The New 'Carpool Karaoke' Featuring 'Game Of Thrones' Stars Is Everything You Want

James Corden’s video segment on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, “Carpool Karaoke” is now Carpool Karaoke: The Series. This is obviously pretty exciting news, because the videos of everyone’s favorite celebrities singing along to their own music are wildly popular, but sadly short. Apple Music has taken the concept and turned it into a full show, so you get more of your beloved TV, music, and movie stars driving around than ever.

And look who they’re teasing you with:

Entertainment Weeklyreports that Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner filmed their episode during a visit to Austin, Texas, at the South by Southwest festival in March. Their episode premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m., but if you’re wondering how they’ll fill a half hour program about karaoke with the antics of two actors who don’t sing, a new teaser is very illuminating.

In this clip, Williams and Turner play a game they claim was popular on set the first season of GoT: just take an ordinary sentence and try to say it like Ned Stark. I know, he died so long ago, but the girl’s impressions will bring it all right back:

They do tie it into music by featuring popular music quotes, like, “Becky, look at her butt.” It’s amazing, you really can hear Ned Stark asking you to look at a woman’s butt!

Hard to wait for the rest of the episode, but enjoy this clip of the girls singing Hakuna Matata to the Game of Thrones theme song to get you through:

'Making A Murderer' Is Getting A Second Season, Here's Everything We Know

Remember earlier this year when everyone was losing their minds over Making A Murderer? Well, Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are about to make a return. Netflix has confirmed that season 2 is currently in production. 

The new episodes will feature Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner as she takes on the case. In a statement, show runners Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said:

“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series.

“The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”

There’s no word on when it will be released, or how many episodes we’ll get, so we’re just going to have to wait patiently for that. 

If you’ve forgotten the facts, here’s a quick run down. In 1985, Avery was wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years for sexual assault. He was set free in 2003 after advances proved that it was another man. But he Dassey were quickly accused and found guilty of murdering 25-year-old Teresa Halbach. 

Many believe that they were set up by police in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, to avoid a $ 36 million lawsuit for the wrongful conviction. You can read more about that here

Fans are understandably excited by the show’s return…

J.K. Rowling Told Us Everything We Need To Know About The American Wizarding School

In anticipation for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts, J.K. Rowling has written some background to the American School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Ilvermorny.

The houses for Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are each named after the favorite magical creature of the family members who founded the school. While we don’t yet know the complete personality profiles of each house, here they are: 

Wampus, which “favors warriors.”

One of two sons, Webster Boot, chose Wampus, because he was “argumentative but fiercely loyal.”

 

Horned Serpent, which “favors scholars.”

sub-buzz-8796-1467127403-2

Mother to the family Isolt Sayre chose the Horned Serpent because she felt a kinship with the creature.

Pukwudgie, which “favors healers.”

The father of the family, James Steward, chose the Pukwudgie because Isolt made a joke about one once. Classic dad move. 

And Thunderbird, which “favors adventurers.”

The second brother, Chadwick Boot, chose Thunderbird, because they were “intelligent but often temperamental.”

The complete history of the school is here, but summarized the best snippets below:

Isolt was born in around 1603 and fled Ireland for America to escape her abusive aunt, Gormlaith Gaunt. The Gaunts are ancestors of Voldemort. 

In America she met James Steward, a muggle who saw her using magic. She had planned to kill Steward, but they instead fell in love and adopted two orphaned magical boys, Chadwick and Webster.

Isolt set up Ilvermorny for magical children and named it after her childhood home in Ireland. 

Ilvermorny runs in a similar fashion to Hogwarts because Isolt had read about the school in England. 

At one point, Isolt discovers that her wand belonged to Salazar Slytherin and contained basilisk horn. They buried the wand, but it soon sprouted a snakewood tree.

The robes of the school are blue and cranberry because Isolt wanted to be in Ravenclaw as a child and James loved cranberry pie. 

And yes, you can get sorted into your own Ilvermorny house if you don’t fancy going to Hogwarts after Brexit.
