Pottermore? Is there more Harry Potter

The second official movie trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 (now less than one month away!) was released yesterday, the HP7 part 2 web site was updated, and J.K. Rowling made an interesting announcement complete with accompanying web site and YouTube channel ... Pottermore.

The second trailer is, as Harry might say, brilliant; it features a montage of scenes from previous films as well as HP7 part 1 & 2. Luckily, I have time to read and savor Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and watch HP7 part 1 before HP7 part 2 arrives in theaters. As to Pottermore, Ms. Rowling is not saying much at this point. An AP announcement published in the Washington Post yesterday noted:

"Spokeswoman Rebecca Salt confirmed Thursday that is a new project for the “Harry Potter” author. She said the site is “not a new book” and “not directly related” to the final Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which comes out next month." -- Washington Post, 6/16/11
We'll find out more in 5 days, 22 hours, 10 minutes, and 14 seconds (give or take).
