J.K. Rowling Confirms American Version of Hogwarts Exists

The first thing many  kids did on their eleventh birthday was check the mailbox for their own Hogwarts letter. Unfortunately, they were devastated when it never arrived. Maybe it was the owl… perhaps it got lost or was related to Errol, the Weasley’s family owl who didn’t know which way was up or down. The dream of attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was quickly destroyed.

J.K Rowling has reopened millions of people’s dreams of attending a wizarding school. In the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Rowling basically confirmed the existence of an American wizarding school that may play a part in the film.

Fans tweeted questions at Rowling, some of which she responded to, revealing many clues about the new school.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the story of Newt Scamander, a Hogwarts alumni who is a magizoologist that ends up in New York. Warner Brothers released just last week that the role of Newt will be played by none other than Eddie Redmayne. Rowling is writing the screenplay for the new film, while Harry Potter director David Yates will be joining the team to direct for the famous author once again. Fantastic Beasts will be out November 18th, 2016.
