2018 Brings an End to “Harry Potter Weekend” on Freeform

You read that right folks. 2018 marks the first time in years that Freeform (formerly
ABC Family) will not air its infamous ‘Harry Potter Weekend’ marathons. This
comes as HBO struck a deal with the NBC Universal-owned franchise to be the host
for all eight movies. The last of these coveted marathons will run December 28-31
on Freeform. For HBO viewers, you can watch all of the movies from the beginning
on January 1, 2018 – they will be airing them consecutively, including Fantastic
Beasts And Where to Find Them.

You’ll need something to snack on while watching either of these marathons. Make
your own stovetop popcorn and grab some butterbeer and chocolate frogs!

Harry Potter Mobile Game Announced

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first mobile game that will bring players into
the world of Hogwarts. Players can create their own character and progress through
their time at Hogwarts like wizards and witches do: through activities like Dueling
Club and classes like Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts. Hopefully, we won’t
have to wait long for its release. According to Pottermore, “The new Hogwarts terms
start in September, but all we know at the moment is that Harry Potter: Hogwarts
Mystery will be available at some point next year.”
