The era of Pottermore has come to a close, but the era of Wizarding World Digital is just beginning.
Wizarding World Digital officially launched Thursday.
Pottermore was a special place for Harry Potter fans. For most, it was the definitive Sorting Hat experience. Many discovered their Hogwarts houses via Pottermore, as well as their wands and patronuses.
But now that Pottermore has moved over to WizardingWorld.com, does that mean you have to give up your house, wand and patronus? Thankfully, no. Your account data transferred from Pottermore over to the new site, though there are a few steps you’ll have to take in order to apparate your Hogwarts identity over to Wizarding World Digital.
Here’s how to transfer your Pottermore account to Wizarding World Digital
Step One: Create a new Wizarding World account
You’ll need to register for a new account on WizardingWorld.com. Click the “REGISTER NOW” button at the top of the home page beneath the welcome message.
From there, you’ll be prompted to enter your birth date, email address as well as a new password. The email address you enter is important. It should be the same email address attached to your original Pottermore account.
If you have multiple email addresses and don’t remember which you used, you can always log into your email and run a quick search for emails from Pottermore. Chances are that if you have an email from Pottermore in your inbox, that’s the email you used to register all those years ago.
Step Two: Confirm the transfer
If you entered the same email address you used on Pottermore, Wizarding World Digital will recognize it and ask you if you want to transfer your old account over to the new site. Confirm that you want to do this. It may ask you to enter your birth date again.
You don’t need your old password, as you’ll be prompted to create a new one.
Step Three: Verify you own the account
Once you’ve filled out all the necessary information, Wizarding World Digital will send you an email with a six-digit code. You’ll need to enter this code into WizardingWorld.com in order to complete the transfer. If you didn’t get the email, check your Spam folder.
Once you’ve verified your account, you’ll be taken to your Wizarding Passport which has the basic wizarding information that was attached to your Pottermore account. You’ll see your Hogwarts house, your wand and your patronus if you continue to scroll down the page.
You’ll also be able to choose your favorite objects, foods, characters, spells and potions from the books and movies. Selecting these items will give you a neat #MyWizardingWorld graphic to share on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and elsewhere.
Looks pretty neat, huh?
