Is It Any Good?
Diehard fans will find plenty of Potter paraphernalia on HARRYPOTTER -- WARNER BROS: The site includes movie photos, trailers, downloadable posters, wallpaper, screensavers, and more. Kids have several options to get in on the action: They can sign up for an e-newsletter, connect to the movie on Facebook, or learn about the latest Harry Potter video game. An additional section links to the official Harry Potter DVD site, which offers more info on past installments of the series.
There's a ton of info about the latest movie on hand, so kids hoping to get a peek at part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are in luck. However, aside from a motorbike game, the site's activities are pretty much limited to viewing movie info or buying or downloading promotional goods. But chances are, Harry Potter fans won't much mind -- what self-respecting Muggle wouldn't be thrilled with the chance to download seven different Harry Potter-themed wallpaper designs?
Online interaction: Users can't chat with each other or connect on the site, although there is a link to "Join the Final Battle" with an app on Facebook, where members can connect, as well as links to other sites where they can interact with other Harry Potter fans.
