In preparation for the Fantastic Beasts movie release, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is expanding.

Titled The History of Magic in North America, the stories will appear on Pottermore, the official Harry Potter website. People, which has an exclusive trailer for the series, states that the four stories will cover the following topics:
- The U.S. Hogwarts, Ilvermorny
- The Native American legend of skin-walkers,
- The Salem witch trials, a formative event for the country’s national magical identity
- The U.S. version of the Ministry of Magic, the Magical Congress of the United States of America
The magical stories will lay out the world of magic in North America in preparation for the November release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
