You’ve read the books. You’ve seen all the movies. And still you want more – Harry Potter that is! Answering the demands of fans all over the world HP author J.K. Rowling has created Pottermore, an interactive website for all things Harry Potter. Find out more about Pottermore!
Wizardry on the Web
No one can deny that the world of Harry Potter is a “magical” place to be – so magical that many fans of the books and movies were left asking “what comes next” once the series ended. The books started coming out thirteen years ago, many fans feel as if they’ve grown up with Harry, Hermione, Ron and the whole wizarding world, and by the series end the author was still flooded with emails and letters asking detailed questions about their fave characters.
How Does it Work – Magic?
Pottermore is J.K. Rowling’s answer to fans who want more of the world of Harry Potter – whether it’s finding out more details about the characters, exploring the places so vividly described in the books (like Hogwarts!) or simply interacting with fans across the world! It’s a meeting place for muggles who long to learn more about Harry and his friends! Starting with the first novel the site lets you can re enact scenes and relive parts of the book as if you were truly there, almost as if Rowling had written you in herself. You can have a wizard’s duel with other users, go through the same wizarding tests as the characters (like making potions) and explore Hogwarts School, Platform 9 &3/4 or Privet Drive!
Can Any Muggle Join?
The short answer is yes. Pottermore allows you to create your own profile so you can access everything it has to offer and meet other fans. It doesn’t matter what language you speak, Pottermore speaks them all, offering the site in several different international languages. The site will also offer fans the chance to buy the series as e-books, audio books and other media and HP swag (like mugs, books, and scarves).
Pottermore has opened its digital doors this year, check out the Pottermore vid below.
