Pottermore is Making Some History

7 Mar 2016 - By TW Staff

Can't wait for the November 18 release of Warner Bros. Pictures' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, you say? We've got good news, indeed.

In preparation for the film's arrival later this year, J.K. Rowling has crafted a collection of new original writing entitled Magic in North America, to introduce audiences to a new place and time in the wizarding world that she has created.

The first installment, “History of Magic in North America,” was introduced today with the global launch of a 100-second specially produced video that serves as a prologue to the new original work.

The writing will be posted on pottermore.com over four consecutive days beginning tomorrow, March 8, at 6 a.m. PST. The four pieces will enlighten readers about a previously unexplored corner of the wizarding world: North American witches and wizards, their history and their magic.

The video broke simultaneously on selected media sites around the world and links viewers to “History of Magic in North America,” which will soon be available exclusively at pottermore.com.
