Variety: Eagle Takes “New Moon” In Italy

ROME — “Twilight” sequel “New Moon” has landed its first overseas sale to Italy, where the Chris Weitz-helmed vampire romancer is partly set and will briefly shoot in May.

Eagle Pictures, which released “Twilight” on Italo screens, announced on Tuesday it has re-upped with Summit Ent. for the sequel, specifying that “New Moon” will shoot in the ancient Tuscan city of Volterra in May for two weeks.

In Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling “New Moon” tome, Volterra is the town where the powerful Volturi vampire coven reside. Dakota Fanning is reportedly in talks to play a teen Volturi vamp, while “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are on board.

Shooting on “New Moon” will start in Vancouver in March.

Eagle Pictures, which is owned by Tunisian mogul Tarak Ben Ammar and has close ties with Summit, announced that “New Moon” will be released in Italy on Nov. 20, day-and-date with its Stateside release.

“With ‘New Moon’ we have acquired the most highly anticipated picture of 2009,” boasted Eagle Pictures managing director Mark Lombardo in a statement. “Now our challenge is beat the record set by ‘Twilight’.”

“Twilight” grossed $15 million in Italy, making it the country’s ninth top-grosser in 2008, right after “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and ahead of Matteo Garrone’s “Gomorrah.”

To date “Twilight” has grossed more than $350 million worldwide.


Media Blvd: Solomon Trimble Keeps His Options Open

Although it is unknown if he will reprise his part in the sequel New Moon, Trimble had a great experience on Twilight and would love to continue to be involved with the production. The multi-talented artist recently spoke to MediaBlvd Magazine about fan encounters, writing poetry and being focused enough to keep all of his possibilities for the future open.

I especially like this section:

MediaBlvd> You didn’t have any scenes with Robert Pattinson, but did you get to meet him at all?

Solomon> I didn’t have any scenes with Rob, but I saw some pre-production clips and knew that he was crazy talented. I met Rob twice, but every time we met, he had to pee. I saw him at lunch, one day, on set, and I extended my hand and said, “I’m Solomon. I’m playing Sam,” and he replied, “Sorry, I’ve got to piss.” Some crew member asked me “Did he just snub you?,” and I said, “No, the man has to pee.” The next time I got a chance to talk to him was after the premiere. I was hanging out with Catherine and her whole crew, up on the rooftop of some bar in L.A., and I saw Rob and he was like, “Damn, every time we meet, I’ve got to piss,” and he walked by me. Later that night, we traded phone numbers and I sent him a text saying, “This is Solomon/Sam.” Then, I memorized the number and took it out of my phone because I have a habit of losing my phone when I jog.

Rob never fails to impress me.

Vanessa Hudgens Unlikely To Join New Moon Cast—Yes, we already knew that, but there’s lots more information in this article!

She reportedly auditioned for a role in the forthcoming Twilight sequel, New Moon, but Vanessa Hudgens is unlikely to get the part – for now.

“I’m not sure about [final] casting but I had heard Vanessa Hudgens was going up for the part of Leah [Clearwater, a werewolf],” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote both films, explained to PEOPLE at the 61st Annual Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles Saturday night. “But at the moment, the part of Leah doesn’t happen until the third movie.”

See? It’s nothing personal. Plus, reps have denied Hudgens was in consideration for the role.

Rosenberg also offered a few other insider tidbits about the progress of New Moon. “Well, you know Taylor Lautner will be back as Jacob Black. I can tell you the original cast will all be coming back. They’re on set right now, in Vancouver! They’re all up there prepping the movie to start shooting very soon.”

As for other changes in the next installment, Rosenberg said she expected new director Chris Weitz – who replaced the first film’s director, Catherine Hardwicke – to put his expertise and imprint on the second film.

“Chris Weitz directed The Golden Compass, which was a beautiful-looking film,” Rosenberg said. “And I think it’s wonderful we have someone who has worked with CGI animals … that will be a big part of New Moon. I’m delighted we have someone who’s so expert at that.”


Twilight Sequels To Go Torture Porn?

It could mean, in short, that New Moon will be a little bit bloodier than anticipated. Or certainly the Twlight film after that. Is there any filmmaking/distribution outfit with a more pronounced reputation for being deeply in love with arterial gushings? That’s Lionsgate in a nutshell.

