Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s new site Pottermore is expected to go live in October. While the site is currently on lock down, the Pottermore Twitter account recently tweeted a few photos of what fans can expect to see inside reading-wise when the site does open up later this year (we already saw some photos of the gaming interface with the site’s original announcement).
In Rowling’s original announcement for the site we learned that Pottermore will be an interactive experience. “In the new website, the storyline will be brought to life with sumptuous newly-commissioned illustrations and interactive ‘Moments’ through which you can navigate, starting with the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone. On entering, you choose a magic username and begin your experience. As you move through the chapters, you can read and share exclusive writing from J.K. Rowling, and, just as Harry joins Hogwarts, so can you. You visit Diagon Alley, get sorted into a house, cast spells and mix potions to help your house compete for the House Cup.”
