J.K Rowling to release four new 'Harry Potter' stories next month
Calling all Potterheads! This is not a drill! I repeat: calling all Potterheads! This is NOT a drill!
This week, J.K. Rowling thrilled fans everywhere by announcing she will be releasing four new Harry Potter books.
The new eBooks will be released on the "digital heart of the Wizarding World" Pottermore on June 27.
They are set to follow different Hogwarts lessons: Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology, Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy, and Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures.
Illustrated by London-based artist Rohan Daniel Eason, they promise to "take you back in time once again to learn about the traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories".
They will follow a similar format to the famous writer's other 'extra content' stories, Harry Potter – A History of Magic.
The announcement on the Pottermore website states: "Prepare to delve deeper into the rich history of magic (be it our own Muggle history, or the magical world created by J.K. Rowling) with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic."
Wondering how the cast is doing nowadays? You'll be happy to hear that the actor who played Victor Krum is just great and flaunting his insane muscles online:
The new eBooks are sure to fill a small portion of that boy wizard-sized gap we've had in our hearts since the last of the seven books in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released back in 2007.
Of course, they are certainly not the only extension of the wizarding world that Rowling has offered up; any good fan will know that there is also the spin-off film series Fantastic Beasts, the Cursed Child Broadway play, the Wizarding World theme parks and the augmented reality game Wizards Unite, among other things.
But, if you're still struggling to live without Harry - even with all of the extra content - you can always head down to stay in this luxury replica of Hagrid's cottage. Accio, bliss!
