Harry Potter fan site SnitchSeeker provided the transcripts of the excerpts from the interview, below, in which she discusses the upcoming Potter attractions, including the stage play announced in 2013.

BFBS Radio: We will be seeing more of Harry Potter?
JK Rowling:
Not of Harry Potter exactly. I mean, I have no plans to write more Harry Potter books, though it’s constantly being rumored that I have. I’m afraid those rumors are, at the moment, false. But there are other things happening. For example, I’m currently working on a film script for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – which is very much part of Harry’s world, which is a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying doing that. And there will be a Harry Potter play. So yes, there’s certainly more for fans to look forward to.

BFBS Radio: Have you thought about the name at this stage or not?
JK Rowling:
No, I haven’t. No.

BFBS Radio: So it could be anything?
JK Rowling:
Not quite anything. There are a couple of names are being mooted but I’m not allowed to say what they are.

Relatedly, SnitchSeeker revealed that J.K. Rowling’s agent, Neil Blair, spoke exclusively to the site at the launch for the Hogwarts Express expansion at the Studio Tour, saying that the play will open sometime to the public in summer 2016.
