J.K. Rowling Releases New Pottermore Short Story on Dolores Umbridge
As we learned last week, J.K. Rowling has written a new story on Dolores Umbridge, arguably one of the most disliked characters in the series, as part of Pottermore’s Trick or Treat Celebration. Today, that new story has been released along with the opening of Order of the Phoenix!
Here’s a teaser of the new information released by Jo:
Dolores […] is one of the characters for whom I feel the purest dislike…” writes J.K. Rowling in a note at the entry’s conclusion. “Her desire to control, to punish, and to inflict pain, all in the name of law and order, are, I think, every bit as reprehensible as Lord Voldemort’s unvarnished espousal of evil.”
Plenty of information was revealed, including details from her childhood and the fact that Umbridge was indeed a Slytherin.
Head to Pottermore for the whole story, and check out the full press release below.
In addition, Pottermore will hold an event on their Twitter featuring #UmbridgeFacts later today.
