JK Rowling is set to halve the number of Hogwarts houses in the upcoming HBO adaptation of her beloved children's classic.
The controversial author stated that more than two houses felt gratuitous, and that Slytherin and Gryffindor would suffice for categorizing 11 year olds, otherwise things would get confusing. "You are fundamentally either a Gryffindor or a Slytherin. Good or Bad. Snake or Lion."
Rowling is also rumoured to omit a pivotal scene from her first novel in which Harry begs to be placed in Gryffindor despite the Sorting Hat classifying him as a Slytherin, stating that: "To place a Slytherin in Gryffindor simply because he feels like a Gryffindor throws the common room doors open for any and all Slytherins who wish to come inside. Feeling "brave" and wearing red does not a Gryffindor make, and to suggest so undermines the lived experience of Gryffindors everywhere."
Transfiguration is also to be vetoed from the Hogwarts curriculum.