So declares Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere, in response to Sharon Waxman’s report (for which “executives at Lionsgate and Summit declined to comment”) that Lionsgate (home of the Saw, Hostel and Tyler Perry franchises) may be buying Summit Entertainment, including the company’s library and slate, which includes teenage necrophilia phenom franchise Twilight.

But of course, Wells’ “nutshell” definition of Lionsgate is out of date. It’s an open secret that Lionsgate is so desperate to distance itself from its bloody past that the distributor has spent the past year engineering the failure of its remaining genre stock — dumping Midnight Meat Train in rural dollar theaters; taking the ultra-cinematic The Burrowers off its theatrical release schedule entirely; killing Cabin Fever as a theatrical franchise by releasing its Ti West-directed sequel straight to DVD. If anything, in Lionsgate’s hands, the Twilight sequels are likely to go even more tame.


Will New Moon Be A Lionsgate Film?

The Canadian film and television distribution company Lionsgate Entertainment is reportedly in talks to merge with Summit. Lionsgate has already gobbled up several other production facilities and distributors, such as Trimark, Cinepix and Artisan Entertainment. This from

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are in talks to merge their two companies, according to two people familiar with the negotiations. The plan, if the deal goes through, is for Lionsgate to buy Summit’s library of six films and the rights to the “Twilight” franchise. Early talks last year involved the merger of only the domestic divisions, under the terms of the reported deal. Executives at Lionsgate and Summit declined to comment for this story. But one Lionsgate executive, who declined to speak for attribution, said: “At this time there are no new conversations.” Rumors of a proposed merger have abounded for months, and other executives familiar with the terms said the deal made sense.

Notable films from Lions Gate have included American Psycho, Gods and Monsters, Dogma, Saw, and Fahrenheit 9/11–and Lionsgate is in the works with MGM and Paramount/Viacom to launch a new premium TV channel that will be similar to HBO or Showtime.

Great Falls Tribune: Twilight a satisfying adaptation

One word describes the feeling I got from watching “Twilight” — wow!

Just waiting in line was an event in itself, as I stood among people of all ages excited to see the most anticipated movie of the holiday season. While a friend and I waited in line for a good 45 minutes to be let into the theater, we talked to a few other “Twilight” fans.

It was a diverse group, not just the expected teenage girls, but also mothers, grandmothers, boys and men. Despite all of the differences, the entire group seemed to be buzzing with excitement.

The movie begins when 17-year-old, Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, moves to Forks, Wash., to live with her father, Charlie. On her first day at her new school Bella meets Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson. He’s her biology partner but is not as welcoming as the rest of the student body.

Later she sees him trying to change his schedule so he won’t have any classes with her. When that fails, he disappears for the next couple of weeks. When he comes back, he apologizes for his behavior, but after Bella is almost hit by a car, she becomes suspicious.

After a couple more incidents and the help of an old Native American legend, she figures out Edward is a vampire. Despite this, they fall in love, but soon their relationship is tested when three vampires begin to hunt humans in Cullen’s territory.

The filming was very impressive, and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The cast does a nice job of bringing the characters to life. Stewart and Pattinson portray their characters exceptionally well, as does Billy Burke as Charlie, Bella’s father, adding surprising humor.

“Twilight” is tastefully adapted into an impressive movie that will leave viewers and fans satisfied and waiting for the second. It comes out on DVD on March 21.

The next movie installment from Stephenie Meyer’s book series, “New Moon,” is set for release in late 2009 or early 2010.


Blast: Twilight Dawns a New Day for 3 musicians

The Twilight Soundtrack has spent 12 straight weeks in the top 10 (settling currently at #5) and is about to break the record for the longest run in the top 10 since 8 Mile. For some artists included in the soundtrack, this might be old news, but for Sam Bradley, Bobby Long, and Marcus Foster, this could be a career jump starter, and we were lucky enough to talk to all three of them this week about their involvement in the Twilight soundtrack, their music, and their upcoming endeavors.

If you haven’t heard of them, these three Brits are friends and musical collaborators with Rob Pattinson, who performed their songs “Never Think” (co-written by Pattinson and Bradley) and “Let Me Sign” (written by Foster and Long) on the soundtrack.

