Harry Potter Character's Inclusion in Fantastic Beasts 2 Could Be a Major Continuity Error

​Any casting announcement for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been extremely exciting for Harry Potter fans. But they've been scratching their heads at how the sequel could feature a character we know for a fact wasn't yet born at the time the film takes place.

Last week, it was ​revealed that Fiona Glascott would be playing a young Minerva McGonagall—a favorite character from the original Harry Potter books and movies—in the newest installment of the Wizarding World series. It was assumed we would be getting a glimpse into her life leading up to becoming a professor at Hogwarts ... but that actually wouldn't make sense.

According to ​Screen Rant, The Crimes of Grindelwald takes place in 1927, but McGonagall wasn't born until 1935. Of course, fans have taken to social media to point out this seemingly big error.

Many are now trying to figure out how McGonagall could possibly be worked into the film—possibly as a look into the future for Jude Law's Dumbledore? Others are guessing it might be another character by the name of Minerva McGonagall, but that doesn't seem likely.

It seems like this might just be a major continuity error, unfortunately, but we're waiting patiently for JK Rowling to tell us for sure. Or we'll just have to wait until The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 16 to find out for ourselves.

Watch One Second From Every Game of Thrones Episode in Under Two Minutes

Game of Thrones aired its final episode on May 19, and despite some harsh reviews, many fans are finding it hard to accept the show’s end. While some consider Thrones counseling or rewatching the series with a tissue box handy, others on the internet are creating really cool montage videos.

Twitter user Andy Kelly recently posted a fan-made video of one-second clips from all 73 Game of Thrones episodes. The video shows the most memorable scenes from the series, such as Ned Stark’s decapitation, the Red Wedding, King Joffrey being poisoned, Jon Snow’s resurrection, the killing of the Night King, and Daenerys Targaryen’s death.

You really can’t capture all of the action-packed events and shocking twists that happened within the eight seasons of Game of Thrones so quickly, but the video does a good job of giving encapsulating it in under two minutes. And it’s easier than binge-watching it again.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Us What a Game of Thrones/Full House Mashup Would Look Like

Two of the least-similar shows in television history just came together … in a parody courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The hilarious video depicts a hypothetical Game of Thrones spinoff series where Jaime Lannister joins two classic characters from Full House for a show appropriately titled Full House Lannister.

While there is at least one Thrones spinoff already in the works, Kimmel couldn’t wait for the series to premiere, so he made his own to deal with the post-Thrones blues.

The video starts off in typical Full House fashion with Joey (Dave Coulier) trying to open a pickle jar, which Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) stabs with his sword and destroys. After a few pun-filled jokes, Jaime gets upset and Danny (Bob Saget) sits down with him to talk. Jaime explains that he had a fight with his sister, but when he reveals it’s because he got Cersei pregnant again, a creeped out Danny flees the situation. Joey then comes over to seemingly console Jaime, but instead hilariously says, “I was just going to tell you to stop f***ing your sister.”

The parody perfectly combines the silliness of Full House and the darker topics of Game of Thrones—and the cherry on top is a shadow of a dragon flying over San Francisco in the credits.
