It's not much, but lets see what we can find in this newest sneak peek to give us hints as to what's to come in Pottermore, and hopefully, how to get in early.
One of the first things I noticed is that there's secrets to unlock. I would guess that these are all the bonus insights JK Rowling has written for Pottermore.
Also, did you see the two quills on trunk and the thing that looks like a slide carousel/eye. I wonder what the quills designate? But their appearance does give a strong hint to the possibility of the quill quest for early entry.
What more do you see?
Keep hitting refresh and I'll keep updating as we go!
I can't remember if we saw the "Read About" items down the left-hand side in a prior preview (yes, we did). Will have to go check. But it's interesting to me to think about what they represent. Based on the detailed preview below suggesting that this section holds more information on places, characters, and creatures, I think these symbols represent:
- A sign of two people facing off -- characters in the story
- A finger pointing --Places
- A trunk -- Magical Things, or whatever items like the Hogwarts Express would be classified under
- The Eye? --Creatures
Did you catch Neville's toad Trevor sitting on some luggage near the train?
Oh, and it's kind of fuzzy, can't be sure, but look at the golden item suspended high in the train station like a clock. It looks almost like it has wings...almost like a Golden Snitch .
And here's the third preview!

Why, Jo, why? Why did you have to blur out all the detail?
But as we can see, there's a special section for
So, two pictures and three quills. Seems to me the quill quest may be on!
Is this all? JKR said she'd give us three previews, and she called this last one the third. Does that mean we have to go 3 weeks with nothing new to taunt us???
To see the prior sneak peeks, look at Pottermore The Final Reveal and Pottermore Previews.
Also, we're discussing eye imagery in these previews in the comment trail. For more thoughts on how JK Rowling has used eye imagery throughout the series, check out these posts: That Deathly Hallows Symbol and Mad-Eye's Mad Eye.
