Harry Potter author JK Rowling says she has written lots of new material, but has been keeping it under wraps until the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

JK Rowling said that she has created a lot of new work since the final book in the Harry Potter series was released in 2007, telling MTV News: "I'm writing, and I've done quite a lot since finishing Harry Potter.

"[But] I also felt I wanted the last film out of the way before I made any moves on the publishing front."

"Harry is so huge and I suppose my involvement with the world has still been quite intense. This feels like a new beginning to me."

Meanwhile, Emma Watson revealed she is ready to move on from her Harry Potter role as Hermione Granger.

Watson told The Mirror: "Not a single second of the day was in my power. I was told what time I'd get picked up, what time I could eat and when I could go to the bathroom.

"I have spent more of my life being someone else than I have being myself. I've always had a strong sense of who I am and what I want, but I do need to spend more time figuring that out."
