Social Media Roundup: Anyone for Cricket?

Welcome back to another edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! Catch up with some of your favorite Wizarding World stars as they celebrate the excitement of new books, TV shows, and movies, as well as return to old favorites. Plus, who is a Gryffindor in Slytherin robes? (And no, it’s not Tom Felton!)

First up, congratulations to Evanna Lynch, who has begun a tour for her book, The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting: The Tragedy and the Glory of Growing Up. Lynch attended a book launch that was both held in person and streamed online for fans.

She also shared something that will be familiar to most, if not all, pet owners. Is it possible to keep your animal friends off the bed?

Bonnie and Evanna are not the only Wizarding World alumni celebrating newly released or upcoming projects. Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) shared that his feature film Mass is now showing in theaters across America.

 

 

Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange) deleted all of her previous Instagram posts and replaced them with a photo of herself as Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman) in the upcoming superhero movie The Batman.

Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick/Griphook) celebrated the release of his new animated series, Moley, which premiered on Boomerang on October 4. The first episode costarred his son, Harrison, who also made a cameo in Harry Potter in the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

 

 

Also voicing a character in an animated series is Katie Leung (Cho Chang), who will be voicing Caitlyn in Arcane, a show set in the League of Legends universe.

But it’s not just all things new that Wizarding World alumni have been celebrating these past few weeks.

It was an emotional night for the cast and crew of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London as they returned to the stage in front of an audience after “577 days, 19 months” of suspended performances due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While many Potter fans will already know that Felton’s true Hogwarts House is Gryffindor, we were surprised to learn that he is not the only Gryffindor in Slytherin robes. Josh Herdman (Gregory Goyle) revealed in a comment on Felton’s post that he is also a lion at heart!

Also sharing a return with his followers was Matthew Lewis, whose character Hugh Hulton returned for a game of cricket in the TV series All Creatures Great and Small.

We couldn’t agree more!

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"!
