Social Media Roundup: A Magical Family Reunion

Welcome back to MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! The Wizarding World alumni have been quite busy on social media in the past two weeks, sharing everything from some particularly magical reunions to important messages promoting justice and equality. 

Tom Felton and Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) certainly got Potter fans excited with a special reunion at one of Tom’s final performances of 2:22 A Ghost Story

Isaacs shared a photo with Tom as well as other snaps in which he posed with posters for the play.

Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) shared another recent special reunion via Instagram, with a photo from a golf event alongside James Phelps (Fred Weasley) and Tom Felton.

Also promoting positive change was Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley), who spoke out via Twitter about a vote by the National Trust to ban the organization’s involvement in LGBTQ+ Pride celebrations. Rankin urged members of the National Trust to vote against the motion.
