J.K. Rowling to Release New Story on Halloween!
As part of Pottermore’s Trick or Treat Celebration leading up to Halloween, it has been revealed that on October 31 J.K. Rowling will release a new 1,700-word story!
The story, which was teased by Pottermore in this post last Saturday, will feature none other than Dolores Umbridge. From Pottermore:
Umbridge is not only one of the most malicious “Potter” characters, [but] she is [also] the only person other than Lord Voldemort to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry. The new exclusive J.K. Rowling content provides a rich, 1,700-word back story about Umbridge’s life filled with many new details, as well as Rowling’s revealing first-person thoughts and reflections about the character.
Sounds like it’s going to be awesome! Could this story be a prelude to Pottermore releasing the first chapters of Order of the Phoenix? We sure hope so!
While we’re eagerly awaiting the release of the story, be sure to play the other fun games and riddles being posted on the Pottermore Insider Blog!
