After weeks of head-scratching and fact-finding, Pottermore is finally here and Potter-heads now know what JK Rowling had up her sleeve: A new interactive take on e-reading for the Harry Potter books.

With the announcement that has been teased for nearly two weeks in the run-up, JK Rowling released a video online detailing her new project. She says in the video: “‘Im thrilled to say that I’m now in a position to give you something unique: An online reading experience unlike any other. It’s called Pottermore. It’s the same story, with a few crucial additions. The most important one is you.”

The experience won’t be available until October, but fans will at least have something big to wait for. Aside from it being the first time the books are available in electronic format, Rowling is upping the ante.

“I’ll be joining in too, because I’ll be sharing additional information I’ve been hoarding for years about the world of Harry Potter,” she said in the video.

The announcement comes just weeks before the release of the final Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which will hit theaters on July 15. Watch the trailer below:
