Hundred of millions of us have shared seven years worth of adventures with Harry Potter and the question remains: Will there be an 8th? Is that it for Harry Potter? Can the highest earning novelist in history really have that kind of will-power to say goodbye to the beloved characters forever?
Says J.K. Rowling:
“There have been times since finishing, weak moments, when I’ve said ‘Yeah, all right’ to the eighth novel.
“If – and it’s a big if – I ever write an eighth book, I doubt that Harry would be the central character. I feel I’ve already told his story.
“But these are big ifs. Let’s give it ten years.”
TEN YEARS? Is that in real-time or Hogwarts-time? I guess it’s “meantime” as J.K. Rowling is currently working on a political fairytale and an adult novel. I can’t wait for any of it. As a side note, does anyone else think Harry Potter looks sorta like Stephen Colbert?
