BBC and Comcast launch new Harry Potter series of programming

Pupils at Crouch End School in London will descend upon Hogwarts House parties this weekend to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the publication of J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” which had children everywhere, and adults, asking for chocolate frogs and wands. And they’ll be watching a special, never-before-seen trailer from the Harry Potter universe.

Comcast Entertainment Networks, parent company of the BBC, is launching on Wednesday an exclusive new Harry Potter series of programming on YouTube and BBC Global News. It will run until Feb. 7 and will introduce viewers to new characters, including Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley, Bill Weasley, Nancy Granger, Jake Lockley, and Sirius Black.

No other details were released at press time, but according to The Guardian, this is the first time viewers will have the opportunity to see all three Harry Potter movies together in one single video.

The Harry Potter studio tour located at Leavesden in the United Kingdom is also throwing an anniversary party, according to the “Daily Mail.”

The online Harry Potter portal is running a competition, asking viewers to guess who has one of the books out of the box.
