Holy Flying Bludgers! There's a Quidditch Documentary?!?! in the living hell did I not know there was a documentary about Quidditch coming out?!  I mean, it's about humans Muggles playing the magical game on the ground, but this sounds like a fun night out at the movies.  And it's educational.  

UCLA film student Farzad Sangari follows the ULCA Quidditch team as they compete for the fifth annual Qudditch World Cup in New York in the documentary, Mudbloods.  There are a lot of people who groaned whenever they had to read a Quidditch passage in one of J. K. Rowling's books, so maybe they will be more inclined to view it in a feature documentary?  

The documentary raised a lot of money on Kickstarter and promises a portrait of "dreamers, creators and athletes who make up this exceptional community come together to make this magical sport into something you could've never imagine--until now."  Check out the story over at The Wrap, and Mudbloods debuts on VOD in October.

Ten points for all of us, indeed!
