Even though we have had seven Harry Potter books and eight movies to salivate over, there's nothing stopping us from wanting more from J. K. Rowling's wizarding world.
Thankfully, the authoress has been eager to release new snippets of information about our favorite characters ever since we bid a fine farewell to our favorite series. And let's not forget the epic Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that's heading our way this year:
Yet, even that is not going to prove to be enough. Below are six storylines that we hope J.K. will one day revisit:
1. A Narrative About The Hogwarts Founders
We don't really know a great deal about the lives of the Hogwarts founders, so it would great to gather wider knowledge on the subject. In particular, I would personally love to learn more about the logistics of putting a giant basilisk in the school (by Salazar). How on earth did he do it?
2. The First Wizarding War
The First Wizarding War took place between 1970 and 1981 and is mentioned numerous times in the series, yet I feel that this topic alone could be covered by an entire new book series penned by J.K. In particular, we could learn more about the crucial work of Neville's parents and what it was really like to live in the terror stirred up by Voldemort's first rising.
3. The Marauders
Wouldn't it be fascinating to learn more about the shenanigans that Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black and James Potter got up to while in The Marauders. We know they really had a knack for breaking Hogwarts rules and creating mischief, so their teenage years would be a hilarious discovery.
4. All The Books, From Dumbledore's Perspective
Dumbledore remains one of the most elusive characters of the entire series, so any more information on him would be solid gold. In particular, it would be fascinating to learn the storyline from his perspective, especially considering the fact that when he died, he probably took a lot of secrets to the grave with him.
5. The Other Wizarding Schools
Admittedly, we are introduced to other wizarding schools other than Hogwarts in the fourth book and movie. Yet, Rowling has since revealed that there are in fact 11 in total scattered throughout the world. According to her words on a recent post on Pottermore:
The wizarding populations of most countries choose the option of home schooling. Occasionally, too, the magical community in a given country is tiny or far-flung and correspondence courses have been found a more cost-effective means of educating the young.
Amongst some of the actual schools mentioned though are Mahoutokoro in Japan, Uagadou in an undisclosed mountainous region, Castelobruxo in the Brazilian jungle and Ilermorny on the American East Coast. Read more about each one here.
6. Minerva McGonagall's Backstory
Quite frankly, it's an absolute travesty that we don't know more about the sassiest Professor at Hogwarts.
