“Dumbledore’s Army Reunites at Quidditch World Cup Final”

4-Watertowers TracyReaderDad Book Reviews(Catching Up with the Gang)

J.K.Rowling wrote this on her web site, Pottermore.com, giving us an up-to-date look at some of the most famous of the Dumbledore’s Army members.  (FYI…I joined Pottermore and have been placed in Ravenclaw by the Sorting Hat)

Harry, Ginny, Hermione, Ron, Neville, and Luna (my fellow Ravenclaw) are all at the Quidditch World Cup where Rita Skeeter is reporting about their attendance and giving us her skewed version of reality.

Harry is now 34 with some gray in his hair and a new scar on his cheek.  He is still an Auror with the Ministry of Magic.

Ginny is reporting on the World Cup with the Daily Prophet and Rita is jealous that she got this plum assignment.

Hermione is rising rapidly in the Ministry (of course) and is the Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.  Rita dishes some dirt about her flirtations with Harry when they were in Hogwarts.

Ron left the Ministry to join George (who is now wealthy) running the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes joke shop.  His famous red hair is thinning!  He and Hermione are still married.

Neville is now a Herbology teacher at Hogwarts.  He apparently drinks more than he should and is married to Hannah.

Luna (my fellow Ravenclaw) is still “delightfully eccentric” and is married to Rolf Scamander.

J.K.Rowling’s writing of this new Harry Potter adventure is smooth and familiar unlike the “Casual Vacancy” where she struggles mightily (and I am likewise struggling…I am halfway through it but keep putting it down in favor of another book).

Will there be more?  Will there be a new movie?  Time will tell.
