Upcoming Projects for the Harry Potter Cast


Jul 17, 2011

Posted by Mel

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.”

Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: 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!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: YAY she's writing!Avatar ImageHarryLoverAllRound says: Looks like they are moving on to fun stuff. Avatar ImageSproutMdme says: 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!Avatar Imagecrikeyhunter says: why didn't Harry repair his wand in the movie? I'm not letting this go.......Avatar ImageUnknown_Mist says: ya.. i was really mad at that. they also skipped that part where (when harry was looking at Snape's "memories" in the pensieve) snape was the one who did that doe thing and also when snape had that idea of the 7 identical potters.. all that wasnt in the movie either... :( :( Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: @crikeyhunter I was thinking the same thing! And go bonnie!Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: She's writing again? WHOOOORRRAYYY!!!!!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @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!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: YAY she’s writing!Avatar ImageBara says: I hope to hear more cast reports about what they are doing in the future.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Jo is writing again.............. OMG wonder what they might be.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: 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?

Yay she's writing ! She's got loads of fan just waiting to read anything she writes ,mom says she's a fool if she doesn't write more ,I agree!Avatar Imagepurpleleafgirl says: i'll definitely read anything jo publishes!!!Avatar ImageCrazy and Proud says: I'm happy to see that Jo is still writing even if it isn't more Harry Potter books.
