The good news is that J.K. Rowling has teased some (very minor) new information about the American wizarding world of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film spinoff. The bad news is that we’re more likely to get a Harry Potter opera or ice ballet than a TV show.
Once again taking to Twitter, Rowling shared a little bit of new information about the international system of wizarding government, tweeting that unlike the Muggle U.S. Congress, the governing body of American wizards is a single body. She also wrote that the International Confederation of Wizards is the wizarding equivalent to the United Nations.
Another reader also asked if a Harry Potter TV show was on the horizon. (After all, there are three spinoff movies and a play in the works.) Unfortunately, Rowling quickly shut that idea down. “Right after the opera, Potter-on-ice and the interpretative dance version of Beedle the Bard,” she wrote about a potential TV series. Which is kind of a shame. Imagine Quidditch on ice.
