Today Pottermore released the concluding installment of the fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The much-awaited new chapters come six months after the previous release. Members of Ravenclaw House received 24 hours early access to the new chapters yesterday, and the chapters are available to all houses from today.
In this new installment, users encounter Hagrid’s Blast Ended Skrewts, attend the Yule Ball, explore Hogwart’s Great Lake and much, much more. Even Voldemort makes his comeback this time around.
As always, J.K. Rowling joined in as well, contributing four new exclusive content entries, including ones on the Great Lake of Hogwarts and Illness and Disability in the wizarding world.
While exploring the new chapters, look out for:
- The Blast Ended Skrewts. You’re going to need damage control after exploring that Moment.
- The Yule Ball! (for reasons that are obvious)
- The faucets/taps in the Prefect’s bathroom. They are fun to play around with, even though you can’t enjoy them yourself. *sad Dobby eyes*
- The sound in the Merepeople Moment (chapter 26). Freakishly eery.
- J.K. Rowling’s entry on the Great Lake — she reveals early drafts of the books where the Great Lake planned to make an appearance.
- J.K. Rowling’s thoughts on Owls. Very cool!
- The history of the Pensieve — J.K. Rowling shares interesting backstory on the device in chapter 30.
- The Maze in chapter 31. Make sure you clicked through everything; it’s pretty cool.
- The Golden Thread Moment, chapter 34. Voldemort’s first full-fledged appearance on Pottermore is a memorable one.
- “Illness and Disability,” an entry from J.K. Rowling that’s worth a read.
- The audio in “The Leaving Feast.” Stephen Fry’s oration of one of Dumbledore’s most powerful speeches is chilling.
- Neville’s grandmother in the King’s Cross Moment. Good one, Pottermore team.
Happy exploring to everyone! 🙂
Also, as it is July 31, we want to wish a Happy Birthday to J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter!
