For all the Potterheads who’d rather practice “Wingardium Leviosa” than “I choose you,” there’s a new app concept out there. Drawing on the formula behind Niantic and Nintendo’s popular “Pokemon Go” app, Stargaze Media, a UK-based motion graphics and design studio, released a mockup for a hypothetical “Harry Potter Go” app.
The video imagines an app where users could track down fantastic beasts, choose a Hogwarts house and collect famous witches and wizards cards at “magic-stops.” Admittedly, some of these elements might not sit well with fans of the series. After all, would Hermione really approve of “hunt[ing]” non-wizards? You can check out the mockup for yourself below:
While Stargaze’s app concept is only hypothetical, Potter fans won’t have to wait long to explore more of J.K. Rowling’s beloved wizarding world. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” in theaters Nov. 16, and its 2018 sequel will expand on the “Harry Potter” universe. The films, both directed by David Yates and written by Rowling, follow the adventures of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist whose textbook is later used by students at Hogwarts.
