The meanest pirate in Westeros is about to become a bit more fun and a tad less hairy. Euron Greyjoy, Theon’s power-mad uncle, is going to cause some real trouble in Game of Thrones season 7, and he’s getting a new look in the process. “He’s much more just f—ing enjoying himself this season,” says actor Pilou Asbaek.
It’s back! Directed by David Yates, Pottermore reported this morning (July 3rd) that production has officially started on the second Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

With his new series Castlevania (based on the video game of the same name) set to hit Netflix on Friday, producer Adi Shankar has already found another project to fill the work void. That project is an anime TV adaptation of Assassin’s Creed.
The film is set in 1927, months after Newt helped in the capture of Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. At the end of the first film, Newt leaves New York on a boat set for Europe. As principle photography began at Leavesden today, Warner Bros. revealed that New York, London and Paris will feature in the film.
The actress told the U.K.’s Sunday Times that the massive HBO hit was her “sex education.” “I’d be doing a read-through and we’d be talking about very graphic stuff,” she said in the new interview. “The first time I ever found out about oral sex was from reading the script. I was like … ‘Wow! People do that? That’s fascinating!’”
The close of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them saw Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) help unmask and apprehend Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp), who had disguised himself as MACUSA Auror Percival Graves. The latest from the studio is that, in the new film, Grindelwald will ‘make a dramatic escape’ from MACUSA custody, forcing Albus Dumbledore to join the wizarding world’s efforts to stop him.
