J.K. Rowling Contemplates Harry Potter Sequel – Some Day

posted by Kris Rasmussen

JKRowling.jpg
Fellow blogger Donna just wrote about her disappointment with author Stephenie Meyer for releasing an “Eclipse” novella to continue to prey on those rabid vampire readers who are her fans, and now it seems maybe beloved “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling might follow suit. In a recent interview she hints that she is tempted to write an eighth novel involving Harry Potter, but it won’t be any time soon. Rowlings said if she does consider writing more about Harry’s wizarding world, it would not be for another decade or so.
“Harry Potter: The Middle-aged Years”? Wasn’t part of the magic of the series that readers grew up with Harry and experienced their coming-of-age along with him? Wouldn’t seeing Harry in the midst of the tedium of adulthood sort of break that spell? I personally didn’t even like the glimpse of Harry’s future that we saw at the end of the seventh book because it didn’t give readers as much opportunity to imagine what might be.


It actually doesn’t sound like Rowling is all that serious about the possibility, admitting the notion is a “big if,”but I am curious about what all of you Potter fans think about the idea. Would you want to see another book about Harry as an adult? Or would you like Rowling to write another story about Hogwarts, but not necessarily about Harry?
And how many of you -like me- think Rowling, as well as other creators of successful books and movies, should just leave well enough alone?



  • Anderson

    I’m still upset about what happened to the Star Wars saga, and (like you) I also didn’t care for the epilogue to Deathly Hallows. That said, Rowling gave no indication that an eighth book would show “Harry in the midst of the tedium of adulthood.” In the article you link to, she even said that Harry likely would not be the central character, only that the book would be set in the same fictional universe.
    I have a lot of faith in JK Rowling, and would (without reservation) line up at midnight to buy another book set in her wizarding world. That said, if Rowling ever decides to release “special editions” of the original seven books, I’ll know to stay away.

    J.K.Rowling has revolutionized the literary industry.She has made reading fun for all ages and any new novel would be a welcomed addition to an already outstanding series. In this world of computers, technology and fast paced messages it takes a J.K. to entice people to read a good old fashion book. It is always a welcomed journey.

  • jestrfyl

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the Hogwarts series and the characters as well as the setting and dilemmas. But I think Ms Rowling has done all she can with this. Her ancillary books have not necessarily lived up to the quality and focus of the Potter books – she seems to be trying too hard on these. However, I would be quick to purchase anything new she may choose to write. Clearly she is inventive, but even more she knows well how to tell a story.

  • Alicia

    I sense if she did write another book it would probably be about the next generation. But, I would love it if she wrote something that wasn’t about Harry Potter or the wizarding world.

  • Bob

    Why do people think that the only way a story in which characters get older can continue is to have it focus on [insert stereotype of particular age group]. Sure, it’s a funny thing to say, but it makes no sense. Harry Potter is still a wizard. Indiana Jones is still a treasure-hunter.

  • Venice

    If J.K. Rowling does decide to write a Harry Potter sequel, I’d much rather she expand on the character of Neville. I loved the small bits in the books where Rowling describes Neville’s background, and I’ve always considered him to be the secret hero of Harry Potter and such a lovely character. Also it would be interesting to see J.K. Rowling expand on Snape and his perspective on things. Snape is also a hero of sorts in his own misguided, silent way. Rowling could even do well with writing about Harry’s children, their adventures and how the fact that their father is the hero of the wizarding world affects their personal lives. Another amazing character J.K. Rowling could expand upon is Dumbledore and his untold story. Those topics I think would be the best subject matter for any sequel relating to the Harry Potter series.

  • BAW

    I would like to see rather than a novel a series of short stories expanding on the backgrounds of the Hogwarts faculty, and of the previous generations (Harry’s and Neville’s parents, for example) and of the characters lives between the Second Battle of Hogwarts and the Epilogue.

