LOS ANGELES-A new, Harry Potter-based fan activist group called the Fwooper Foundation launches today in hopes of using the upcoming Harry Potter trilogy, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as a way to get the Potter Community excited about helping the "fantastic beasts" in our world.
The "Fwooper," is a magical creature found in the Harry Potter series and is described by world-renowned magizoologist Newt Scamander in his bestselling book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as an African bird with extremely vivid plumage in colors of orange, pink, lime green or yellow. The Fwoopers' song is so powerful that they must be sold with a Silencing Charm on them. The Fwooper Foundation derives their slogan "Breaking the Silencing Charm" from this practice.
"The Fwooper Foundation believes that the creatures in our world do have a voice and that they are crying out for our help. Unfortunately, society has cast a Silencing Charm over their pleas for rescue, and that is why it is our job to break it," says Fwooper Foundation Executive Director Tylor Starr. "Animals who suffer at the hands of the Dark Arts for our food, clothing, and entertainment are abused in the worst ways imaginable. We all can choose to be like Hermione Granger and help make our world a better place for the real fantastic beasts."
