Social Media Roundup: Celebrating Friends and Family!
Welcome back to another edition of Social Media Roundup! This week, we’re celebrating friends and family. From cast reunions to family reunions to welcoming new members to the family, your favorite wizarding world stars have been celebrating the important relationships in their lives.
Over the first weekend in August, a number of Harry Potter alumni reunited at For the Love of Fantasy, a fan event in Edinburgh, Scotland.
