#25. Hagrid was still working at Hogwarts by 2017, at 88 years old. He never married, although he had a relationship with a giantess.
How long do giants live? Forever? Because I’d be good with that.
#24. Harry would take his family to visit Dudley’s when they were in the neighborhood (occasions dreaded by James, Albus, and Lily).
Way to teach your kids to be the bigger person, HP.
#23. Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster (“McGonagall was really getting on a bit”) as well as a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. That position is now as safe as the other teaching posts at Hogwarts, since Voldemort’s death broke the jinx that kept a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor from remaining for more than a year.
Also not true! The Cursed Child shows McGonagall still working as Hogwarts’s headmistress – and she hasn’t slowed down at all!
#22. Kingsley Shacklebolt became the Minister of Magic after the Second Wizarding War.
He might have the best name in the entire series.
#21. Harry will not train to be an Animagus; his energies are going to be concentrated elsewhere and he’s not going to have time to do that.
That’s okay. It kind of makes the friendships his father had all the more special.
#20. In the aftermath of the war, the Order was disbanded once and for all.
They probably still have reunions, though, and reminisce about when they were all badasses.
#19. Hermione Granger was the only member of the group who returned to Hogwarts to complete their seventh year. Harry, Ron, and Neville went straight to get training as Aurors.
There was never any argument that she’s the smart one.
#18. After serving as an Auror for a number of years, Neville Longbottom eventually moved on to serve as the Herbology professor at Hogwarts.
Yes! This is true (according to our new canon).
