“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has disclosed details about new wizarding schools in Brazil and other parts of the world, which were not previously mentioned in any of her fantasy novels. According to Elite Daily, this revelation is another expansion of the magical world of Harry Potter, the movie series which ended a few years back.
Rowling noted that the wizarding school in Brazil is called Castelobruxo. This magical school, as per Elite Daily, is the learning facility for witches and wizards in South America. The main focus on the studies in this wizarding school is magizoology and herbology.
In a Pottermore webpage, Rowling said that the learning avenue in Brazil is hidden in a rainforest, which appears as a ruin to the eyes of some Muggles (persons with no magical ability).
“Castelobruxo is an imposing square edifice of golden rock, often compared to a temple,” read its description on Pottermore. Founded in 2009, Pottermore is a website that reveals unknown details in the Harry Potter series. It was developed by Rowling herself, in partnership with Sony.
The details on the website further revealed that the building and its grounds are being watched by small spirit-beings called “Caipora.” On the other hand, its students are said to be always dressed in bright green robes.
Aside from the Brazilian wizarding school, Rowling also revealed two more schools in Japan (Mahoutokoro) and Africa (Uagadou). Uagadou, as per Elite Daily, is considered to be the largest wizarding school in the world while Mahoutokoro is the smallest.
In an AV Club report, Rowling also noted that there are 11 wizarding schools in the world as far as her magical tale is concerned. Among these schools are the famous ones like Hogwarts, Durmstrang and Beauxbatons, which were featured on the “Harry Potter” series.
Earlier this week, Pottermore announced that the magical school in North America is called Ilvermorny. During the kickoff of the Celebration of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando Resort on Friday, actress Evanna Lynch made the announcement on behalf of Rowling which made “Harry Potter” fans ecstatic.
Aside from the good news, People said that many people following the “Harry Potter” craze should also look forward to the release of the movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” this coming fall…”
