JK Rowling: Harry & Hermoine Should've End Up Together!

J.K. Rowling has opened up about her smash hit “Harry Potter” book series and admits that Harry and Hermoine should have ended up together in the end!

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” Ms. Rowling shared in the new Wonderland mag issue. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

She added, “I know, I’m sorry. I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”

And it looks like Emma Watson agreed with her too: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”

JK Rowling Bringing 'Harry Potter' Stage Play to Life!

Great news for all Harry Potter fans out there: author JK Rowling has announced there will be a stage play of the beloved book set to open in London’s West End!

The play will “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast,” the 48-year-old author said in a statement (via MTV).

JK will act as a co-producer for the show alongside theater veterans Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender. She will also reportedly work alongside a playwright, who will pen the script.

The play is expected to hit the stage sometime within the next two years.

ARE YOU EXCITED to possibly see a Harry Potter stage play???
