Harry Potter VII title "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

[center]Book Seven:[/center]
[center]Known Information[/center]
Much of the following information has been gathered from interviews, web chats, and conversations with Harry Potter author, JK Rowling. Through analysing events in past books, and assuming past trends will continue in book seven, we've tried to piece together an image of what the book may hold in store for us. Any information that we have omitted from this page is material that we judge to be purely speculative, and should be taken with a grain of salt. If you'd like to comment on any of the below facts, feel free to drop us a line.
Jo's Latest Comments
JK Rowling appeared on the UK afternoon talk show Richard and Judy on June 26, 2006. She revealed several book seven facts during the interview, including: Jo is well into writing Book 7 at this time; she has slightly altered the final chapter, which she originally wrote in 1990: two more people die and one person has been reprieved; Jo regrets writing several minor plot details in previous books; they have boxed her in, forcing her to tie up any loose ends.

Year Seven
At the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, we learned that Harry's sole intention was to hunt down the remaining Horcruxes, rather than to return to Hogwarts for a final year at school (that is, if Hogwarts is open). If that trend turns out to be true in book seven, it is likely that Harry will return to the Dursleys one last time, before taking a visit Godric's Hollow and attending the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour in July. When Harry will turns 17, he'll be eligible to obtain an Apparation license. If he attends Hogwarts, Harry will take his NEWT tests at the end of the school year. The events of book seven will take place in 1997 and 1998.

Horcrux Hunt
Harry made it clear in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that his single vision was to destroy the remaining Horcruxes (after a visit to Godric's Hollow). From what we know, the remaining Horcruxes will include Salazar Slytherin's locket (rumoured to have been in Grimmauld Place)and three unknown objects. These objects may include Helga Hufflepuff's cup, stolen by Voldemort, an unknown item belonging to either Godric Gryffindor or Rowena Ravenclaw, and Nagini, Voldemort's snake. Marvolo Gaunt's ring and Tom Riddle's diary have both been destroyed, the ring during book six, and the diary during book two.

A Two Part Book
JK Rowling has made it clear that book six and book seven are, in essence, a two-part book. The style and tone of book six will likely continue into book seven, and the book's main focus will likely be the growing war - as was shown in book six. On the subject of death, JKR stated, "there are deaths - more deaths coming." With this in mind, we can assume Harry will suffer yet more heartache in his final year. As a climax to the series, Harry will need to face Voldemort in a one-on-one confrontation, where, as the prophecy states, one must die for the other to survive. Of course, for Voldemort to die, Harry must succeed on his 'Horcrux Hunt'.

Quidditch, or a Lack Thereof
Rowling has stated that there will be no Quidditch in book seven, and that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was the last time the reader would see a game taking place. This leans towards the theory, as it stands, that Harry will not return to Hogwarts in book seven. However, this could simply be a coincidence.

The Final Chapter
A few years ago, JK Rowling revealed that the final word of book seven would be 'scar'. As of July 2005 (source: interview with fan site representatives), this hadn't changed. Jo has noted in multiple interviews that she has finished the last chapter of the novel, which will serve as a means of explaining the outcomes of the remaining characters after their final year. In the interest of keen must-find-out-the-ending Muggles, the chapter is no longer kept in Jo's house.

Information Revealed by JK Rowling
A number of interesting tidbits relating to book seven have been revealed by JK Rowling herself. According to Jo, we will learn something major about Lily Potter. Will we also learn more about Peter Pettigrew; his whereabouts, and what he's been up to. More deaths will occur in book seven, and we'll find out more about who was present at Godric's Hollow the night James and Lily Potter were murdered.
