E-mail Print PDF

From Jam City and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment --

Today, Jam City, a Los Angeles based mobile games studio, in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, announced a licensing agreement to create Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. The game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating gaming experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World.

"What an honor it is for Jam City to develop a mobile game for one of the largest and most iconic brands in history," said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City.  "As Harry Potter fanatics ourselves, we have great respect for the millions of people throughout the world who have followed the Harry Potter stories for more than 20 years.  This game is a labor of love for our developers and artists, who are dedicated to creating the most magical entertainment and game play experience for everyone who adores J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World."

The new game lets Harry Potter fans live the dream of becoming a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by creating their own character and progressing through their years at Hogwarts. Along the way players will participate in all of the magical classes and activities they have come to love - like Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Duelling Club, and more.  Most of the iconic professors from the Harry Potter stories reprise their roles in the game.

"Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a mobile gaming experience inspired by J.K. Rowling's spell-binding lore, and it will be an exciting, fun way for fans to experience the Wizarding World," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "It is great to work with Jam City on the game, as the company has a proven track record of bringing rich, beloved worlds to players of mobile entertainment."

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and will be available next year for mobile devices via the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore.  For more details on Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery as they are revealed, and to connect with other Harry Potter fans as you await your owl, visit www.facebook.com/HPHogwartsMystery/, www.twitter.com/HogwartsMystery, and for more information visit www.HarryPotterHogwartsMystery.com/.

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.
