A video has come online from the BBC showcasing a few new looks at some of the features and moments set to be a part of Pottermore, J. K. Rowling's new Harry Potter project.  The video, which can be watched right here, gives us a glimpse at some of the sorting procedures users may go through to obtain a wand, a Privet Drive moment, and a quick shot of what appears to be more backstory for the Dursleys.  The report also features comments from Ms. Rowling from the day of Pottermore's reveal on her decision to make Pottermore an online experience and the inclusion of e-books.


Many thanks to SS for the video!

Heh, it’s kind of like waiting for our Hogwarts letters. :) I don’t mind the wait.

Kingsleyisawesome, if you managed to get an early account on Pottermore, then you will receive a welcome letter sometime this month. None of us know when the letters will arrive, but we do know that they will be staggered so that the 1 million new accounts are activated gradually. That’s what we’re all excited about; we won’t get to do any of this stuff until the letter arrives in our inbox.

The wand selection looks like so much fun! I wonder how many questions there are for it.

Yes! I can’t wait for Pottermore! It seems really interesting and I love to see all the stuff Jo has hidden from Muggles for over a decade now! (Technically two decades)!

I got in the first day (FeatherPixie80), and I liked looking at the page that said congratulations. I’m sorry that the sign in button is gone, but maybe that means that we’ll start getting our welcome e-owls sooner rather than later. I hope.

Guess That Book

"Mom?" he whispered. "Dad?" They just looked at him, smiling. And slowly, Harry looked into the faces of the other people in the mirror, and saw other pairs of green eyes like his, other noses like his, even a little old man who looked as though he had Ha
