Well, hmm, this sounds really interesting. JK dug out boxes of old notes and has compiled a lot of background information about the characters and the wizarding world. To reveal all of that as game play and in ebooks and on video – cool! You really should keep an eye on it all. Pottermore Official Website. The site Officially opens in October but you can enter your email address and find out when registration opens. Plus, it says, “Pottermore is a free website that builds an exciting online experience around the reading of the Harry Potter books. Come back on 31st July to find out how you can get the chance to enter Pottermore early.”
Two big pieces of harry potter news this week. J.K. Rowling launched a new website called Pottermore. It is still unclear what all J.K. will put on this website – but so far it looks really good. For more details read about the launch at J.K. Rowling: Pottermore Website Launch.
Also this week Warner Bros. released the final trialer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Since this is the very last movie…this will be the very last trailer. And now, we wait for July 15th. I would keep an eye on Pottermore though, since it was launched before July 15th I think interesting things will probably appear there leading up to the movie.
The Kane Chronicles #2: The Throne of Fire is even more action packed than #1 The Red Pyramid. In this one Carter and Sadie are at The Brooklyn house teaching other trainees how to handle their powers. The two have a mission though and there’s no putting it off if they are to save the world. They give new meaning to “I have a bad feeling about this!” They battle monsters at every single turn and you can feel the suspense of the pursuit on every page. They are methodically being hunted down.
Well, I think this cover has fewer clues in it than the last one, but maybe you will notice something important that I don’t see. I liked the title of Chapter One – “Percy”!, but won’t give anything else away until you have a chance to read it too.
Exclusive Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 footage aired on ABC Family yesterday – see below. ABC Family is airing a Harry Potter marathon of all of the movies this weekend and they say they will reveal more sneak peeks throughout the weekend. So, you can sit and watch HP all weekend, or maybe keep on eye on youtube next week and see what pops up there.
