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!

Has anyone else noticed that the “sign in” button on Pottermore has disappeared? I’ve registered my account (WombatAvis94) on the second clue day, but the sign in button is gone. Does everyone experience this or is it just me?

The sign in button went yesterday when they went back to the “sign up to be notified when registration for October starts” version of the site.
