The second trailer for the final Harry Potter film, HP and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two, appeared on the Web late Thursday. The movie opens on July 15th.
Causing even more excitement among Potterites is a mysterious new J.K. Rowling Web site that appeared on Wednesday, Pottermore. It links to a YouTube page, with a countdown clock to a Rowling “announcement” on June 23 at 7:00 a.m., Eastern. The Bookseller, the UK’s book publishing trade magazine, quotes a Rowling spokesperson, who crushes hopes by saying, ”It is not another Harry Potter book but we cannot reveal any more at this stage, fans will have to keep an eye on the website. It will be launching soon.”