Eager to get closer to anything Rob, Twilighters have shifted their die-hard gaze towards these three and have accidently stumbled into some really genuinely good music. Now before you listen, be aware that these aren’t the typical musicians you’d expect to gain worldwide attention from a teen phenomenon. We’re talking Tom Waits, Van Morrison, Jeff Buckley inspired music – not anything like the Disney pop Jo Bros or Miley Cyrus hits blaring in teen girls’ ear buds across the country (thank goodness). What makes Twilight so different from most teen phenomenons, and what I believe gives these boys so much hope, is the huge presence of twenty-something, even thirty-something fans that might have already grown up on this type of music. Either way, needless to say, the guys don’t mind the sudden influx of new fans.

“It’s put me on the map that’s for sure,” Long said. “I used to play 5 gigs a week for like 2 people because I always thought it was important to get an education in music and play for like nobody and learn how to play. Now all of a sudden. . .”. Now all of a sudden he has gone from around 50 plays a day on Myspace to around 700, and has girls screaming at his gigs in London – one girl even ran up to kiss him before being asked to leave. Unphased by his new audience, Long described the change: “Well, it’s nice. It’s really nice playing to people but it can be a bit uncomfortable. . . it’s not at the stage like Rob has it, though.”

At this point, it’s a good thing they’ve all witnessed Robert’s rocket to fame and how wild fans can be. “They’re insane,” Long laughed, describing Twilight fans, “but they’re funny and I think they’re aware they’re like that, so they have a sense of humor. But they’re all nice people”. Marcus recognizes how many of his new fans are Twiligthers as well; something hard to hide when they have profile pictures of Rob. “It’s crazy. I get lots of messages every day, it’s quite funny.”

Joking about the vivacity of the Twilight fans, and claiming he would never have too many fans, Sam stated, “if I was to be chased down by fans, that would be a good thing. It would be fun – I reckon I can run faster than them”. The three musicians even have a livejournal community dedicated to them – “land of dreamers”.

Just a year ago, none of them (not even Rob) could have expected they’d be talking about being overwhelmed by fans. Sam, Marcus, and Rob all went to school together in London and met Bobby by playing different venues when he came to London to study and do his music as well. “He was one of the guys playing at an open mic,” Sam said about meeting Bobby, “we looked at each other from across the room, our eyes met . . . and the rest is history”.

While Marcus has been playing for years, both Sam and Bobby have had late starts into musician-dom, not learning the guitar until 17. “It was something that just felt kind of natural,” Bradley said about playing. Long seems to have had a similar beginning: “I was just this shy, lead guitar player in like, grungy bands. . .I only starting singing about a year and a half ago, two years ago”. And thank goodness he did.

Despite their modest start, all three have big plans for the future.

Sam Bradley is in the studio all this week in Vancouver recording and then off to Paris to finish production for the rest of the month where he will meet up with Foster and Long to do back-up vocals.

“I heard about that,” Bobby said in reference to the collaboration in Paris. He didn’t hear it from Sam. “Someone else on Myspace told me”. Oh the wonders of the modern world.

“I just say it out loud and assume he knows it” Sam joked, proving their communication to be only a little strained from Vancouver to London with the help of loyal fans. Fortunately, Sam did e-mail Marcus to ask, and he’s confirmed he’ll be on board if he can get there.

Set on a tight schedule, Bradley has basically a month to get everything done. “I’m so tired, it’s been really good. We’re getting some really good stuff,” Bradley said in reference to the recordings. In addition to Marcus Foster and Bobby Long, Sam’s regular band will be playing on the album, and his sister will be providing some vocals as well. “It’s a mash of people playing, basically . . . everyone connected means something”.

As far as what can be expected on his new album, he stated, “there are lots of new songs, there are also some that have been on the Myspace but they’re different – it’s more professional.” Sam also disclosed that one fan favorite, and Sam’s personal favorite, “Sea Blue” will be appearing on the new album.

While in France, Bradley will also be playing at Kord Unplugged, right in the heart of Paris on February 12th. “It’s going to be really intimate and really, really sexy,” Sam promised of the gig.

