  • Futur3Fo3

    Why the need to change Muggle to No-Maj?! Bad form, JK, bad form.

    • BOBBY

      She didn’t CHANGE it. No Maj is an American slang term for Muggle. Muggle is UK.

      • Futur3Fo3

        LOL…changing it to fit American slang IS bad form, just ask all the Muggles that visit the UK in Orlando ;P

        • In Ireland I have a mobile. In America I have a cell phone. Tomato, Tomato, etc, etc.

          • Futur3Fo3

            Sure hope other things like mudblood isn’t changed to filth-plaz.

          • Well, yeah. I’m okay with this change, but anything else’d be stretching it. Jo should know that by now, given all the hate on the no-maj.


    Ezra Miller !! wow, this guy is a phenomenal actor. Remember his role in “Perks..” or how about “We need to talk about Kevin” His presence is a definite plus for these films.
