J.K. Rowling's New Stories Prove The Wizarding World Is 'Larger Than You Imagined'

"Everything you think you know is about to change."

The wizarding world of Harry Potter continues to keep us under its spell. 

J.K. Rowling announced that she'll be releasing four brand new original stories, which will debut exclusively on Pottermore this week. The series, called "Magic in North America," will shed some light on a previously unexplored period of time in wizard history. 

The first story, "History of Magic in North America," is set to hit Rowling's interactive website tomorrow. Until then, you can catch a glimpse of the magic in this exclusive video from Entertainment Weekly

A few things you can expect to see in the series are skin-walkers; the Salem witch trials; Hogwarts' American counterpart, Ilvermorny; and the Magical Congress of the U.S.A.; all of which precede Newt Scamander's arrival in New York City and the subsequent events in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." 

As a note on Pottermore states, "You’ll want to get up to speed before the film comes around in November." 

We can't wait! 

"History of Magic in North America" will be published on Pottermore Tuesday at 2 p.m. GMT (9 a.m. ET).
