The real Hogwarts Express train at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion at Universal Orlando now has a train track in place.

A photo taken behind the scenes at Universal Orlando depicts an elevated track upon which the Hogwarts Express train will roll. The track will connect the existing Hogsmeade land at Islands of Adventure with the new London/Diagon Alley land at Universal Studios (the neighboring theme park). The two lands will create a massive Harry Potter world.

Other than construction photos that depicted what looks like a train station, this is the first time we have physical proof of the train elements.

Wizarding World Orlando Hogwarts Express train track

There are still many questions as to what will be happening on the Hogwarts Express as you take the ride. You will probably not be able to look out real windows because you’d have an unattractive view of the backstage areas of Universal. Instead, you may be looking at virtual screens that make you feel like you’re looking out real windows at an English countryside. Rumors in recent months have suggested that the Harry Potter cast filmed additional scenes for the train ride.

In February we showed you high-res overhead shots of the construction site. The third photo at the link gives you a look at the construction between Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley where you can see metal objects in place to support the train track pictured above.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion is rumored to be opening in June 2014 if progress remains on track.

The new Harry Potter world is shaping up to be an impressive technical feat. Other features of the expansion reportedly include a Gringotts bank thrill ride, The Leaky Cauldron restaurant, and new shops.

Anyone who received a mole or rat Patronus in J.K. Rowling’s new quiz is getting a little reassurance from the Harry Potter author.

Last week Pottermore took the fandom by storm when they debuted the long-awaited Patronus quiz. It’s a next-level personality quiz — it’s beautiful and provides a real sense of magic. Overall, we love it!

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

Over the weekend Rowling fielded a couple of complaints by offering the upside to getting a rat or mole Patronus.

Rat Patronus explanation:

Mole Patronus explanation:

All told, there are over 140 Patronuses. Can she get to work on writing reassuring comments on every single one of ’em?

In a press release announcing the Patronus quiz, Pottermore said that “further new information and features will be revealed about the spell and its outcomes” in the “months to come.” Hopefully that means we really are getting detailed explanations.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con, Hypable caught up with Game of Thrones actress Kerry Ingram for a chat about Shireen’s horrific death scene, Netflix, and horseback riding.

It seemed like a full-circle moment when I got to sit down with Kerry Ingram and tell her just how much Shireen Baratheon’s death upset me. Even on a show like Game of Thrones, which makes an art out of assaulting its viewers’ senses, that particular scene felt like it crossed a line — and that was just my reaction, watching safely from behind a computer screen! How must the actress herself feel, having to actually act out her character’s death at such a young age?

This led to a wider musing about what Game of Thrones does to protect its child actors from the horrific things their characters experience. (Ingram is now 17, but was only barely in her mid-teens when that scene was filmed.) I also wondered if she ever went back and watched the scene. Turned out she watched it live with the rest of us — but, luckily, she was able to find the fun side of the situation: Outraged reactions like my own. The irony is sweet.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con 2016 I got to ask Kerry Ingram all this and more, while also diving into more fun topics like Shireen and Arya’s hypothetical take-over of Westeros, and Ingram’s new Netflix series, on which she plays ‘Becky with the good hair’ and gets to do lots of horseback riding. Watch the full interview below:

Ingram’s new Netflix series stars Jaylen Barron as Zoë, a 15-year-old American girl whose stay at Bright Field Stables in the U.K. leads her to form an unexpected friendship with a mysterious horse named Raven.

The Lime Pictures drama also stars Celine Buckens and Natalie Gumede. It was created by Anna McCleery and Vicki Lutas, and is tentatively expected to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

Update (September 26): In a recent development based on new posts from Will and Grace cast members Debra Messing and Megan Mullally teasing the names “Lucy” and “Ethel” in addition to Sean Hayes’ “Fred” we now believe that an I Love Lucy reboot or one night only special is coming our way!

October 15 marks the 65 anniversary of the classic sitcom’s debut.

More as this story develops!

This is not the first time that the cast has come together in tribute to I Love Lucy.

Original: Will! Grace! Jack! Karen! Hot Food! Wait, what was that last one? The cast of Will and Grace got together this week to presumably to film a super-secret project. Are we finally getting that full cast reunion special? A reboot? A Christmas special? What does it mean?

The pictures began to pour in from all four of the cast members earlier this weekend with a few couple shots and one of the entire cast followed shortly.

The first few images made our hearts flutter and our eyes water, but then more photos were posted and it seems that the sweet reunion was more than just a few friends gathering for the fun of it. Something is coming. Something big.

Eric McCormack’s script here says, “Hot Food.” Similarly, on Sean Hayes’ Instagram, a picture featuring the same title was posted with the name “Fred” underneath.

Other photos, namely those of Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, look as if they were shot on the rebuilt set of 9C. Be still my heart. Be still.

With very little to go on, some of our early guesses include a video filmed in support of a charity or, more likely, an announcement that the entire series is going to available for streaming on either Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. The series is currently not available online.

Whatever the news turns out to be, it was a great weekend to be a Will and Grace fan!

Stay tuned for more information after the announcement arrives!