Currently working on a demo, Bobby Long is planning a trip to the states in April. This will be a crucial trip for Bobby, considering a great majority of his listeners are from the US (remember, Twilight was biggest here). He’ll also have the chance to meet with industry people and record labels. Arriving in New York on April 12th, he’ll be playing at the Lakeside Lounge April 13th and Arlene’s Grocery on the 14th. After that, he’ll be heading to Los Angeles, where he is still looking for venues: “we’re looking around, we have a few offers in LA but we’re looking for places to play on the 15th 16th and 17th, so if anyone has any ideas. . .”.

If you do have any suggestions – feel free to leave them below in the comment box. Also, according to Sam, he “better be playing” in these gigs as well, so if you’re a fan it could be a great chance to see them both.

As far as New Moon goes, Bobby revealed that there were a few songs that he wrote with Marcus around the same time they wrote “Let Me Sign” that he thinks could be appropriate for the next Twilight installment, if they are asked to contribute. Although they have talked about recording “Let Me Sign” themselves, Bobby and Marcus aren’t exactly how to work it out. “We don’t know whose album we’d put it on. Like, we kind of wrote songs together last year and that was one that we kind of gave to Rob. We preferred the other ones actually . . . maybe Rob can keep that one,” Marcus laughed.

Marcus, hoping to broaden his fan horizon from just Twilighters, will have another song featured in an upcoming movie. Starring Christopher Walken and Sharon Stone, the “Five Dollars a Day” soundtrack will include “Make it Easy”. Foster also has an upcoming gig in Brighton on February 6th, but has had his focus elsewhere for a while: “At the moment I’ve just been doing a lot of recording, and concentrating on that and also I’m trying to get a band together as well so I’ve been kind of waiting to get the right kind of group of people”. All this recording however, does mean he’ll have new songs to upload on his Myspace in the near future. This might come as bad news to all the fans that have grown to love the current songs listed there, but Marcus is excited about the change: “I’m actually quite tired of them at the moment, like, I’m looking forward to changing them in a week or so”.

This summer, all three are hoping to tour the states together. “We had this amazing plan at the start where it was going to be US and go to Vancouver and rehearse and then get a car and then just drive down to America,” Bobby said laughing before revealing the more practical reality: “we’re just trying to get visas”.

The styles of their music vary slightly, as is to be expected with individual endeavors, but their musical collaborations are seamless. Their personalities obviously contribute to their charm, with Sam’s humor, Bobby’s sweetness and Marcus’ general mystery, there’s a strong balance between all three that makes them fascinating to listen to. And then, of course, let’s not forget the accents.

Whether there is more Twilight action to be expected or not, Sam Bradley, Bobby Long, and Marcus Foster are at the dawn of their careers. All three were very adamant about how much they appreciate the support and love they receive from their fans, so if you want to help along the chance that they might be able to tour in your city this summer, the best way to help that along would be to show your support at Bobby’s gigs in New York and Los Angeles this Easter.

Access Hollywood: ‘Twilight’ Stars Confirm Details Of ‘New Moon’

Good news for Twi-hards; judging by the tips “Twilight” stars Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz shared with Access Hollywood about “New Moon” on Thursday night, it sounds like the second installment in the series will remain faithful to Stephenie Meyer’s book.

“I can tell you there’s a yellow Porsche,” Ashley revealed at the premiere of Dakota Fanning’s “Push,” confirming that the vehicle, which played a special role in the “New Moon” book, will be in the movie.

“I can tell you there’s werewolves,” she added coyly. “I think [the details of ‘New Moon’ script are] kind of highly under wraps.”

Ashley, who plays Alice Cullen, the sister of Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson’s character, is expected to return alongside Kellan, who plays older brother Emmett Cullen.

“We are both confirmed to be a part of it,” he said before retracting only slightly. “I’m still waiting — crossing fingers.”

Both of the actors said they are thrilled over the return of Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob Black, a young man/werewolf (and the best friend of Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan), to the franchise.

“I’m so proud of him,” Kellen said of the recent bulk-up Taylor underwent to secure his role in “New Moon.”

But one of their co-stars, Edi Gathegi, who plays Laurent, an old-school style vampire in the series, said he actually said he saw Taylor’s transformation as it happened.

