The Future of Harry Potter
« on: April 29, 2006, 02:35:04 pm »
JK Rowling has stated numerous times that she doesn't intend to write any more books set in the Harry Potter world after the fifth book and an encyclopedia of stuff that she came up with but didn't put in the books.

Which leads to my question.  What do you think will happen to the Harry Potter copyright after the seventh movie is finished and Rowling lies down on her gigantic nest egg?  It would be a farce if something as popular as HP was locked up forever, and nobody could have permission to use it again--the Harry Potter series is my generation's Star Wars, or at least it has the potential to be.

A cartoon will probably be made, and then in 15 years, new movies.

Not 15... I bet therell be remakes after shes dead though and then we'll all go: 'I remeber the original movies. Daniel radcliff was THE Harry Potter' and so forth (even though he actually sucks)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well, Rowling wouldn't need to write more, ever. She could buy an island in the pacific or a nice apartment in Dubai and live heppily ever after without lifting a finger again. Only authors don't work that way. She'll probably release some more fantasy books with zero magic in them(pun intended), which will be badly recieved, and then she will try to write adult books and fail, and then she will write an autobiography.

She never wrote any

As for books shes stopping at 7 (Harry potter at any rate). Judging by the last one she should have stopped at 5

There will not be anymore books because Harry dies! Duh!

As for dieing. they only way harry can kill val dermort is by dragging him into the vale

And if you didn't know. She says the last word in the book will be scar. What do you think the last sentence is?

I think its ether. “On the babies forehead was a lighting bolt shaped scar” (Ginny’s and Harries  ;D ), or something like “On the tombstone was a lightning shaped scar”. Whatever, those are just two I thought up fast.

What do you think?

I honestly wouldn't care if they stopped making Harry Potter.  No offense to the people who enjoy it.  I watched the movies purely for CGI effects.

Huggkruka, You have the psychic touch.

Oh, and Harry doesn't die, Snape sacrifices himself to save Harry at the end. She writes a new series of wizards books, called "Adventures at Hogwarts" after she writes her autobiography, that is a seven book prequel to her original seven. They too are turned into movies, and all the fans of the original hate it.
Please, lets not bring religion into this...
