J.K. Rowling says she’s done writing “Harry Potter” books.
Speaking at the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” Rowling said this is Harry’s last adventure.
“He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done,” she said according to The Independent. “This is the next generation, you know. So, I’m thrilled to see it realised so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now.”
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is a play Rowling co-wrote, set 19 years after the events of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” It’s now available as a book, which makes it the eighth story in the “Harry Potter” series.
This doesn’t rule out more books in the “Harry Potter” universe. Much of “Cursed Child” focuses on Albus Potter, Harry’s son, and Scorpius Malfoy, Draco Malfoy’s son. We might see more adventures with them.
Rowling also wrote the screenplay for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the first in a trilogy of movies set in the “Harry Potter” universe, but several decades before Harry was born, and in America rather than Europe. It’s coming out on November 19.
