So, here we are. The Wizarding World has expanded and, as such, Pottermore.com has a new, bigger home for all of the magic you love. From the team that brought you Pottermore, along with some new friends too, WizardingWorld.com is the new online home of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.
It’s like a more polished, shiny version of The Burrow... we’ve magically added a few extra floors to our house and thrown in some Extension Charms, brought over the content you know and love from Pottermore.com, and added some new, enhanced experiences. What’s more, everyone – no matter their age – can come and have a look around.
Here you can delve deeper into J.K. Rowling’s stories with articles on wizarding world themes, from a broad range of authors offering their thoughts; test your knowledge with a range of quizzes; enjoy exclusive new videos, and get up to speed with the latest Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts news.
We’re still moving in and unpacking a few boxes – so there are more surprises to be unveiled soon. No rogue Doxys to be found anywhere, we hope.
And as we built a new home, we’ve also built...
Take a seat – a three-legged stool would be perfect – and discover where you truly belong with a reimagining of the Sorting Hat Ceremony.
Please do not worry. We’re not going to prise your beloved Hogwarts houses away from you! We’re offering a fresh way to get sorted with a beautiful new design, featuring J.K. Rowling’s original questions from Pottermore.com.
Give it a go and share your #HousePride. If you’re on Instagram, you can get an exclusive Instagram frame themed around whichever Hogwarts house calls to you.
Find the reimagined Sorting Hat Ceremony right here. If our Wizarding World app has already launched in your country, you can try out a more interactive version on mobile – which includes a few extra treats along the way as you answer those all-important questions.
And while we’re talking about the app…
We recently launched our new Wizarding World app in the UK, US and Ireland – along with previous countries Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The app (which is free, so no pennies required) holds many surprises, such as secret code unlocks and the new fanzine we’re calling Wizarding Weekly. We hope you like it – watch out for the app rolling out in more countries soon.
Always. But bear with us: more will be revealed soon enough. For now, have a look around, and make sure to grab a biscuit on your way out. We hope you like what we’ve done with the place.
