OMFG Moment of the Week

fantastic  beasts

Holy freaking cow!!!  For those who haven’t heard, the fabulous J. K. Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series, for you rock dwellers) will be penning a screenplay based on her anthology: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  Warner Bros. came to her about the idea and rumor has it this could become a SERIES.  The film(s) will take place in New York City 70 years or so before the Boy Who Lived…you know, lived.  The star, unsurprisingly if you check the picture above, will be Newt Scamander and will chronicle his travels discovering and documenting the fantastic beasts he encounters.  APPARENTLY there will be some “familiar faces” which has caused me to experience an utter and complete NERDGASM.  Allow me to count down the days until I get to see this baby on the big screen.  Too bad I’ll be counting for at least 2 years….sigh.  But until then, I’ll keep holding out hope for that 8th Harry Potter book.  I mean come on, it’s going to happen.  No one wants to buy or read the other stuff Rowling spins out.  Which is not to say it’s bad, of course.  It’s just not Harry Potter.  Sorry, Jo.

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
