We’re about a month away from our return to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world — or another corner of it, in another time, anyway. Although the world will feel somewhat familiar to fans of the Harry Potter series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is introducing a whole new cast of charming (and not-so-charming) characters that we’ll hopefully come to know and love throughout the trilogy. And this series of character posters should help you get better acquainted.

The very first Harry Potter movie opened 15 years ago next month. Fifteen years. A lot has changed in blockbuster movies over the past decade and a half – superheroes are now front and center, CG has advanced to remarkable degrees, and remakes, prequels and spin-offs are filling the movie theaters. But J.K. Rowling’s magical world was one of the most original series of its time. Before Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone opened on November 18, 2001, the only major movies for kids born in the ‘80s and ‘90s were animated films from Disney and Dreamworks. The 21st Century also brought with it the Star Wars prequels and the Lord of the Rings series, but Harry Potter introduced a whole new era of fantasy blockbusters for kids (Chronicles of Narnia, The Golden Compass, Twilight, etc.). It gave millennials the first major family franchise of their generation.

We’ll be returning to J.K. Rowling’s magical world of wizards this November with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and to help get you in the proper spirit, Warner Bros. is re-releasing all eight of the Harry Potter films — in IMAX, no less. There is a catch, of course: The films will only screen for one week, so if you want to see Mr. Potter & Co. on the very-very-big screen, you might want to clear your calendar.

Likely the first thought anyone had after news that The Flash Season 3 would feature Tom Felton in a regular role was the meta-reaction from Harry Potter geek Cisco. Now, new details and photos from Felton’s appearance confirm some tongue-in-cheek references to Felton’s Draco Malfoy past, as well as his “Flashpoint” arrival.

Just last month, Warner Bros. filed for a trademark on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the hit stage play (the script was also released in book form) that serves as the eighth installment in J.K. Rowling’s classic series. While that doesn’t necessarily indicate that WB is plotting a new Harry Potter movie, a new rumor suggests that that’s exactly what it means — and they want Daniel Radcliffe to return for not just one, but three films.

A few weeks ago, Daniel Radcliffe gave a very diplomatic answer when asked if he would ever consider a return to the Harry Potter franchise. And while the actor admitted that he would never close the door to the possibility — for the right script and with the right people involved — it turns out he may not have a franchise to return to. As reported by io9, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling told reporters at the premiere of London stage show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child that her beloved character was done after the events of the play.

Flash has curiously lagged behind Arrow in casting for its next season, and its first major addition is sure get Cisco fanboying. Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton is joining The Flash Season 3 in a regular role, but what part might he play in “Flashpoint”?
