The End of an Era (or What Do We Do Now After Over a Decade of Harry Potter?)

By Clogsandtulips @clogsandtulips
The End of an Era (or What Do We Do Now After Over a Decade of Harry Potter?)That's it.
All the films have been made and have come out in movie theaters. All the books have been written.
And J.K. Rowling has made it very clear based on the ending of the 7th book that Harry's adventures are over.
Of course there's still the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando Florida to be visited, the books to be re-read (I've started collecting them in Dutch to try reading them in another language), the movies can be re-watched, and -- though the world at large is not quite sure what it is yet -- Rowling will be unleashing Pottermore to the general public in October.
But there's nothing new.
No books or movies to pre-order. No standing in line well after midnight with hundreds of Hogwarts-clad fans to get the next book or see the first showing of the newest film. No more anticipation. We know how the story ends.
Of course books and franchises like this come and go. There's still Twilight, for instance. But none of them have lasted as long as Harry or meant as much to so many. Harry Potter and his friends have been dominating the world for 14 years. After over a decade, it's difficult to move on.
So, it is with great sorrow that I say goodbye to Harry and Ron and Hermione, Hagrid, Snape and Dumbledore.
Certainly not forever, but at least for now.
