Potter Twitter Roundup: Seventeen Years Later

We’ve been pottering around Twitter again to bring you the best updates from the film’s alumni. Here is what we’ve found.

The last of the Diagon Alley preview tweets came trickling in…

whilst the Potter fandom celebrated a BIG anniversary this week.

No, not the birth date of Matt Lewis.

It has been SEVENTEEN YEARS since Harry Potter first made its humble way on to the shelves of British bookstores.

Feeling old? Let Rohan cheer you up!


Whilst we are in a throwback mood, here’s an absolute corker!

Could this be a sign of things to come in a galaxy far, far away?

A heart warming tweet from “our Queen”.

***Competition alert***

Dinner date with Jamie anyone?

Clearly their time together in Orlando wasn’t enough for these two!

Riding a unicorn? In traffic? Only one who has nothing to lose, and everything to gain, would commit such a crime!

And that’s all for the twitter roundup this week. How do you feel about Harry Potter being seventeen years old? Did you first read it all those years ago? Let us know your memories in the comments below.

    How exciting! That was my tweet from Jo that made it into the Twitter RoundUp! She actually had replied to me earlier when I told her I was enjoying The Silkworm. I said she and Robert Galbraith were 2 of my favorite authors. Jo replied, saying “Thank you from both of us, Debbie. Robert can’t answer because he’s forgotten his Twitter password, the fool.” I sincerely can’t believe that Jo replied to me twice! It ranks up there as one of my best days. I have always wanted to thank her for making my daughter love reading.

      That’s incredible. She barely replies to any tweets. How do I get her to reply to me?

    Seventeen years ago I was 3. I started the series in 2005, when I was 10. 🙂 so, 9 years, but I still feel really old.

    I read Harry Potter for the first time in december 2000 when I was 5 years old and had just learned how to read. I can barely believe it’s been so long. I grew up along with Harry, maturing as he did (making people say I was born old, haha) and I can’t imagine ever letting go of his world. No matter what, Harry Potter has been there throughout my life and I daren’t think of what I would have become had I not found this series. Each time I re-read it, I learn something new, which is incredible considering the number of times I’ve read the books (30+ each). Yes, I’m obsessed and that’s alright. Rowling rocks.
