Hogwarts Legacy Cinematic Trailer Follows an Owl’s Journey

Hogwarts Legacy Owl

The upcoming Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy drops a new official cinematic trailer that follows an owl’s dangerous journey on a letter delivery.

It’s important to remember the ongoing controversial statements by the creator of the Harry Potter franchise. CBR supports the hard work of industry professionals on properties fans know and love, and the wider world of Harry Potter that fans have adopted as their own. You can find CBR’s continuing coverage on J.K. Rowling here.

Hogwarts Legacy drops an official cinematic trailer of one owl’s treacherous letter delivery.

The one-minute clip gives viewers a literal birds-eye view of Hogwarts and its surrounding areas, including the Forbidden Forest. The owl barely avoids many dangers, from spiders, a dragon’s fiery breath and a mysterious masked wizard’s Avada Kedavra spell. As seen in the trailer, Harry Potter fans recognize Nearly Headless Nick and notice a professor with the familiar last name Weasley. After surviving the various threats of the Wizarding World, the owl delivers a Hogwarts acceptance letter to a prospective student.

Hogwarts Legacy Sees Major Sales and Controversy Pre-Release

Weeks before its release date, Hogwarts Legacy climbed the top of the best-selling charts for Steam and PlayStation 5. On Steam, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive remains higher in revenue as a free-to-play title with microtransactions. As for Amazon’s bestsellers, Hogwarts Legacy bested Sonic Frontiers and the upcoming Dead Space remake for the top spot. For Xbox Series X|S, Hogwarts Legacy comes second only to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

Several users on Steam flooded Hogwarts Legacy‘s pre-sale page with inflammatory tags like “villain protagonist,” “World War II,” and “capitalism.” “Transphobia” is the game’s top tag, with others being “racism,” “psychological horror,” and “antisemitism.” The tags and the demands to boycott Hogwarts Legacy stem from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s problematic statements against the transgender community. However, Warner Bros. Games confirmed that Rowling had no input in Hogwarts Legacy, which allows players to create transgender students.
