J.K. Rowling created a play for Harry Potter fans dying to know what happens next to everyone's favorite wizarding trio. 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is set to take place 19 years after the last Harry Potter book. According to the play's website:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.


Now, even if you can't make it to see the play performed, you can read it all in one sitting if you want. Pottermore just announced that the script will be published on July 31st.

Author J.K. Rowling is known for her scathing quips toward people who say things that are sexist, racist, homophobic or generally awful. Also she wrote the very, very famous Harry Potter Series.  

This time she tweeted back to a Donald Trump spokeswoman who made a zenophobic remark regarding Americans born outside the U.S. who are (or would like to be) leaders of the country. 

Ouch, Katrina Pierson. You need a freezing spell for that burn?

By Grabthar's Hammer what a devastating loss. Esteemed British Actor Alan Rickman has passed away at 69 after a battle with cancer.


Rickman was known by many for his exceptional portrayal of the complex and conflicted villain Severus Snape in the films adapted from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books.


But real-talk the strapping lad could make most anything epic.


From his acclaimed role as criminal mastermind Hans Gruber in Die Hard:


To that time when director, Kevin Smith, recognized he'd happened upon a British stud who had a voice deeper and richer than a Ghirardelli 98% Dark Chocolate bar. Yeah the voice of a god. Literally:


To what was one of his arguably best roles as Colonel Brandon in Ang Lee's 'Sense and Sensibility':


Throughout his career Rickman continually demonstrated an awe-inspiring range, while at the same time establishing himself as something of a legendary 'bad guy.' Let's get real though, his bit in Galaxy Quest — the epic sci-fi romp — kind of takes the cake.


RIP Alan Rickman, you'll be fiercely missed.

The most recent exciting addition to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London calendar is a three course Valentine's Day meal plated and served within Hogwarts Great Hall, which is also set to include a hearty supply of Butterbeer, a tour of the studio, and a free wand.


Perhaps the biggest catch here is this meal's about to wipe out your account at Gringotts Wizarding Bank.


But hey, you could always hit up Harry Potter for a friendly loan, right?


No really though, the whole show costs £247.50 ($357) per person, or £495 ($714) for two people.

A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.

His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.

In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.

What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'

As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.

After yesterday's casting news of a black Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, fans took to Twitter and began riffing on other characters in the series with different nationalities. JK Rowling even joined in to express her fondness for a few with praise and retweets.

Somebody draw these, stat!
