Is There More in Store for ‘Harry Potter’?
Woo hoo Harry Potter fans! Creator J.K. Rowling admitted during her televised episode on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Friday that the beloved story of the world's most famous bespectacled wizard could continue.
"I could definitely write an eighth, ninth, tenth," the Scottish-born author told Oprah. "I'm not going to say I won't. I don't think I will … I feel I am done, but you never know."
UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE! Am I right? That's enough to hold on hope for another story about Harry, Ron, and Hermione for sure.
On location in her native Edinburgh, Rowling also told Oprah that she felt an enormous sense of loss upon finishing the seventh and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. "It was a bereavement," she added.
People also reports that the billionaire mother of three says she still worries about money after having struggled early on after her divorce to her first husband. She expressed sadness over the fact that her mother, who passed away just six months after Rowling started writing, didn't get the chance to witness the global impact Harry Potter has had since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was released in 1997.
Her biggest surprise? Rowling says the late King of Pop Michael Jackson had dreams of turning the famed story into a musical. Now THAT would have been something!
Part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows opens in theaters worldwide on November 19.
