J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter Is Done After Cursed Child

Believe it or not, Harry Potter turned 36 last month, and author J.K. Rowling marked the occasion by releasing the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the London stage play continuation of his story. But it's actually the beginning of the end of the boy who lived.

Cursed Child picks up right where Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 left off: with an adult Harry and his wife Ginny sending off their two sons to Hogwarts. The play reunites Harry, Ron, Hermione and Draco, but Cursed Child also introduces Draco's son, Scorpius, and a whole new class at Hogwarts.

At the gala opening for the play, Rowling said (via RadioTimes) that means we're coming to the end of Harry's story. "He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done," she said. "This is the next generation, you know. So, I'm thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a five-hour play split over two parts, and although it's currently sold out, new tickets will be released Aug. 4, extending the show's run through December. But there's still a good chance Warner Bros. will adapt the play into a movie.
