J. K Rowling has pretty much broken our hearts right after our spirits were lifted above the freakin' clouds.
It's been a whole day since our lives were graced with the marvel of a new Harry Potter creation, aka the release of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, and already our party has been pooped on because J. K. Rowling delivered us a serious blow to our hearts.
If you're like us, the past day has been filled with shirking our responsibilities so we can go hide in our (pretend) rooms under the stairs and bury our head in our brand new book (well... play, technically)! Needless to say, the play is everything we could want it to be.
So naturally, as we've fallen in love with the characters of Albus, Scorpius, James, Lilly, Delphie and the old unbeatable crew, our Harry Potter attachment has become an obsession and we're chomping at the bit for more, more, more Harry Potter!
Well, our prayers were answered - J. K. Rowling delivered us some news... Just not the news we ever wanted to hear.
When attending the premiere of the new London West End play, she was asked if it was the beginning of a new series in the franchise, to which she replied that no - she is done with the boy who lived.
Did Rowling just break up with Harry Potter...?
Yes. Yes she did...
The beloved author said, "He 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 realised so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."
We can't process this information.
Rowling had also spoken how the play, which she worked alongside the writers on, was something special to give the fans as she never wanted to write another novel.
On the bright side, even though we feel like a Dementor is sucking the life out of us, Rowling has been pushing to make the play go global! Which we hope actually eventuates because how freakin' awesome would that be?!
Plus! Don't forget we have all the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films to look forward to!
So all in all, we are in a bittersweet moment of excitement towards the gift we were blessed with yesterday and the film around the corner (November 17!), but heartache at losing Rowling's words on the boy wizard himself.
Perhaps we can conjure up a potion to fix this... If only we knew how.
