J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue

J.K. Rowling has announced in a new interview with that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose. She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot more detailed," but now that Book 7 is in our hands, J.K. no longer has to hold back any information about Harry Potter, and has now given us a lot of new details about the story and the characters.

Reader Comments:

I'd like to find out more about Hogwarts and the like.
None the less, I appreciate this information a lot. I can't wait for the encyclopedia.

I really hope J.K. Rowling makes another book for this series! At least a prequel or something. This entire story is so great and fantastic, I want to here more about it! Although, I also want to know what happened to George and his shop in the aftermath. Why did Jo have to Fred?!

I just finished reading the seventh book. I'm Dutch, but I couldn't wait all to november to wait for the translation. I liked the final chapter, but I expected it to be a little more detailed. A Harry Potter encyclopedia sounds neat.

I hope we find out more about Harry and Ginny's children, as well as all the other children born to the Weasley clan. Jo should definately write an encyclopedia about the books and say in it more about who married who and their families.

I think that this interview was the biggest spoiler of all, although most of it was more or less understood. I don't like the fact that both Harry and Ron are Aurors. Not unless there was something different in MoM. JKR says there is since Harry and Ron joined. I would like to think of Hermione as Minister of Magic though. Brains, looks and an affection for reading and doing the right thing. Why not, after all who was all for house-elves, goblins and non wizards during the whole series? A new and even golden era would be possible for all.
Come on, Luna and Neville together? like there is no other for Neville? I'd prefer someone else outside Hogwarts, maybe Gabrielle, Fleur's sister, the guy deserves a very pretty girl, he's a hero and he could be the chosen one don't forget. Anyway, all is possible.

Dave, thanks a lot for this... as you said, it's not really enough for us, but it puts my mind at ease... a little. I really hope JK writes that encyclopedia, and I hope it is sold widely, so I can put my hands on it. This I say because, for example, I haven't been able to find "Fantastic beasts and where to find them", and I would absolutely love to read it.
We need to know loads more... Draco, George, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, what happened to the rest of the Eaters that didn't , etc. But well, in time we shall know. In due time.

This is great. I really wanted to know more about the story at the end, as I'm sure many, many other avid readers did too.

Someone should ask her why the story ended so quickly. Usually with all of her books there is some sort of calming period after the climax. It seemed as if ly Hallows ended on a climax. I think she owed it to Lupin, Tonks and Fred to give them a proper burial and mourning section just as she did for Dumbledore, Cedric Diggory and Dobby, all of whom's s touched me far more than the former three.

I actually watched this, and thought I'd add, because this article didn't mention it:

Somebody mentioned Snape being a hero, and she replied with, "Is he?" and went on to say that, even up to the end, he was a bully/nasty, and when someone asked if he would have cared about Harry if he wasn't in love with Lily, she said no.

Perhaps this could help with some Snape grievers, to know what J.K. herself thought of the situation... but even if it doesn't, now you know.

Why should she simply give us random bits of information at unexpected times, why shouldn't she publish a small book with the middle name of Harry's great-great-grandparents?

I thought the book was excellent- and I enjoyed reading the above paragraphs as well.

I too would be eager to read a preqel or sequel possibly about the next generation of witches and wizards? And I know everyone would go crazy over a book about Harry's parents' era at school and beyond.

The encyclopedia be something to look forward too!

I loved the last harry potter book, like them all and i have read them many times. I agree with the person above about the encyclopedia and cant wait to see it. ive been reading this site for agges and though not many belived me when i told them the theory about dumbledore not being i thought it was true the whole time. it turns out it wasnt but all the snape clues were true and also i saw an articule somewhere on this site about dumbledores wand and i had no idea that it would come up in book 7. im hoping for another book in a few years time either on harry or his children. does anyone think that J.k write one?

i also really thought that harry would become headmaster of hogwarts as it always says how much he loves the school.

thanks for the great articles on the site!
