Four new pieces of writing from the Harry Potter author have been announced, with the first available to read on Harry Potter website Pottermore.com from tomorrow afternoon. Find out all about the new series below.
What are the new Harry Potter stories called?
The new series by JK Rowling is titled Magic in North America. The first in this series is an essay titled ‘History of Magic in North America’, and will be published in four parts on Pottermore website.
“Magic in North America will bring to light the history of this previously unexplored corner of the wizarding world in the run up to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the site explains, meaning that by the time Redmayne joins the Potter universe in November we should be well up to speed.
“The wizarding world you thought you knew is much larger than you imagined,” a video explaining the new series teases, adding that one part of the new stories will explain the history of US wizarding school Ilvermorny.
The pieces will also explain the Native American legend of ‘Skin-walkers’, the history of the Salem witch trials, and the American equivalent of the Ministry of Magic, the ‘Magical Congress of the United States of America’.
