J.K. Rowling Texts DanRad A Sad Face & Promise Of No More Harry Potter Books

Calm yourselves, Potter fans. It's going to be alright

J.K. Rowling has promised Daniel Radcliffe that the Boy Who Lived will not live again. That is to say, there will be no more stories about Harry Potter in J.K.'S repertoire. She's over it and is moving on.

During the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part One last night, DanRad confessed to sources that the author who gave him a career also promised him she wouldn't be writing anymore books based on Harry Potter, thus keeping him from having to star in anymore movies. Dan explained she sent him a text message following the film's London premiere last week. He explained:

"Basically, it amounted to the fact that she felt I had been very good in this 'Harry Potter' film, and as a reward for that, she wasn't going to [write] any more 'Harry Potter' [books]. I'm sure she will be writing other books, but I can pretty much guarantee that Harry will not be a feature."

We always say never say never. And besides, who says you have to play Harry Potter should she write another book that instantaneously becomes another movie? We're sure there are a lot of other young actors who would be thrilled to make millions upon millions of dollars for one movie. No worries about that!

Still, maybe instead of a Harry Potter story, she could write about some of the other characters from the franchise and leave Harry out of it. Like how about his parents or Dumbledore? Those sound like viable options to us.

What about U, Potterheads? Do you want more stories about Harry Potter or do you feel seven is enough?

    Once his career tanks, he'll be begging for her to write another book about Harry Potter grown up…or something.



  2. 2

    It would be pretty neat if there was a prequel following Voldemort's rise and leading to Harry's parents' deaths.



  3. 3

    Fuck Harry's Parents…she SHOULD do a series on Severus Snape. It can start from his obviously troubled childhood his years at Hogwarts and his time as a Death Eater leading up to the night he pledged to Dumbledore he would spy for him. NOW THAT would be amazing.



  4. 4

    I want a movie of Tom Riddles aka Voldemorts life ,or Snape .They are my fave lol.Or a movie about the the founding members of Hogwarts [Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff].



  5. 5

    I want more harry potter! at least a book who says what hppened to the characters, an epilogue of a few pages is not enough for me I want more! at least not a novel just info of what happened next

    thank god, I don't want any more Harry Potter books, it's done and finished - anymore and it'll just become a cash cow.



  8. 8

    Re: JadedGemy – Yes! Yes, yes, yes. Snape is the most psychologically dynamic and interesting character.



  9. 9

    Radcliffe looks weird. Good thing he's made buckets of cash so he won't have to work again. Like that guy from the Hobbit. Some people just don't age well.

    Daniel Radcliff sucks

    guess you didn't see Rowling on Oprah, she is not ruling it out.



  13. 13

    no, i love harry potter but if she does any spin off's it won't be good and with make the series a joke just the the secret life of bree tanner and the twilight franchise.



  14. 14

    She should do a compilation of "short" stories. There are sooooo many characters I want more info on. Like why does Dumbledore's brother have such a hard on for goats? And how exactly did Luna Lovegood's mother die? More info on Dean Thomas' father would be nice too.



  15. 15

    Ummm… Dumbledore is dead. Not a very viable character for a viable best seller. She could do a knock off Dumbledore biography…



  16. 16

    Perez, in a documentary she made, when explaining the future generation (which is what the epilogue is about) she says that the person that interests her the most is Albus Severus Potter, Harry's youngest son (who could very well be a Slytherin). If she WERE to continue the series, I would bet all my money that she will continue right where the epilogue stopped and talk about Albus Severus's first year at Hogwarts. (Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius is also in the same year… as is Ron and Hermione's daughter Rose)

    I think a collection of short stories on the other charaters would be great. Snape, Dumbledore, Luna, Dobby, Olivander, Victor Krum….brief stories about the interesting sub characters…. I think if she did a book about the Potter, Ginny children then it would just be a copy of the original….and what would they battle? A new Voldemort? A short story collection would be best.



  18. 18

    She should write another book, pushing out about 10 years. And when Dan, Emma and Rupert are looking for something to do, in 10 years, she will have had a brilliant idea….

    Damn you Daniel! Damn you to hell! jk jk …. I would love to see more books from JK Rowling especially on Witchcraft and Wizardry, they remind me so much of the movie "Worst Witch". I have yet to read the books, at least that'll keep me goin once the last movie is played! I would love to know about the Original Hogwarts gang, so now that Missy Padfoot enlightened me about The Harry Potter gang kids news, I want to see something on that as well. C'mon everyone! I'd give me life for Hogwarts to exist, this world is horse shit!

    I think, again, people are just overreacting. First about JKR saying she could write more Potter books so everyone assumed we were getting more Harry, and now I think it's the same only reversed.
    I think Harry's story (and thus DanRad's participation were there to be another movie of sorts to accompany it) is done. JKR told us what was important and what happened to him, so I would never expect more books just about him.
    That being said, the great magical world of Potter is up for grabs. There are plenty of other side characters (like the Marauders, the next generation going to Hogwarts, and other friends we came to care about) that I'm sure she could write plenty more. It just wouldn't add on to the existing series. Like, she already wrote several books that were mentioned in the Potter books (Tales of Beedle the Bard, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Quidditch Through the Ages) and are just more about that world she created. I would love it if she just gave us more of that, even if there is no more Harry.
    But really, I would just love to read anything by JKR.

    Re: Katiedora – I agree with you I would love to see more on other characters and whatnot in Hogwarts, but will they be made into movies? Why not do a Television series like 6 episodes per year that way they can put more time and effort into it, it's better than rushing it and putting out garbage



  22. 22

    MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE! :)



  23. 23

    ungrateful little shit. I thought he sucked to begin with. I loved the books, but couldn't get into the movies ( maybe saw the first 3) because he was such a dud. Bite the hand that feeds ya. Where would he be without Harry Potter?

    I think she should write a prequel to it when his parents AND snape were attending hogwarts… or even before that… kinda worked for Star Wars.



  24. 24

    I don't know why hes being so bitchie about it!! Harry Potter is much bigger then him!! It made millions before him and could continue to make millions without him. He acts like without him JK wouldn't be able to wrote a book. She doesn't need him OR his permission.



  25. 25

    uhhhh his parents are in the beginning of each movie for like.. 10 minutes max and dumbledore's dead.. have you even seen any of the movies?



  26. 26

    no more harry potter stories, minus the epilogue the story ended perfectly, it is finished
