For those unfamiliar, Pottermore is the online world that J.K. Rowling createdso that fans could interact even further with the world from the books.
“The Pottermore Presents series will launch in September and is intended to supplement the Harry Potter book series with short-form content that is entertaining, creatively curated by the Pottermore staff and accessed easily on mobile platforms,” a spokesperson told The Bookseller. “We also recognize that not all Harry Potter fans who want to read more about the wizarding world visit pottermore.com so weve developed Pottermore Presents to reach those fans through other channels.”
