“We’ve seen many interpretations of Hogwarts – from the artwork in the illustrated editions of the books to the eight feature films from Warner Bros,” Pottermore’s global digital director Henriette Stuart-Reckling said. “This new feature on our website marks the first time fans will have the opportunity to explore the famous wizarding school any time, any place and at their own pace.”

For fans of Rowling’s novels, this new game has arrived on an auspicious day. In the final book of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, September 1, 2017 is the date that Harry’s son Albus climbed aboard the Hogwarts Express for his first day at school.
