I could not be happier to announce that Starkid is going to be producing a Third Potter musical!  Nick Lang announced it a few nights ago at a charity event that the rumors were true!  I had heard for a while that another show was in the works, but since Darren Criss has been so busy with Glee, and the just announced stint on Broadway replacing Dan Radcl...

But if your ready to be spoiled then read on!...

The End is Here: 'Hallows' Delivers an Epic End to Potter

Posted by Christina Cooper on July 14, 2011 at 5:24 PM Comments comments (2)



Like most fans, I looked at the final Harry Potter film as the end of my childhood. I spent days dreading having to go to the final film, not really read to say goodbye. But, after getting to attend a special screening last night via the amazing Geoff Boucher (Hero Complex), I was blown away by how abs...

Saying Goodbye to Harry Potter

Posted by Christina Cooper on July 13, 2011 at 1:02 PM Comments comments (2)

            


How do I start this? It doesn't seem right. Harry has been with me for as long as I can remember. Like so many in my generation, my parents began reading Harry Potter to me when I was in first grade. It seems like just yesterday when I turned 11, and wondered why I didn't receive my Hogwarts letter in the mail. It doesn't seem right that after fourteen years, I'm suddenl...

Harry Potter Reread: The Chamber of Secrets

Reading this book took me far longer than I thought it would.  I breezed through Philosopher's Stone, but found myself struggling to get through Chamber of Secrets.  It's not the length, because as we know, Chamber, is one of the shortest books.  But it's still a really important book to the series as a wh...
