Pottermore Sneak Peek: See 7 Screens!
''Arriving at Diagon Alley'' is one of the many interactive tableaux representing iconic scenes from the books. You can buy wands, books, owls, and potion supplies in the online version of London's central wizarding market.
As you progress, you'll be assigned to one of Hogwarts' four houses. This is the main screen for the serpentine scalawags who end up assigned to Slytherin.
Peppered throughout Pottermore is additional background information on some favorite characters, locations, and events. Here's the Wiki-esque entry on that old battle-ax Professor McGonagall.
Many of the series' most memorable scenes, like Harry's first trip to Platform 9 3/4, are featured. You can click on various signs and objects to learn more about them.
The main page (in this case for a member of Gryffindor) tracks your progress as you make your way through the interactive book chapters and alerts you to news relating to friends or fellow house members.
Another scene from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, this time in ''The Chessboard Chamber'' as Harry & Co. battle one of the obstacles guarding the titular stone.
It's Christmas at Hogwarts, and while I've always found it strange that a school for witches and wizards wouldn't be nondenominational, you can have fun exploring the celebrations.
