London, Oct 4, 2010 (Calcutta Tube) ‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. 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 contactmusic.com.
‘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.
