‘Fangirl’ Author Rainbow Rowell Admits to Writing Harry Potter Fanfiction

While her novel Fangirl is centered around a nerdy female named Cath who writes fanfiction based on the fictional Simon Snow fantasy series, author Rainbow Rowell admitted that she has something in common with her protagonist: She also wrote fanfiction. Harry Potter fanfiction. Rainbow admitted that her story focuses on Harry and Draco as a couple, which is a popular romantic pairing in the Harry Potter fanfiction world.

Harry Potter + Fangirl

Rowell gave a a brief summary of her fanfiction to the folks over at TheBookSeller:

“It’s funny because it’s where I was in life. It’s Harry and Draco as a couple who have been married for many years, and they’re raising Harry’s kids, with Ginny, she has not been vilified.

“It’s them dealing with attachment parenting and step-parents and all these middle-aged issues of what it means to be a step-parent.”

And although Rainbow Rowel has never published the work on the Internet, she plans to read an excerpt from it during her appearance at the Harry Potter fan convention LeakyCon in America later this month.

On the idea of someday meeting J. K. Rowling, Rainbow had this to say:

“Someday I’ll meet J K Rowling and I’ll be mortified,” Rowell told The Bookseller. “If our paths were ever to cross, I don’t want this to come up.”

New The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Still Featuring Gandalf and Bard

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is set to be released in the UK on December 12th, and in North America on December 17th. Before then, we’ll be getting plenty of promotional material for you. Below is a new still from the set of The Battle of Five armies movie featuring Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, which was featured in the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Battle of the Five Armies

 The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie synopsis:

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

Let’s hope we get some footage or a teaser trailer from the final Hobbit film soon! The official full-length trailer won’t be out until October, but a teaser would satiate us fans.

Author of ‘The Giver’ Lois Lowry Talks Book to Film Changes

With any film based on a novel there are expected to be some changes due to certain complexities—like trying to compress a 300+ page novel into a 2 hour visual experience. Lois Lowry’s dystopian future novel The Giver is of course no exception, and naturally some changes had to be made. When Lois spoke to Hypable about the film, she gave some details about certain changes and admitted that she thinks the film is “well done.”

Taylor Swift: The Giver

On changes from The Giver novel to movie:

“There are some changes for obvious reasons. The book is very introspective, there’s not a lot of action, and a movie has to have visual stuff, so there’s been action added that is not in the book.”

On the film’s suspense:

“It’s well done,” said Lowry. “Very suspenseful. I had two grandchildren here this weekend, teenagers, and I showed it to them, I have it on my computer, and they were on the edge of their seat for the last 5-10 minutes, and that’s how it should be in a movie.”

On the cast of The Giver:

“It’s all fallen into place and they look exactly as they should. I think Jeff, without a question, is the right person in the role and he does a fantastic job.” 

“I had not a hint that they were wooing Meryl Streep into doing it. She’s amazing in the role, and not surprisingly, her role, which is a very minor one in the book, becomes larger in the movie, and she plays it with just chilling perfection. Katie Holmes and Alexander Sakrsgaard are amazing as well as the parents. Taylor Swift had already come and gone when I was there, so I did not get to see her play her relatively small, but important role. Every one of them was carefully selected, and it’s funny because in the book the term ‘selection’ is used for the boy. ‘You’ve been selected.’ These actors were selected and they were absolutely the right choices.”

You can read the entire interview over at Hypable!

The Giver hits theaters on August 15th, 2014.
