“MuggleCast” Episode 278: “Hogwarts Goes Hollywood” now available!

Construction on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Los Angeles park continues as our MuggleCast hosts eagerly await its completion. An offer is reportedly officially on the table for actor Eddie Redmayne to play Newt Scamander. As usual, there are plenty of J.K. Rowling tweets to sort through, and your hosts wax nostalgic for the first time in a special segment called “Magical Memories.” All of that and more on this, episode 278 of MuggleCast.

On Episode 278, you will find discussion on:

    • The “Fantastic Beasts” script is reportedly finished, and Eddie Redmayne has been officially offered role of Newt Scamander!
    • Wizarding World Hollywood update: Hogwarts now visible from surrounding highways!
    • Expo Patronum! recap; our memories of London from 2004 and 2007
    • In this episode’s JKR Twitter update: Jo comforts a fan, names Moaning Myrtle, apologizes for killing Fred, talks Royal Baby, and gets called a terrible name (but takes it in stride)
    • Make the Music Connection: songs from the year of Jo’s birth!
    • This month in Harry Potter History
