Written by

Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin are so yesterday, get ready to find out into which house you'll be sorted, as Hogwarts goes stateside in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Prepare for an influx of Internet quizzes, America's Hogwarts, also known as Ilvermorny, has been assigned its school houses. These key insights into Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was stumbled upon by Harry Potter fan, Federico Ian Cervantez, while he was trailing through the javascript for the website Pottermore. This website was established to expand the world of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels. More specifically, Cervantez came across a new quiz that was being developed for the Pottermore site which was named: "Where do you belong? Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, or Pukwudgie..." We here at melty have decided that Pukwudgie could also be in the running for a new curse word. A featurette for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them teases the film's four central characters, we wonder which house they would fall into at Ilvermony?

Amongst other information included in the quiz, Comicbook.com was able to deduce the characteristics of each house. The Horned Serpent is described as being a dragon-like serpent, and is able to control stormy weather and shape shift. The Wampus is similar to a cat, and is described as being likened to a cougar. The Thunderbird, is described as being a very large bird which can also generate stormy weather and judging by its name, it could represent the more gallant house. Last but not least we come to the Pukwudgie, which is very small and shaped like a human, except it has larger facial features and grey skin that can glow, it can also transfigure and become invisible. Now we know about these new houses the question now is, how do the students get sorted? For more info on the upcoming film, check out what J.K. Rowling thought when she paid a visit to the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. What house in Ilvermorny would you like to be sorted into?
