Harry Potter fans get glimpse of the wizard’s future in new story (Wired UK)


Has it really been seven years since the end of the seventh
Harry Potter book? It has, and as every Harry Potter fan
knows, seven in
the most powerfully magical number
, which might well be why JK
Rowling has chosen this anniversary to release a new short story
about everyone’s favourite wizard. [Pipe down, Gandalf]

The new material has been published on the online portal to
Harry’s world, Pottermore, and takes the form of a Daily Prophet news report
— called “Dumbledore’s army reunited at Quidditch World Cup
final” —
 by the nefarious journawitch Rita Skeeter. As
gossip correspondent, Skeeter updates us on what happens to the boy
who lived in manhood as well as the exploits of other members of
Dumbledore’s Army.

Here’s what we learn about Harry and his chums:

Harry is about to turn 34, is starting to go grey and is a
famous Auror.
He hasn’t swapped his round glasses for wayfarers, even though this
seems to have been a style choice inflicted on him early in life by
the Dursleys. He has got another scar — a mysterious mark over his
right cheekbone.

Ginny has become a journalist, something which Skeeter is
clearly jealous of. Ron is starting to go thin on top and is now
co-managing Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes after leaving the Ministry of
Magic. Hermione is deputy head of the Department of Magical Law
Enforcement and is tipped for an even higher job at the Ministry of

Good old Neville Longbottom has become a very popular teacher of
herbology at Hogwarts and Luna is married and has twin sons. Lupin
and Tonks’ son Teddy is Harry’s sixteen-year-old godson. He is half
werewolf and has bright blue hair. Apparently he spends a lot of
time kissing Bill and Fleur Weasley’s beautiful, blonde daughter

The news piece is framed as a report from the Quidditch World
Cup, which is taking place in Patagonia. If you’re a Harry Potter
fan, it’s a worth a read, but if you’re anything like us, you’ll
wish it went on for another 600 pages.
