Merry Christmas with Harry Potter

on November 15, 2005 by Martina Comments

Yahoo! is running a special promotion for the upcoming release in Europe of the new Harry Potter movie (on Nov. 18th). Ads for “Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire” are appearing on Yahoo’s homepage in the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain. The Harry Potter movie has its own minisite where users can learn more about the characters, play some games and download screensavers, icons, wallpapers and AOL icons. On the minisite visitors can also create their own Christmas wishlist and share it with friends and relatives. Of course all items are Harry Potter related and are available at popular online stores such as Amazon UK. Unfortunately you need a very good sight to read the tiny text and enjoy the wishlist, but I think this is a smart idea to engage users and generate word-of-mouth not only around the movie but also on the related merchandising. This is an example of the email you receive (click the image to enlarge it).
