Social Media Roundup: Going Back to Hogwarts

It’s time for another Social Media Roundup! In this week’s edition, wizarding world stars shared their back-to-Hogwarts stories, posted about adorable dogs, weighed in on the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child news, and much, much more.

First up, Emma Watson paid tribute to photographer Peter Lindbergh, who sadly passed away this week. Lindbergh worked with many stars over the years, including Watson, who shared her thoughts on Instagram.



No doubt tired from his travels (check out the last edition of the Social Media Roundup), Tom Felton spent some quality time with his adorable dog, Willow.

Of course, we can’t forget that it was Back to Hogwarts Day on September 1!  Some wizarding world stars made sure to celebrate the day.

Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) shared a message for all the first years starting Hogwarts this year.



Ellie Darcey-Alden (young Lily Potter) took to Twitter to wish Potter fans a happy September 1.



Meanwhile, the London cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child took celebrating to a whole other level. First, they wished their followers a happy Back to Hogwarts Day.



Then they dropped in on unexpecting passengers at King’s Cross station…



…before celebrating with cake at the Lyric Theatre!



And finally, speaking of Cursed Child, Chris Rankin got us all dreaming of yet ANOTHER Harry Potter play.

In response to the news of the play’s logo change, Rankin humorously suggested that the next news from J.K. Rowling would be a theatrical play following the story of Percy Weasley.



And that’s it for this week’s Social Media Roundup. Check back next time to learn what your favorite wizarding world stars are promoting and posting about!

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
