Get ready, witches and wizards, because the story of Harry Potter isn’t over just yet! More than 18 years since the first movie premiered, the company behind the magic just announced that there’s a brand new video series in the works.
Yup, that’s right. The new series is called Wizarding World Originals, and according to its website, it’s “set to unravel the mysteries and uncover the secrets from all corners of the Wizarding World.”
Wow, how awesome does that sound?! But wait, where will fans be able to watch it? Unfortunately, the new video series won’t be hitting any movie theaters or TV screens. The Harry Potter official fan club (which is run by J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros.), just revealed that they’re offering a new 12-month streaming service, called Wizarding World Gold. For $74.99 a year, HP fans will be able to access the new video series, plus exclusive merchandise, discounts and first access to special events, all seven books and more!
Subscribers will also receive a magical welcome gift, which will include a print of J.K.’s original sketch of Hogwarts, an exclusive collectible pin and a personalized, interactive journal called Keys and Curios. The journal will have your name and Hogwarts House engraved in it — how cool is that?! That’s not all. The diary will also offer enchanted keys that you can use to access exclusive content on the website and app! And get this — Keys and Curios was designed by the graphic design team behind the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, MinaLima.
It’s currently available for UK and US-based fans, with more countries to follow in the coming months. You can preorder it here. Although there’s no official release date yet, according to the website, it’s set to premiere “this autumn.” This is seriously the best news ever.