  • Katie Angel

    I loved the glimpse we got into the future and would love it if JK would expand on that – maybe following the children in a series of short stories. I would also love to learn more of the backstory of several of the ancilliary characters. I find everything about the HP universe fun and entertaining and would snap up anything else that she wrote. She is a great storyteller and a very creative thinker

  • Stephanie

    I would love it if she made a sequel about the main 3~Harry, Hermione, and Ron. Especially elaborating on their seventh year. The Epilogue was quite pathetic-the whole series is about Harry and him being a boy wizard so it should be a continuation of him. Middle years is not boy-wizardy. Another thing to is that his character is the type to solve mysteries so she could easily do that by hjis seventh year being all about finding a way to save Sirius and the other wizards in the Veil at the Dept. of Mysteries. That and the fact that Voldemort could easily have unconsciously become somehow a part of Harry…their is a lot she can still do! She ought to continue the series!

  • KC

    Prequel series FTW! I will probably read anything Potter-related she writes, and just because she may or may not do something with Harry doesn’t mean she HAS to started when he’s older. She has everything before the Epilogue to play with, or even all of the kids now (Hary’s kids, Ron’s kids, Teddy Lupin, etc), not to mention a gigantic cast of characters across all seven novels, of which she could pick nearly any one and do a series from their point of view.
    What I’d most like to see her do is a series (or even one book, I won’t be greedy) starring Harry’s parents, James and Lily, and Sirius, Remus and Peter. Or how about the stories of the founding fathers/mothers of Hogwarts (Rowena Ravenclaw, Godric Gryffindor, Salazaar Slythering and Helga Hufflepuff)?
    The possibilities are endless for her!

  • CJ

    I agree with many of the previous statements asking for expansion on the character’s lives from the end of Voldemart to 19 years later (and not just the main 3 but regulars–large and small–we’ve come to love). However, I’d also like to know what/how was involved with rebuilding both the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. And what became of the Weasley’s magical store following the death of Fred…did Ron and/or Harry step in OR did it just dissolve??? Can’t imagine any of the main characters wanting to be aurors after what they survived but also unsure whether becoming teachers at Hogwarts would suffice either. These are only some of the burning questions I’ve already answered in my head (as I knew the characters) but would be nice to see which direction the creator saw them going as well. For the record, I truly believe that any sequel should intermix some of these items with introducing new storylines and characters such as the Potter/Weasley/Longbottom offspring.

    i really love harry potter and would love to see another i am 13 and i loved the books and movies. It would be great to do a follow-up on harry and ron or his kids

  • Jerry

    I would love just another book with hogwarts involved. Id just hate to see the magical land i grew up with die.

  • slytherin360

    I think it would be great for her to do a series from Voldemort’s perspective. A story from the antagonist’s perspective
    Or perhaps a series based on Dumbledore’s childhood and the defeat of Grindelwald :D
    Another possibility that has been mentioned is from James’ era, his hogwarts years and/or during the first war

  • slytherin360

    I also think it would be a good series if she were to write about a different magical school, like Durmstrang and such

  • cman

    I am 13, and love harry potter. i would not want a middle age potter. what i would like is a seris over harrys sons and daughters or a seris of the days of james,lilly,sirius, lupin, anf peter petigrew.

  • Adam Schneider

    I think that it would be neat if it took place at another school too and maybe some of the kids of the Potters or Weasleys could go to school there as some kind of different experience and they would get caught up in something there. I know it would be nice to see what the Wizarding Community is like in other countries especially the US.

  • Potterwatchfan1

    I think it would be super cool if J.K. Rowling wrote another book but not about Harry. I think she should write a book about Albus’s first year at Hogwarts. A friend of mine and i were actually just talking about this the other day. We even wrote the first page of it :)

  • Potterwatchfan1

    Actually ignore most of my previous comment. I think you should write about James’s years at Hogwarts

  • sanjay

    i think another sequel series would be awesom!

