New Harry Potter Book On The Way?

The final film in the Harry Potter saga (Deathly Hallows: Part 2) is nearing its release date, and while Potter fans are excited to see the conclusion of Harry’s story on the silver screen, they’re also disappointed that no new Potter adventures lay ahead. Well, that’s not exactly true.

J.K. Rowling’s Youtube Channel features owls and a countdown clock.

On June 22, 2011 (at 8 pm EST), the legendary children’s author J.K. Rowling will make an announcement about the next chapter in Harry Potter’s saga – or at least that what’s the owl has led us to believe. What exactly the owls are gathering for hasn’t been revealed, as a new Harry Potter web site that popped up on the Internet prompted fans to take to a wild goose chase to find out more.

“This is not a new book,” a note on the web site read, “But it is something equally exciting.” What could it be??? A new Harry Potter online game? A new potion that clones Harry? No one knows except J.K. Rowling and she’s not talking… head over to and see for yourself.

Make Movie Magic
While Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 won’t hit theaters until July 15, 2011, you don’t have to wait for the magic – you could make your own movie about wizards this summer. Take a filmmaking summer camp at Stanford or another university that hosts a Digital Media Academy program. In DMA’s filmmaking summer camps and two-week filmmaking academies, student campers learn from industry experts like DMA Instructor Neal Dhand. “The film industry is dominated by people who know both ends of filmmaking,” says Neal. “Behind the camera, in front of a computer…and everywhere in between! We’ll be experiencing some of all of that, this summer.”

DMA’s digital filmmaking programs are tailor-made for young talents who have a love of movies and are eager to master actual production techniques now. No matter your level of interest and experience, there’s something for every type of aspiring filmmaker – or wizard – at Digital Media Academy.
