While J.K Rowling has mentioned before that she could defintely see herself writing another Harry Potter book one day, but no time soon. On the Oprah show Friday she had a lot more to say:
“I could definitely write an eighth, ninth, tenth. I’m not going to say I won’t. I don’t think I will … I feel I am done, but you never know.”
It sounds to me like Rowling is just spouting bullshit. Personally, with all the hype and excitement around the last film being released in an epic two part conclusion, it seems like a poor idea to say that there will “potentially” be more books. Part of the joy of the experience is being taken away from us. Knowing that something we think is ending we’re so emotionally invested in makes it feel cheap for Rowling to just say, “Okay, here’s some more”. Is Rowling just being a money grubbing witch or would there be some real value and validity in continuing the series? My only concern is that people would be tired of the franchise and exhausted of having it shoved down their throats. I mean it has a theme park, come on man! Check out Rowling on Oprah after the jump.
