The premium network announced today that all eight films in the Harry Potter franchise will be available starting on January 1st, 2018.

Publisher Warner Bros Interactive owns the video game rights to the Harry Potter series.

Little is known about the new app, but TechCrunch reports it will use the Niantic game Ingress which allows players to interact with their physical environment in both the real and virtual worlds, similarly to Pokemon Go.

Remember previous year when the world lost its mind and spent several months solid playing Pokemon Go?! Players will move through their physical world to collect power-ups and defend locations (presumably, similar to Pokémon Go's gym system).

Following the extreme success of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs has its latest augmented reality title that will totally have fans of J.K. Rowling's literary works super thrilled.

Niantic Labs said that the development of "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite" will not be possible without "Pokemon Go", which has brought in huge income for the company since its launch in 2016.

HBO announced Thursday that it will be the only place to stream all eight Harry Potter movies starting January 1, 2018.

The game "will reveal that magic is all around us", reads the press release. In regards to the "learn and cast spells" bit, that has a lot of promise to feel great using your phone's motion sensors and I can only imagine which "mysterious artifacts" we'll be able to find.

The Harry Potter AR game has been long rumored but was ultimately labeled a hoax by fact-checking site Snopes. The working of the game is same as of Pokemon Go.
