J.K. Rowling, the inspired creator of the Harry Potter series has given her loyal fans a little bit more to the Harry Potter story. The author published a 1,500-word short story on her Pottermore website about a Hogwarts School reunion that gives us an idea of what our favorite wizard’s are up to in their middle age. It turns out that Harry Potter is on his way to being a silver fox with some gray in his hair at the age of 34.
Ron Weasley, played in the hit films by Rupert Grint, has aged less well with his ginger hair ‘thinning slightly’.
He is revealed to be co-manager of Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes with his brother George after working for two years at the Ministry of Magic.
His wife Hermione, Harry’s wife Ginny, and their children all feature in the story. The supremely capable Hermione is now Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
Rowling also gives fans a hint of Harry’s new life by describing a mysterious cut over his cheekbone, perhaps related to his membership of a top-secret group of wizards called the Aurors.
The small tale is written as an article by another familiar character in the series, Rita Skeeter, a journalist for the fictional Daily Prophet.
While Rowling has continued to write, her latest work has been more geared towards adult readers, and she has published two crime thrillers under the nom de plume of Robert Galbraith, The Silkworm and The Cuckoo’s Calling. She also published The Casual Vacancy under her given name.
I don’t think I’m the only one who would be ECSTATIC if J.K. Rowling decided to continue the Harry Potter series. I’m literally counting the days till my little muggles are old enough to read the books to. It’s just amazing.
