The Wizarding World website, like JK Rowling, the creator of the most popular witch franchise, announced this week the launch of the Harry Potter at Home, an online platform on which fans can consume unpublished content about books, such as reading guides, tests, articles with curiosities and activities.
The initiative, according to the website’s introductory text, is to help young people, parents and teachers to add magic to their lives and those of those around them. The release comes to accompany fans in the quarantine period, promising to take them out of boredom, but should continue on the air even when the situation is resolved.
“For more than twenty years, Hogwarts has been an escape for everyone – for readers and fans, young and old. During the strange times in which we now find ourselves, we want to welcome you back to Hogwarts, where you will find a friendly haven for you, your family and those you are caring for. “says the site.
Also check out the translation of the launch announcement on the website:
“Welcome to the center of Harry Potter at Home, where you’ll find all the latest magic tricks to keep you busy – including special contributions from Bloomsbury and Scholastic, cool magic craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler!), fun articles, tests, puzzles and more more for novice readers, as well as for those already familiar with the wizarding world. We are casting a banishing spell on boredom! “
The site also offers an open license for teachers, freeing them from problems with copyright if they want to record videos reading Harry Potter in a classroom voice for their students.
The platform also provides, free of charge, the Harry Potter audiobook in English and the Philosopher’s Stone, the first book in the franchise.