“I actually worked out with him,” Edi revealed to Access last night. “We were working out in Australia together and working out across the country, so I saw it happening. I was there on the front lines. He was a little shrimp and he’s somewhat of a man now.”

Edi who will appear in “New Moon,” told Access the film would begin shooting in early spring.

“We start shooting in March in Vancouver and in Italy,” he said.

But whether the cast will include Dakota Fanning, who has repeatedly said she is interested in appearing in “New Moon,” is still up in the air.

“It’s probably too soon to say for sure, but I’m a huge fan,” Dakota said last night.

Awesome Twilight Riddles

Want to have some fun, maybe win a prize, and prove a college professor wrong? Here’s the email we originally received from Lexiconer Julika:

I‘m writing to ask you if it was possible that the Lexicon provided some help with one of my courses. I study Anglophone Literature in Germany and one of my courses asks for a web project in literature. I proposed some sort of riddle/quiz/treasure hunt based on the Twilight saga and anything surrounding it and my lecturer was quite taken by the idea, especially because it’s so current.

We’re usually up for helping out most student projects if we have the time, so we asked for more details and here’s what Julika said:

It took some time, but I finished my project. University obstacles were met and dodged and the riddle can finally get going. Since I will have a small contest in which I’ll give away five t-shirts from WeBook Apparel (http://www.webookapparel.com/), I thought I’d let you know in advance that I will upload and start Twilight Riddle tomorrow around 11 am CET(5:00am EST). The address is http://riddles.juliakniep.de/. At the moment it’s still the “Under Construction” page but that will change come tomorrow… My lecturer has the odd opinion that there won’t be enough people interested. I hope Twilighters can show him.

If Magazine: From the Premiere of Push

Check out photos from the Push premiere (lots of Twilight stars in these) here.

Columnists debate which fantasy series reigns supreme.

Since the release of the “Twilight” series, and especially since the movie release, a debate has ensued about which series triumphs over the other, the beloved “Harry Potter” series, or the new contender, “Twilight.” Defending “Harry Potter” is senior Scene editor Allison Proite, and sophomore News editor Breann Schossow will defend her love for Edward Cullen and the other characters of “Twilight.” The Showcase editors,Tara Cegla and Frank Pellegrino, will determine the winner.

“Harry Potter”

The question of which book is better, “Harry Potter” or “Twilight,” has been circulating since “Twilight” hit it big in the past year.

When “Twilight” started gaining momentum and a heavy fan base, many started saying this series was the new “Harry Potter.” I read the books; I was entertained but I don’t think any series of books can compare to the magic of “Harry Potter.”

The fans of “Twilight” love the romance and think that Edward Cullen, the book’s leading man, is the perfect boyfriend, vampire or not. But, there is so much more to “Harry Potter” than a hot guy with a Volvo and sparkly skin.

One of the best aspects of the “Harry Potter” series is watching Harry, Ron and Hermione evolve over the seven books. They go from precocious 11 year olds to daring and talented teenage wizards and witch.

As a reader, it’s so interesting to go back to the first book, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” and read Harry’s adventures as a boy wizard and then read the last book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” and watch him become an adult and defeat the one wizard who has tormented him his entire life.

The same goes for Ron and Hermione. Watching their relationship go from innocent flirtations and bickering to outward love was an amazingly seamless transition and such an incredible part of the series. I thought it was more interesting to watch them fall in love over the series instead of the two being in love within the first 50 pages.

One of the most creative people that ever existed is “Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling. In her seven part series, Rowling created an entire world. Places like Hogwarts, Gringotts, The Burrow and Hogsmeade are also locations that Rowling created for her characters to go and interact. In “Harry Potter” the reader gets completely lost in a world unlike their own. In “Twilight” the reader can get lost in a world like Forks or Seattle. No real imagination needed there.

The “Harry Potter” series also sends its readers messages of respect, love, good versus evil and especially equality. Throughout the series, we are introduced to the word “mudblood.” Hermione is called one because she is not a “full blooded” wizard since she comes from two non-wizard parents. Did Rowling intentionally slip in the message that everyone is equal regardless of where they come from? Yes, she is that much of a genius. She knows that children read her books and can apply her messages to their everyday lives.

