It’s going to be a magical Christmas, after all.

J.K. Rowling will release 12 Harry Potter short stories this month in celebration of the 12 days of Christmas, the Telegraph reports. At least one of the stories will reportedly focus on Harry’s nemesis Draco Malfoy.

The author made the announcement in a newsletter to Harry Potter publishing website Pottermore members on Friday. The installments will be posted online daily beginning on Friday, December 12, at 5 a.m. PT and continuing until Christmas Eve.

Pottermore teased “wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from ‘Half-Blood Prince,’ shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two.”

Rowling wrote 5,000 words for Pottermore on Halloween about another character, Dolores Umbridge — a teacher at Hogwarts.

  1. I really wish the media would stop referring to these Pottermore essays and character bios as “short stories”. They’re not short stories, and while they are cool, we’ve gotten dozens and dozens of them over the last three years (not exactly a huge deal at this point). It just feels like click-bait.

    These articles always people all riled up and excited, expecting actual new narrative stories when that’s rarely what’s delivered.

    Franchise slums.

    Endless, endless franchise slums.

    Smile button cult of Saturn —–franchise slums.

  5. I just knew that Ms. Rowling wasn’t finish with the Harry Potter series. I can’t wait to see what will happened in the 12 short tales.
