JK Rowling Expands Harry Potter With New 'Potter Family' Story

The story of Harry Potter may have ended in 2007, but that doesn't mean author JK Rowling is done with the wizarding world that made her famous.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news that in addition to her ongoing stage and screen projects set amidst the history of Hogwarts, the writer has just unveiled a new short story titled "The Potter Family" diving into the past of the family line on her website Pottermore.com -- part of a full-blown redesign for the digital home of all things Harry.

"The new writing from J.K. Rowling sheds unexpected new light on the origins of the Potter family name, delves into Harry’s ancestry, explains how his grandfather quadrupled the family’s fortune and how the Invisibility Cloak became a family heirloom," the site said in a statement.

Started in 2012 as a homebase for ebook versions of her famous novels, Pottermore has become the exclusive home of new stories set in the world of the books thanks to Rowling's protection of her digital publishing rights.

This isn't the only new Harry media in the works, of course. Aside from writing the screenplay to the incoming film Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, Rowling has a stage play entitled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child set to open in London in 2016.
