The thing that has been the catch point for this is that the article was indeed, posted on April 1. Sorry, no digs for that awesome piece of news. Given the time of year this article made a comeback, I of course fell for it (cue immediate heartbreak) only to realize early on I had been duped.
However, this news was followed rather quickly by an announcement that while J.K. Rowling is not continuing the saga of our favorite teenage wizard, she has decided and committed to writing a Potterverse screenplay, Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them!
The movie, based on the textbook from Hogwarts, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has had all of the excitement of the past 15 years re-kindled in people young, small, and famous including the cast of the other 8 movies. Evanna Lynch who played Luna Lovegood posted this on Twitter:
It is just thrilling to think we can all get back into the thing that is so magical and such a literary milestone in our lives. These books changed everything for me when I was 13 (I was late to the game). On top of this most exciting news, we also have the new paperback art release for the 15th anniversary! If you need a break from life, just sit back and relax...let yourself enjoy being a Potterhead again!
