All those Harry Potter fans craving more of our favourite bespectacled hero can rejoice: JK Rowling has officially announced a brand new short story series via Pottermore.

More shenanigans are expected at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, courtesy of a quartet of new eBooks.

The 53-year-old author is releasing four short stories in an all-new series entitled Harry Potter: A Journey Through…

The franchise takes inspiration from the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

According to Pottermore, “In addition to exploring the origins of magic through history and folklore, the eBook shorts will also feature notes, manuscript pages and charming sketches as previously seen in Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”

Each tale is created to teach readers a new Hogwarts lesson, while staying true to the original folklore and magic of the classic book series.

The crew over at the BBC have announced that a new documentary will be released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

This will coincide with a delightful exhibition at The British Library called Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

The doc will go behind the scenes of the exhibit, bringing the magical experience to those of us outside the UK.

The exhibition is set to feature relics from the wizarding world and JK Rowling's personal collections. 

'A History Of Magic includes an interview with J.K. Rowling talking about some of the personal items she has donated to the exhibition whilst readings from famous fans playfully recreate some of the best loved spells, potions and magical moments from the series, exploring the origins of the world of Hogwarts, from basilisks through to broomsticks,' reads the BBC's description.

The documentary doesn't yet have a release date, but we're hoping it won't be too long before the doc is on our screens. 

Until then, we'll be donning our Harry Potter pjs and rewatching the entire series.
