J.K. Rowling Reveals Wizarding Schools in Africa, South America, the US, and Asia

Hogwarts may be the setting of the wizarding world in the Harry Potter universe, but Goblet of Fire introduced us to France’s Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and northern Europe’s Durmstrang Institute.

Now, author J.K. Rowling just expanded the magical universe by revealing the names of four more wizarding schools: Uagadou on the African continent, Castelobruxo in Brazil, Ilvermorny in the US, and Mahoutokoro in Japan.

The news was revealed by the author on Pottermore, and offered some delicious details:

Uagadou is the largest wizarding school and is located in the mythical Mountains on the Moon. They accept students from all over the continent, and they teach wandless magic.

Ilvermorny might be the setting of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them film.

Mahoutokoro is known for its Quidditch, and first year students get robes that grow with them depending on how much they learned.

Rowling also revealed that there are a total of 11 schools. So apart from Hogwarts, Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, Durmstrang Institute, Uagadou, Castelobruxo, Ilvermorny, and Mahoutokoro, there are four more schools that have not been named.

Where do you think the other four are? Share your thoughts below!
