Pottermore website announces launch date

Harry Potter fans will not have to wait much longer for a website that will cover all things, well, Harry Potter.

The Huffington Post reports the Pottermore site is scheduled to open for business in early April.

A statement posted on the Pottermore official blog said the site's publication was delayed from last October when after getting feedback from early users it was clear the original platform "wouldn't be suitable when millions more users came on to the site."

Developers decided to move Pottermore to an entirely different platform set up, according to the site.

The Huffington Post says the site is expected to offer e-book editions of the seven Harry Potter books but a Rowling spokesman said the sale of e-books had not been confirmed.

According to the Pottermore website, they'll be adding exclusive content from Rowling and features, such as sound, for fans to explore.
