Filled with iconic Harry Potter scenes, trailers and backstage videos, the official YouTube channel for “J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World” wants to include creative videos sent by fans.
Created in July (2016), but only discovered by most fans recently, the channel will work as an official source for Harry Potter related videos as well as its expanded universe. The description says:
“Welcome to the official YouTube channel for J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World – showcasing official trailers, stories and behind the scenes videos from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the much-loved Harry Potter stories and some exciting extras.“
An announcement made by Pottermore recruited fans to send their own videos and feature on the channel. Interested people must fill a form available on the website and meet the requirements. The most important requirement is about the content, a list of themes can be found in the form along with other information.
They are exclusively looking for videos in English.
Some videos that were already on YouTube and met their standards were added to a playlist and can already be watched on the channel.
