Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Book 7 Countdown..

hp-book-7.jpg

Alright all you Harry Potter geeks- yeah you- I see you re-reading Book 6 on the train to work to catch up on the plot in preparation for the July 21st release of the FINAL HARRY POTTTER!! 3 hours, 46 minutes, 53 seconds… watch the countdown on Mugglenet, the best Harry Potter site on the net.

The theories and speculations about Harry’s fate are reaching a fever point. Many think that Harry is doomed to die, because a) the prophecy said that either he or Voldemort must die b) in mythological literature the hero often dies c) so that no one can write “Harry Potter 8” or some other lame book about what Harry does post-Hogwarts.

The official Artful Dodger guess: Harry doesn’t die. Voldemort does. Dumbledore isn’t really dead. Snape is good. Post your opinions in the comments section above.

We’ll see if I’m right this weekend!

Fun Harry Potter celebrations happening in the Boston area this Friday:

  • Harvard Square in Cambridge is going completely insane- find out more info here
  • Potterpalooza begins in Coolidge Corner, Brookline at 8:00 PM
  • More info here at Boston.com for parties in Salem, Braintree, Boston University

Another awesome theme park: Dickens World!

Not only is there going to be a Harry Potter theme park, but there is already a Dickens World! Just opened in May 2007, it’s located in Kent, England. It’s like the Theme Park Gods are making my dreams come true. I wonder if there is a character actor walking around as the Artful Dodger!!??

Now if only there were a Louis Vuitton world… well actually you can visit the Louis Vuitton Museum in Asnieres, France, 25 minutes outside of Paris. Or you can just go to the Champs Elysees LV store, aka “The Mothership.”
