'Harry Potter' Author Hints She May Revisit the 'Potter' World -- but Without Harry Deadline
J.K. Rowling, the author of the “Harry Potter” books, says in a new interview that there may be more to come from the magical world of Harry Potter, Deadline.com reports.
“The celebrated author says that she may produce ‘director’s cut’ versions of two of her Harry Potter novels, and doesn’t rule out additional books in that world -- but without Harry,” the story reports. “When it comes to the boy wizard’s story, ‘I’m done,’ she tells the BBC in an interview to promote her new novel for adults, ‘The Casual Vacancy.’” Rowling adds: “I just think it would be for the sake of milking it and that’s just not in me.”
Rowling is not big on the idea of a prequel or sequel. “I’ve never seen it work well in either literature or film,” she said.
“Nevertheless, she says that ‘if I did have a great idea for something else’ in the universe she created then ‘I probably would do it,’” Deadline reports. “She’s also mulling the possibility of tidying up some of her Potter novels that she believes ‘needed another year’ of work.
“There’s one towards the beginning and there’s one towards the end that I definitely felt that about,” Rowling said. “I had to write on the run and there were times when it was really tough. And I read them, and I think, ‘Oh God, maybe I’ll go back and do a director’s cut.’ I don’t know.”
