Enhanced E-BookEdit

On 5 July 2011, an updated and enhanced e-book was released.

There is a new section called "Four Years Later" in which Anelli discusses events that occurred in the fandom in the years since the original publication of the book, including the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, conferences such as LeakyCon, the International Quidditch Association, the important work of the Harry Potter Alliance, The Harry Potter Lexicon trial, and StarKid's A Very Potter Musical. There's also a section about Harry Potter not ending, but continuing on into the future.

There is the transcript of Anelli's lengthy interview of J. K. Rowling, with Rowling looking back on her life throughout the years when Harry Potter was being written and published.

There is also some material from interviews with others people, such as Laura Mallory, Christopher Little and Neil Blair, Kris Moran and Mark Seidenfeld, and David Heyman.
