President Muad’Dib was recently interviewed by Metamora Films for an upcoming movie about forgiveness. Matthew Duhamel had a pleasant question and answer on Friday, January 10, 2014 at Dancing Cranes Imports. The questions covered aspects of what is forgiveness in Paganism (and more specifically Wicca), is there any divine mandate, and how do pagans view those who are commanded to forgive in the three Abrahamic religions. Look for the upcoming video release from the company around August-October 2014.

Harry Potter! Harry Potter! At least that’s what the members of UUPS were singing on Friday, July 15, 2011 at 11:20pm… the premiere of the 8th and final film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II

Megaplex 12 at the Gateway played host to a large number of Harry Potter fans. The crowed was a mix of muggles and wizarding folk. The movie itself was packed full of action, love, death, tragedy and a great story line.

“It was an amazing film. So well done. I was so sad to see it end. I just need to keep telling myself that there are the stories and that I can retell them to kids and find different was of keeping them alive in the future” Said Ember Fire.

Many tears were shed after the final scene. Young boys and girls, adults, elderly, UUPS members were all wiping their faces. “I was so sad when it ended. I feel like it’s equal to the space shuttle program… an era in human history is over. I grew up with Harry and his friends since I was 13. Now I know how those who were present when Star Wars first Came out, or Star Trek feel. The ending of a great saga which has greatly impacted human history.  I think Harry has done a great service to the Pagan community and how non pagans view the magical community. The HP impact seems to be a positive one.” Said President Muad’Dib.

Most of the members of UUPS and others are trying their best to have a positive outlook like Ember; finding a way to keep the stories alive. Some have even suggested they might write Harry Potter fan fiction novels

This past Friday, November 19, 2010, a few of the dedicated Harry Potter fans who are members of UUPS met at the Gateway theater in SLC, Ut to attend the premier of Part I of the Deathly Hallows. What an amazing event! UUPS members were not the only persons dressed to the T in proper wizarding regalia… a number of muggles turned up in hats and robes to show their support. Member Amber Hafen said “I was shocked and moved and can’t wait for the second one. The saddest part was when Dobby died. I couldn’t believe it! I was going ‘NOOOOO'”

President Muad’Dib said “This is one of the few times we can talk around and people don’t think we are just a bunch of weirdos in costume… right now we are just a bunch of people in costume!”

UUPS can’t wait for next year to attend the final end to the Epic Saga of love, magic, right, wrong and sparkly hats! Till next we meet!
