Today, Pottermore announced news relating to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. They announced that they will be revealing the ‘first chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets very soon on Pottermore’.
From the Insider post:
We’re excited to announce that the first chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets are coming very soon to Pottermore.
We will reveal more about this next week here on the Pottermore Insider, as well as the Pottermore Gateway and the new Pottermore house noticeboards.
This is the first official announcement about the release of the second book. It seems as no surprise, as they have been updating fans on their progress in developing the book project for a number of weeks. The surprise was that they announced all of this before the Pottermore House Cup winner was declared. This also goes against their original plan. A few weeks ago they sent out an E-mail regarding the House Cup, and said that there would be an update on Chamber of Secrets after the House Cup winner was announced.
We will be constantly updating you with the latest news on Chamber of Secrets updates on this site and especially on our Twitter, @PottermoreNews7. Be sure to follow both of them in the coming weeks!