  • Anonymous

    No sequel please. It was perfectly fine the way it ended (if you forget the epilogue, IMHO). A prequel sounds good though. :)

  • DAmember

    I think we should just burn all the books that were printed so she has to wright them all over again

  • Harry Potter Fan #1

    YES YES YES! Please! I was crying when it all ended! Please! Make another one! Soon though! Thank you! Oh a prequel would actually also be good to! THANK YOU J.K ROWLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RM :P

    If Rowling wants to expand the series I would personally loveit, but I would like to have a book that continues on the actual Harry Potter possibly facing new evil like a desendant of Voldemorts ancesters (If thats possible). But I would also like it to incorperate the things that happen in the years that weren’t actually covered by the books. Or a spin-off about Sirus Black or Harry’s parents, so in short, yes I wouls love a new Potter book but mostly about the actual Harry Potter.

  • ravenclaw student

    even though I am a relatively big fan of Harry Potter (read the books, seen the movies, partaken in contests, seen potter puppet pals…), and would very much like to be immersed in the world of Harry again, I think JK should just leave it all alone the way it is. I’ve found unnecessary sequels kill the original magic. And Harry in his middle-aged years? What could possibly be exciting about that? You might counter that age is but a number, but the already-published epilogue gives us a clear look into Harry’s future. A family life with Molly-like, motherly Ginny and his three little Potterlings. It’s cheesy to the point of no return. According to Rowling, Harry’s become an Auror and head of department. Oooh, yay, he’s got the job he’s always wanted. He works for the goverrrnnnnment. Oooooh.
    You know what, let me stop rambling. I think I’ve made my point.

  • ThisKid

    I would love to see a book about Tom Riddle’s Hogwarts years, actually. I think he deserves a lot more than a few chapters explaining his rough history. I want to know how and when he, for instance, unlocked the chamber of secrets, learned dark magic, created his horcruxes, built up the death eaters, etc. I mean, for the second most powerful wizard ever, the books don’t really cover enough of that for me. But a Harry Potter SEQUEL would kill it, in my opinion. Same goes for Star Wars. It ended, the bad guys dead, so let it go. But I’d love to see a prequel.

  • Lightlard

    A sequel on adult harry, who in the right mind would read that. But frankly i would like a sequel which tells readers what happened in the inbetween 19 years with a thrilling twist.

  • hoblpants

    i say yes sequel…but follow the kids…let albus be the main character..and give harry, ron and hermoine the same roles that the teachers/mentors had in series…they are there and show up when really needed to guide and protect but the story focuses on their childrens adventures at hogwarts

  • Shawn

    I would love to see more because I am obsessed with the Harry Potter world, personally I would love to see an actual copy of The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore or a story retelling the time of Voldemort or Harry’s parents, even a few books from Voldemort at young age through rise up to Deathly Hallows, although I don’t believe Rowling would want to write something that dark.

  • Phil

    I think the comments about how boring Harry’s adult life would be are rather short sighted. Does anyone really think that Rowling would write another wizarding book if she didn’t have a good plot in mind? I say if she feels she had a worthy story to tell, she should go for it and I will gladly give it a shot.

  • Kevin

    I would love a story of harrys dad james, on how he bullied snape like we saw in the 6 th movie

  • Crystal

    i would love to read a sequel to the harry potter series, even though the general consenseus tends to be that sequels are never as good as the origional. and i agree with lightlard, i want to know what happened in the 19 years between voldemorts downfall and the epilogue. who became minister? what happened to the death eaters that survived the battle? i want to know about the weddings, births, and deaths! what have arthur and molly been up to? how did harry handle his “godfatherly” duties? i want to see the trio grow up!

  • anshuman

    sure. A sequel would be great.
    Maybe a novel about Hogwarts would also be amazing

  • Sammy-Girl

    I read somewhere that it would be about the kids she mentioned in the epilouge, more like their own adventure than a continuation of Harry’s. And I think it’s disgraceful to compare Harry Potter, which has an actual plot that developes throughout the series rather than just what ever pops into the authors head, to Twilight. I, personally, would be delighted with a sequel, but it would have to measure up to the work we’ve seen before.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Julie Schmidt

    I would love a prequel. The adventures of Dumbledore as he grew up. Or the Original Order of the Phoenix. There could have been plenty of antics with Lupin, Syrius, James, Snape, and Wormtail. How about “Hogwarts, a History?” It would have to be the same quality as her original 7. I hate to compare Twilight, since it is totally a different story, but the short story about Bree Tanner was silly. However the part of Midnight Sun I read was a great start. J K Rowling has talent, I hate to see that wasted!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment The Nam

