Interactive Harry Potter site Pottermore has announced some major changes to the website in a message to members.
Soon, Pottermore as you know it will transform into a new and reimagined website, giving you the opportunity to discover even more about J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
Part one of Pottermore’s story, in which you have enjoyed the depiction of Harry’s story through illustrated ‘Moment’ artwork and experienced life within Hogwarts, is ending. We are now preparing for part two of Pottermore’s story to begin. As J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World expands, so too will Pottermore, becoming a place to imagine more and share in a world beyond the seven book series.
As a memento of your Pottermore journey so far we’ve created a personalised, printable certificate, which is available for you to print until 1:00pm (British Summer Time) on 16 September. Thank you for your dedication and for sharing the Pottermore experience with us so far. We hope you like what’s next…
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne talked briefly about his upcoming performance as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
“Like many people, I read those books, I watched those films, and became completely intoxicated by J.K. Rowling’s world,” said the British actor and Oscar-winner. “The idea of getting to tiptoe into it felt truly exciting. I hope it’s going to be quite a ride.”
While Redmayne was happy to discuss his excitement about the project he declined to elaborate further about the film itself, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on Nov. 18, 2016. “I’m allowed to say absolutely nothing!” he explained.
