Harry Potter’s website delayed

THE LAUNCH of the highly anticipated Harry Potter website Pottermore has been delayed after a test version of the site experienced higher than expected traffic. The site will host the first e-book editions of the boy wizard’s tales and is expected to be a financial boon for its author JK Rowling and publisher Bloomsbury.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers aims to recreate the magic of the Harry Potter movies with a major tour at its newly renovated Leavesden Studios on the outskirts of London, with the attraction due to open next spring.