    You all don’t follow along very well. She has answered many of those questions in several interviews already. Ron becomes an auror for a little while, drops it, then joins with his older brother in their shop. Neville marries blah blah (a hufflepuff I never know why people remember) and co owns the Leaky Cauldron. Harry becomes an Auror and sometimes substitutes as a Defense teacher at Hogwarts. Draco raises his son to be be better than him (roll eyes here-like that wasn’t obvious). Dumbledore had always been gay (gasp! I was right!).
    Etc. ETc. She even detailed Luna Lovegood getting married and finding a bunch of creatures. She mentions it all in interviews. Obviously writing a story about what we already know is pointless).
    I think instead of the next generation, she should write a part of the story we’re very unfamiliar with. How about the rest of Wizarding Society? Let’s write from the viewpoint of a character indirectly connected to the main cast but on the life of someone pureblood and in their lives (maybe something less prophetic and even more adventurous beyond London and Scotland). Maybe they’re friends with the Malfoy boy or the Potter children or the Weasley children so we get glimpses in letters or ‘hellos’ of their lives. The character should be in their teenage years-older or younger…depends really what audience she wants to go for.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Avid Reader

    I personally think that a sequel series would be most welcome, but maybe not about harry, or at least not him as the main character. Maybe a Hogwarts series about his children would be interesting.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment LT

    I think JK is right to wait at least a decade to write another book, whether it be centered on Harry or in the fictional universe in general. This would give those (like me) who grew up on the books time to “get over” part of our childhood and maybe entertain our kids, younger relatives, etc. who may not have known about the original series. I think it would be unwise to make Harry the central character simply because her audience is mostly teenagers and young adults, not persons in their early 30s and 40s. I would like to see what became of children of our original heroes since the epilogue of the seventh book does introduce them and it did kind of leave a cliffhanger when Harry’s son tells him he is worried about being sorted into Slytherin. More importantly, what did become of the Slytherin House??! Personally, I am a huge fan of the house because of its literary importance to the book (and I know I would have been sorted into that house should this universe had been real) and JK kind of leaves us wondering if any Slytherin students did stay back and side with the Order and Harry to defend their school (as I would have done). And does this house really still carry its dark reputation nearly 20 years later? Moreover, I think one thing JK will have to worry about is who would the new foe be? With the Death Eaters either dead or imprisoned, Voldemort slain, and the Deathly Hallows “gone”, what more can JK do with this universe?

    the sky is the limit for J K Rowling
    she has woven in her writing: greatest imagination, sensitive, mixed with well-based historical myth of various sorts. intrigue and yes, humor. All resulting a fascination few could resist and wanting more of it all like myself.
    All movies were well done, sometime lacking important detail, but the books offered only the best a writer can do – keeping the reader captivated and even rereading favorite chapters.
    Certainly, I am not the only one who finds this to be so.
    Please J. K. Rowling keep telling stories and write more.
    Much thanks & appreciation & heartfelt best of wishes
    & Love to you always J. K. Rowling.
    Hope there will be more in years to come.
    Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, part II was very good, a little rushed, but none the less I would recommend the movie.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Kris

    Well, it would be an interesting read to have more books about hogwarts… Certainly not about Harry Potter though. However, focussing on the same setting but with different characters is a really hard thing to do when you’re trying to please millions of fans that will ultimately become bored of the staleness that will eventually follow with writing a new book about hogwarts. So perhaps writing about another school, another series of events that aren’t necessarily tied to Harry Potter in any way, but still existing within the Harry Potter universe would be interesting. You could certainly write a story about an american wizard? That would be interesting to see the magical cultural differences. But whatever JK Rowling does Im sure it will be fantastic.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Scott Russell

    i would love them to make one about the original order of the phoenix back when Voldemort started to rise to power. That’d be Great!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Tony

    I think what would actually work, (and I don’t know if Jill Rolling has thought about this), is another entire series of books about the NEXT generation. And yes, Harry would play a big role in that if it were up to me. But look, we were all introduced to their kids at the end of the last book and movie. Now, what’s next? Let’s see something develop for this new generation.

