Wizarding Wednesdays are back for another year ahead of the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, offering fans the chance to put their name into a less terrifying version of the Goblet of Fire, and win some once-in-a-lifetime Wizarding World prizes and experiences!

First on the list today, the first Wizarding Wednesday is a huge prize: the chance for you and a friend to attend the premiere of Crimes of Grindelwald, giving you the possibility of seeing Eddie Redmayne, Alison Sudol, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Jude Law, Callum Turner, Zoë Kravitz and possibly even J.K .Rowling herself on the red carpet. Here’s a special video from the cast announcing the return of the weekly giveaways:

Today also marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’s arrival in the U.S., so this is a suitably exciting giveaway for such another milestone day for J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World!  Unfortunately the giveaways are only open to residents of the U.K. and Republic of Ireland, so No-Majes outside of these areas will have to be on the look out for other giveaways (rest assured, we’ll keep you posted).

The list of upcoming prizes in the Wednesdays leading up to the release of Crime of Grindelwald on November 16th includes some amazing prizes, from multiple opportunities to attend a regional premiere of the film (Paris and London) to the opportunity to win tickets to Cursed Child in London, win a signed Crimes poster or a signed MinaLima print, and even the opportunity to be an extra on set of the third Fantastic Beasts film.
