J.K. Rowling Announces She's 'Done' With 'Harry Potter'

Sad news for Harry Potter fans!

Author J.K. Rowling has announced that she’s officially done with Harry‘s story after The Cursed Child.

“[Harry] goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done,” J.K. told Reuters. “This is the next generation, you know. So, I’m thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now.”

She added, “[The play] chimed perfectly with the material I had about the next generation and I could see it would work perfectly. So, I never wanted to write another novel, but this will give the fans something special.”

The play takes place 19 years later, and follows Harry‘s son Albus Severus as he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is now playing on London’s West End, was released in book form on J.K. and Harry‘s birthdays – July 31!

J.K. Rowling Wants 'Harry Potter' Play to Go International

J.K. Rowling poses with the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the play’s press preview on Saturday (July 30) at The Palace Theatre in London, England.

Before the play began, the Harry Potter author opened up about her hopes for the future of the play.

“I’d love it to go wider than [Broadway]. I’d like as many Potter fans to see it as possible,” she explained to THR.

The play’s producer Sonia Friedman added, “Hopefully more than America, hopefully many countries at some point will get to see it. But it’s a big piece of theater, it’s a big endeavor, you can’t just turn it around overnight. But if everything goes to plan over the years, we will get there.”

New 'Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them' Poster Debuts at Comic-Con

Almost the entire cast is featured on the brand new poster for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The new imagery made its debut at 2016 San Diego Comic Con this weekend.

The movie opens in 1926 as Newt (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.

Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18th!
