Though the last Harry Potter book came out in 2007 and the last film in 2011, the wizarding universe is still very much alive. J.K. Rowling will release a new Harry Potter short story on Oct. 31.
Mashable reports that arguably one of the most hated characters in the Harry Potter universe will be the subject of the new story, appropriately making its debut this Halloween. As usual, the story will be published on Pottermore.
The new story will be 1,700 words, written in first-person from Umbridge's perspective. It will reportedly divulge some of her back story, provide new details and offer reflections on the only character other than Voldemort who actually scarred Harry Potter. Few will forget her use of the infamous blood quill on the titular hero.
This year has been a busy one for J.K. Rowling on multiple fronts. She has already released two Harry Potter short stories this year — one details the life of a 33-year-old Harry, and the other about Celistina Warbeck, the singing sorceress.
Rowling has also been busy writing the film version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, set for a 2016 release date and directed by David Yates.
And that will only be the start of Rowling's involvement in the film world, as Warner Bros. recently confirmed that there will be two more Harry Potter spin-off films slated for 2018 and 2020.
