WarnerMedia Kids & Family will celebrate the 20th anniversary later this year of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone film with two new unscripted Wizarding World specials — a limited Harry Potter fan quiz competition series and a dedicated retrospective special — to premiere on HBO Max, Cartoon Network and TBS in the United States.

The unscripted game show and retrospective will help to find some of the biggest self-proclaimed fans to celebrate and test their Wizarding World knowledge. Produced by Warner Bros.
