J.K. Rowling announces “Pottermore”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Not ready to say goodbye to Harry Potter once the eighth film, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” comes out in theaters next month? You might not have to.

In London this morning, “Harry Potter” scribe J.K. Rowling revealed her plans for “Pottermore,” an “online reading experience unlike any other” (according to the author) that will add the fans to the Harry Potter experience. It sounds like an interactive hub for fans to gather, share and expand on Rowling’s Potter universe.

Watch Rowling’s official online announcement here.

The details are a little vague, but I imagine we’ll be hearing plenty more about “Pottermore” as we get closer to the October date Rowling mentions in the clip. For now, what do you think? Are you excited about the concept? Or do you need to hear more?
