J.K. Rowling is ushering in a new holiday celebration: the 12 days of Harry!
Just in time for Halloween, J.K. Rowling has released her highly anticipated next piece of writing about one of Harry Potter's most wicked villains.
Rowling's Pottermore website published a short essay Friday about Dolores Umbridge, the bossy, villainous witch introduced in the series' fifth book. Umbridge, who was played by Imelda Stanton in the films, was based on Rowling's real-life teacher — someone she did not like -- the author revealed in the essay. As such, "Dolores is one of the characters for whom I feel the purest dislike," she writes.

J.K. Rowling has teamed up with Warner Bros. for a Harry Potter spin-off film series, Deadline reports.
The franchise will be inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and its author Newt Scamander. Rowling will make her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is planned as the first film in a new series featuring magical creatures and characters, some of which will be drawn from her previousHarry Potter texts.
"It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of 'Fantastic Beasts,' realized by another writer was difficult," Rowling said.

Rowling was exposed this week as the real voice behind "Robert Galbraith," an alleged ex-military man who published his first crime novel, The Cuckoo's Calling, earlier this year to much critical acclaim, The Associated Press reports.
