Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling is setting the stage for the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The writer is releasing exclusive content on Pottermore.com today that centers around the North American School Of Magic!
Here’s a bit more information:
“Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,’ the second installment in a collection of new original writing by J.K. Rowling entitled Magic in North America, will be published today exclusively on pottermore.com. ‘Ilvermorny’ (Ill-ver-morn-ee’) provides a vivid and captivating backstory of the great North American school of magic, founded in the 17th century.”
On top of all this, you can now be sorted into Ilivermorny houses. The house descriptions sound pretty cool if you ask me:
Horned Serpent; a ‘great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead’
Pukwudgie; ‘a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature’
Thunderbird; a creature that ‘can create storms as it flies’
Wampus; ‘a magical, panther-like creature that is fast, strong and almost impossible to kill’
This is yet another reason why I realize that I need to be on Pottermore. She’s constantly releasing exclusive content on the website, and even though it’s not always as dramatic and huge as this, it’s something. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter head on over, and perhaps I will too!
