We’ve got a few things on our Harry Potter holiday wish list, but J.K. Rowling’s personal gift to Potterheads worldwide tops them all. ICYMI: #PottermoreChristmas kicks off THIS Friday, December 12. That’s right, Rowling plans to publish a new short story for fanatics to unlock every day at 8 am EST for 12 days. Over 28,000 Harry Potter fanatics have RSVP’d to the Facebook event.
In true HP fashion, readers will have to decipher riddles to get the most out of Rowling’s short stories. This Halloween, Rowling posted an essay revealing insights on Dolores Umbridge’s background and vaguely mentioned that the devilish character was inspired by poeple she knew IRL.
With this slew of short stories, Potterheads can expect updates on creatures and characters, “a new potion or two” and the spotlight on one of Harry’s arch nemeses, Draco Malfoy. Known for rubbing elbows with the Death Eaters in his and Harry’s final years at Hogwarts, he eventually steps back from practicing the dark arts as an adult. We can’t wait to see what Rowling has in store for us during the 12 days leading up to Christmas.
What do you predict the #PottermoreChristmas stories will reveal? Tell us in the comments.
