A new Wizarding World-themed quiz event is coming soon to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, which now has a title and a very special host!

Award-winning actor Dame Helen Mirren is joining the Wizarding World family to host an exciting four-part quiz competition, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses. This special week of shows, which will offer fans the chance to win glory for their Hogwarts house, will be simucast on Cartoon Network and TBS, followed by its premiere on HBO Max later this year.

Featuring hundreds of trivia questions and special guest surprises, this unique competition will also invite fans to play along at home – to see who truly can achieve eternal glory! At the end of it all, a House Cup champion will be revealed.

For Helen Mirren, who famously portrayed Queen Elizabeth II, she’ll need to swap in her crown for a witch’s hat in this all-important new role.


“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 four-part 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!
