Famed Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling isn’t only working on her first adult novel; she’s still got more Potter in the works! And this time it’s a Harry Potter encyclopedia, set to answer all of the questions we’ve ever wondered about the teenage wizard and his friends.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Rowling took to her popular Pottermore web site to make the announcement. She said some of the encyclopedia’s content forms the new content on Pottermore. She also said it will likely be a time-consuming process. That makes sense. After all, it took her four to five years to put Pottermore together after publishing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2007.
So no release date has been set. But EW‘s Hillary Busis has already started coming up with questions she hopes are answered in the encyclopedia. For instance:
Where do Hogwarts professors go during their summer vacations? What are the 12 uses of dragon’s blood? What’s behind that locked door in the Department of Mysteries? And why in the world did Hermione and Ron name one of their kids Hugo?
What questions do you have for Rowling??
