Upcoming Projects for the Harry Potter Cast

HP Cast

A new, brief article summarizes what some of the Harry Potter cast - as well as director David Yates and J. K. Rowling - will be moving on to now that the Harry Potter films are finished. Here are what just a few cast members will be doing:

British comedian Robbie Coltrane [Hagrid] will retire the robes of Potter’s lovable giant comrade to take up the role of Lord Dingwall in Pixar’s upcoming “Brave,” alongside Potter co-star Emma Thompson (Prof. Sybil Trelawney, the seemingly absent-minded Divinations professor).

Harry Potter’s beau Bonnie Wright [Ginny Weasley] will be breaking from the Weasley family and hitting the books with the upcoming film “The Philosophers,” about a Jakarta international high school philosophy experiment. Wright is moving into her third year studying film and television in London.

Additionally, J. K. Rowling has been quoted:

"I'm writing, and I've done quite a lot since finishing Harry Potter," she said at the "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" premiere to MTV News. "I think I always felt I didn't want to publish again until the last film was out because Potter has been such a huge thing in my life,” she told BBC News. “I've been writing hard ever since I finished writing Hallows, so I've got a lot of stuff and I suppose it's a question of deciding which one comes out first. But I will publish again. In a sense it's a beginning for me as well as an end."

Well then, JK pretty much just said “no more Harry Potter”. I know she said she might make the Encyclopdia, but she might just be putting that into Pottermore. We’ll see, I guess!

I’m sure going to miss ‘Hagrid’!!! I just can’t look at Robbie Coltrane now as anyone else…I know it’s a bit mad, but….he’s HAGRID!

@HProx101, Snape did cast the doe patronus in the Pensieve memories – it was quite clear. You see Snape casting a doe, and shortly afterwards you see Harry going towards the doe patronus in the wood. But you are right, we didn’t find out that it was he who thought of the 7 Potters (and hence of course the reason why he’s apparently betraying Harry at the start of DH1). But I think perhaps they didn’t want to get into the whole business of Dumbledore’s portrait telling him what to do. I think it would have detracted from the mood – in the film. Similarly with the wand-repairing thing. For somebody who has just been watching the films, the nature of Harry’s wand has not been built up to be that big a deal – indeed we have seen him being apparently quite happy with Draco’s old one. And Ollivander’s still around to make him another nice one if he so wishes. In the film. We still have the books!

We all knew she was writing because of her twitter but it’s a shame it’s not Harry Potter but she is giving us Pottermore and who knows? Maybe we’ll love her new books as much as Harry Potter. I hope she has the fantasy genre in her new books since I love fantasy books and she’s good at writing them :D
