Harry Potter fans just can’t get enough of the wizarding world. With the date looming for the next Harry Potter adventure, J.K Rowling has provided us with teasers of what is to come.

Pay attention Muggles! This is what you have been waiting for. Harry Potter has broadened his horizons from King’s Cross to North America.

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 writing by J.K. Rowling. The writing will be posted on pottermore.com over four consecutive days beginning tomorrow, March 9th, at 1am AEDT. These 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 will be available exclusively at pottermore.com.

The video and the writing set the scene for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which will be released on November 17.

Rowling, who first conceived the wizarding world in her enormously popular Harry Potter books, had introduced wizards and witches from other parts of Europe in the series, most notably in the Quidditch World Cup and Triwizard Tournament. However, this marks the first time we’ll learn the fascinating story of the history of magic in North America.