    …And it could only mean further fortunes for Ms. Rolling, as well as further entertainment for all of us that have grown to love the story.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Alejandro

    A prequel is better than a sequel… e.g. Hogwarts:the first magic . . .. . . involving rowena, Salazar, helga and Godric….. on how they started, i mean, no one wanted to teach during those times, thats why they cant defend themselves… so these 4 founded hogwarts…. also, the broken friendship of salazar and godric….a torn out love and the creation of the forbidden magic :the horcrux >>> salazar… which made a lot of horcrux including TOM RIDDLE!!! THUS a sequel is now a need….. its NOT YET THE END…… SALAZAR will rise AGAIN!!! …. there’s still a lot of story to tell…. GO FOR IT…… hahaha… too much enthusiasm eh…

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Evelyn

    She could either right the story of James, Lily, Snape, Molly, and them when they went to Hogwarts.

    Or, which i like this better, write a story about the second generation going to Hogwarts. James, Albus, Lily, Rose, Hugo

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment aparecium

    The ending of Deathly Hallows is such that it begs for a sequel: even without Voldemort the story can be carried on: the three/four main characters being the supporting characters, and their children being the main characters this time. Another powerful Dark Wizard can always emerge…in the world of magic anything is possible…

  • http://Writeabouttheparentschildhood Jack H

    it would be cool if J.K Rowling wrote about voldemorts child hood or the parents childhood because i would be really interested in finding more about moony padfoot and prongs!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment IsaacJ

    I wouldn’t like another Harry book, especially now he’s an adult, unless there was some returning danger, or new danger. However other options stand obvious, such and the next generation (Harry’s kids; Albus, James, Lily), the founder’s period or the marauders era. Posting this, ofcourse, is fruitless as JK is highly unlikely to read this and neither are her possé but I just wanted to say something, somewhere about this about this matter.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment ben

    most of us that watched harry potter grew up with harry potter, we aged with the characters. In 10-20 years when our generation has kids around the age we were when we first read / watched harry potter, theres potential for an entire new story. the same actors could be used as they would be the parents of the main characters, and those new main characters would age with our kids

    I havent read any of the books but in the last movie it was left perfectly for a sequel. the elder wand was broken in half and thrown off the bridge, anyone could of picked it up an somehow put it together, and become a new antagonist in the future. also all the characters in the ending of the movie going to the first day at hogwarts

    i think as a fellow fan of the books she should, because both the 7th book and part 2 of the movies ebd left it wide open! if she wasnt going to then she wouldnt have let it trail off like that, perhaps a new series on the kids of Harry and the others, i mean i pratcically grew up on Harry potter, i had read the 1st book when i was 11 and now im 21 i literally grew up reading watching and playing Harry Potter.. so for the magic to end so suddenly is like…why? J.K Rowling you are by far the best writer i have ever known your books are this is not an understatement.. WorldWide Popular! i have seen so many people just come to your movies! if you were to look back at every single Hollywood release of your videos you would see that the number of people inreased with each new movie! i mean i had to wait 3 weeks just to get a ticket in my town for the 1st part of 7! so yea i miss known that there is a magical world where anything is possible like Harry’s, so plese by all means dont let the Magic that you made die….

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment john rahbeck

    In the sequal it is explained how Death got back the three Deathly hallows. It also explains what happens at Mungo’s Hospital: How Neville Longbottom became the adminstrative head of Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries and got his parents sanity back, How Dolores Umbrage was under the delusion that she was the head nurse, How Gilderoy Lockheart lost his hair, How Ginny Weasley became a nurse, How Draco Malfoy’s mother became a volunteer at the Hospital,and how Hermione was able to get legislation passed to allow elves to get treatment in the same hospitals as everyone else.
    Harry Potter is offered a position as the head of Ministry of Magic, but turns it down preferring to remain an Auror. The position goes to Hermione. Draco Malfoy becomes a professor at Hogwarts and teaches the Defence against the Dark Arts class. Luna ends up running a newspaper. Ron eventually goes into business with George and they make a fortune.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Anonymous

    I’d welcome another story to be written about a character in a different setting, perhaps taking place in America. It doesn’t have to continue the “Potter” story but I think the magical universe Potter takes place in, the one Rowling has created, is far too rich to be abandoned with the story of one boy from the UK.

