2nd Annual "Dobby’s Sock Drive" Collecting New Socks for the Midnight Mission Benefitting Los Angeles’ Homeless Community

From Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army --

The Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army, the second largest Harry Potter fan group in the world since 2008, is once again using its popularity to give back to the community. This is the 2nd Annual "Dobby's Sock Drive” which began on Friday, October 13th and will run through Friday November 10th, collecting socks at local comic book stores for The Midnight Mission, an institution providing support to Los Angeles’ homeless population.

The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is requesting new, unused socks be donated in men's, women's and children's sizes, which will be distributed by The Midnight Mission to the Los Angeles’ homeless before the cold winter months. During Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army’s first “Dobby’s Sock Drive,” over 1,000 pairs of new socks were collected, which, according to The Midnight Mission is a much needed donation item often forgotten about.

This year The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army has sock collection boxes at over a dozen comic book stores throughout Los Angeles County including the famous Meltdown Comics in Hollywood and The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach. Several of the participating comic book stores are providing special discounts and free gifts with any Dobby’s Sock Drive new sock donation at their stores (list below).

For anyone not familiar with the Harry Potter narrative, Dobby was an enslaved house elf that was only set free by having been accidentally presented with socks by his owner. Dobby, one of the most beloved characters in the series, subsequently became obsessed with socks, hence the name of the charity drive.

About Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army

Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army, lovingly known as the LADA, is a Harry Potter fan group with over 2,200 members. For almost a decade, the 21+ group have been holding for Harry Potter themed meet ups including the award-winning annual Harry Potter Roller Skating Night at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale and the annual Dressed to the 9 ¾ Harry Potter vintage dress up day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As the group’s popularity soars, it’s turned towards giving back to the community in the spirit of what brings us all together: Harry Potter.

Joining the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is easy by visiting the Meetup website and by signing up for the group. Meet ups are held monthly and occasionally all ages are permitted. Anyone interested in joining the award winning book club, or even taking place in Harry Potter themed cooking competitions, trivial game nights or costumed events will be glad they joined.

Harry Potter: Original Motion Picture Soundtracks I-V Availabele As Double Vinyl Picture Discs

From Rhino Entertainment --

The Harry Potter film series is one of the most successful cinematic franchises of all time and it continues to inspire a passionate and growing following around the world. One key that helped bring author J.K. Rowling's books to life on the big screen was the evocative music created for the films by great composers like John Williams, Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper.

This fall, Rhino will transport you to J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World with a limited edition boxed set that features the soundtracks to the series' first five films pressed on vinyl picture discs (10 LPs). HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V will be available on November 17, and is available for pre-order here: https://rh-ino.co/hpsndtrks

Each soundtrack is contained in a gatefold sleeve that is die-cut on both sides. The images used for the picture discs are stills taken from the related films. The one exception is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which also features an etching on the last side of the LP. The set also includes a download card so the music can be downloaded.

HARRY POTTER: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS I-V includes soundtracks for: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).

The soundtracks to the first three films were all composed by John Williams, who is responsible for some of the most popular film scores in history. One song that debuted on the Philosopher's Stone soundtrack -- "Hedwig's Theme" -- became the main musical theme for the series and appears in all of the Harry Potter films.

Patrick Doyle composed the music for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). The film's soundtrack also features three songs by a fictional rock band featured in the story whose members include Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey of Pulp, and Jonny Greenwood and Phil Selway of Radiohead.

Composer Nicholas Hooper created the music for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007). It was performed by the London Chamber Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.

Casting Continues on the New “Fantastic Beasts” Adventure Set in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World

From Warner Bros. --

Additions have been made to the cast of the all-new adventure set in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, the second of five feature films in the series that began with “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” The film, which is currently in production, is being directed by David Yates.

Among the actors who have joined the international ensemble cast are: Carmen Ejogo, returning to the role of Seraphina Picquery; Wolf Roth as Spielman; Victoria Yeates as Bunty; Derek Riddell as Torquil Travers; Poppy Corby-Tuech as Rosier; Cornell S. John as Arnold Guzman; and Brontis Jodorowsky as Nicolas Flamel. Fiona Glascott and Jessica Williams have also been cast in roles to be revealed.

Reprising their roles from the worldwide hit “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” are Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), who stars as wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander; Katherine Waterston as Auror Tina Goldstein; Dan Fogler as No-Maj Jacob Kowalski; Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein; and Ezra Miller as Credence. Oscar nominee Johnny Depp (the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, “Finding Neverland”) returns as the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, and Oscar nominee Jude Law (“The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “Cold Mountain”) portrays Hogwarts professor Albus Dumbledore.

Rounding out the main cast are Zoë Kravitz as Leta Lestrange; Callum Turner as Theseus Scamander; Claudia Kim as a woman in a wizarding circus; William Nadylam as Yusuf Kama; Ingvar Sigurdsson as Grimmson; Ólafur Darri Ólafsson as Skender; and Kevin Guthrie as Abernathy.

J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald has made a dramatic escape and has been gathering more followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.

The film expands the wizarding world, moving from New York to London and on to Paris. There are also some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of the books and film series.

David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram are producing the film, with Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serving as executive producers.

Collaborating with Yates behind the scenes are: Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”); three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), three-time BAFTA Award-winning editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films, “State of Play”), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland”), Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Tim Burke (“Gladiator,” the “Harry Potter” films), and Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Christian Manz (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1”).

The new adventure is being filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, which has been the cinematic home of the Wizarding World since the first “Harry Potter” film.

Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
