A video has come online from the BBC showcasing a few new looks at some of the features and moments set to be a part of Pottermore, J. K. Rowling's new Harry Potter project.  The video, which can be watched right here, gives us a glimpse at some of the sorting procedures users may go through to obtain a wand, a Privet Drive moment, and a quick shot of what appears to be more backstory for the Dursleys.  The report also features comments from Ms. Rowling from the day of Pottermore's reveal on her decision to make Pottermore an online experience and the inclusion of e-books.


Many thanks to SS for the video!

I don’t mind waiting at all, since now there’s at least some hope for this fall, lol.

Wow this looks amazing!! I really can’t wait. I’m glad JK Rowling is opening up to the digital age. Sad to hear that there will be definately no more books about Harry Potter. Does this mean the enyclopedia is a no no?

Letters are being sent out now. They say you have been selected for early access, though there is no specific information on when you can access the site. There is some suggestion that day 1 registrations are getting their letters first, presumably followed by day 2, day 3 etc. probably later in the evening.

I’m getting nervous, I don’t have the second mail yet, so hopefully it doesn’t get lost somewhere on the way

Argh!!!!!! Just got my Congratulations letter, not to be confused with Welcome letter, which I of course did, and spent a good 5 wasted minutes jumping around and screaming, thinking I could start using Pottermore, only to actually read the message and realize I was not done waiting… It says they’re activating between mid-August and end of September… End of September is basically October… not much of an early access. I was day 1 so hopefully I won’t have to wait quite so long. LOVE Jo for giving me something else to be excited for though! Isn’t waiting for HP things fun?!!
