A guide to the wands in the new Wizarding World logo


Lord Voldemort’s wand was significant for being the ‘brother’ of Harry’s wand – containing a feather from the same phoenix that provided a core for Harry’s. This phoenix was Fawkes, Albus Dumbledore’s trusted companion.

Ron Weasley

Ron didn’t have much luck with wands – and initially went to Hogwarts using a hand-me-down from his brother Charlie. When the Whomping Willow destroyed this one, Ron finally got his own, made of willow and containing a unicorn hair.

Hermione Granger

Hermione’s wand was made from vine wood with a dragon heartstring core. According to wandmaker Garrick Ollivander, a vine wood wand is a less common type, and tends to go to owners who ‘have a vision beyond the ordinary’.

Harry Potter

Harry’s wand (described as ‘nice and supple’ by Mr Ollivander) was defined by its connection to Lord Voldemort, due to their shared wand core. As such, Voldemort struggled to use his wand to vanquish Harry, and had to seek another of greater power.

Albus Dumbledore

Albus Dumbledore secured the Elder Wand, also known as the ‘Deathstick’, during his duel against Gellert Grindelwald in 1945. The Elder Wand is one of the three Deathly Hallows, and is known as the most powerful wand in the wizarding world.

Newt Scamander

Newt’s wand is quite worn down, covered in dents and bangs, which certainly shows off his hectic lifestyle as a Magizoologist.

Porpentina Goldstein

Tina’s wand is a sleek and simple design, which matches her smart, practical and no-nonsense attitude.

Queenie Goldstein

Queenie’s wand is designed with an Art Deco feel, which reflects a 1920s style and Queenie’s taste in fashion.

Young Grindelwald

Before obtaining the Elder Wand, Grindelwald used another. He would later become obsessed with the Deathly Hallows, and steal the Elder Wand from the wandmaker Gregorovitch.
