With Harry Potter at the top of the Google charts again, thanks to the premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at London's Palace Theatre, it looks like wizard fever is starting up again!
But, did it ever really stop?
What better way to cure that fever (besides watching all the 'best of...' videos on YouTube) than to revisit the gang, and see what everyone's been up to since the movies and books ended?
Here are 19 things that Harry Potter and his friends have been up to the past few years!
1. Harry no longer speaks Parseltongue; he lost that ability when Voldemort was defeated.
2. Viktor Krum found love back home, and is most likely enjoying life in Bulgaria.
3. The Malfoys escaped the fate of the other Death Eaters, who are either all dead or in Azkaban prison . Harry and Draco never did become friends per se, but have come to an understanding of sorts with each other. We'll take it!
Acquaintances at last:
4. Draco turned out to be one of those apples that fell pretty far from the tree. He has a son Scorpius whom he loves dearly, and hopes to instill better values and morals in his son than Lucius did for him.
5. An 88 year old Hagrid still works at Hogwarts, but never married.
6. Even though his kids dread it as much as he did when he was growing up, Harry takes his family to visit Dudley's on occasion.
The deleted scene we all wish they wouldn't have deleted-
7. Kingsley Shacklebolt is now the Minister of Magic.
8. The Order of the Phoenix is no more.
9. Out of her, Harry and Ron, Hermione was the only one to complete her seventh year at Hogwarts.
10. Neville Longbottom is the Herbology professor at Hogwarts.
11. Even though he's said he'll never become the Headmaster of Hogwarts, Harry is still the head of the Auror Office, and has been since 2007.
12. Before he became an auror, Ron worked alongside his brother George in Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes.
13. After the war ended, Hermione went straight to Australia to find her parents, and restore their memories.
14. Harry had a mission after the war also; it was to see to it that everyone know that Snape died a hero. He also visits Hogwarts from time to time to give lecturs about Defense Against the Dark Arts.
15. Hermione is now the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and was responsible for doing away with pro pure-blood laws.
16. All members of Dumbledore’s Army still have their coins. Neville impressed his students once by showing them his coin!
17. Ginny loved her some Quidditch! After retiring from professional Quidditch, she took a job with the Daily Prophet as their senior Quidditch correspondent.
18. Luna Lovegood married Rolf Scamander, and has twin boys with him, Lorcan and Lysander. She and Rolf travel the world, looking for fantastic beasts!
19. George Weasley and Angelina Johnson married and had 2 children, Fred and Roxanne.
