The final instalment of 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' will bring more than Moments to Pottermore.com

When the concluding chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are released in the coming weeks, we will also be introducing some new features to Pottermore.com. Over the next few weeks, here on the Insider, we’re going to tell you about some of them. We’d like to start by telling you about the Story Navigator.

The Story Navigator

On Pottermore.com, Harry Potter’s story is depicted through a series of interactive illustrated Moments accessed from the Gateway. With the continued addition of more Moments we wanted to create an easier way for you to browse through them.

The Story Navigator will allow you to browse through all the available Moments in any order you wish

For those who know the stories inside out, you might want to jump straight to parts of the books that you love the most, whether you’ve explored the Moments leading up to them or not. The Story Navigator will allow you to skip ahead to any Moment available on Pottermore.com, giving you the freedom to explore them in any order you wish.

For those who would like to follow Harry’s story as it unfolds in the books, you will still be able to explore the Moments in the order they are presented to you – chapter by chapter, Moment by Moment.

The way you explore the Moments will remain the same; most Moments have multiple layers so, using your mouse to double click, you can explore each layer and find items to collect, as well as new writing by J.K. Rowling to unlock and read.

All Moments that you’ve yet to visit will appear to you in black and white, whereas all those you’ve already explored will be shown in full colour. There will also be some markers to show you where to find J.K. Rowling‘s new writing and other interesting things in the Moments.

Stay tuned to the Pottermore Insider as, over the next few weeks, we will be telling you about some of the other features that we will be introducing on Pottermore.com, as well as releasing more information about what’s coming up in the final instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
