Dan Radcliffe on Pottermore and Reprising the Role of Harry Potter in Years to Come

Radcliffe Interviews

LA Times' HeroComplex blog has a new post in which Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) reveals that he knew nothing about Pottermore whatsoever. "I’m sure that Jo will be writing a lot more in the coming years. I’m sure she has a lot more in her than we’ve read and a lot more stories to tell,” said Radcliffe, joking, "as long as they don’t involve Harry, I’m quite happy to buy them.” The actor went on to describe the end of the films as, "bizarre; we’ve been talking about it for so long, and now it’s finally here,” but added that reprising his role in years to come, "would be a bit odd":

I’d be very skeptical about that. First of all, I don’t think that she will [write another Harry Potter book] and second of all, oh, I don’t know, the idea of going back to something after 10 or 20 years? At that point, I will have worked 20 years to establish a career outside of it, and at that point to go back to it would feel a little self-defeating. I could feel completely different at that time, but at this moment, it feels like it would be strange and not the way it would or should go.
Radcliffe also spoke briefly about his continued role in Broadway musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", commenting:  ”We’re doing well [...] and now I just have to keep it up until January.”

I totally agree with you Daniel! I don’t know how she will ever continue Harry Potter, because she left it in such an amazing way! But, if she wrote about the kids, that’ll be okay, right?

A spokesperson said that it won’t be a new book. I’ve seen suggestions of an interactive website of some sort?

You took the words right out of my mouth. Except, I dunno if it would be as good if she wrote about his kids. Kinda overkill, don’t you think? Not that I don’t want her to write more Potter, I do, and I think it would be amzing, but she ended it perfectly. I think that we don’t need it. We want it, but its not needed. Know what I mean? I would like an encyclopedia, though.
Onto Pottermore, so now Dan knowing nothing, unless he’s prentending, probably means Pottermore’s not gonna be another movie, and we KNOW it’s not another book, so then… what? I’ve hear whispers about an interactive website, I thought it could be some sort of monthly magazine, but those aren’t all quite as… spectacular as what I’m expecting. I think if that were what Pottermore was, we would all be disappointed, like there was something missing, you know? I’ve given up on guessing, I want to be completely surprised. I cant wait!!!

I hope that another Harry Potter book isn’t in the cards, I feel it would ruin the perfect ending that she already gave to the series. It ties everything up yet at the same time lets the fans decide what they’d like to see happen to Harry in the future.
If she did write about the kids it might be too much like trying to recreate the Harry Potter series and with the Potter books being such a phenomenon I doubt that a series like that would ever come close, though I don’t doubt it’d still be amazing. All I’m saying is it wouldn’t be the same and it’d be difficult to try and create a separation between the two.

There’s so much more to the magical world than just Harry and his story. While I loved the characters and the narrative we got with him, I’d like to see her go back to the world some day. It doesn’t have to even involve Harry. She just set something up that’s so wonderful and so detailed, I’d hate to not get more stories out of it.

Lets face it, we are all someday hopeing for another book. Be it about the kids, which would be so great, or marauders, equally great. We Potter fans will always want more!

Writing about Harry’s kids would probably ruin it, because Jo left in such a perfect ending place.
