  9. As you get ready for the red carpet film premiere, fill in this crossword to brush up on your film knowledge. Link: https://postimg.cc/ctHHk8Rf Send your finished Crossword to the fabulous @Lorainia Riverrider in a forum pm by 11:59 PM HOL-time on August 18 to receive 10 rubies.
  10. You continue on through the festival, starting to get worn out despite the bright lights triggering every sense. Deciding to have a rest, you have a seat on an elegantly painted bench. Right as you’re ready to peruse the next few booths, a young boy comes running up. “Can I interest you in a bit of trivia?” he asks, enthusiastically. Glancing around, you decide some trivia might be a good idea and will allow you to rest your legs a few minutes longer. Taking his offer, you accept a clipboard he hands you with a row of questions elaborately painted on thick cardstock. Your eyes skip over the page, taking in the designs, and then you reach for the feathered calligraphy pen he offers you. First question, oh dear, the answer’s right on the tip of your tongue! 1. Wooden boy whose nose grows when he lies. 2. Year that Dumbo was created. 3. Company that created Bambi. 4. Animal Disney movie made into Broadway show. 5. First live action Disney movie. 6. Pixar Movie with the highest box office profit. 7. Oldest Disney movie. 8. First Disney Short. 9. Year Disney World first opened to guests. 10. Date Walt Disney was born. Answer these trivia questions for 10 rubies! Send your answers in a forum pm to me (Iverian) titled “Movie Trivia”. Remember to send them in by August 18th at 11:59 pm HOL time!
  11. You’re just finishing your snack when the same runner from before arrives at your elbow, giving you a wide-eyed look. Grimacing, you realise that you’re yet again not where you’re meant to be. To the dressing rooms! The time has come to strut your stuff on the red carpet! Quickly now, don your jewels, double check your coiffure and prepare to promenade. The outfits are an integral part of any glitzy premier or awards ceremony. With magic on our side, I see no reason why we shouldn’t come up with something utterly spellbinding for this glamourous occasion. For this task, we’d like you to design a red-carpet worthy outfit with a magical twist. Whether that’s swapping a tux for dress robes or enchanting your gown in some way, it’s up to you. You can choose to make a graphic, use a doll maker (please put effort in for full credit if you go this route) or describe your look in 80 words or more. Post your responses below by 11:59 PM HOL-time on 18 August to earn 10 rubies!
  12. It’s that time again! Buckle up because things are about to get intense… For each of these weekly screenings, we’re inviting you to pick between two Harry Potter films. You should then go and watch the one you picked and come back to offer your thoughts. And when we say your thoughts, it really can be anything at all. Perhaps you like (or dislike) a particular scene. Maybe there’s a mistake or inaccuracy that bugs you. Maybe you’d like to cast somebody different in one of the roles. Providing it’s HOL appropriate and polite, anything goes. There is no wordcount but please try to put a bit of effort in. Our options this week are Deathly Hallows Part 1 or Part 2. You can choose to watch them both if you’d like/have the time. Also, if you’re unable to access a copy of either film, feel free to join in the discussion anyway. The screening part is purely for fun. You’ll earn 5 rubies if you post your thoughts below by 11:59 PM HOL-time on 18 August.
  13. Our summer roleplay has got me thinking about Diagon Alley and all the incredible shops there. We only got to see a fraction of them through Harry's eyes but what we did see was fascinating. I think I'd spend forever in the magical equipment shops looking at the instruments and curiosities on sale. An ice-cream at Fortescues and a trip to the Magical Menagerie to cuddle the puffskeins would also be on the cards. Which shop or café would you most like to visit and what would you buy?

  17. As you step through the festival, you stumble upon a brightly lit booth with muggle screens all over, as though they themselves were the booth’s decorations. Curious, you approach the booth to find a man excitedly lining people up as if for a race. Upon closer inspection, you notice each person has a remote in their hands and are poised to begin. “On your marks, get set, go!” With that announcement, the screens suddenly flashed to a card with four options below it. You squint to get a better look and see… Sleeping Beauty! Well, the cover for it at least. You’d recognize Aurora anywhere. The players click in their guess among the options they have (really, who guessed Lion King for this one? That’s just rude) You wait to see how the game ends, and as the players get tense, a clear winner emerges. The bystanders break into applause and the leaderboard flashes the winner’s name in neon lights. Deciding to give it a shot, you step up. Clicking the link below will transport you to a Kahoot game. Each slide will have a movie cover on it and you’ll have to guess the correct movie. You will need a free Kahoot account. Press “play” and then “single player”. At the end, there will be a leaderboard that you take a screenshot of. Send the screenshot to me (Iverian) in a forum pm no later than 11:59 pm on August 18th for 10 rubies! May the odds be ever in your favor! https://create.kahoot.it/share/movie-trivia/c5167f1e-8ec9-4d5c-91be-8462c0f87f91
  18. Logic Puzzle: Alison, Judy, Janet, Alice, and Karla are attending a film screening. They each bought a different drink (Pink Lemonade, Pepsi, Ginger Ale, Bottled Water, or Orange Soda). The Snack counter sells several snacks and each girl bought a popcorn and a sweet. Use the clues below to determine which drink and sweet each girl bought. The person who bought a caramel apple did not buy pink lemonade or Pepsi to drink. One of the people whose name starts with “A” bought orange soda and the other bought a chocolate bar. The person who bought bottled water also bought sour straws. Janet and Alice did not buy a chocolate bar or a caramel apple. The person who bought M&MS did not buy Pepsi, or the ginger ale. Neither Alice or Janet bought Pepsi, but one of them bought M&Ms. The person who bought pink lemonade also bought a chocolate bar. Janet didn’t buy ginger ale or skittles. Judy didn’t buy a caramel apple. Send me (Lorainia) your answer in a forum pm by 11:59 August 18 HOL time to receive 10 rubies.
  19. You peer round a corner, trying to track down the source of some rather odd singing. To your amazement, you see a gigantic carton of popcorn, an even larger cup and an sizable hotdog. They all appear to be singing and dancing a rather ungainly version of the cancan. “Let’s all go to the lobby, let’s all go to the lobby, let’s all go to the lobby, to get ourselves a treat!” You back away very slowly. Once you’re out of range though, you realise you do feel a little peckish. And why not? Snacks are a crucial part of many people’s movie going experience. Whether it’s a huge bucket of buttery popcorn or a bag of your favourite sweets, we’d love to hear about your ideal movie-watching accompaniment. You can do this one of several ways: tell us about your favourite nibbles in 80 words or more, create a digital graphic or make your ideal snack and photograph it for us. The photograph must be your own work and not borrowed from elsewhere on the internet. Also, if you don’t like to snack while you watch films, feel free to tell us why not. There are no wrong answers here! Post your response below by 11:59 PM HOL-time on 18 august to earn 10 rubies!
  20. Ready to embark on another magical adventure? Well then, step right this way and I’ll show you to your seat. For each of these weekly screenings, we’re inviting you to pick between two Harry Potter films. You should then go and watch the one you picked and come back to offer your thoughts. And when we say your thoughts, it really can be anything at all. Perhaps you like (or dislike) a particular scene. Maybe there’s a mistake or inaccuracy that bugs you. Maybe you’d like to cast somebody different in one of the roles. Providing it’s HOL appropriate and polite, anything goes. There is no wordcount but please try to put a bit of effort in. Our options this week are Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince. You can choose to watch them both if you’d like/have the time. Also, if you’re unable to access a copy of either film, feel free to join in the discussion anyway. The screening part is purely for fun. You’ll earn 5 rubies if you post your thoughts below by 11:59 PM HOL-time on 18 August.