But besides the character evolution and the more creative aspect of “Harry Potter,” the fact still remains that everyone can read the series. I’ve had conversations with children, grandparents, college-aged guys and professors about “Harry Potter.” I can’t say the same for “Twilight.” If I even mention “Twilight” in front of a guy, most of them roll their eyes. The “Twilight” series has a much smaller demographic; just girls.

The “Twilight” series is romantic and are entertaining books, but they won’t be remembered like “Harry Potter” will. Fifty years from now, first generation “Harry Potter” lovers will be reading the books to their grandchildren while “Twilight” will be just a couple of books from the past. Sure “Twilight” is all anyone can talk about today, but “Harry Potter” will be talked about as long as there are books to read.


I remember the first time I heard of the “Twilight” series. It started when a friend informed me she had met someone over the summer who was just like me except for one thing – she loved the new book series by Stephanie Meyer.

Therefore, my friend thought that I was bound to love them too. But I wasn’t so sure because to be honest, vampire love stories had never made my reading list. I was skeptical.

But within the first few chapters, I, like all other “Twilight” fans, was bitten by the content – the impossible love story, the characters of Edward and Bella and of course, the side complications. The course of true love never did run smooth, which makes these books relatable.

I flew through the series, needing to know the ending. Naturally, I believed it had to end well. However, once captured by a series, readers are highly irrational people. The first time that irrationality occurred in my life was caused by the “Harry Potter” series.

However, after finishing the “Twilight” series, I found that I would rather read the four “Twilight” books on repeat (“Twilight,” “New Moon,” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn”) than my childhood favorite, the “Harry Potter” series, for a number of reasons.

First of all, Meyer writes through the perspective of a character at all times, as opposed to the almost omniscient narrator of “Harry Potter.” It was simple for me to fall into “Twilight” through the eyes of Bella.

Up until moving to Forks, Wash., Bella was a typical human being. Her concerns included worrying about her mother and doing well in school, as opposed to Harry Potter, whose experiences up until going to Hogwarts have never been as feasible as the life of the normal human teenager.

While Meyer does bring the unrealistic into Bella’s world with Edward, a vampire, it always seemed more believable to me than Quidditch, invisibility cloaks and Avada Kedavra.

Yes, all of those things appealed to my imagination. But the “Twilight” series appealed to my sense of reality.

Second, the love story between Edward and Bella has captured the hearts of millions of readers. Who can blame them? Meyer gives both characters eloquent lines and a number of opportunities to prove that the way they feel is out of this world but realistic.

Perhaps the best part of this book is the creation of Edward, the character who feels he should be in a nightmare. However, as Bella narrates in the final book, the only place he belongs is in a fairy tale.

Just what many girls want, especially those who grew up with the Disney princesses.

At the same time, Meyer gave Edward a number of swoon-worthy lines that even reached me, Ms. Reasonable. My personal favorite happened in the second book, “New Moon,” when Edward compares the effect of Bella on his life to a meteor.

He says, “My life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars … And then you shot across my sky like a meteor … when you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black … my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”

As I pointed out earlier, I’d like to think that I’m too reasonable to swoon, but Meyer’s writing makes Edward into one of the most perfect characters for women to fall in love. He is a perfect gentleman and would prefer to save Bella from his life – all the while breaking his own heart.

Now, for the shallow but notable part. Edward may be one of the most gorgeous characters to leap off the pages of a book, especially in comparison to the star of the “Harry Potter” series. He may be today’s new Mr. Darcy.

It may be terrible for me to turn my back on a childhood favorite, but like a number of readers, I needed a new series to read at a new point of my life.

Due to the popularity that rivals that of the “Harry Potter” series, I’m obviously not the only one.

The Results

Despite Tara’s undying love for Edward Cullen, both editors have to side with Harry Potter on this one. The books create a fantasy world that readers can escape to, unlike the seemingly boring town of Forks. With the movie, “Harry Potter” well depicts the gorgeous castle of Hogwarts and all the wonder of each magical creature and spell.

Also, Frank thinks that the wonderful world of magic can be appreciated on a much deeper level than vampires and werewolves. The idea of anyone digging their fangs into a neck is just too much for us.
