Exciting NEW Content from JK Rowling: Magic in North America

Following on from my post earlier this year regarding JK Rowling's revelation about International Wizarding Schools (you can read about that here) yesterday, it was announced that we will finally get a little taste of what life is like for Wizards in North America...

Many people were quite disappointed back in February when Rowling released her snippets about additional Wizarding Schools around the world due to the lack of information provided about North America and more specifically, its school Ilvermorny. Those people yesterday had their wishes well and truly granted.


Proving that there is always method behind her 'madness', yesterday Rowling announced via
Pottermore a new and exclusive web series: Magic In North America. This brand new content written by Rowling exclusively for Pottermore will focus on the North American Wizarding community and will not only reveal a little more about Wizarding School Ilvermorny, but also:

  • The Salem Witch Trials
  • Skin Walkers - a magical Native American Legend
  • The Magical Congress of The United States of America
There is no doubt that these writings will be tied in with upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them which focuses on Newt Scamander (played by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne) and his adventures around New York approximately seventy years before the events of the Harry Potter series.


I for one am incredibly excited about this and luckily, we don't have to wait very long for the new story at all: Simply check in to Pottermore today at 2pm (GMT) for the first part of Magic In North America.

Update: As it's now 2pm (GMT) the first bit of info has been released here. We also now know that this is the first of a four part series which will be released chronologically throughout this week at 2pm each afternoon. EXCITING STUFF.
