JK Rowling is finally breaking her silence on why she didn’t appear in the HBO Max special Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: ​​Return to Hogwarts. The author of the books that spawned the hit movies revealed that her absence from the reunion was simply because it wasn’t something she wanted to do.

“I was asked to take part in it and I decided I didn’t want to do it,” she told host Graham Norton during an appearance on the Virgin Radio UK show, and clarified that she was not excluded from the reunion. “I thought it was more about the movies than the book, rightly so, that’s what the anniversary was about.”
