The first chapter will be released on Pottermore on Tuesday March 8 at 9 am ET, with the rest probably appearing daily, as the announcement states, "this week".

The stories will explore the wizarding history in North America. We'll also learn the names of the U.S. versions of Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic in the stories, as we explore the school of Ilvermorny and the Magical Congress of the USA.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released in theaters on Nov. 18, 2016.
