Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Revealed: The four Houses of American Hogwarts

The Daily Mail reports that they were able to get a sneak peek at the four houses of the American School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Ilvermorny, featured in the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Federico Ian Cervantez accidentally discovered that the four houses on the Pottermore site. The houses of Ilvermorny are Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird and Pukwudgie. Furthermore they are described as:

The Horned Serpent is described as 'dragon-like serpents with horns and long teeth. They are often associated with or said to control the weather, particularly rain, lightning, and thunder. Magical abilities ascribed to them include shape-shifting, invisibility, and hypnotic powers'

The Wampus is a cat-like creature 'described as some kind of fearsome variation of a cougar'.

The Thunderbird is a legendary creature 'often described as a very large bird, capable of generating storms and thunder as it flies'.

The Pukwudgie is:  'two-to-three-feet tall and human-shaped, but with a larger nose, ears, and fingers and smooth, grey skin that sometimes glows. Its magical abilities include disappearing and reappearing, partial or complete transformation into a porcupine or cougar, and creating fire'.

What house do you think the American sorting hat would place you in?

While the movie doesn't have Harry Potter in it, it is still an amazing story set in the same world. Think 1920's American Wizards meet some folks from Hogwarts. Release date: November 18, 2016 (USA)
