Here it is...
Check out our new site. It will explain everything. We will be posting later today about future happenings, the answers to the 7 questions, and more. Enjoy. And from everybody at Pottermore News, Happy New Year!
Anonymous asked: When is going to be openned to everyone and not just to the beta users?
As We Recollect...
”Dear Mr. Potter, You have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry…” One sentence to change millions of lives, to begin a decade… “Harry Potter…the boy who lived…come to die…” One sentence to end -an era -a lifetime …everything. “The stories we love best do live in us forever; whether you come back by page, or...
the-gagasm: I had to go to the hospital. But I’m ok. This is from the girl we reblogged yesterday. She was going to commit suicide, but didn’t. Thank god.
katwaterflame asked: When will Pottermore be opened to everyone? I am getting impatient because all of my friends have gotten in already, and I didn't! ;(
We want your help!
If you already don’t know, we are planning a guide to Pottermore. Our original plan was to release it when the new site launches, but were not sure if we can make the cut. We really need your help and want to know your opinion on this! What would you rather have: a complete guide to Pottermore (equipped with a history of Pottermore, special guides, etc.) later than launch date, or would...
the-gagasm: Thank you so much for your the love you have sent me tonight. It means so much. I’m not sure if I’m going to wake up in the morning. But I just want to say how much the monster family and Mother Monster mean to me. Goodbye. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD NOW. SAVE THIS GIRL!
Chamber of Secrets to be released in April? One...
A writer on a Pottermore cheat page presented an interesting theory (and believable explanation) on the Chamber of Secrets in a post earlier this week. The writer’s theory is purely based on the timing of the release of the chapter art showcases, which currently are posted once a week on the Pottermore Insider. He concludes that since the most recent chapter art highlighted was chapter...

Pottermore Art: Diagon Alley
The Pottermore Insider update today, highlighting illustrations from chapter five, Diagon Alley. This time, the art featured characters and places in the story, some of which include Doris Crockford, Cornelius Fudge, Griphook and Mr. Ollivander to name a few. As you might agree, the art highlighted looks really cool and amazing! Check out all of the illustrations here!
Summing up 2011 with one word: Always.
Remember when Snape said “Always.” and then Lily said “Until the end.” and we was like ooooooo gurl, I am getting so sad up in this theater! We gotta stop this emotion! (#ghettogirllove) Well, that word “Always” defined a generation, and will for generations to come. It seems as though the last 10 years have been such a roller coaster ride, and when we stepped...
Pottermore Insider addresses changes in new update
The Pottermore Insider updated today with a post on their beta updates page. In the post, they address the new changes to Potions and about making Pottermore better. Following the feedback you gave us in the Pottermore Beta survey, we’ve shortened brewing times and tweaked cauldron speeds to make brewing potions even more fun. Looks like taking the survey really paid off! At least we...
Duel Us on Pottermore!
A miracle happened today. Wizard Dueling became available on Pottermore for the first time since August. AUGUST. We waited months and months for this day to happen. We were sick of that stupid notice we got when we reached the dueling page. But, that changed today, and that notice page disappeared. Under the invisibility cloak, perhaps? Now that dueling is up, we are inviting you to duel us! Our...
OFFICIAL: Wizard Duel is CURRENTLY up on...
We just wanted to make a short (BUT HUGE) announcement that Wizard Duel is currently available on Pottermore. This is the first time since the first few weeks of beta that this feature has been available. We have also notice a large increase in house points from all the houses, with points growing by-the-second. Check out pictures of wizard duel live now from our Twitter. We will be updating...
Pottermore Art: The Keeper of Keys
The Pottermore Insider continued their showcase on user art today with illustrations from chapter four, The Keeper of Keys. All of the art highlighted were of Hagrid, as he plays a huge part in chapter four and those that follow. Check out all of the featured art by clicking here. We’ll be posting chapter five’s selection as soon as it is posted.
(UPDATED) Pottermore is now online with...
Pottermore is now online after about a week offline. In the post on the update’s page, they explained that they were working on a number of enhancements during the down time. As told before, users may not notice the changes immediately, as they were focussing on the performance of the site. Though, they did say that users may find changes in the notifications. We have been working on a...
Take the Pottermore's reading survey
Pottermore has released another survey today. In a post on the Pottermore Insider, they explained that they released this survey to help them with the Pottermore Shop that will open soon. The questions were mainly about eBooks, eReaders and Harry Potter. You can take the survey here. We have listed all of the questions below. Besides from the general questions (age, country, etc.), the...

LA Times: Pottermore is stealing Imaginations
In an opinion piece in the LA Times, a writer makes a bold statement; Pottermore is taking away readers’ imaginations. Though backed up with many ideas (that do make sense), I just can’t get the whole gist of it. For someone so famous for inspiring the imaginations of her readers, J.K. Rowling now seems determined to cut them off at the pass. In the introductory video for her new...
NOW: Question Seven
We said that there would soon be seven. And now, there are. We started with one question, and then two, three, four, five and six. Here it is question 7: When will the site launch? This question is so very important, and we don’t have to explain why. It is the ultimate and definitive question. If you have missed the other six, here’s a refresher of all of them: What will it look...
50 Things We Learned From Harry Potter
Total Film has compiled a list of fifty things learned from Harry Potter. It is a fantastic list and includes everything needed, not to mention saying things that definitely needed to be said (Maggie Smith is a secret badass). Not only are the obvious mentioned on the list, but also funny things, things that Potterheads would love and do. Some of the “obvious” include the power of...
Pottermore Going Offline Again
The Pottermore site updates page posted that starting on this Saturday, December 3 at 8:30 am (GMT) the site will be offline. They stated that the site would be offline for at least a week (Dec. 10) to do maintenance work behind-the-scenes. The post didn’t really specify what they were specifically going to do, though it’s not the first time we have seen this message before. Much of...
