Today is a sad day for many Harry Potter fans. As after eight films, seven books, and theme parks filled with fans ready to pay anything to get a glimpse of Harry’s magical world – the story has officially ended.

Speaking to the press during the public premiere of Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling announced that Harry and his adventures have come to an end. She broke the news by explaining how Harry “goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done.” She further wanted to give reasoning for the decision and implied that “This is the next generation, you know. So, I’m thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now.”

This makes many fans, including me, depressed. As Harry Potter created many great memories for millions of people around the globe, it was basically what many of us grew up with. But if you’re sobbing, I’d recommend doing it while reading Pottermore and trying to calm down your hunger for the magical world. And remember, Fantastic Beasts, premieres this November, introducing us to magic in America. Surely, it won’t be as good as Harry, but there surely is hope.
