JK Rowling to explore Harry Potter's old life

  • Harry Potter went from being in books to the big screen. The popular wizard is now being taken to stage. 

    The story of his early years living as an orphan with his aunt and uncle is still untold and fans will be happy to know that JK Rowling is working on a play, which will explore Potter's life before he went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

    The author will be co-producing the show along with producers Colin Callender and Sonia Friedman. 

    "Over the years I have received countless approaches about turning Harry Potter into a theatrical production, but Sonia and Colin's vision was the only one that really made sense to me, and which had the sensitivity, intensity and intimacy I thought appropriate for bringing Harry's story to the stage," Rowling said.
