Is a Chapter Closing on Harry Potter?

Is a Chapter Closing on Harry Potter?

According to multiple media sources, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is expected to make a billion dollars this weekend. This is obviously very impressive and an outstanding feat for everyone involved in the making of these movie. And of course none of the success the franchise has achieved could have occurred without the support of the loyal fans.

But what does this mean for the fan base?

I, for one, think that it shows that the fans will not go away quietly. The large crowds that showed up to the theatres show that they are still passionate and involved into the fandom. And they have plenty of avenues to continue their experience.

1)
Pottermore is JK Rowling’s new Harry Potter project. It’s a new web-site that will have a ton of new information regarding the series, in an interactive experience. A million people will be selected to participate in the Beta period. A MILLION. That’s how strong the fandom is.

2)
Another possible way the fans can continue the experience is to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. This theme park is the most visited portion of Orlando Studios and is expected to expand in size and scope in the near future.

Overall, the Harry Potter fandom has a great chance of staying strong in the future. Many of the fans grew up with the series and probably will not abandon the trio anytime soon.

  3. Thanks for reading!

    I don't agree with those who say Twilight is the next Harry Potter. On so many levels it doesn't have the appeal or impact as HP. And its just not as good!

    And I also haven't gotten my email! :'(