    That could, perhaps, open up an entire new dazzling and wonderful story of another character who occupies the same magical world, and I would always invite fanboy-pleasing allusions and references to Potter’s story.

    Also, when you’re commenting here remember to enter your e-mail address. I didn’t and after the site told me to do so my original comment, which was quite lengthy, got deleted. That’s disgusting.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Anonymous909

    It seems like the seven books do not do enough to describe the wizarding world in detail to satisfy me personally. But an entire novel about how the wizarding world works? Or a novel entirely about another wizarding school? It just doesn’t seem like it would make a good story. I think that there is room for a good sequel to the Harry Potter series, but there is also room for mini-books that tell us about the little details we didn’t get enough information about in the series. What happened in the forging of Hogwarts time? What types of jobs do wizards get? How did Voldemort’s infiltration into the Ministry of Magic effect the future?

    These questions, I think, should be answered, but anything Rowling writes is worth reading. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Anyways, I have rambled enough.

  • David Tincher

    I think that j.k. rolling should expand the character of neville, ron , and hermione.

    I also think that she should write a book on harry potter middle aged and hopefully they can put that into a movie

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Dod Cal

    The people who don’t want JK Rowling to write any more, prequels, sequels or novellas are obviously not fans and thats that. I class myself as a hardcore fan and all the other hardcore fans all over the world would lap up anything else she wrote about the harry potter world, whether it be more on Hogwarts or a middle aged harry, but personally I walk over hot coals and broken glass for her to write a (to throw in a stephen meyer’s twilight saga bit) ‘Breaking Dawn’ sized novel of everything that happened between the end of chapter 18 and the beginning of chapter 19 of th deathly hallows. She could write and publish Harry Potter novels for the rest of her life and it would never be enough for me.

    My goodness, after looking at all these comments, prequel series, sequel series, if all these requests are granted, Harry Potter will become like the Star Wars Expanded Universe. And do we really want Harry Potter to become the next Star Wars? No? Didn’t think so.

    I feel as if a sequel where a secret descendent of tom riddle comes forward to finish the quest for immortality and theres more death eaters and harry dies but his kids actually have potential. that plot line would sell to hungry hungry hippos which make up the entire fan base of harry potter, a sequal has potential

  • http://albusservespotter Faton millanaj

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment vance

    I’d like to see a sequel/series of sequels…but rather than focusing on Harry- it could focus on his son- Albus Severus Potter who’s seen in the ’19 years later’ scene at the end of Deathly Hallows 2. His initials are ASP- so slitherin house might be a good fit for him…and possibly a way for voldemort to be ressurected.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Matt

    I guess I am in the minority, but I LOVED the epilog – especially the way Harry spoke of Severus Snape after all of us hating him for the first 6 3/4 books. I think it served the purpose of showing us that Voltemort was really gone for good and that despite all the death and pain, there really can be a happy ending.

    As much as I would love to see a prequel, maybe the James and Lily years or the Albus years, I fear a star wars episode 1 – 3. Part of the problem is you already know what is going to happen and any surprises (C3PO for instance) have no credibility.

    There can always be another dark lord and there will always be the supporting characters (Neville, Luna) who make or break the success of the main character.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment MIchael

    I think she should write a sequel and have it lead up to Harry Potter… have it go into more detail on Harry’s parents, Dumbledore and how he grew up, his brother and sister… the whole nine yards. It’ll be tough, but I think it’ll enrich the series

    Personally I would like to J.K. Rowling to write a prequel to the Harry Potter series. We saw only snippets in the original 7. I could begin with Voldemorts history followed by Snapes, James, and Lilly’s time at Hogworts. Of course the last scene would be Hagrid delivering Harry to the Dursley’s.

