Elastic Animation Teases New J.K. Rowling Pottermore Stories

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is releasing a new series of short stories this week on her website Pottermore. The stories set up the history of magic in North America, the background for her expanded universe which will soon be found in the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The site has released a new 90-second animation from Elastic, directed by Andy Hall, which teases the new stories. The beautiful piece is reminiscent of the Harry Potter world, specifically the animated “Tale of the Three Brothers” found in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

Watch it below.
