What’s next for the Harry Potter universe? Book 8? A prequel? A new film?
There won’t be an eighth Harry Potter book, J.K. Rowling has explicitly said so. The closest we’ll get is J.K. Rowling’s West End play/script book called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It’s not a prequel, but is a new canon story set in Harry’s world. It was released in July of 2016. Warner Bros. are also working on a film trilogy: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Set seventy-odd years before the events of the Harry Potter books and in New York, J.K. Rowling is penning at least the first two screenplays.
Can I have your autograph? Or meet you, talk to you, marry you etc.
You can most certainly have my autograph, though I assume you’re under the impression that I’m Jo Rowling, Dan Radcliffe, someone from Twilight (sigh), or an array of others involved (or in some cases, not) with the HP franchise. We get a lot of email every day from fans who think we’re somehow involved with the books and the movies, and I assure you, we’re not. As much as you’d like Jo’s autograph, or Dan’s personal email address, we can’t help you. Like you, we’re fans, and have no connection to these people whatsoever. The moral of the story: it was funny the first thousand times. Please don’t write in with questions like this. We simply can’t help you! (Trust me, I’d LOVE Jo’s autograph, too.)
If you really want to speak to someone involved with the series, try Twitter.
Where can I submit my theories and ideas? Will JKR see them?
You can submit your theories to us through the articles section. We know that JKR browses through the fan sites on occasion; she even mentioned on her official website that she read some of the editorials by Harry Potter Fan Zone readers. So to that, we say yes!
Alternatively, drop us a line on Twitter — we’re @hpfz.
