Will author JK Rowling return to the Harry Potter universe? Rowling, who just released her first book for adults, The Casual Vacancy, has not ruled out a return; however, she said in interviews that Harry’s story is over.
So what could she possibly write about? According to the BBC, Rowling admitted, “I’ve got to have a great idea. I don’t want to go mechanically into that world and pick up odds and ends and glue them together.
“It would make a mockery of what those books mean to me.”
She also admitted she would like to remake her own version of two of the later Potter films because she felt they were “rushed”.
She said, “There were a couple of the Potters and I definitely knew that they needed another year.
“I had to write on the run and there were times when it was really tough.
“I read them, and I think ‘Oh maybe I’ll go back and do a director’s cut’, I don’t know.”
If JKR were to write another book in the Potter universe, would you buy it? What would you like her to write about?
I would love to read a story that is set outside of Harry’s timeline, either in the past or the future. I would find a book about Hogwarts’ founding to be fascinating. Did the founders (Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, Salazar Slytherin) ever get along? What caused Slytherin to leave (and mark Slytherin’s future students as “the bad guys” in future generations)?
With regards to JKR’s possible film remakes or “Director’s Cuts”, which films do you think she’d redo if she had the chance? What would you like to see from her if such a “Director’s Cut” were to be made?
