J.K. Rowling Releases Brand-New Harry Potter Story

By  | 

While Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them was enough to quench Potterheads’ HP needs slightly, the latest Harry Potter news is about 1 million times more epic. J.K. Rowling just released a short story about a Hogwarts reunion, written some years into the future! Yes, we’re being 100 percent Sirius. Pun intended.

If you remember the last scene of the Deathly Hallows film (which you obviously do!), an older Harry, Ron and Hermione see their children off as they venture to the magical school. Rowling’s latest literary creation seemingly picks up not too long after, as Harry is described to have “threads of silver” in his hair. The story is written as a gossip column from Rita Skeeter’s point of view, as she is a journalist for the Daily Prophet.



Rowling goes into detail about what our favorite characters have been up to over the past years, including their jobs, their relationships and, of course, their appearances. While it seems they all look virtually the same as we remember, Ron’s hair is “thinning slightly” and Harry has a “top secret” cut on his cheek thanks to his dangerous evil-fighting career.

Fans were also given updates about Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood, as well as introduced to some new witches and wizards in the Hogwarts community.

While the short story is no where near as detailed and satisfying as another HP book, we’ll take what we can get at this point!
