The Harry Potter tales are simply magical.
Literally… Because they’re all about magic.
The wizarding world of Harry Potter was first born in Edinburgh, Scotland.
While sitting in a small coffee shop, the British author, J.K. Rowling brought to life something rather spectacular.
She created a whole new world...
And everyone wanted to be a part of it.
And quite understandably so.
With dragons, moving photographs, giant snakes, pumpkin juice, and the flying-broomstick sport of Quidditch, millions of people all over the world have been keen to get involved with the Harry Potter way of life.
The world has become Harry Potter obsessed.
And we all believed that we were going to receive a letter from Hogwarts in the mail when we were eleven-years-old… No? Just me?
Spanning across 7 novels...
And 8 movie adaptations, Harry Potter has become a global phenomenon.
When the final movie was released in 2011, Harry Potter fans far and wide were itching for more.
Sure, we've been treated to the odd reunion pic...
Emma Watson posted this snap with her fellow Hogwarts co-stars, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Bonnie Wright (Ginnie Weasley), and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) along with the caption “Merry Christmas from us.”
We also got the news that the biggest Harry Potter store in the world is set to open this year in New York City.
It’ll be the largest store specifically dedicated to all things wizarding on the globe!
And it truly sounds amazing.
Sarah Roots, who is the Senior Vice President of Worldwide Tours and Retail, Warner Bros, said in the press release: “This will be the largest dedicated Harry Potter store in the world and will become a must-visit fan destination where Harry Potter enthusiasts can engage with interactive experiences and numerous photo opportunities as they step into the magic.”
“We are very excited to be opening in New York. It’s the ideal city in which to launch with so many dedicated Wizarding World fans, a cutting-edge retail environment and a community that embraces innovative experiences.”
It will be in the heart of NYC.
The store will host the ‘the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products in the world under one roof with everything from personalized robes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to a brand-new range of house wands with a design exclusive to the New York location’. And it’s going to be set right in the very heart of the Big Apple, located next to the iconic Flatiron building on Broadway.
But the latest Potter-related news is possibly the best yet...
Ever wondered what it would be like to study at Hogwarts? Well, now you can…
A website has launched where you can enroll in online classes at the magical school.
The best part? It’s totally free.
Run solely by a team of Potterheads, the site, titled "Hogwarts is Here," allows you to enroll in realistic online courses.
Classes include the infamous Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions – along with a whole host of others about the history of the magic, O.W.L.S exams, and magical transportation.
You can even complete real assignments graded by the team’s Hogwarts professors.
It doesn’t end there either… you can even earn house points while you study!
When you sign up, you get to choose your character or you can use your own name.
You can then join or even make a dorm based on your house where you can socialize with your own private group of classmates.
There are even options for those who don't want to be a student...
You can be a House ghost, auror or a magical creature expert, to name a few.
It's truly a dream world for Potter fanatics.
And a sure-fire way to bust that self-isolation boredom.
