Your Latest Online Resource for All Things Harry Potter
Welcome to Harry Potter Web, your latest and most recent remembering fan and resource site for one of the biggest and most influencing book and movie saga, the Harry Potter Saga. Our site aims to provide you with the latest news on the movie's crew and actors and a huge collection of images and information on the actors, the saga's plots and characters.
Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) stopped by the BuzzFeed office to challenge unsuspecting Harry Potter fans to a new invented game: The Surprise Staring Contest.
So, as the headline already tells you, Rupert participated in BuzzFeed‘s new favorite game, The Surprise Staring Contest. The rules to play by are pretty simple, it’s just like the good old game you knew growing up: first person to blink, loses.
Except in this version of the game, BuzzFeed employees are led into a room blindfolded, unaware of the celebrity they’re about to have a staring contest with. Needless to say, these Harry Potter fans were barely able to keep it together when they were suddenly staring into the eyes of Ron Weasley himself.
As hard as they tried, Rupert must’ve drunk some Felix Felicis potion because he didn’t lose ONCE. By the way, while talking to Rupert, he revealed that he’d only JUST watched the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. He went on to explain behind-the-scenes that, while he hates watching himself on film, he felt “far enough removed” from himself as an 11-year-old, thus he could now enjoy watching it.
New promotional images of the cast and a brand new production still of Claudia Kim as Nagini have been released and we’re more than glad to share them with you on our photo gallery.
By the way, we do not subscribe to the accusation against J.K. Rowling about the racist note in Fantastic Beasts due to the fact that Nagini is played by an Asian actress. Ridiculous! That’s all we have to say to that.
Royal Mail has officially produced Harry Potter stamps.
So, if you’re owl is delayed or lazy just for once, you are now able to send your post and letters like muggles do, but with an additional small touch of magic. This means that they include hidden details that are only visible under ultraviolet light.
A new set of stamps have been produced by Royal Mail to celebrate the Harry Potter saga – with secret details that require a touch of wizardry to uncover. There are 15 stamps in total which feature characters including Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley and Neville Longbottom. Modes of transport from the films such as the Hogwarts Express, Hagrid’s enchanted motorbike, the flying Ford Anglia and the Knight Bus are also included.
Philip Parker of Royal Mail, said: ‘The Harry Potter movies continue to thrill and delight audiences of all ages.
“The goal with our stamps is to capture the excitement of the Wizarding World and the heroism of the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.”
The new stamps are available in post offices from October 16 and can be pre-purchased online on their online store.
We also added the first looks of the stamps as images to our photo gallery. Enjoy!
Actress Claudia Kim finally breaks the silence about playing Nagini in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
As the final trailer for The Crimes of Grindelwald just revealed, a big name from the Harry Potter books is a major part of the new Fantastic Beasts film. And yes, you’ve read correctly: the name you’re so familiar with is Nagini.
Until now, Warner Bros. hasn’t disclosed the name of the character played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim in the movie. Kim is none other than Nagini, a circus performer with a unique power who years later becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty killer serpent and Horcrux. Check out the video above where Kim, after keeping this secret for more than a year, is finally allowed to publicly speak her character’s name for the first time.
In the new film, Nagini is a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles.
Kim says Nagini is far from the villain one might expect from a character who, after all, eventually kills Severus Snape. “It will be so interesting to see another side of Nagini,” Kim tells EW. “You’ve only seen her as a Horcrux. In this, she’s a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live. She wants to stay a human being and I think that’s a wonderful contrast to the character.”
The final official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been released.
I really suggest you simply go and see it for yourselves. The final trailer easily the darkest one yet and actually contains a couple big surprises. The headline coming out of this is that Claudia Kim’s character has been revealed and it’s a major name in the Harry Potter universe. The South Korean actress is playing Nagini — a human “Maledictus” who eventually becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty snake. As we meet Nagini, she’s a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles. Check out EW’s exclusive new interview with Kim talking about her character here.
Another reveal: We see a glimpse of a flashback showing Dumbledore and Grindelwald back while they were students. That’s right, we now will have an even younger Dumbledore! It’s a brief shot in the trailer as they both touch the Mirror of Erised.
The trailer is also stuffed with magical action as an ensemble of characters prepare to contend with the dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) following his escape from prison while being transferred to Europe. Grindelwald begins to gather followers using both seductive logic and menacing force.
Just ahead of the release of the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald TODAY, a batch of nine new character posters has been released for the upcoming film on Twitter by the movie’s official UK account. Each poster features a profile shot of the movie’s characters with text that notes something of interest about the characters.
We added the posters in high quality to our photo gallery. Enjoy and stay tuned for more to come. Especially the trailer.

Today, Harry Potter Web wishes a very special and happy birthday to Tom Felton, also known as Draco Malfoy to us Potterheads.
Fans have known and followed Tom for years, some even before he had entered the world of Harry Potter in 2001 as Harry’s rival at school, Draco Malfoy. Since then he’s been known not only for his outstanding acting projects, but also as a very talented singer/musician and activist. He does not only make an outstanding impression when it comes to his professional career, but fans keep loving him for his caring and loveable personality.
Today, September 22, we wish him only the best of everything on his 31st birthday. Stay as you are.
Author J.K. Rowling confirmed the theory about Hermione pronouncing her name in the fourth book to prevent her readers from continuing to mispronounce it.
“It’s LeviOsa, not LeviosAR!” – Hermione Granger’s character is well known for correcting a pronunciation or two, such as one of her most iconic moments where she schooled Ron Weasley on the levitation spell. It was not only characters in the books that mispronounced spells or even names, but also fans and readers of the book series. Many readers were saying Hermione all sorts of ways before the fourth book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released and J.K. Rowling included a passage about the correct pronunciation. It looks like J.K. Rowling has a bit of Hermione in her, as the author just confirmed that she added it in to avoid any more confusion for readers.
A tweet from a fan brought up a long-time theory regarding a passage in the fourth book where Viktor Krum kept pronouncing her name as Her-my-own. The heroine corrected him and fans everywhere, by announcing it as Her-my-oh-nee slowly and clearly.
J.K. Rowling responded to the fan’s tweet, confirming that her intentions here were to school readers on how to say her name above anything else.
