J.K. Rowling said no to this Harry Potter musical and we’re so thankful


It might not look like it at times but J.K. Rowling has said no to a lot of potential Harry Potter projects. One of them was a musical and we are so glad she said no.

It feels like everywhere you look right now Harry Potter is there. Whether it be right in front of you or just around the corner, the Wizarding World has affected pretty much everything and anything.

So with that in mind. It’s hard to think that J.K. Rowling said no to what probably been hundreds, maybe thousands, of proposals related to Harry Potter. She definitely did say no though and they weren’t small projects either, she once said no to the idea of a Harry Potter musical by Michael Jackson.

Back in 2015, when J.K. Rowling conducted an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she was asked if she had any concerns about the never-ending growth of the Wizarding World.

J.K. Rowling then revealed that she thinks things could actually be much worse than what they currently are if she hadn’t already put her foot down to some of the growth. She then revealed the Harry Potter musical idea proposed by Micahel Jackson.

Jackson wanted to do a musical for the franchise and had even planned it all out already. However, Rowling decided against the proposal, and we are so thankful she did.

Because sometimes things can be overdone and a Harry Potter musical is one of those things. Can you imagine them trying to sing while casting spells? it wouldn’t work.

Now I know what you’re thinking. We already have a Harry Potter musical in terms of the stage play Puffs. And yes, that is true. But Puffs is a comedy, so it works. Michal Jackson wouldn’t have made the musical a comedy. At least I don’t think he would have anyway.

There is also the controversy surrounding Micahel Jackson as well. Do we want our beloved Wizarding World caught up in all that? No, I don’t think we do. So in this instance, J.K. Rowling made the right decision in saying no.
