When J.K. Rowling concluded her Harry Potter saga with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, she concluded with the phrase, “All is well.” The film version of that book would be broken into two parts, and would successfully close the most successful movie franchise in history.
It was thought that would be it for that world, but then Rowling admitted that she was working on a new Harry Potter spin-off trilogy, based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
But, it seems that is not all as Rowling is having a little trouble giving up those characters she invented all those years ago, and who could blame her?
On the author’s Pottermore site, she has published a piece chronicling a reunion of sorts of Harry, Ron and Hermione -- giving us an update on what the crew has been up to. Potter is 34 years old, and all appear to be happy. So, what’s up with our favorite movie trio? And this, of course, is through the voice of Rita Skeeter, the gossip columnist!
They got back together for a little reunion at the Quidditch World Cup and we can see why: Ginny is a sports reporter for the Daily Prophet. Oh, and Harry has a “couple threads of silver” in his hair and has a mysterious new scar over his right cheekbone that joins the iconic one on his forehead. Don’t worry folks, he still wears his round-frame glasses.
He’s busy at work as an Auror, but you won’t get any details on his job as his work is top secret!
Harry catches up with his Bulgarian good friend, Viktor Krum, who is playing on the Bulgarian Quidditch Team at the World Cup.
Now, what about Ron? Well, he did a two-year stint at the Ministry of Magic, but left to work with George and their super successful Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
Hermione, surprise surprise, has done quite well for herself and has shot to the top of the ranks at the Ministry of Magic where she currently holds the position of Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
