Pottermore Website 220x150 J.K. Rowling Launches New Pottermore Website but What is It?It’s coming to an end Muggles! Last night, the final trailer for the final ever movie in the Harry Potter franchise hit the net and after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits the cinema and gets it’s DVD and Blu-ray release that will be it for all things Potter forever!!

Of course it won’t! This cow will be milked until we’re all long gone! The Harry Potter franchise in itself is simply massive. It’s the biggest movie franchise of all time and the books are some of the most sold in the history of printed word. Last night, just before the final trailer was released, www.Pottermore.com was launched by J.K. Rowling and no one know what it is but some have speculated….

Could it be an MMORPG? MMORPG stands for Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. Millions of people around the globe play these already with the big one being World of Warcraft which according to various stats has over 11 millions people playing online.

The idea of bringing Potter out as an MMORPG does sound extremely appealing. I bet there are millions of people out there who would want to live inside the world of all things Harry Potter with J.K. Rowling or those in charge able to add new elements to the game all the time. This could simply be a new viral to promote the movie but we have a feeling it could be much more than that. I guess we’ll find out ‘soon’ as the website suggests!

As yet we still don’t know what Pottermore is but we’d love your suggestions so let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    Well we’ve got 6 days until the announcement is made, theres a youtube channel for the announcement: http://www.youtube.com/JKRowlingAnnounces 

    I would HOPE that it would be the encyclopaedia of the HP world as she has mentioned in the past that that would happen. The rumours that Pottermore.com is going to be a digitised version of this doesn’t get me that excited as I’d rather have a hard copy printed, so if it is a digitised version I would hope that a hard copy book is released simultaneously.

    The rights for pottermore and everything related to it were bought in 2009 so whatever it is its been in development for over 2 years, so is going to be detailed whatever it is. 

    We’ll just have to wait and see…!
