New Harry Potter Movie Coming Soon? J.K. Rowling releases an update on ‘Harry Potter’

After the defeat of Voldemort millions of people asked the same question, what will Harry Potter do next? Warner Bros. asked the same question and decided to make a movie out of J.K. Rowling’s book ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them‘.

Now, J.K. Rowling answers the multi-million dollar question this monday with a short story describing an older ‘Harry Potter‘.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has posted her latest story on her web site Pottermore.com, featuring Harry Potter and his old friends in their 30s.

The latest short story is published nearly seven years since the last book in the Harry Potter franchise. The 1,500 word story reunited Harry with his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger along with other friends of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Pottermore.com said the article “offers a snapshot of the current lives of the former Hogwarts friends, as well as a tantalizing glimpse into the next generation.” 

The short story centers around the Quidditch World Cup 2014 and describes Harry Potter, now turning 34 as having “Threads of silver” in his black hair. He also has a mysterious cut over his cheekbone, which is most likely due to his career as a wizard trained to arrest dark wizards.

Will this new short story mark the start of the new set of ‘Harry Potter‘ movies? Only time will tell. But, seeing how Warner Bros. is adamant about expanding the Potter-Universe, you can most likely bet on it.
