Move over World Cup, The 2014 Quidditch Cup is what we’re really into.
Over the weekend, Bulgaria was up against Brazil for the title and Rita Skeeter (author JK Rowling) was live-blogging the whole thing alongside Ginny Potter.
Here are some of the highlights we found out from Rita’s article:
– The Potter family all supported Bulgaria and wore red, except for Albus who wore green for Brazil, as Chaser Gonçalo Flores was a favourite of his.
– Bill Weasley sat in between Teddy Lupin and daughter Victoire, who are dating (and went on to still be dating three years later in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows epilogue) to keep them apart during the Quidditch World Cup, which didn’t last very long (the game, or keeping the two teens apart).
– Albus Potter nearly fell off his VIP box at the game when his favourite player, Brazilian Chaser Gonçalo Flores, scored the first points of the game, but was saved by Uncle Ron. His brother James laughed at the ordeal.
– Neville is Albus’s godfather
– Teddy accidentally punched Victoire on the nose while cheering the Seekers on, but they were fine, as moments later they were seen snuggling up together.
– The final score: BULGARIA 170 – BRAZIL 60; Viktor Krum, 38, is the oldest player in competition.

Another sad passing to report…
Harry Potter actor Dave Legeno, who is known as werewolf Fenrir Greyback, has died while hiking in Death Valley, Calif., TMZ reports.
Apparently, Mr. Legeno‘s body was found by a pair of hikers on Sunday in an area so remote that a CHP helicopter had to be called in to remove it.
The Inyo County Sheriff’s Department says that Mr. Legeno “died of heat related issues … and may have been dead for 3-4 days before his body was discovered.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Anyone else wanting to see the creatures from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? We know where they are!
They’re in the Magical Menagerie shop in Diagon Alley inside Universal Orlando’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, according to Alan Gilmore, the art director for the Wizarding World park projects and several Harry Potter films.
Speaking with USAToday, Mr. Gilmore shared that these beasts are THE beasts from the upcoming film trilogy, based on JK Rowling‘s books. It’s also the first time the strange looking animals have been visualized.
“It will give visitors a peek at the next wave of Harry Potter,” he said.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is expected to hit theaters on November 18th, 2016.
JK Rowling just totally made our day by publishing a brand new Harry Potter short story on Pottermore.com!
All grown up in the new story, the 34-year-old Harry Potter has “threads of silver” in his black hair.
The story features married couple Harry and Ginny attending the Quidditch World Cup with their married best friends Ron and Hermoine.
The article is written as an article by Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter, who was featured in the original books as well.
Head on over to Pottermore to read the whole story!
