We know that many of you have been looking forward to exploring the concluding chapters of the third book in the series – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – on Pottermore.com, and we are delighted to tell you that the finishing touches are being applied, and the chapters will be ready for you to explore in the coming weeks.
If you’re curious about the Moments to come, you’ll find a glimpse of one of them below. What do you think this black and white sketch depicts? You can discuss your thoughts in the Great Hall or common room on Pottermore.com, or let us know your theories on our Facebook page if you have an account, or via Twitter with the hashtag #PrisonerOfAzkaban.
As we get closer to the release date of the Harry Potter 15th Anniversary collection, we get to see each cover revealed to us. The latest one revealed is the third book in the series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban!
For those of us who have been waiting ages for more Pottermore updates, we finally have more chapters to explore.
We are excited to announce that the next instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is now ready to explore. In this instalment you will witness a re-enactment of the beheading of Nearly Headless Nick, learn about the ancient wizarding game of Gobstones, pick up sweets in Honeydukes and see the ‘most haunted dwelling in Britain’ – the Shrieking Shack.
For the first time, some of the new Moments have been released with accompanying audio book snippets for our UK, US and German users. We have also introduced a new spoiler alert feature on selected exclusive entries from J.K. Rowling. If you are about to read anything that may give away storylines or information from beyond that particular Moment on Pottermore.com, an alert will appear. You then have the choice to continue reading or to navigate away and come back at a later time so as not to spoil your own journey through the stories. You can disable the spoiler warning any time it appears and manage your spoiler settings in Account Settings.
For those of you who took part in our Teaser Questions, we are keeping the answers a secret for a few more days. We wanted to give you time to explore the new Moments and look or listen out for the answers yourselves. Share your discoveries on our Facebook page if you have an account; or on Twitter using the hashtag#pmteasers.
