17 Reasons J.K. Rowling Should Seriously Consider Publishing A "Harry Potter" Prequel

There is so much more magic to explore.

Right now, it's an incredibly exciting time to be a part of the Harry Potter fandom. Last year, J.K. Rowling announced that she would be at the helm of a new Harry Potter film based on her books Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, as well as Quidditch Through The Ages. Then, it was revealed that a Harry Potter stage play was in the works, so maybe now Rowling will give in and give fans the prequel they've always wanted? With a fictitious world full of complex characters and many unexplored realms, why not delve back into the world of Harry Potter?

Here are 17 reasons why a Harry Potter prequel would be phenomenal.

1. More details regarding Voldemort's rise to power would be wonderful.

2. Who was Regulus Arcturus Black, really?

3. What exactly caused Bellatrix Lestrange to go mad?

4. Was Dumbledore clairvoyant?

5. More details about the original Order of the Phoenix.

6. Did Snape ever attempt to date anyone besides Lily Potter?

7. Seriously, what is beyond The Veil?

8. A deeper understanding of the whole half-blood/pure blood thing.

9. What are the 12 uses of dragons blood?

10. Is the Sorting Hat just an extension of Godric Gryffindor?

11. By the time Harry is in his third year, he displays a level of wizardry that rivals that of many adults.

12. OK. A Remembrall seriously serves no real purpose, right?

13. More details about Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs during their Hogwarts days.

14. What was everyday life like during the First Wizarding War?

15. What becomes of a Phoenix who's lost its owner?

16. How exactly did Peter Pettigrew disclose the information to Voldemort regarding Lily and James?

17. More information about Squibs and how they are categorized.
