J.K. Rowling will release 12 new Harry Potter stories over Christmas

J.K. Rowling has announced a Christmas treat for Harry Potter fans, promising the publication of twelve new writings via the popular interactive site, Pottermore.

Kicking off on 12 December, fans will be able to find a new post from Rowling every day up to and including Christmas Eve, which is vastly more exciting than an advent calendar chocolate.

According to Rowling, the posts will include a ghost story, a new potion recipe, and her thoughts on Harry’s nemesis, Draco Malfoy, alongside a host of other treats and surprises.

Rowling recently completed work on her very first screenplay, having turned in the finished script for forthcoming Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

Set some 70 years before the events of the main series, the film will follow the adventures of magical creatures expert, Newt Scamander, and will open in the UK and US on 18 November 2016.
