UPDATED: J.K. Rowling Writes About Older Harry in Pottermore Update
Over the past few months, J.K. Rowling has been regularly posting Quidditch World Cup updates on Pottermore. With the Daily Prophet match reports being written by Ginny Potter, we have had a glimpse into the future of Harry and the wizarding world after the books ended.
But now, it has been revealed that J.K. Rowling will today upload a piece by Rita Skeeter that includes a real glimpse into the world of Harry and his friends.
The Bookseller reports how Harry is described in the piece:
Harry, now turning 34, has ‘threads of silver’ in his black hair and also sports a mysterious cut over his cheekbone, which Skeeter deduces has been inflicted as part of his top-secret career as an Auror, a specialist officer trained to apprehend evil wizards.
The career of his friend Ron Weasley, whose ‘famous ginger hair appears to be thinning slightly’, is also examined by Skeeter. Their wives Ginny and Hermione, their children, and their friends, Luna Lovegood and Neville Longbottom, are all featured in the article.
Despite this piece, however, J.K. Rowling has “‘no plans’ to write any further stories about the older Harry.”
The piece is now available to read on Pottermore. The story appears in the Daily Prophet section as part of the gossip column, written by Rita Skeeter herself. Containing typical Rita Skeeter speculations about the state of the trio, their lives, and those around them, as well as revealing that she will be publishing a biography about Dumbledore’s Army, the piece gives us a glimpse into Harry’s world.
