Pottermore’s long-awaited Patronus quiz seems to be on the horizon, according to a new tweet from J.K. Rowling.
This morning a fan tweeted Rowling and asked for an update on the quiz, which’ll let us learn what animal shoots out of our wands when we successfully cast “EXPECTOOOOOOO PATRONUMMMMMMMMMMM!” In response to the fan, the Harry Potter author hinted we’ll be getting some news about Pottermore’s Patronus quiz soon:
@Karbear2013 An announcement is very close…

The Patronus quiz has been something Rowling’s promised for a while, yet it’s never seen the light of day. It’s been two years since she first teased that the quiz was coming to Pottermore:
@AlwaysUchiwa Keep watching Pottermore…

And in February she said that it “won’t be too long” until we get to take it.
I’ve done my watching, Jo. Years of it.
The Patronus quiz has been highly anticipated because we’ll finally be able to see what our personal animal is. Rowling’s, by the way, is a pine marten.
