Sit back and watch this magical, wonderful thing.

Fans Joan Kamberaj and Peter Heacock animated this beautiful short film, which shows Hogwarts being built out of folded paper from The Prisoner of Azkaban.

It's a loving tribute that, according to the description, took them a great deal of work.

We are huge fans JK Rowling. So much so, that we built Hogwarts from the pages of "Prisoner of Azkaban". Frame by frame, and over one month of work, we are proud to share our first short film with all of you.

Brb. Going to King's Cross, platform 9 and 3/4.

Harry Potter fans can't really give the shirts off their backs to help a house elf, but they're getting close.

Dobby the house elf from the wizarding series of books has his own display in the Warner Bros. Studio tour, featuring him encased in glass, with his eyes closed for some reason.

Well intrepid, altruistic people saw a chance to free the little guy.

Vulture noticed the pictures and wrote about the impromptu jail break

Friends of the house elf have festooned one of his exhibit cases with their socks, a nod to both Dobby's HP story line, as well as the fact that house elves are granted independence if they are given an item of clothing.

J.K. Rowling retweeted the initial mention, because she has a Twitter problem, and the idea began to spread.

So, basically, if you go on the Warner Bros. Studio tour and it smells bad, you know why.

You think you've seen and heard it all, Harry Potter fan. Well, you are wrong.

You must check out this Indian version of some of the most notable songs from the Harry Potter movies. It's really something striking that makes the whole of John Williams' themes seem even more magical.

According to the video's description:

This Indian fusion covers five beautiful scores from the Harry Potter Movie Series-

A Window To The Past : Harry Potter and the Prisoners of Askaban,Harry Potter Main Theme, Hedwig's Theme : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Face of Voldemort : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Epilogue - Leaving Hogwarts : Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

The Indian Jam Project is a collaborative platform where different musicians come together to play Indian Adaptations of Western TV Show Theme Songs/ Movie Scores. The adaptations are arranged and composed by Tushar Lall (Founder), and are performed together with some insanely talented set of musicians.

Someday, we should probably have an intervention with J.K. Rowling over how much time she spends on Twitter. There are other things she could be doing than engaging with the Harry Potter hordes. Today isn't that day.

Today is the day in which she corrects our mispronunciation of He Who Must Not Be Named.

Since 'mort' (with a silent 'T') is the French word for 'death', that's probably why it's supposed to be pronounced that. But who knows. I'm sure Rowling will go into greater Twitter detail in the coming weeks and months.

Everyone probably started calling him 'You Know Who' because no one could pronounce his damn name.

If you need another reminder that time's flat circle will eventually roll over and crush you, it might as well be in the form of Harry Potter news.

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the public's introduction to Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as the three precocious, magical children who found adventure, friendship and eventually love in the halls of Hogwarts.

Seriously, 15 years.

You probably have memories of this, don't you? Meaning you are even older than old.

Here's part of the original press release that preceded the filming of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

ATTENTION ALL MUGGLES! Director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have discovered their Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from the thousands of children who cast their names into the hat to play the roles. Young actor Daniel Radcliffe will be the film's Harry, with newcomers Rupert Grint and Emma Watson taking on the roles of Ron and Hermione, Harry's best friends at Hogwarts, in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming adaptation of the first in the best-selling series of Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling.

The hashtag #15yearsofDanEmmaRupert has sprung up around the anniversary with people sharing their memories and their appreciation for the wizarding trio.

By the by, this is what they look like now:

And you're probably older. Much older.

Sorry about the reminder that death is hurtling towards you at lightning speed.

For the third time, Simon Pegg flexes his nerd muscles to appear on The Tonight Show as a sloppy drunk Ron Weasley.

The schtick is the same as it ever was: poor Ron Weasley has turned to drink after the world only cares about the exploits of the Boy Who Lived.

His heart's at least in the right place as he shows up on late night to wish his best friends a happy 35th birthday.

Things even have taken a turn for the worse as it appears Hermione left the penniless ginger (again) for someone, probably a Slytherin, else.

Jimmy Fallon tries to both cheer up the soused wizard and protect his talk show audience from Weasley's desire to show his junk.

Humor ensues.

The last time Drunk Ron Weasley appeared on The Tonight Show, it went just about as well.

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed that Albus Dumbledore was gay back in 2007 at Carnegie Hall, but apparently some fans still can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

On Twitter Tuesday, a girl named Ana Kocovic reached out to Rowling and asked about the decision to make the Hogwarts headmaster a homosexual.

“Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter,” Kocovic wrote. “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

And just like magic, Rowling responded with the most perfect tweet ever.

The girl ended up thanking her and apparently deleting all of her tweets. Her profile now says her name is Gellert Grindelwald, whom Rowling previously said was Dumbledore’s love interest.

“Amazing answer,” she replied. “Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!”
