J.K. Rowling to Attend Special Screening of Fantastic Beasts Film To Benefit Lumos

From Lumos --

LUMOS FOUNDATION USA -- author J.K. Rowling’s international non-profit children's organization--announced today that J.K. Rowling will join Academy Award® winner Eddie Redmayne on stage at the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, November 12th, 2016 at 6:00 pm for a conversation, followed by a special advance screening of the much-anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures feature film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Starting today at 11:00 am ET, tickets to this family event (age recommendation 10 years+) range from $25-$500 and will be available at the Carnegie Hall Box Office at 57th St. and Seventh Avenue in New York City, CarnegieCharge 212-247-7800, and online at http://www.carnegiehall.org/

This exclusive event to benefit Lumos Foundation USA, in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and publisher Scholastic Inc., will follow the film’s worldwide premiere, being held earlier that week in New York, and is prior to the UK premiere in London the following week.  The film will open worldwide on November 18th, 2016 and on November 19th  Scholastic will publish the screenplay of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J. K. Rowling in the United States and Canada.

The benefit screening at Carnegie Hall will be introduced by director David Yates together with members of the cast.  All proceeds will go directly toward the work of Lumos to help the eight million children in orphanages around the world get back to family life. 

The film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a new and original story by J.K. Rowling, marking her screenwriting debut.  In addition to Eddie Redmayne, the film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo and Colin Farrell.  

Ticket revenues will support the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign in the United States, UK and across the globe.  The campaign will launch in September and help raise awareness and funds to end the harmful and unnecessary practice of placing children in orphanages. 

“Decades of research and evidence show us that all aspects of a child’s development suffer when they are raised in orphanages and institutions.  These places can never replace what a child needs, which is love, care and attention from a dedicated parent or caregiver” said Georgette Mulheir, CEO of Lumos.  “Because most children in orphanages are not orphans, they can go home if we can put the right support in place for their families.”

“We are profoundly grateful to J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. and Scholastic for making this exciting film screening possible.  Not only is it an opportunity to be among the first to see the film, but it will also help Lumos do the vital work needed to help the millions of vulnerable and voiceless children in orphanages get back to their families and family life, which is their right, and it is where they belong.”

“Warner Bros. is proud to support the important work done by Lumos” said Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros.  “Jo has inspired millions with her amazing storytelling, and now Lumos is doing the same through their work on behalf of children everywhere.  They are truly changing the world, one child at a time.”

"J.K. Rowling’s brilliant Harry Potter series has inspired and encouraged millions of children around the world.  Now Jo and the Lumos Foundation are improving the lives of millions more children by helping return them to family life, and Scholastic is proud to support this important work," said Dick Robinson, Chairman, President and CEO, Scholastic.

Thanks to the generosity of Warner Bros., Scholastic and Lumos’ 100% Pledge, every cent donated and raised by the event will go directly to Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund. The Fund will help children in the countries where Lumos works to leave orphanages and return to a family life. No portion of any donations will go to administration, fundraising or overhead costs of the organization. 

Visitors to the wearelumos.org/worldwide website are invited to sign up now to the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign, which will launch in September. Those registering now will receive early notification of further exciting announcements. 

Over the past decade, Lumos has helped thousands of children – from infants to older children – return to family life in Central and Eastern Europe and more recently in Haiti. Now, in its second decade, Lumos is expanding its work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and other regions around the world with the aim to end institutionalization of children globally by 2050.

Finding the Philosopher's Stone at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter

From Warner Bros Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter --

Finding the Philosopher’s Stone - Special seven-week feature to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the first Harry Potter film

Friday 22nd July – Monday 5th September

This summer, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will celebrate the epic quest Harry, Ron and Hermione embarked upon to find and protect the Philosopher’s Stone. Filmmakers used a range of special and visual effects techniques to create the various obstacles the trio faced on their journey. Visitors will discover how giant chess pieces were made to move, Fluffy the three-headed dog (and his saliva) was brought to life and the deadly Devil’s Snare was taken from page to screen.

For the first time ever, there will be a moving display of the Devil’s Snare that the magical trio encountered in their hunt for the Philosopher’s Stone in Creature Effects. Visitors will have the chance to see and even touch the giant tentacles that have been specially created as they were in the films.

Head Propmaker Pierre Bohanna went through several processes to create the final version of the Philosopher’s Stone that can be seen on screen. When asked, J.K. Rowling said that the stone should look like an “uncut ruby”. A number of the early versions of the Philosopher’s Stone will be on display at the Tour and visitors will be able to see first-hand how it was created as expert prop makers demonstrate stages in the process.

During this special feature, film fans will be invited to learn how one of Ron Weasley’s favourite games, Wizard’s Chess, was brought to life on a large scale by Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson and his team. The giant chess pieces will move across a chequered board, as if by magic, on the Tour’s backlot.

In addition to this, vats of slimy Troll snot, buckets of dribbling drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and pools of silvery unicorn blood will be showcased in the Tour and visitors will get to see demonstrations showing exactly how the gunk and goo were created. They will also have the chance to celebrate the bravery of not only Harry, Ron and Hermione but also Neville Longbottom. His pyjamas will be displayed in the Gryffindor common room as they were when he was placed in a Full Body-Bind Curse by a young Hermione.
