can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

REPEAT: J.K. ROWLING IS WRITING A NEW MOVIE SET IN THE WIZARDING WORLD!!
“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” said Rowling, in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”
#CHECK OUT your differences in wand technique here #and how fluidly and casually Ron throws a curse in comparison to Harry and Hermione #Hermione has done the reading and is technically perfect of course #Elbow straight; wrist bent #Wand tip aligned with left sightline #left arm held loosely behind her for balance #Harry hasn’t ever done the reading #Grip too tight; elbow locked #Shoulders raised#Left elbow cranked in awkwardly against his body #Kids’ll imitate his awful technique#and Junior Aurors #it’ll make their parents nuts; don’t twist your neck like that I don’t care what Auror Potter does #When you save wizardkind you can hold your wand however you want #until then drop your shoulders #Ron’s been around wand users since birth #practiced with twigs and then his brothers’ wands #Look at how the movement flows from his center #the way he uses his whole body #throws out his opposite hand behind him to counterbalance the movement #Harry and Hermione get their wands into position and then throw the curse #Ron’s spell starts mid-motion because he knows his wand will be in position in time (via helenish)
