Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Warner Bros.

It looks like J.K. Rowling isn't done writing about Harry Potter, after all.

It was announced on Monday that the famed author who brought the boy wizard to life is penning a new interactive book for Sony's PlayStation 3.

According to a Sony press release, Wonderbook: Book of Spells comes to life as you read it, allowing gamers to cast spells utilizing the console's Playstation Move Motion Controller as a magic wand.

"Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook," said Rowling in a statement. "I've loved working with Sony's creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other."

Book of Spells is presented as an advanced textbook for students of Hogwarts to read, discover, learn and practice familiar spells like Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus.

It is scheduled to be released in Europe in November and December in North America.

Unless, of course, you're able to find it in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library before then.
