The snowball of new Potter related content continues through 2016 with the beginning of a four part, History of Magic in North America ‘textbook’.

Serving as a prologue to the anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them the new four part series will expand the ever-growing world of magic across the Atlantic sea and into the United States of America.

Written with less colour but equal imagination to the original Potter series, the History of Magic in North America is being written and released in the style of a wizardry textbook.

The first part of the series covers the 14th-17th century and details the acknowledged existence of early American and African wizards by European magical communities long before Christopher Columbus left their shores.

We’re also given brief insight to new magical communities, such as Animagi and Skinwalkers, as well as some strange American jargon for Muggles, No-Maj.

The full release is available at https://www.pottermore.com/collection-episodic/history-of-magic-in-north-america-en

The Four part series comes on the tail of a specially produced, 100-second video, introducing us to the veiled, Magic America.

The culmination of teasers and new releases should have the Potter fandom weak in the knees for the November 18th release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The film will star Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne as the magical creature expert Newt Scamander, and take place in New York, 70 years before the events of Harry Potter.

The wizarding world you thought you knew is much larger than you imagined, but unfortunately Australia remains magic devoid, for now. The rest of the four part series will be available from 1AM AEDT over the next three days at Pottermore.com
