Step aside Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, it looks like the Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie is bringing us four new school houses.

In the movie we’ll spent a lot of time in the America equivalent to Hogwarts, called Ilvermorny, and it looks like someone has discovered the names of the four houses within.

It seems that Federico Ian Cervantez may have stumbled upon the info hidden in the javascript of a new quiz being constructed for the Harry Potter site.

In the quiz you will be asked “Where do you belong?”.

And the answers? Well how about Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, and Pukwudgie?

Further into the quiz it seems the houses – or rather the creatures that they are named after – are described as:

Horned Serpent: Dragon-like serpents with horns and long teeth. They are often associated with or said to control the weather, particularly rain, lightning, and thunder. Magical abilities ascribed to them include shape-shifting, invisibility and hypnotic powers.”

The Wampus: A cat-like creature – some kind of fearsome variation of a cougar.

The Thunderbird: a “legendary creature often described as a very large bird, capable of generating storms and thunder as it flies.

Pukwudgie: Two-to-three feet tall and human-shaped but with a larger nose, ears and fingers and smooth, grey skin that sometimes glows. Its magical abilities include disappearing and reappearing, partial or complete transformation into a porcupine or cougar, and creating fire.

So, what do you think Potter fans? Could these someday replace the Hogwart houses in your hearts?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
