TEST: Could You Pass Transfiguration 101?

In the Hogwarts universe, Transfiguration is pretty similar to science. You have to get it exactly right or you’re going to mess it up – case in point: remember that time Ron turned his pet rat into that gross furry goblet with a tail? Nobody wants to drink out of that.

“Transfiguration is some of the most complex and dangerous magic you will learn at Hogwarts. Anyone messing around in my class will leave.” – Minerva McGonagall

Sounds an awful lot like when science teachers were drilling us about bunsen burner safety in science lessons…

McGonagall, according to Pottermore, was talented with Transfiguration even as a young student. She was the “winner of the Transfiguration Today Most Promising Newcomer award”, and “under the guidance of her inspirational Transfiguration teacher, Albus Dumbledore, she had managed to become an Animagus; her animal form, with its distinctive markings (tabby cat, square spectacles markings around eyes) were duly logged in the Ministry of Magic’s Animagus Registry.”

So, if you think you’ve got what it takes to pass the science class of the wizarding world, take the test below and see how well you would do in Transfiguration 101!


TEST: Can You Guess the “Harry Potter” Film from These Movie Stills?

Harry Potter is a cultural icon. It has defined an entire generation and has inspired many to make every day magical. It’s inspired a new generation of fiction. Without Harry Potter, we wouldn’t have many of the young adult fiction we have today. To us, Harry Potter is practically perfect in every way. It is all thanks to J.K. Rowling for crafting a beautiful and truely magical world. Thanks to her, we will always find a home in Hogwarts.

There are seven Harry Potter books, and eight films, as well as a stage play and other spin-off books. But how well do you know the films? Could you tell us which of the eight Harry Potter movies these Stills come from?

We’ve found some rather obscure stills from the movies in order to find out who is a true Harry Potter film buff, and who is just dipping their feet into the films.

So, can you identify these 11 movie Stills, or will you need a Remembrall to figure them out?
