I am both excited and a little confused. The video doesn’t reveal much–and I’m glad there’s still an element of mystery–but it DOES give me something to look forward to. Nearly every summer growing up I could not wait until July for the next book release (they were pretty regularly released the week of my birthday, which always felt like a personal gift thank you very much J.K. Rowling). And then we looked forward to the release of each new movie. And recently, we could all feel the dreaded end looming over our heads.I think J.K. Rowling realized how pretty much the world culture was getting super depressed by the “It All Ends” posters. A week ago, we all thought we had nothing to look forward to anymore. So I appreciate that the suspense is being extended a few more months.
Just like all the previous releases, we don’t know much about the content of the next “reading experience” as she phrased it. Just some clues and hints. Enough to whet our appetite.
Not to brag, but I think I pretty much called it (in the comments). She’s constructing more material within the confines of the already written Harry Potter world and releasing some old resource material she’s been holding on to.
What do you all think? Disappointed? Excited?
