J.K. Rowling to launch new website: Pottermore
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling sent fans into a tizzy when she said that she had “something new to announce.” Although she said it wasn’t a new book, Rowling did assure us that it was equally exciting and fans quickly took off on a scavenger hunt to find clues as to what the news could be. The game revealed the name of a new website: Pottermore.
While Pottermore isn’t operational yet and currently boasts a few owls and Rowling’s signature, fans have been speculating about what will be featured on the new magical and mysterious site. Little information exists but Leaky Cauldron did get a sneak peek at Pottermore and summed it up in one word: “Breathtaking.”
Some fans speculate that Pottermore will feature online games, a Harry Potter encyclopedia, chat rooms, Harry Potter merchandise, film clips, books, literacy programs and much more but there has been no official confirmation.
“It is not another Harry Potter book but we cannot reveal any more at this stage, fans will have to keep an eye on the website. It will be launching soon,” a spokesperson from Rowling’s PR company Stonehill Salt said.
Stay tuned for more info! And don’t miss the countdown clock (currently at six days) on YouTube where the Harry Potter author will officially make an announcement.
