Social Media Roundup: Welcome to 2021!

Welcome back! It is time once again to check in and see what some of the Wizarding World stars have been up to in the latest edition, and first of 2021, of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! During the first two weeks of January, there were New Year messages with hopes for a better year, interesting and fun podcast episodes, new family members welcomed, and health scares.

After the troublesome year that 2020 was, Harry Potter actor Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) acknowledged those struggles. This coming year will be difficult, but remember to wear your masks, look for gratitude, and do what you can to make things better.

 

 

 

Raising his glass, Ron Perlman (Gnarlak) looked forward to better things in the new year.
