The owls are gathering: Pottermore to open for everyone in April 2012

The Pottermore Insider updated with some exciting news to all Harry Potter fans – specifically those who didn’t earn early access into Pottermore.


In the post, they explained why they extended the beta and the original opening date in October.

We always knew Pottermore would be incredibly popular, which is why we made the decision to only open to one million Beta users to begin with. We wanted to make sure that we had a really good understanding of how people want to use the site and which bits we’d need to modify before giving more people access.

We gathered some incredibly useful feedback from our Beta users, and it became clear that our original platform wouldn’t be suitable when millions more users came on to the site. So we made a big decision: to move Pottermore to an entirely different platform set up. This ‘invisible’ change has involved a lot of work behind the scenes but it will enable our users to get the best from Pottermore as it grows and develops.

Along with the ‘invisible’ changes, Pottermore will be adding some more visible modifications. These changes include adding new exclusive content from J.K. Rowling and more exciting features such as sounds, which has been a major complaint/suggestion from fans. These new features will be added to the site over the coming weeks and months.

For all of you patient fans, it won’t belong until you begin your Pottermore journey. It’s one you will never forget.

We are in the process of writing some more editorials and opinion pieces on this
