Magic Is In The air…

Look (UK) - - &RELAX -

In a mat­ter of days, Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them will hit our screens – and we’re wingardium levio-so ex­cited. Think Draco af­ter he was turned into a fer­ret, jump­ing up and down ex­cited. Not only be­cause the film stars Ed­die Red­mayne and, well, have you seen his face? But also be­cause it sounds epic. Based on the Hog­warts text­book, the film fol­lows Newt Sca­man­der – a ma­g­i­zo­ol­o­gist (some­one who stud­ies mag­i­cal crea­tures). Once you’ve seen the film, you’ll need to plan your next HP fix. Luck­ily, we have the per­fect list…

Turn your smart­phone into a magic wand…

Stop ev­ery­thing – the guys at Google have com­pleted our lives. Sim­ply say ‘Ok, google’ into your An­droid and cast your spell. Try ‘Si­len­cio’ to si­lence your phone, or ‘Lu­mos Max­ima’ to ac­ti­vate your torch. Mind = blown.

Book a visit to Hog­warts In The Snow

What’s more mag­i­cal than Hog­warts? Prob­a­bly Hog­warts at Christ­mas – in the snow. Think Christ­mas trees, the Great Hall dec­o­rated with wreaths and feasts and, of course, a blan­ket of film­mak­ing snow. Who said white Christ­mases no longer ex­ist?

Try Harry Pot­ter yoga

Mug­gles in Amer­ica have em­braced mind­ful­ness, Harry Pot­ter-style. We’re talk­ing Harry Pot­ter-themed poses (Whomp­ing Wil­low) and even com­ple­men­tary wands. While yoga was never on the Hog­warts cur­ricu­lum, we’re pretty sure it would have been circa 26.

You can now ‘at­tend’ Hog­warts

This is not a drill. Thanks to fel­low su­per­fans in France, you can now repli­cate life at Hog­warts. Pre­pare to play Quid­ditch, ex­pe­ri­ence the Sort­ing Hat and brew po­tions. You won’t need to visit Di­agon Al­ley be­fore­hand, ei­ther – but only be­cause there’s one on site. Be right back, just off to brush up on our French…

Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them is out Fri­day 18 Novem­ber

Snow makes Hog­warts even more spell­bind­ing
