Hello all! As many of you must have noticed, there have been some changes to this wiki in terms of videos! Just to let you all know what is going on, I am going to list the changes that are being made (with permission from ProfessorTofty) of course.

More J.K. Rowling news: her book Casual Vacancy is out! The book is available in U.S. bookstores, in addition to a digital edition. It's also supposed to be released in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany.

It would make a mockery of what those books were to me. But ... if I did have a great idea for something else, I probably would do it. I am very averse to the prequel-sequel idea.

Let's take a moment to soak that in...ok, now time to go crazy! Combine these and that's me (but times 10) right now:

As many Harry Potter fans know, Sony has been developing a cool project called Wonderbook, and you can now see what that project is going to be like! The first game is called Wonderbook: Book of Spells and is planned to be released November 13.
Players will use the PlayStation Move and Eye to learn about and cast spells from the Harry Potter series, including Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa, and Harry’s own signature spell, Expelliarmus (but dark spells like Crucio and Avada Kedavra will probably not be included on the family friendly game)!
Enough of the talking, check the video out now to get a look at how the game will be!Read more >
