Return To Hogwarts? JK Rowling Leaves 'Door Ajar’ For More Harry Potter Books
Will Jk Rowling write more Harry Potter books? In an interview with the BBC’s Will Gompertz, broadcast this morning (September 26, 2012), the author explained that it was “murder” leaving behind the characters that she had created in the Harry Potter stories. One the one hand, she insists “where Harry’s story is concerned, I’m done. I just think it would be for the sake of milking it and that’s just not in me.” Then, however, she dropped a bomb by revealing that she has “left the door ajar” into the world of Harry Potter and Hogwarts: “If I had a fabulous idea that came out of that world, because I loved writing it, I would do it. But I've got to have a great idea.”
So, it seems that the final nail is yet to be hammered into the Hogwarts coffin. Rowling could still, hypothetically create more fiction based on that world. In the meantime, her younger fans will simply have to wait until they are old enough to enjoy JK Rowling’s new book, which is most definitely not for children.
When she was asked if she was worried about children accessing the book, which contains some pretty “vivid language,” she replied “I hope that we've made it really clear that this isn't a book for children. I've been very open about what the themes are, we've talked about what the story's about. I would have thought that parents can make a very clear choice... I would have to ask why have kids got such untrammelled access to the internet that they are downloading.”
