Rowling continued to share about the end of the “Harry Potter” era, "[Harry] goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done. This is the next generation, you know. So, I'm thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."

Rowling might have been long done with “Harry Potter” as she went on to reveal that she had no intentions of writing another book after the seventh and final novel “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.” She pointed out that she never wanted to write another novel but “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will give fans “something special” since it is about the next generation.

The play will run from today until December of 2017. Aside from Harry Potter and his three children, it will also see Ron and Hermione 19 years after the final novel. It focuses on Harry’s son Albus .

The “Harry Potter” novels have not only been turned into blockbuster films but also theme park attractions that fans came to love.
