Stranger Things season 4 is turning out to be one of the series' strongest seasons ever, with writers and creators, the Duffer brothers, finishing the scripts for all episodes before filming for the first time in Stranger Things history (due to the pandemic), and now they're bringing on actors from the Harry Potter and Game of Thrones franchises to spice up our Hawkins drama and mystery.
7 books, 7 Horcruxes, 8 films, and 3 objects of death. Let admiring the differences between Book and the film of Deathly Hallows.
As much as we love the Harry Potter films, all Potter fans can pretty much agree that the, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was very disappointing. Out of all the Potter films this one has the lowest rating on Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 37%.
According to CNBC it also has the lowest bow office haul, with a total of $160 Million dollars, which may seem like a lot, but when it comes to Potter it’s not even scratching the surface. Its first film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, holds a box office haul of $814 million, and before that, the final Potter film, Deathly Hallows Part 2 hauled $1.3 billion.

The internet is full of strange and wonderful things, and it seems like everyone online has more talent in their pinkie than I do in my whole body. I love it. There’s a wonderfully large community for book cover redesigns, and every cover re-designers should probably have professional book design jobs. You may ask, will we ever have enough designs for Harry Potter dust jackets? These artists don’t seem to think so.
1. Art Deco Redesign by asheaths on Tumblr
These are simple but punchy, and they would make beautiful display copies. The shelf envy would be so real. Designs for the spines weren’t included, but even stacked they’d be gorgeous.

2. Stylized German Book Covers by Olly Moss
These designs may seem more traditional, but don’t let the clean simplicity of the art style fool you. Through details and color, these covers convey the feeling of each book like you’re reading them again for the first time.

3. Glow In The Dark Cutouts by Kincso Nagy
The piece de resistance—cutout and luminous, these copies glow inside and out. Beautiful cutouts back by luminescent paint, popup illustrations, and pretty matte covers make these outrageously beautiful. I want a hundred.

Toy maker WOW Stuff is making an invisibility cloak that will be compatible with a free phone app. The cloak itself has a green screen effect that when viewed on the app will turn whoever wears it invisible on their phone’s camera.
Now, fans of the Harry Potter series can recreate some of their favorite Harry Potter scenes with the cloak, from when Harry first got the cloak in the first book to when he ambushed Malfoy and his friends in the third.
There are two versions of the cloak: a $70 version with a foldaway phone stand.
And an $80 version with a tripod and a serpent pattern embroidered on the cloak.
The toy goes on sale this August.
