J.K. Rowling After The Harry Potter Series: The Boy Wizard To Be Taken To The Stage

Page 1 of 212

Even after the publication of two successful novels following her Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling just can’t help but return to the world of the Boy Who Lived. In a move that feels somewhat George Lucas-like to us, the author has announced that she is not only planning, but actively working on a play about Harry’s pre-Hogwarts years.

Rowling has been keeping busy since the final Harry Potter novel.

Harry’s ten years, spent in the cupboard under the stairs don’t really sound like thrilling subject matter. On the contrary, it sounds like things are about to get very dark, as according to Rowling herself, the play will "explore the previously untold story of Harry's early years as an orphan and outcast."

The play, which will be produced by Rowling alongside stage veterans Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender. The goal is to get the text into development in the UK in 2014. This is not the first piece of writing that Rowling has released since the final film, however.
