Harry Potter author has mysterious announcement

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has a mysterious announcement to make. She’s launched a website to promote a secret project called Pottermore.com. The page says Pottermore: Coming Soon… and has J.K. Rowling’s signature in between illustrations of two owls. If you click on either of the owls, you’ll go to a youtube page that gives a countdown, saying how many days, hours, minutes and seconds there are until J.K. Rowling’s announcement on June 23, with a mysterious message that reads, “The owls are gathering… Find out why soon.” It can’t be to announce the release of the new movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, because that’s not until July 15. Her spokesperson told the BBC it’s “not a new book” and isn’t “directly related” to the final Potter film, adding, “We are not saying anything more at the moment.” Any idea of what J.K. Rowling could have up her sleeve?

    I tried to read the books, got to 1/2 way thru the 4th..I just stopped. I haven’t seen a single movie. I don’t care but if I had to guess, I’d say… Maybe it’s Potter having a baby and grown up.

    well if you actually read the books you would have seen in the send of the 7th book that there was a 19 years later when potter is grown up with children so it can’t be that because we already know that

    Maybe one of his offspring is Voldermort! Like the evil guy put a spell in Potters sperm! Then he must decide to kill his own son. There’s a good Potter movie for ya.

    Maybe she’ll write the prelude to the birth of Harry, like talk about his mom and dad when they were younger. Or maybe as far back as Dumbledore and his family.

    In the statement it says not a book. Also, not related to the movie directly.
    Guidelines for writing Potter Fanfic would fit. Video game… mmo maybe…

    She’s taking over Oprah’s spot with her own show…

    When you have something this profitable, “they” will not let it die until they sucked it dry. I hope for the sake of her work that it will not be rushed for the sake of making money and tarnish what she has accomplished so far.

    It’s obvious it’s somewhat related to Potter and it’s probably not publications so maybe animes or interactive web based games.
