Post Harry Potter play planned to open summer 2016, J.K. Rowling says two potential titles

J.K. Rowling revealed that she is still working on the script for the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film in a new interview with Nepal local's BFBS Radio on Friday, while visiting the Asian country this week.

Rowling also admitted that the Harry Potter play, which will take place before his Hogwarts year and on the London stage, is still in the works, and that there are two potential titles for it. The full audio for the interview can be heard in the link below; excerpts are here.

SnitchSeeker spoke to Rowling's agent Neil Blair earlier this week at the Hogwarts Express launch at Warner Bros Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter, and he admitted exclusively that the play will open to the public sometime in summer 2016.

BFBS Radio: We will be seeing more of Harry Potter?
JK Rowling:
Not of Harry Potter exactly. I mean, I have no plans to write more Harry Potter books, though itís constantly being rumored that I have. Iím afraid those rumors are, at the moment, false. But there are other things happening. For example, Iím currently working on a film script for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Ė which is very much part of Harryís world, which is a lot of fun. Iím really enjoying doing that. And there will be a Harry Potter play. So yes, thereís certainly more for fans to look forward to.

BFBS Radio: Have you thought about the name at this stage or not?
JK Rowling:
No, I havenít. No.

BFBS Radio: So it could be anything?
JK Rowling:
Not quite anything. There are a couple of names are being mooted but Iím not allowed to say what they are.

BFBS Radio: What brings you to Nepal? Is it your first time in Nepal?
JK Rowling:
Itís my first time in Nepal. Iím here because one of my oldest and best friends is the British Defence Attache to Nepal, Colonel Sean Harris. So we came to visit him, and I have to say I have absolutely loved being here. Itís a beautiful place.
And by the sound of it, you want to come back again.

Iíd love to come back again. Iíd love to come back to Kathmandu. Unfortunately weíre only here for four days this time, but itís been the most marvelous experience.

Have you had any connection with the armed forces?
JK Rowling:
Well, yes I have. Iíve already met several gurkhas. In fact, I grew up in an area on the English-Welsh border where there was a large army training camp, so Iíve always known quite a lot of soldiers Ė young men. And Sean, of course, has been one of my oldest and best friends for 32 years now. So I know quite a lot about the army.

BFBS Radio: Did you ever envisage how popular it would be at that time?
JK Rowling:
Never. Never for a second. Iíve been asked this often and itís been pointed out to me that in the very first chapter of Philosopherís Stone I say words to the effect of ďHis nameís Harry Potter. Heíll be famous all over the world. Every child in the world will know his name (laughs). And people have said, ďYou KNEW! You clearly knew it.Ē Well, of course, I didnít know it at all. It was an integral part of the story that Harry was famous, but I never dreamt that in reality he would become so famous. Never.

BFBS Radio: The name, Harry Potter, where did it come from?
JK Rowling:
Well, I wanted a really ordinary and traditional name. And I like the fact that there are double consonants in the middle of both words. In fact, there are several real, genuine Harry Potters. One of them was a soldier whoís buried in England. So I often get letters from people saying, ďMy grandfather was called Harry PotterĒ or even, ďI am Harry Potter and I get teased all the time.Ē

BFBS Radio: What was it like seeing the first film when it was completed?
JK Rowling:
It was an extraordinary experience. I had been involved. Iíd been quite heavily involved. The filmmakers asked me a lot of questions - what do things look like and feel like? So it wasnít a complete surprise. But to see the completed film was extraordinary. To see the contents of your own head made visual for everyone else to see is always going to be a bizarre experience for a writer.

BFBS Radio: If you had one wish, what would that be?
JK Rowling:
Well, if I were to be selfish with my wish, I would wish that my children would never come to any harm. I think thatís just a universal motherís wish, isnít it? If I were unselfish with my wish, I would probably wish that the 8 million children currently living in institutions globally would find families or family substitutes. That we would, as a world, unite to ensure that they could be cared for in their homes because we know thatís the best outcome for children.
