The competition will take the shape of a bracket-style game, where fans compete for their Hogwarts house in teams of three. The houses will go head-to-head in three special episodes (Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff will be the first) with the winning team advancing to the grand finale.
Alongside the glory of winning for their Hogwarts house, a huge roster of prizes will be on offer for the contestants, such as a $1000 shopping spree at the Harry Potter New York store, tickets to the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, advanced screenings for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and much more.

I knew someday I’d get a Harry Potter role, and I’m so pleased to take part in the 20-year film celebration,” said Mirren. “The films inspired such enchantment and wonder for so many of us, and it will be such a treat to reignite that magic for the countless fans who continue to revel in this spellbinding world.”
This series of quiz shows is set to be an unforgettable experience for Wizarding World fans, coming nearly two decades after the first film in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone if you’re in the US!) first hit cinema screens across the world. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses is part of the many celebrations surrounding this exceptional 20th anniversary – so keep an eye out for more!
