Did you know it’s been seven years since the last Harry Potter book?
Yep. That makes us feel old.
Since then, rumours of a spin off have been swirling – and it’s become abundantly clear JK Rowling isn’t ready to hang up her magical boots just yet.
So, without further ado, we announce to you that 49-year-old Rowling is releasing a 1700 word spin off tale off the back of Hogwart’s evil professor Delores Umbridge.
“Umbridge is not only one of the most malicious Potter characters, she is the only person other than Lord Voldemort to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry,” Rowling wrote on Pottermore.com, her website.
“The new exclusive J.K. Rowling content provides a rich, 1,700-word back story about Umbridge’s life filled with many new details, as well as Rowling’s revealing first-person thoughts and reflections about the character.”
The story will be released…
ON HALLOWEEN! So we don’t even need to wait THAT long. Hurray!
