US Harry Potter Revealed!

JK Rowling, author of the famous Harry Potter series, has given us some information on the new houses that feature in the new spin-off film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The magic school in the new film will be in the USA, and is called Illvermorny, which has four houses just like Hogwarts.

They are; Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, and Pukwudgie.


In an interview over the new school and houses, JK said that some people have already given their ideas as to what they think each house means.

So, Horned Serpent has more scholars, and people who are eager to learn. Wampus values warriors, those who are brave and strong. Pukwudgie houses healers and helpers. Last but not least, Thunderbird encourages adventurers.

The rules are a little different in this school, due to the fact that this film will be set in the 1920’s.

Wands were not allowed to be taken out of school, and were only given when the students got to the school.

I mean, we all know how out of hand things can get with wands outside of school. Remember Aunt Marge?

And Ron’s accident in The Chamber of Secrets?


He tried bless him.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released later this year in November! In the mean time, I’m thinking a Harry Potter marathon is in order.
