We don’t usually report on sports here at /Film, but for Quidditch we’ll make an exception. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has posted the first part of her History of the Quidditch World Cup on Pottermore.com, her interactive website for Potterheads.
While Rowling has put up several pieces of original content on the site, the 2,400-word essay is one of her longest yet. The post lays out the background and rules of the tournament, and recounts some particularly controversial matches including 1877′s The Tournament That Nobody Remembers. Learn more about Rowling’s newest work, including when we’ll get to read Part 2, after the jump.

In an interview with Emma Watson, who played Hermione in the movies, Rowling confessed that she regretted having Hermione end up with Ron and that she should have put her with Harry instead. Read her comments after the jump.

In 2010, Universal Studios Florida opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, an expansion of their already successful theme park, and it quickly became one of the most trafficked attractions in the world. Huge crowds have filled the area ever since and Universal quickly realized they wanted to expand.
That expansion, modeled after the Potter area Diagon Alley, is set to open over this Summer and earlier this week, they announced a bunch of specific details about it. The most exciting one is the name of the area’s signature thrill ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, as well as huge list of stores that will be in the area including The Leaky Cauldron, Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions, Magical Menagerie, Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Knockturn Alley, and Borgin and Burkes just to name a few. And there will also be a Hogwarts Express riding around.
