J.K. Rowling Adds New Content to Pottermore Site

pottermore.comPottermore.com, the digital platform dedicated to Harry Potter, has a new series of ‘live’ reports from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup. J.K. Rowling penned the news reports from the fictional sporting event, which is set in the Patagonian desert.

The reports have been published as headlines from the Daily Prophet’s Quidditch Correspondentin the Patagonian desert, a fictional character named Ginny Potter.  Rowling quotes Rolf Scamander, the magical creatures expert, in the piece.

Here is more from the press release: “The posts begin with a report on the opening ceremony of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup. With characteristic humour, Rowling describes how the international teams’ mascots, magical creatures from the world of Harry Potter, took part in the ceremony and caused havoc for their handlers. We find out why more than 300 crowd members are suffering from shock, broken bones and bites following the ceremony, and why failure to bring their usual mascots, a troupe of performing trolls, caused a great deal of trouble for the Norwegian delegation.  A ‘live’ match report details the thrilling action between Norway and Ivory Coast in the first match of the tournament.”
