Here at Accio Wizards Unite we are, above all, two geeky fans who love Harry Potter. And we’ve always enjoyed the community that surrounded this magical world from day one. Now, many years later, we decided to take a more active part in the community centred on Wizards Unite.
And as we set off, we met these wonderful creatures Newt definitely should have included in Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. The WuTubers.
So here is our feature section, bringing you the best content and the best content creators in the wizarding world..
The Spectacular Squibbler
If you’ve been around youtube and twitter looking for some Wizards Unite content, you’ve definitely come across The Squibbler. And he doesn’t just cover Wizards Unite content, but also Hogwarts Mystery and Pokémon Go.
So here’s our chance to get to know him a little better.
Getting to know The Squibbler
- Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Tejas, I’m 22 (turning 23 in August), and I live in Singapore (for now) – It seems since the time this interview was done he’s skipped all the way to India!
- Why did you choose your channel name and social media handle?
The Squibbler would be a combination of 2 words in the wizarding world. Squib and Quibbler. We’re all essentially Squibs if you think about it (we can see the magic but can’t perform it ourselves) and The Quibbler was an eccentric magazine which is what I want to convey through my videos in the sense that there’ll be an element of fun in my videos but I’ll also be providing the right info when it matters (similar to how The Quibbler is the only one who published Harry’s true accounts of what happens in the graveyard).
- What’s your Hogwarts House? What do you think it says about you?
Gryffindor. ‘Nuff said.
The Harry Potter Community
- How and around what age did you get into Harry Potter?
Probably when I was about 5 years old and the first HP movie came out. Got hooked by the magic and wonders of the franchise. Eventually I read the books when DH released in 2007.
- What do you like most about the Potterverse?
- What do you think about the Harry Potter fan community? Do you think it’s different from other Fandoms?
Definitely different, everyone usually has pretty standard opinions and isn’t divided. And we’re mostly accepting of most fanfics and theories and support each other’s OTPs. JKR has made an entire generation believe in the role models through her characters.
The Life of a WuTuber
- Being a WUtuber is a lot of work. What made you decide to start your channel? And why Wizards Unite?
I love Pokemon Go and the AR aspect of it. To have to go out in the real world to play a mobile game, is an amazing concept. When you combine that love of AR gaming with Harry Potter, covering Wizards Unite became almost necessary. Also Trainer Tips was a huge inspiration, he’s awesome.
- What would you like people to know about your channel? What makes it special?
I will be honest. It will be family-friendly content. I will provide the most up-to-date info as much as I can. Along with gameplay and tips, I’d love to incorporate my passion for filmmaking into my videos by creating artistic and visually appealing content so that my videos educate and entertain at the same time.
- What are you looking forward to the most about Wizards Unite?
I’m looking forward to being on the ground floor of something which has the potential to do so much good in the world. I love Niantic’s mission of getting people out of their comfort zone, exploring the world around them, and make new friends along the way. If Wizards Unite does even 1/50th of what Pokemon Go has done in terms of uniting a gaming community, I’m hopeful that I can be one of the driving forces.
- What are your plans for the channel once the game is out?
- Anything else you’d like to share?
Accio WU is awesome 😉
Some fantastic Wizards Unite Videos
- Share some of your favourite videos and some words about why you chose them.
My channel trailer. It’s the best video I have to date and the one I had the most fun editing. There are other videos too which I loved creating but I’ll be modest and just post 1 link 😛

- @WizardWayKris: Tejas is a classic Gryffindor: risk-taking, focused, & passionate about his content creation. I’ve known him since the beginning of Hogwarts Mystery, and he really excels at giving a ton of info in a short period of time! Informative but with an AMAZING eye for cinematography!
It’s no wonder he’s off to study film in India! This guy has an amazing future ahead of him, and I can’t wait to see what projects he takes on in the future! Go, go, Gryffindor!
So now what?
Well, here’s what you can, and should, do now.
The first is quite obvious, go and follow The Squibbler on all platforms.
Then, most importantly, jump over to his youtube channel and check out his videos. Although he only shared his (amazing!!) Wizards Unite trailer in the post, there are a ton of Wizards Unite videos over there for you to enjoy. Gameplay, tips, tricks, it’s all right there waiting for you!
