J.K. Rowling says she was invited to participate in the reunion special “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Celebration: Back to Hogwarts” earlier this year, but declined.
the author of “Harry Potter” was on the “Radio Show” podcast by Graham Norton when she said “nobody said not to go” to the meeting, she just decided she didn’t want to attend.
“Yes, I was asked to participate and I decided I didn’t,” she said of the HBO Max special.
“I thought it was more about the movies than the books, you know, quite rightly. I mean, that’s what the birthday was about.”
At the time, it was speculated that Rowling’s absence was due to controversy surrounding views the writer expressed that were criticized by some as transphobic.
the cast members Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Eddie Redmayne made statements in support of the trans community.
The special acknowledged Rowling’s contribution to the film franchise, incorporating material from a 2019 interview.
Rowling told Graham she still has contact with the cast.
“I have. Yes, I have,” she said. “I mean, some more than others, but that’s always been the case. You know some that I knew better than others.”
