The first installment in a collection of new original writing from Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling releases today. History of Magic in North America will release on the Pottermore website over four days (concluding March 11), with each day's story exploring a separate period of time in the history of North American witches and wizards from the world of Rowling’s Harry Potter series. These new stories set the scene for the forthcoming feature film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which Rowling is screenwriting. The film releases on November 18, 2016. Each of the pieces of writing will be released exclusively on Pottermore, each day at 2 P.M. GMT.
