Snitchseeker have posted a video from the graphic designers behind the Harry Potter series in which they discuss the design for the exciting monster Harry Potter collection. This can be viewed below. Remember you can pre-order this set (if you've got the money!) at and Mugglenet are reporting that Pottermore CEO Charlie Redmayne has released a number of comments regarding the future releases of Pottermore, along with statistics of the beta stage via a recent conference. the site4 summarised these comments as follows;
-97% of beta users looked at every single page of the site and content. - Average Pottermore user spent (spends) 47 minutes on the site. - New books in line over the next few weeks and months. - Fans mostly come to the site to read J.K. Rowling’s new content - Over the next few weeks they will be switching their focus from platform issues to content issues, in which the site is going to get ‘incredibly exciting’ and his job will become ‘much more exciting.’ He also commented that the site will get ‘better and better and better' - Over the coming weeks you will see more of J.K. Rowling’s content and books ‘fly by’ - New interactives and community functionalities will be added in the coming weeks as well. - He is constantly thinking about a digital future for Harry Potter on all platforms – tablets, phones, etc. He thinks that they should be thinking about what they can do on Facebook and YouTube. - Could be seeing ‘enhanced’ ebooks coming down the line in the next year.
Finally, Mugglenet are reporting that USA, UK and Australian teams will participate in a Quidditch Expo this summer at the London Olympic Games. More details available here and here.
