Emily In Paris is embarrassing in a lot of ways the “American” version of Hogwarts is

Do you ever watch something and think to yourself that no one knows what they’re talking about? That’s Emily In Paris and, sadly, Ilvermorny in the Fantastic Beasts series.

Emily In Paris is the kind of show that anyone who took French in high school or who does social media watches and instantly knows that the person who wrote it doesn’t know that much about the surrounding culture. Sadly, the same idea happened in the Harry Potter series where Ilvermorny is concerned.

The American equivalent to Hogwarts was met with a mixed reaction mainly because the houses were not really something we cared about and the idea that we wouldn’t get to go to Hogwarts ourselves never really crossed our minds.

And maybe a major part of it is that we all just know and love Hogwarts but from what we do know of Ilvermorny, it’s not really like any American school that seems popular or around. Sure, Hogwarts has its mystery and its magic, but it DOES seem like a boarding school in England to some degree.

Ilvermorny feels very similar in style which isn’t how American schools work. So, like Emily In Paris, it feels like those behind the creation of the school just didn’t know the source and how to go off of just simply setting it in America.

If there was a way that America’s wizarding school was different, then sure that’d be fun, but our boarding schools are rare and not as upstanding (in my opinion) as those in Britain so it just doesn’t work as well.