With all the parents and teachers, being in the background too. I’m absolutely crazy about the wizarding world of harry potter.

    It would be interesting if she could write something about harry in his adult hood. You see his kids leave on the Hogwarts express and it ends. They told about what the idea of the elder wand did but what about the cloke and well I cant remember the other one but you should get my point

      I guess you didn’t see the movie or read the books. “The other one”, the resurrection stone, saved Harry’s life in the end. It would be great to see Professor McGonagall as the Hogwarts head lady. She was awesome in the end. You’ve got to have Hermione as a teacher at Hogwarts, or the head of Griffindor. Harry Potter is the Minister of Magic. I mean, He did defeat the greatest dark wizard of all time. Sorting it all out, and the Weddings between Hermione, Harry, Ginny and Ron, would be great. Putting the Wizardry world back together, cleaning up Hogwarts, rediscovering the Dursley’s etc. There could be one more piece of Voldemorts soul somewhere out there. And, Harry must find it before it all starts all over again. Oh NO!!! LOL.

    Personally I would love to see a storyline where all harry, ginny, ron and hermione’s children are put into griffindor but albus severus is unexpectly put into slytherin and watch as albus severus struggles with this and unexpectedly finds a friend in Draco Malfoy’s child.

  • Jenna

    Personally, I would love a story where Rowling talked about Dumbledore and Grindwald, or a story in Albus’s point of view or even a story in Voldemort’s/ Tom Riddle’s (meaning young Voldemort) POV (even though that story may not be suitable for all ages). I don’t think she should do any more with an adult Harry. I honestly didn’t feel like Harry should have been with anyone, especially not Ginny, so I don’t want a story centered about that. And a story without Harry having to fight Voldemort just wouldn’t feel right. I want Harry to have peace now. He’s been through too much as it is. :) Also, I don’t want a story about new characters like Harry’s children. Neesh Emison’s story is kind of interesting, but all the magic of Harry’s story would be lost if you did something with those characters, or at least that’s what I think. However, prequels like with Dumbledore or even the founder’s of Hogwarts would be beyond amazing!

    It would be brilliant if J.K.Rowling wrote more about Severus, because he really was the most mysterious person from the book.We didn’t know anything about him for 6 years, I mean Rowling answered a lot of questions about him and discovered the truth brilliantly ,but still i feel like there is something missing ,you know like a part from me desires more.

      i love to see snape story but i can’t see that pain in snape eyes due to lilly closeness with james,his love lilly as lilly potter in that story :( nooooooooooo i can’t see

  • Stephanie Gardener

    For me, you would have to throw out the epilogue entirely for that to be possible.
    Otherwise it would have to be set far into the future of the Potterverse. And I
    don’t know if I want to have a book about that world without Harry,
    Hermione and Ron being the central characters. If they hadn’t already been
    settled in the epilogue than they could continue their adventures as Aurors,
    Professors or whatever other jobs that they had undertaken. I think authors
    sometimes forget that the adventures don’t have to end as soon as their
    characters aren’t in their teens anymore!!! “Watching” them live could be the next great adventure :)

    i think .. there should be a sequel of harry potter series … and J.K Rowling should write more about harry and his friends and what happened after the voldemort,s defeat ..and how they led their lives in freedom .. and what dangers they faced in their upcoming years and so … how they all got married and stuff .. like there should be a proper happy ending of the story

  • Ivy Hunter

    I would love a sequel. More incite on the Malfoy family is personally what I’m craving. As the book and movie series progressed we all saw Draco Malfoy veer towards the “good,” side. In the last book it tells of the Malfoy family leaving the scene when Voldemort comes to realize Harry is indeed alive, and then when Harry and Ginny send off their son, James, we see Draco with a woman and his child. I admit to being a bit bias towards Draco, but don’t we all have our favorites?

    I would love to see more with Ron and Hermione love story after Rowling’s negative comments! Make Ron step up a little romantically! He was a great character! Hermione and Ron on a quest w/out Harry.
