Although Spring Break will be over, the movie version of Margit Auer’s School of Magical Animals will be sure to entertain.
Margit Auer‘s School of Magical Animals may well be the newest franchise to admire when the live-action movie adaptation plays in movie theatres come March 24. Blue Fox Entertainment will no doubt face a challange while promoting this import because viewers will no doubt see this work as combining the best in Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts into one.!
While it’s tough to rank where this magical fantasy and musical sits in the list of top works of young adult adventures, this IP has led the charts in Germany. It’s been translated to other languages for fans to enjoy world-wide. The books outnumber J.K. Rowling’s seven volume series (there’s 11 in all). And when producers Alexandra and Meike Kordes came across this pheneomon back in 2013, they knew it had to be turned into a movie.

Fans of Tame Impala will soon get a chance to listen to his latest tune for D&D: Honor Among Thieves. Wings of Time may well be the closing track.
Today, Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) has released “Wings of Time,” an original song written for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves from Paramount Pictures and eOne. The track is out everywhere via Fiction (distributed by Virgin Music Group). Listen to “Wings of Time” and links to where it can be heard is compiled in this collection here.
Alternatively, we’re offering a YouTube link in the middle of this article.
“Being asked to do a track for the D&D soundtrack seemed like an unmissable opportunity to indulge in my long time love of fantasy prog rock,” says Parker. “I recruited my good friend Nicholas Allbrook, who is the person I know appreciates this subject matter the most. We rented a villa in Spain, that kind of felt like a castle, for two nights whilst on tour for Primavera. That location got us in the right frame of mind and it went from there. We stayed up late coming up with weird ideas and song lyrics.”

As for where Call of Cthulhu is (as I reported years ago), that’s because it’s been serialised in the magazine, Comic Beam, and there’s no word if that will get put into a trade paperback and translated too. Fans can chant and make sacred pacts in hopes for it to happen though.
For now, this manga series by Eisner and Harvey Award nominee will come complete in one volume. Zack Davisson has been handling the translation and what’ll be presented is in safe hands. All anyone has to do is look at his portfolio of books (Amazon link) about the supernatural side of Japan.
This music video also includes Belle Humble’s interpretation of what West Side is about (and the New York vibes are present).
Ever since AmPm broke into the global dance music scene with their debut release, they have been riding high on countless waves of success.

Their latest single, titled ‘West Side,’ is now available to stream, and it looks to take inspiration by the musical of a simliar name.
