Beedle the Bard NYC Unveiling; Arthur Levine Interview

E-mail Print PDF

To mark the release of J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard tomorrow, December 4th, Scholastic's Harry Potter editor Arthur Levine today placed his original Beedle the Bard book to be on display for one month, beginning tomorrow and ending on January 4th, at the New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library located at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.

TheDailySnitcher was at the unveiling and we have the following quotes from Arthur Levine! Photos can be seen here!

About his favorite tale from the book, The Fountain of Fair Fortune:

"It has that quality of being - feeling like it's existed forever" and has "strong, interesting female characters" and that it "still feels original and surprising; it's hard to be a folktale and be original."

Also, J.K. Rowling did give him a tip to let him know that the book would be coming, which is marked 5/7.

She called to tell me that i should be on the lookout for this. It was a little bit of a surprise how it came; but she warned me in advance ... so that it wouldn't be someone else's surprise.

My feelings about Beedle are very personal. I remember the moment I opened the package and saw this beautiful object that Jo had sent. Something she'd made with her own hands and her own unique imagination. What could an editor treasure more from his author? Only the friendship the gift represents.

Additionally, the gemstone on the cover of his copy is that of a tourmaline, which is his son's birthstone.

Also of note is that after the display of his book at the New York library ends next month, Arthur would like to donate his book to his alma mater, Brown University, and that Scholastic's Barry Cunningham received an original copy as welll and lent it to the National Library of Scotland.

Scholastic is donating three copies of the book to each of 87 branches of the New York Public Library. 

All proceeds from the book benefit the Children's High Level Group.

Jam City Unveils Teaser Trailer and New Details for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Mobile Game

E-mail Print PDF

From Jam City --

Today, Jam City, a Los Angeles based mobile games studio, in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, revealed new details for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery -- including the game's first teaser trailer.  Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. In the roleplaying game, players will create a personalized student avatar, attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character's story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts and grow as a witch or wizard.  The game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World.

Before launching this spring, the title will be introduced to fans at the upcoming A Celebration of Harry Potter event at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida from January 26-28. There, attendees will be able to go behind the scenes via two panels hosted by the Jam City team as well as visiting the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery booth to receive exclusive swag, play the game, meet members of the game team, and experience other magical surprises.

"Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a role playing experience about magic, friendship, and life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry," said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City.  "We can't wait to give fans a first look at the game at A Celebration of Harry Potter, and this spring players will be able to explore Hogwarts fully in their journey toward becoming a witch or wizard."

The game is set in the time between Harry Potter's birth and his enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students. The avatar customization system allows you to continually upgrade your avatar as you gain new expertise and magical skills - you can even choose your own pet. You will join one of the four Houses before progressing through your years at Hogwarts, participating in magical classes and activities such as Potions and Transfiguration.  Building your skills will come in handy as you solve mysteries and go on adventures. As players improve their skills, they will unlock new locations, spells and other magical abilities. 

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery features both large plot arcs and smaller stories such as relationship quests. The game features a new encounter system in which player's decisions in both actions and narrative impact their quests, and how other characters regard and interact with them. These choices will allow Harry Potter fans to create the legacy of the witch or wizard they want to become.  

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, developed by Jam City and will be released this spring for mobile devices under Portkey Games, the new label for gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World. The title will be available on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.
