Yesterday everyone got very excited after J.K. Rowling posted a new Harry Potter short story on her website, Pottermore.

The story revisits Harry, who is now in his thirties, at the Quidditch World Cup final. Despite J.K. Rowling saying she has "no further plans" to write about Harry Potter, everyone was questioning whether the release of the story could lead to a film.

But now Harry Potter himself has shattered our dreams and broken our hearts by saying that he doesn't think there'll be any Harry Potter films set in the future.

Speaking at a press event for the Television Critics Association on Tuesday, Daniel Radcliffe said: "My inclination is to say no. I don’t think it’s a question that’s even – not even hypothetical. As I understand, it’s a very short piece, not of itself worthy of adaptation to film."

He added: "He [Harry Potter] is at least 12 years older than I am now. I don’t think I’ll have to worry about that for a long time."
