Pottermore, the website for everything you need to know about Hogwarts, decided it was time for a change so they made an extensive redesign with new features including stories and articles about the Harry Potter world, according to Los Angeles Times.
J.K. Rowling posts on Pottermore a message introducing the new and much improved website describing the website as ?a place where you can explore my writing both familiar and new, and where you can read features, articles, and news from the Pottermore team.?
?New information will be revealed about the characters, places, and magic you?re familiar with, as well as introductions to a few new characters, places and notions,? Rowling explains. ?If you need a little extra magic in your life, you?ve come to the right place.?
Harry Potter family background
A new addition to the Pottermore website is Rowling?s story on the history of the Potter?s, tracing Harry Potter?s family and ancestors further in the 12th century to wizard Linfred or Stinchcombe, ?a locally well-beloved and eccentric man, whose nickname, ?the Potterer,? became corrupted in time to ?Potter,?? Los Angeles Times shares.
?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,? the site explains in a statement.
The website also include, for the first time, reports and features from the Pottermore Correspondent, ?a journalist dedicated to reporting on all the latest updates going on in the Wizarding World,? the site says in a statement. Some if the reports that the Pottermore Correspondent will reveal is the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film ?Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them,? based on a J.K. Rowling original screen play and the stage play ?Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,? which is set to premier in London, 2016.
