In it, we find out about four new (to us!) magical creatures from around the world, which are:

 

Dukuwaqa - A shapeshifter that can transform from shark to man. It lives in warm ocean & is a native of Fiji.

Selma - A gigantic lake serpent that devours both human flesh and fish. It resides in the icy, freshwater lakes of Norway.

Curupiras - Red-haired, forest-dwelling dwarves whose feet point backwards & who protect fellow creatures whom they feel are under threat from humans. Native of Brazil.

Sasabonsans - Nigerian, vampiric, spindle-legged creatures.

Feathers And Flight Event

On Friday April 4th, the Feathers And Flight event began at Warner Bros Studio Tour in Leavesden and thanks to Megan for the tickets, we were in attendance! 

 

The event runs in the tour from now up until April 27th (so there's plenty of time for you to go see it!) and gives you an insight into how the animals were trained to act in the Harry Potter films (and how they will be for Fantastic Beasts).

First up, we had a Q&A session with Julie Tottman and Guillaume Grange, the head animal trainers on set. You can read the full Q&A by clicking here

 

 

Q - Are any of the animals going to be working on the new movies? The Fantastic Beasts ones?

Julie - Not these particular - well, actually, I can't say for sure but most of the original Harry Potter ones are retired apart from the birds, so possibly some birds, but havn't had that call yet, waiting for that!

 

I also spoke to Val Jones, the featherologist, about whether they would be using the Hippogriffs they had already built, or would they need to make new ones for Fantastic Beasts. She said (if there are any Hippogriffs in the new movies) that new ones would have to be made. 

"Not looking forward to that call! They were very hard to do!"

 

Apart from that, you get to meet some of the owls that were trained for the movies and some of the equipment used to train them.

It is a brilliant insight into just how complex it is to teach some of the animals things you barely even think about when watching a movie & makes you wonder how they'll do Fantastic Beasts!

Warner Bros Studio Tour Showcase

This past weekend, MinaLima, the graphic designers from the Harry Potter movies, had a showcase in the Warner Bros Studio Tour to mark the studio's second anniversary.

As the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them book was on show, we were in attendance!

Another thing of note - we asked MinaLima themselves and found out that the 'Martino Frolic' trophy in the studio is not going to be a character, but was simply an ode to a friend (disappointing but good to know!).

Also, we were told they know nothing so far about Fantastic Beasts or whether the book cover design will change.

Fantastic Beasts Movie To Be Filmed In England

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is to be filmed in Warner Bros Studio, Leavesden! 

Whilst Newt's journey is set to begin in New York, it doesn't seem likely he'll stay there for very long. 

At Warner Bros. studio tour today I spoke to a few staff members who told me that they were told Fantastic Beasts is definitely going to be filmed in the studio lot, though they weren't told when filming begins!
