Its not a children's book.

I don't feel like the Harry Potter series is "for kids". I know adults who read and enjoyed the 7 books. But I get it that the magical theme might be aimed to children while the relationships and the characters can be read in different ways by kids, teenagers and adults and have a deep meaning.

She ended it perfectly. We don't need another book.

"Harry potter 8 is probably not going to happen" TELL THAT TO CURSED CHILD!!

I think people need to stop pressuring J.k to write another book. There harry potter books were a huge part of my life but when J.k moved on I did as well. Do we really want every cultural phenomenon to over stay their welcome and decline in quality like the simpsons? Sometimes it is best for things to gracefully bow and leave and Harry Potter did just that. So fans appreciate what you have and what this woman gave us and just be glad it is what it is

I'd love to read about Lily/James in hogwarts and how they fell in love especially how james became a good person rather than remaining a bully... Or about Harry Potter's or someone from the HP books' kids!

I can't watch one video including her without starting to cry. This woman was my childhood and she still is a huge part of my life and everything she says and does and will do is so damn amazing. She is one of the most beautiful people on earth inside and out.

"There will probably not be an eight Harry Potter book"
This is why I think the Cursed Child is fanfiction by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany that they somehow convinced J.K Rowling to write her name on.

A book I would love to see is one about Lord Voldemort. His whole life and him creating the horn ruses and all the other magic he has ever done. I still hope😂😂

who else is watching after the announcement of the 8th book 😂😂

Sean Saxena:
kind of random but i feel like a lot of ppl are embarrassed of liking the harry potter books and there are also a lot of people who judge the books as being lame or nerdy or childish and uncool. What does that tell us about society? That valuing good morals is embarrassing? Because the books teach loyalty, friendship, courage, etc. I don't get what's lame about it. And yet i myself am embarrassed at how much i love the Harry Potter books. I absolutely love getting lost in Harry Potter world. Reminds me of that biblical saying: we aren't afraid of our darkness but of our own light.

So, by creating project lumos she wants to prevent the beginning of Tom Riddle.
B/w it's a awsome project

I am one of those who think that the seven books so well, no longer needed. I read new books that he has written and I've loved. I love what you are doing Lumos and hopefully soon reach Latin America.

She should think up another story line based on something that happened in the 1800's or something

I've always been a bit intrigued about the history behind certain characters, specifically Dumbledore. It would be nice to read a story telling events in his early life. I just find wizards that fascinating. Overall, J.K.Rowling is the reason why I am working on writing and illustrating my own children's books. She has been a major inspiration for me, and I'm happy to hear that she is trying to help children. Every child deserves to enjoy a happy childhood.

She is such an amazing person and is my role model. I have never experienced a new book release or anything,😕 but I'm a huge fan 😊 it would be awesome if she made a book of their kids

Sara Nordström
Sara Nordström:
I would say the Harry Potter is more aimed towards children than classic adult literature, but there are millions of adult fans, so it almost feels strange to hear people talk about it as books for kids. Now, I've grown up with Harry Potter, but still at age 17, when I consume all sorts of "adult" literature and so on, I still love Harry Potter endlessly. I could absolutely not tire of it. So, I just wanted to point out that it's not exactly "for kids". J.K. Rowling herself has said that she didn't consider her audience when writing Harry Potter, and so when the story becomes a lot darker in the later books, I think more mature readers appreciate it even more.

The first time I saw Harry Potter on tv, I remember the scene with sirius black dying. And I sobbed. Never thought it was a 'just for kids' film or book series. In fact, I thought she did a great job of handling the story line and talking about the tough/dark side of life in a way kids can understand.

J.K.Rowling has change a part of my life that I felt like I should also do good.
ever since 1st year of Harry new film, I changed of way if thinking to a more positive thinking and not doing wrong just as simple as turning on the lite.

This video had me tear up. I randomly went to look up her interview to see how she speaks because one of astrology videos mentioned she had same placing like me(Mercury Leo in 12th house)and then I remembered the time I read her books-neglected 7 year old at the time, it's always hard to look back. As that wasn't enough, next thing that pops up in video is that dreadful photo of a boy in a cage, while my 3 year old is sleeping next to me as I write. Such a difficult topic to think about for me personally.
