Pottermore, J. K. Rowling’s online Harry Potter experience, is now open to all wishing to join in on the experience. The change was made early this morning in the UK and is indicated on the official website with the question “Are you magical?” Users may sign up now, while actual invitations should start arriving– care of owls, surely– over the next few days. The Pottermore Insider blog reads:
Get ready to begin your Pottermore journey, because Pottermore.com is now opening to everyone.
Over the coming days, we’ll be inviting new users onto Pottermore.com. We’re expecting to be really busy to start with and plan to activate new registrations in a steady stream. This means that you may not get access to Pottermore immediately after you sign up but we will get you exploring the site as quickly possible.
After you’ve signed up, you’ll get sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses, have a wand choose you, and discover exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling.
We’ll be adding lots of exciting new features over the coming weeks and months, so make sure you return regularly to explore and discover all the changes as Pottermore grows.
The news comes on the heels of a pretty busy week in Harry Potter, with the announcement of author J. K. Rowling’s next book project, The Casual Vacancy, and the launch of her revamped official website right here.
