To all the Harry Potter fans out there, great news! New books have been announced by JK Rowling which continue expanding the magical world and provide more allure to the wonderful Harry Potter universe. The statement was announced via the Pottermore website. The books will focus on the subjects taught at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. They are expected to be short and the first two will focus on Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions and Herbology. The first e-book will be released on the 27th June!
The Harry Potter universe was a hit with various segments and will hold a very special place in the hearts of nineties kids. The movies which followed the books became a sensation, making Harry Potter a worldwide phenomenon. The series basically grew with kids of the nineties and most continued to avidly follow the story as they progressed into adulthood. The series composed of seven main books and eight movies provides a worthwhile reading and viewing experience. As the story progresses, it takes a darker twist as by the fourth book and movie, we start seeing the demise of good characters. Characters which build sympathy with the audience, but are killed off, thus introducing the element of heartbreak in the story.
Both the books and movies gained great traction and maintained big audiences. The story eventually culminates between a final war between Harry Potter sympathisers and Voldemort’s followers, which ends with the demise of Voldemort and everything he stood for.
Many fans are following with great interest as JK Rowling seems to be on the prowl as she is unveiling new content. One of her recent works is the play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which has not been adapted to a movie. Could this be on the cards? Only time will tell.
One thing is for certain. A potentially new Harry Potter movie will undoubtedly be well received.
