TBS and Cartoon Network’s trivia extravaganza Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses airs a trailer starring its enchanting host, Helen Mirren.
TBS and Cartoon Networks event in four parts Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses has released a magic trailer for the upcoming trivia show.
The trailer opens with the event’s enchanting host, Helen Mirren, emerging from an elaborate fireplace set shrouded in darkness. “This is the night you’ve been waiting for,” she proclaims. She goes on to explain the premise of the show, which involves groups of real fans divided into the four Hogwarts houses in Harry Potter books and movies. During the event, the houses will go head-to-head in one Harry Potter trivia tournament of epic proportions.
In addition to Mirren, several other well-known guests are set to show up, including actors from Harry Potter movie. Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Shirley Henderson (Moaning Myrtle), Luke Youngblood (Lee Jordan) and several cast will perform. Other notable “superfans” to attend include Jay Leno and Saturday Night Liveis Pete Davidson.
During the first two Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses episodes, “Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff” and “Ravenclaw vs. Slytherin,” members of the aforementioned houses will compete for a spot in the grand finale on December 19th. The third section will see the losing teams from the two previous sections collide in a wildcard round to secure a place in the final competition. The winning house will be awarded sumptuous prizes along with their title, including a $ 1000 shopping trip on Harry Potter store in New York, tickets for the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a trip to Harry Potter: The Exhibition tour view, a preview of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and, perhaps most extravagantly, a three-day, three-night trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort.
Viewers at home will be able to take part in an accompanying trivia game, the Wizarding World Quiz Championship, at WizardingWorld.com. Like Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses, players will be able to choose a house to represent and answer Harry Potter trivia questions on a weekly basis, with the winning house announced on December 20th. However, it is unclear whether the entrants will win any kind of prize.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses premieres simultaneously on TBS and Cartoon Network on Sunday 28 November at 20:00 ET. The four-part event will be available on HBO Max in early 2022.
