HPANA is a fan site for all of J.K. Rowling's creations, from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series to Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks and everything in between.

We have the great distinction of being the very first Harry Potter fan site Rowling ever visited online, and our team strives to live up to that honor every day by providing accurate, timely news & information on everything in this expansive creative universe.


This is YOUR community, your passion, your daily escape to a delightfully alternate reality. Maybe you were just a kid when the first Harry Potter books came out. Perhaps you were late to the party but quickly saw how wonderfully welcoming this community of fans are and easily joined in on the fun.

You'll be helping keep the site alive and growing, while receiving perks and good karma along the way! You'll also have access to exclusive content here on Patreon. What you get depends on your level of involvement.

Each tier adds on to the previous one, so you get accumulative benefits:

  • $1/month: your name is added to the Hall of Fame, you gain access to a special forum on the site (for fellow patrons only), an early look into what's going on behind the scenes, a roundup of our best content each week, and access to patron-only polls (so you can influence the direction of the site).
  • $5/month: you also get access to an ad-free experience on HPANA, unique patron-only content, and a higher position in the Hall of Fame
  • $10/month: you also gain access to a full-text RSS feed of HPANA's news (for personal use), a higher position in the Hall of Fame, and exclusive early access to new features on the site before anyone else!
  • $25/month: you get everything above and also an even higher position in the Hall of Fame!
  • $50/month: you are incredible and get all of the benefits above and you get a custom title for your member profile (even if you don't have the points yet).
  • $100/month: you are simply amazing and you get all the benefits above, the highest recognition in the Hall of Fame, and a distinctive frame around your profile picture everywhere you're seen on HPANA.


Our rewards range from $1 to $100 a month, and any amount of support in between helps us keep the site running and producing the content you want. We're happy to have you as patrons at whatever level you can afford, and work hard to offer great benefits for all of our supporters.

And if you can't give, that's okay too! We appreciate all the tweets (follow us at https://twitter.com/HPANA), all the shares & likes (https://facebook.com/theHPANA), all the news tips ([email protected]) and all the love we get elsewhere.


Not only does HPANA publish comprehensive news and analysis about everything in the Rowling universe, but we are also an amazing community of fans who have come to call HPANA home, and have filled our forums with an astounding array of discussions & original fan fiction and fan art.

For over a decade, the Harry Potter Automatic News Aggregator has scoured the internet with our proprietary technology to ensure you get the best information as soon as it's available. We have a team of News Editors who are committed to providing up-to-date, exciting and accurate information to the fandom. (Rumors are sometimes covered and always marked as such.) Our extensive news archive going back to 2003 contains 15,000 articles freely available for browsing.

There has been a tremendous shift in the digital landscape since HPANA's founding in 2002. Today, we use social media like Facebook and Twitter to make it easier for fans to follow what's happening, and that requires dedicated staff, time and effort. (The most in-depth and heartfelt discussions still tend to take place on HPANA's web site.)

We have also expanded our news coverage to follow the projects and press from our favorite actors, actresses, directors, and others after they have departed J.K. Rowling's world.
