The creators of the so-called Wonderbook, an interactive experience of Potter spells within a book, have been speaking about how it will interact with Pottermore:
So is there any online side to it that you are talking about yet?
Well …am if you have already got an account with the Pottermore website when you start the game you get to link your accounts at the start of the game and the same house you get in the Pottermore website you get in the game.
The creators, art director Joel Smith and producer Suzanne Tee, also spoke about JK Rowling's involvement in the process.
How much of an influence and input has JK had on the Book of Spells is it a license deal or is she there all the time?
She is very much hands on, not only did she come up with the Book of spells but she has written the story, the spells and conundrums but also her and her team have been very hands on with looking at what we have done and signing off on everything. Looking at the characters and locations and making sure they are authentic enough.
