On the 21st of July 2007 the last Harry Potter book was released and the eighth film premiered on the 15th of July 2011. The well-known British author J.K.Rowling is aware of the extent following that her books have all round the world. Because of this, to thank everyone, she created the virtual world of Pottermore, a world in which you are the leading role.
The experience was at first just for a select group of people of the first people who signed up. Through comments from these users, J.K.Rowling and her technical team conducted a series of improvements. Late 2011/early 2012, Pottermore finally opened it’s virtual doors to everyone who wants to take part of this unique experience. Also, becoming a Pottermore user is completely free.
With this new project, J.K.Rowling has also made e-books of the Harry Potter phenomenon available for the first time since it was first published. Through the web page you can access the Pottermore Shop where you can find all the books in several different languages from all around the world.
On Pottermore you will be able to explore the different chapters and discover where the inspiration from the stories came, the characters and places where the scenes from Harry Potter take place. In each moment of the experience you will find yourself in the scene and you will be able to click on the objects around the room to discover extra information.
In some ways Pottermore is a social network, because there is portals in which you can interact with others users. At different parts in the story you answer some quizzes to see which wand you are most compatible with your personality and to see in which of the four Houses you belong, once you get to Hogwarts. Just like in the books, by winning duels and making the perfect potion, as well as finding hidden objects, you will win points to help your House win the House Cup.
