Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses will see Helen Mirren host a four-part trivia quiz show, pitting Harry Potter fans against one another as they test their knowledge for the House Cup championship.

“We’re marking the occasion by adding every film in the Wizarding World film series to our cinema line-up this festive season and we’re thrilled to be the exclusive home of the next piece of Hogwarts history.”
