Harry Potter

author JK Rowling reveals that the late pop legend Michael Jackson had approached her with plans to turn the series into a stage musical - but his idea was snubbed because the author was not convinced it would be a success.

Rowling's series of books have been brought to life on the big screen and inspired its very own theme park in Orlando, Florida - but Rowling reveals there was one big proposal she rejected, even though it came from the King of Pop himself, reports



"Michael Jackson wanted to do a musical. I said no to a lot of things. For me, I love the films, I love the books, and there's elements that I love around it... like the theme park. But I only wanted to do it because I knew it would be incredible," said Rowling.
