she doesn't intend to write any more books set in the Harry Potter world after the fifth book

Fifth huh? Wow, wierd how she's already written 6...and the 7th is on the way. She's not only richer then the Queen of England (she might be after the last movie and book), but also has the ability to travel through time.

I didn't look too hard but here's how much she was worth last year: 500,000,000 or $920,331,650.40. I don't believe that includes her latest book or movie release.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

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.

It doesn't just have the potential to be; it is, and it'll probably end up being a little bigger when all is said and done. Besides, Star Wars should have died after the 1st three films. Also, Harry Potter is going to have seven films while Star Wars only has six, so it's not like it 'has potential.' It's met its potential and then some.

And I hope she never writes another Harry Potter related book after the 7th, and that she never leases out the universe for other writers to defame and destroy.

Good one. Seven books were planned from the beginning though.

No, no. It's all a plot by Dumnledore to take over the world. One chapter he's gonna be missing from the coffin and later he'll pop up after Voldemort is dead, cause he can't kill him himself. Turns out he was making horcrux things of his own. Then he's gonna try and kill Harry after Harry is no longer useful to him. Why do you think people say he acts so evil in the Movies?

Hermionie: "You did it Harry, Voldemort is dead!"
Harry: "Yeah, but so is Ron and Neville(this gives the book a "darker" twist, thus ensuring the book is higher literature)"
Hermione: "And Dumbledore... Snape killed him."
ZombieDumbledore: "Not well enough, I'm afraid!"

This was a funny comment at first. But then I realized I heard it with Richard Harris's voice and it became not funny....:(

No worries, man. Just had this mental image of laughing at Richard Harris saying that line and then realized how sad that was, and promptly felt guilty for laughing at it. Not your fault.

I never thought much of the books or the movies, the whole thing just seemed too ridiculous to me.  Even if most of this stuff did exist, who would call it "humplyduff" or whatever.  All of the names for things she uses are just cringe worthy.  She uses the exact same plot device in every book as well, the bad guy is ALWAYS the person you least expect.  My brother was reading the fifth book when it came out, and within the first day he was like, "it's the mouse".  When it becomes that predictable for a 12 year old, you know you have a problem.  And what was up with the bad guy in the third one being called "Lupin"?  Could he possibly be a werewolf?  hmm..

At the very least, I'll have some respect for the series and the author if it stops after the seventh like she said.

'Good things don't last forever' pretty much sums up my feelings on the future of Harry Potter. It's had a good run, but I think the author understands the importance of ending something on a good note. It's much preferred to ending up like one of the authors that have fans screaming at them to finish it already because of how ridiculously long a story has gone on. Too many authors tarnish prior works because they seemingly do not know how to let go.  Harry should go out with a big bang just like Calvin and Hobbes did, instead of living on in monotony.
