JK Rowling - Latest News, Photos, and Videos
It’s been seven years since we’ve read any new Harry Potter text, and author JK Rowling has just totally made our day by publishing a new 1500-word chapter on Pottermore!
All grown up in the new story, the 34-year-old Harry Potter has “threads of silver” in his black hair.
The story features married couple Harry and Ginny attending the Quidditch World Cup with their married best friends Ron and Hermoine.
The article is written as an article by Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter, who was featured in the original books as well.
Head on over to Pottermore to read the whole story!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, from the mastermind JK Rowling, has been given a release date for the first movie in the planned trilogy!
The first installment by the Harry Potter author will hit theaters on November 18, 2016, which happens to be just two days before The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II is set to be released.
Set about seven decades before the Harry Potter series, the movies will follow magizoologist Newt Scamander. The movies will be an “extension of the wizarding world,” Variety reports.
ARE YOU EXCITED for the upcoming JK Rowling movies???
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.”
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.

Great news Harry Potter fans: J.K. Rowling will be writing a movie that is based on the wizarding world she created in her seven part series!
“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” the 48-year-old author said in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”

J.K. Rowling has released a statement regarding her recent book “The Cuckoo’s Calling” that was released under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
“I hoped to keep this secret a little longer, because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience!” the 47-year-old author said. “It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation and pure pleasure to get feedback from publishers and readers under a different name.”
“The upside of being rumbled is that I can publicly thank my editor David Shelley, who has been a true partner in crime, all those people at Little, Brown who have been working so hard on ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ without realizing that I wrote it, and the writers and reviewers, both in the newspapers and online, who have been so generous to the novel,” she added. “And to those who have asked for a sequel, Robert fully intends to keep writing the series, although he will probably continue to turn down personal appearances.”
