Wizarding World Digital – the new joint venture from Warner Bros and Pottermore – has today announced their Official Harry Potter Fan Club.
This comes alongside Pottermore’s permanent move to WizardingWorld.com and the switch of all their social channels from Pottermore to WizardingWorld. Pottermore is officially no-more.
According to Forbes:
The Official Harry Potter Fan Club will be available to access via both the website and [Wizarding World] app, and will provide fans with ‘curated experiences from the Wizarding World’, including a Fan Club newsletter, member benefits and the opportunity to subscribe to a paid membership experience: Wizarding World Gold.
Paul Kanareck, Managing Director of Wizarding World Digital says:
‘The Harry Potter global phenomenon continues to be loved by fans of all ages – from the millions of people who discover the books for the first time to those who explore the movies, audiobooks, stage play, visitor attractions and games each year. We have a wonderful opportunity to create new experiences including a fan club for the digital age, which offers an amazing breadth of content and new interactive platforms that will give our fans around the world a truly connected experience across the Wizarding World universe.’
It seems the ‘fan club’ is your Wizarding Passport as, when you click here to join, you get directed to your personal Passport page.
More importantly, though, it seems the eagerly anticipated events will be next year:
