  JK thrilled by effects in Chamber of Secrets
Updated 15 November 2002, 18.33
JK Rowling with stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson

JK Rowling has revealed what she thinks of the new Harry Potter movie - as it hits cinemas across the UK.

Cinemas are expecting kids - and adults - to storm screenings across the country on the opening day of Chamber of Secrets.

Amazing effects

In a special interview released this week by Warner Bros, JK Rowling said she was thrilled with the special effects.

"I was just watching it and accepting that Dobby was jumping up and down on Harry's bed, so that's wonderful," said the author.

She also hinted that although the second novel was hard to write, it contained some very important storylines.

"Key things happen in book two and no one knows how important those things are yet," she said.

Loads of screens

The Chamber of Secrets will show on more than 1,000 screens in the UK - that's 40% of all the screens in the country.

And it's already taken 8m in previews in the week before the film's official release on Friday.
