Pottermore Countdown Clock Revealed on YouTube

J.K. Rowling

The Pottermore Twitter account (@Pottermore) has been updated to share that Owls are preparing to deliver some more news about J. K. Rowling's newest Harry Potter project. According to the tweet, a new YouTube account has revealed to show a countdown which notes there are currently 6 days and 14 hours away "until J. K. Rowling's announcement." The official Pottermore website has also now been updated to link to the new YouTube account, entitled J. K. Rowing Announces.

We suspect the Harry Potter author to reveal what exactly Pottermore is on or around June 23, 2011.

As readers will recall, ten map coordinates were scattered across nine fan sites and one official Twitter account, revealing letters that spelled out P-O-T-T-E-R-M-O-R-E. The speculation started here with the first letter revealed on Leaky, leading to confirmation that Pottermore is actually J.K. Rowling's newest project. A Twitter account (@Pottermore) and official website (Pottermore) launched soon after.

Speculation on the trademark information of Pottermore has also been making its way around the internet. The info, which was registered in 2009, says that Pottermore is trademarked for, among other things, multiple-user networks, online boards, digital audio, printed books, toys, retail stores, and more, and more, and more - in short, pretty much everything. We don't feel this gives much direction one way or the other.

Leaky has seen a preview of Pottermore and it is breathtaking. As always, stick close to Leaky for the latest on Pottemore.

Can’t wait! And only Jo would think of doing something like the special street view and all this most people would just be boring and announce it. :P
But so annoyed that I’ve got an exam the day its announced! I hope that I don’t miss the announcement because of it! :(
