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

But Niantic may be mindful that many of Pokemon Go's remaining fans play it with its AR features switched off because it makes the game easier to play and helps save battery life. Players will explore neighborhoods and cities, learning and casting spells, finding magical artifacts, and encounter beasts and characters from the Harry Potter universe.

The tech giant is probably hoping the game will be as popular as Pokemon GoWhat will Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite be about?

"Niantic Labs had tremendous success with Pokémon Go, which paired their expertise in building location-based augmented reality mobile experiences with a top-flight IP with a ravenous fan base", TechCrunch wrote. Then, beginning on January 2, HBO will air one film each night starting with the O.G. flick, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and ending with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
