From the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opening in London next year — the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is about to be back in full force!
And to prepare us, J.K. Rowling has posted a story about the history of the Potter family on the website Pottermore.com!
We can expect to learn not only more about the Potter family name, but key facts about the family fortune — and finally find out about where the Invisibility Cloak came from!
The site said in a statement:
“The new writing from J.K. Rowling sheds unexpected new light on the origins of the Potter family name, delves into Harry’s ancestry, explains how his grandfather quadrupled the family’s fortune and how the Invisibility Cloak became a family heirloom.”
In addition to divulging brand new info about Harry’s kin, Pottermore also unveiled a re-launch of the site that is aimed to be the “digital heart” of Rowling’s Potterverse!
“Pottermore.com now includes more content than ever before and is designed to be consumed in a completely different way to the original site, which was launched in 2012. The new site contains entertaining features, commentary and articles about the Harry Potter series and the wider Wizarding World.”
The site will now provide a go-to “Pottermore Correspondent,” a journalist dedicated to keeping us up-to-date on all the latest Wizarding World entertainment!
At this rate, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will make Westeros look like a small suburb! LOLz!
Are YOU excited for your Potterverse to expand?
