GMIPoll: Only One Third of Harry Potter Fans Say the Boy Wizard Will Live to a Ripe Old Age

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 17, 2007

The death of Harry Potter J. K. Rowlings has already admitted that two main characters will perish in the final installment of the Harry Potter series. Most speculation is centered squarely on Harry: Will he make it through the series unscathed, or will he meet his doom? That’s exactly what we asked Harry Potter readers. Only nine percent say Voldemort will kill the young hero. A little more than half (52 percent) say Potter sacrifices himself so Voldemort can be killed. Two percent say he falls off his broom and dies (maybe by a stray bludger?) A little over a third (34 percent) say Potter will survive the series and die of old age.

A few (1 percent) predict that Potter is immortal and never dies. The GMIPoll, powered by global market intelligence solutions provider GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.), surveyed 509 Harry Potter readers online in the U.S. using GMI’s permission based GlobalTestMarket consumer panel. The survey was conducted from July 14th to 15th, 2007. All participants were paid for their opinions.

Is Albus Dumbledore really dead?

The mighty wizard Albus Dumbledore was killed at the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, book six in the series. The controversial ending had many scratching their heads. Did Potter’s mentor, one of the most powerful wizards in the series, just die? Even after Dumbledore’s funeral, only 25 percent of readers were convinced. The rest, a full 75 percent say Dumbledore is still alive.

Is Severus Snape evil incarnate or simply misunderstood?

Snape kills Dumbledore at the end of book six, but does that mean he’s loyal to the Death Eaters? We already know that most readers believe Dumbledore is still alive, but what does that mean for Snape? Is he a spy for the good guys? Forty-eight percent say he’s good, but more than half (52 percent) say Snape is evil.

Harry Potter Vs. Lord Voldemort

This seemed like an easy question: will Harry Potter kill his arch nemesis Lord Voldemort? Most (77 percent) say Potter will kill Voldemort, while 23 percent say Potter will fail in his quest.

Harry Potter 8: The Post-Hogwarts Years?

Rowling has maintained that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the last in the seven-book series, but she is keeping the door open slightly. While she did say that another Potter book is unlikely, she also said “never say never” after a huge petition circulated over the internet called “Save Harry”. Most Potter readers polled (54 percent) say they believe Rowling when she says it’s strictly a seven-book series. Forty-six percent say you’ll see more of Harry after book seven. The Potter series made Rowlings the world’s first billionaire author, and we’ll have to wait and see if she can permanently walk away from the wildly popular franchise.

Searching for spoilers

Few books have been held under such tight pre-release security as those in the Harry Potter series, but leaks are inevitable. Already spoilers abound for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but how many want to know the ending before reading the book? Almost 75 percent say they would not read spoilers. The rest (26 percent) say if they haven’t already started scouring the internet, they soon will.

Buying Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Even with all the hype surrounding Harry Potter, most people say they won’t get the book the day it comes out. Thirty-five percent say, “I’m in no hurry. I’ll pick up the book when I have time.” Twenty-five percent have pre-ordered the book and are having it mailed, which means it will likely get to them a day or two after the book goes on sale. Nine percent say they pre-ordered the book, but will wait in line and pick up the book opening day at 12:01 am sharp on July 21st, 2007. Fourteen percent say they will wait in line hoping to get a copy when the book goes on sale. Ten percent say they will borrow the book from a friend. Two percent say they will check it out at the library.

Those who are really excited about the book are not alone. Twenty-three percent of Harry Potter readers say they are so excited that they plan to start reading at 12:01 am the day the book goes on sale.

'Harry Potter' by the Numbers: Audience Grew Older, Series Got

The Harry Potter franchise aged considerably over its 10-year, eight-film lifespan.

The audience for the two “Deathly Hallows” films — the last one opening over the weekend — were 56 and 55 percent over the age of 25, respectively.

That’s quite a bit older than when the franchise debuted in 2002. At that time, 60 percent of the audience for “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” was under the age of 15, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

“Those 10-year-olds going to the first movie, holding the hands of their parents, ended up driving to the last midnight shows,” noted Warner distribution chief Dan Fellman. “Along the way, we increased our fanbase.” 

Indeed, defying the usual physics of aging, the series grew stronger both creatively and at the box office.

If source-book author J.K. Rowling sticks to her pledge to produce no more Potter novels, the Warner’s film series ended on a high note this weekend, generating the biggest domestic, foreign and global opening of any film ever. 

According to final Monday numbers, finale “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” grossed $481.5 million globally this weekend, an all-time record.

Also, according to official numbers, the film now owns both the domestic premiere record ($169.3 million) and the foreign mark ($312.3 million).

The series owns four of the top 10 best global openings.

In fact, from biggest non-summer opening (set by “Deathly Hallows, Part 1” back in November with $125 million) to best IMAX start (“Deathly Hallows, Part 2” did $15.5 million at 274 big-screen locations, the Potter franchise now owns most of the key movie-premiere benchmarks.

The series seemed to get better over time, not only commercially, but creatively, as well.

In terms of narrative quality, “Deathly Hallows, Part 2’s” 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes was a series best, easily outstripping the 80 percent garnered by first installment “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” back in November 2001.

Of course, it’s the box office numbers that remain the most staggering, with the series — bolstered by the weekend gross — approaching $6.9 billion over its 10-year theatrical lifespan.

This figure isn’t accounting for the massive book sales, as well as the robust DVD and film aftermarket.

With revenue like this, and the series no where near close to jumping the shark, how can Rowling stop at eight seven books?

Certainly, there’s immense pressure for her to write more.

“That’s up to her — whatever she decides to do is her call,” Fellman said Sunday. “Personally, I would love to see it.”

“My kids are age 7 and 8. We’ve had this game for two weeks and I have played it with them non-stop every day! Building the game was lots of fun, but the game itself is even better. Players representing each of the Hogwarts houses race to collect items from four classrooms. But since it’s Hogwarts, magical mayhem gets in your way. With each turn, players are able to rotate staircases or relocate classrooms to create obstacles for their opponents. It’s great educational fun for the kids to come up with strategies to hinder their opponents while moving themselves along. There is also the ability to customize the gameplay in whatever way you want to make it easier or harder. In addition, you receive special microfigures of Harry, Hermione, Ron, Malfoy and Dumbledore which are adorable. I also love how the gameboard and game pieces are sized to fit perfectly into the box without the need to disassemble much. Definitely one of the best board games around!” (Anonymous-Amazon.com)
