It looks like Harry Potter fans will have something to keep them occupied once they complete “Deathly Hallows”. JK Rowling has made it known that she will be creating a in depth Harry Potter encyclopedia.
The epilogue of her final book only offers clues to what happens in the years after Harry’s schooldays, so fans will be delighted to hear plans for an encyclopedia are under way.
In an exclusive interview with American television, Rowling confirmed she “probably will” publish more details about her beloved characters.
She said the encyclopedia would include background stories of characters she has already written but had to cut – such as Harry’s school friend Dean Thomas.
She also said the book would include details of a new headmaster at Hogwarts, and who was teaching defence against the dark arts at the magical school.
“I’m not going to do it tomorrow because I’d really like a break,” Rowling said, “so you may be waiting”.
The final installment has already set all kinds of sales recors for a novel and the internet craze has been unbelievable. The latest movie is a blockbuster and with two more in the works there doesn’t seem to be a let down coming. The encyclopedia should also be a major hit when it arrives, but I assume you won’t see that until after the final movie when fans are really hurting for the next Potter fix.
