When Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: ​​Return to Hogwarts streamed on HBO Max on January 1, there was one notable missing member of the creative team: JK Rowling, the writer of the novels on which the film series was based. However, according to a new interview with Rowling, she wasn’t off the special — it was her choice not to participate. Tl;dr: they didn’t fire her, she quit.

Or, more specifically, when asked why she didn’t appear, on yesterday’s (August 29) episode of The Graham Norton Radio Show PodcastRowling explained that she felt she didn’t need to do the special because it was more about the movies than the books.

“Yeah, I was asked to do that and I decided I didn’t want to do it,” Rowling said, as reported by CNN. “I thought it was more about the movies than the books, you know, rightly so. I mean, that’s what the anniversary was about.”

To paraphrase a member of The Brady Bunch: Sure, Jo.

For those of you who have been living under a willow tree, Rowling has come under fire in recent years for several – some would say non-stop – anti-transitions, which she has repeatedly tried to paint as the “I’m just saying” type. tweets and essays. Members of the Harry Potter cast have spoken out publicly about her statements, including Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Harry himself, Daniel Radcliffe, who essay with The Trevor Project, stating that “transgender women are women.”

Remarkably, in the special, Rowling was featured in archival footage from 2019, but did not appear in new sequences that reunited the cast and crew 20 years later. On the other hand, the author did attend the world premiere of the third Fantastic Beasts film (for which she wrote the script), and recently released a new novel under her pseudonym, Robert Galbraith, which allegedly describes a YouTube creator who has been convicted of anti-transactions.

Despite the uncanny similarities to Rowling herself, the author swears it’s all coincidence.

“I had written the book before certain things happened to me online,” Rowling also told Norton, as reported by rolling stone. “I said to my husband, ‘I think everyone will see this as a reaction to what happened to me,’ but it really wasn’t. The first draft of the book was ready by the time certain things happened .”

You might start to think that Rowling is good at creating fictional stories – at least when it comes to her own life.
