We receive so many emails from Harry Potter fans that I always use caution when posting a rumor -- talk about a slippery slope. Readers have been asking me to get crackin' on more Harry Potter theories and I always respond by stating that I will begin the Potter mania after summer. Most of the little Potter details I typically dodge (when not during "Potter season") and try to stick with news, scoops and rumors that will create a bit of excitement.
The latest rumor, sent over by 'PotterFan' (read first), claimed that The Sun reported two possible titles for book seven in the Potter series. This obviously created a whirlwind of emails with only one giving some confirmations and added details.
Harry Potter Book 7 Title Is (Updated)...
'Nixx', an admin over at HPFWNL, recently sent over some new information including a link directly to the UK Patent Database.
Just read your article ... and they are correct in reporting the trademarks of certain titles .. although they put up the wrong ones ... i am an Admin of a Harry Potter Fansite and once i heard about this did some digging of my own the following is from a post i put up on my website ... oh ... i had heard about this June 26th during a Mugglecast done by http://www.mugglenet.com.
They also trademarked (Registered) 15 other possible titles ... NOW ... 12 of them have been Withdrawn and there are still 3 that are Registered for Trademark ... I dont remember if he stated a timeframe from when they all were registered to being withdrawn ... will have to listen to mugglecast again to find out .
Trademarking HBP could NOT possibly have been a guess on WB's part ... is JKR letting them know the titles in advance?? ... did she provided a list of possible titles and has been narrowing it down for them??
Could the next book be one of the remaining 3 titles??? your guess is as good as mine .. The three titles remaining are as follows:
1) HARRY POTTER AND THE ALCHEMIST'S CELL
2) HARRY POTTER AND THE PYRAMIDS OF FURMAT
3) HARRY POTTER AND THE CHARIOTS OF LIGHT
I have looked at the Patent List for Harry PotterHERE and did notice that a couple of the titles were put in all the way back in 2000. Considering that JK Rowling has had the last book figured for years, however, the date might not mean anything.
I personally dug HARRY POTTER AND THE MUDBLOOD REVOLT.
FYI: I recently had a discussion with a good friend on reasons why one should be excited for 2007 (entertainment wise) and I gave a list as follows:
