In an interview this past Wednesday morning, Rowling was questioned about continuing the Potter series. Tween Tribune brought us the details.
And she said that while “where Harry’s story is concerned, I’m done,” she was considering a new story set in the same universe.
“I don’t want to go mechanically back into that world and pick up a load of odds and ends and glue them together and say, ‘Here we go, we can sell this,’” Rowling said in an interview broadcast Wednesday. “It would make a mockery of what those books were to me.
“But … if I did have a great idea for something else, I probably would do it. I am very averse to the prequel-sequel idea. A sidestep could maybe … well, we’ll see.”
Rowling also acknowledged that she wished she had had more time to work on a couple of the Potter novels — she did not name them — which had been written “on the run.”
“And I read them, and I think ‘Oh God, maybe I’ll go back and do a director’s cut,’” Rowling said. “I don’t know.”
This brings up an interesting question- which would you prefer for a new Potter series: the Marauders generation or Harry’s kids?
