Everyone knows the four houses of Hogwarts: Braves, Snakes, Smarts, and Puffs. What? That’s not what you call them? The Harry Potter satire Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic does and it’s funnier than anything you’d find in the Weasley’s joke shop.

Lego's New Hogwarts Great Hall Set Is Going to Magically Drain My Wallet Lego's New Hogwarts Great Hall Set Is Going to Magically Drain My Wallet

This isn’t Lego’s first attempt at miniaturizing Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle (it’s at least the sixth) and at 878-pieces it’s not the largest version either.

Watch VFX Wizards Make All the Magic in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

It’s doubtful if any of the Harry Potter books could have been turned into movies without the benefit of modern visual effects techniques.

One of The Biggest Harry Potter Fanfics Still Holds Up In 2018 One of The Biggest Harry Potter Fanfics Still Holds Up In 2018

Fantastic Beasts 2's French Word for 'Muggle' Proves the Non-British Wizarding World Is Lazy as Hell Fantastic Beasts 2's French Word for 'Muggle' Proves the Non-British Wizarding World Is Lazy as Hell

The first Fantastic Beasts introduced us to the American wizarding world’s answer to “muggle” in the form of the ludicrous “no-maj,” a term that just makes it seems like America’s wizarding society was a little weird.
