As you may already know, the Wizarding World is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first film that started it all: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. As part of the celebration events, a new Wizarding World trivia event is coming soon as a TV show.
This show, which will offer fans of the saga the chance to win glory for their Hogwarts house, will be called Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses. It will be filmed later this month and will premiere later this year on Cartoon Network and TBS. It will then be available to view on HBO Max.
British actress Dame Helen Mirren will host the show. Mirren has been recognized with prestigious awards including an Academy Award, four BAFTA Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and many more. Her lengthy career on stage and on film includes more than 140 productions. She is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen.
Mirren shared in a press release, “I knew someday I’d get a Harry Potter role, and I’m so pleased to take part in the 20-year film celebration”. She also added, “The films inspired such enchantment and wonder for so many of us, and it will be such a treat to reignite that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this spellbinding world.”
“We’re creating an arena for the leagues of ‘Harry Potter’ film fans to flex their knowledge of the Wizarding World, and there’s no one better than Dame Helen Mirren to add some British grandeur to this event that will debut across our WarnerMedia brands and platforms,” said Tom Ascheim in an interview for Variety. Ascheim is president of Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses will be a four-part series featuring hundreds of trivia questions, plus surprise special guests. This will be an unforgettable experience for magical fans to enjoy at home.
