"Harry Potter" author JK Rowling has finally revealed the idea behind her Pottermore website, which is described as an online experience based on the "Harry Potter" world. Watch the video below to see the announcement.
The Pottermore site and the shop will be open to all users in October. From today, fans can submit their email addresses in order to be contacted by the site following the opening of registration on July 31st, Harry's birthday.
Also on that date, an online challenge will be launched, whereby the first million people to complete their registration will gain early entry into the website, and help put final touches to the experience.
"I wanted to give something back to the fans that have followed Harry so devotedly over the years, and to bring the stories to a new digital generation," said Rowling. "I hope fans and those new to Harry will have as much fun helping to shape Pottermore as I have. Just as I have contributed to the website, everyone else will be able to join in by submitting their own comments, drawings and other content in a safe and friendly environment – Pottermore has been designed as a place to share the stories with your friends as you journey through the site."
@minkowski everyone was sure on the idea that it would be a harry potter themed, world of warcraft type game. however she just announce that she would sell her books electronically, which we knew was coming eventually. big let down.
