Fortunately Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 will be released on Blu-ray April 15th, and that will help sate the craving, but to go along with that, WB has launched a new website that allows you to play games, watch videos, and download desktop wallpapers and stuff for Harry Potter. The difference is, every time you do something, you’ll earn points, which can then earn exclusive video clips from the Harry Potter films. To make it easy, here’s the official release I received:

Pretty cool, huh. Right now, there’s nothing major on there. There’s only a couple videos and a couple games on there, but of course it’s designed to grow as it gets closer to the final film’s release. With the promise of prizes coming, it’s a safe bet, many muggles will be jumping on the Quest in order to try and cash in. Who knows, maybe this point system will be how they release the Part 2 trailer…. Okay, probably not, but it’d be pretty cool!
