Recently J.K. Rowling talked to Meredith Veira on "TODAY" in her first interview since the release of her seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to Rowling, she left the epilogue purposely vague, though in the interview she revealed details left out of the epilogue that many readers were dying to know.
Of course, Rowling realizes that no amount of information she supplies (even, perhaps, "a Harry Potter encyclopedia") will be enough to satisfy the most devoted fans. "I'm dealing with a level of obsession in some of my fans that will not rest until they know the middle names of Harry’s great-great-grandparents,” she said. Not that this bothers her, of course: "I love it,” she said. "I'm all for that."
I won't post all the information here, but for a few tidbits of what she said in the interview (spoiler alert for those who haven't finished Deathly Hallows),
- Rowling expounds on what becomes of Harry, Ron and Hermione, including family stuff and information about their occupations.
- She gives her thoughts on Luna Lovegood's future.
- She reveals the fate of Hogwarts.
