Draco's birthday and harry potter's son keep J K Rowling on Twitter

J.K. Rowling confirmed a fan June 5 in their celebration of the character Draco Malfoy's birthday. She even let slip his age.



At the ripe, old age of 35, Draco can now officially be elected the President of the United States. Except for the fact that he was probably born in England. Or in the Wizarding World. Or whatever.

But if his parents took a portkey to America for the birth of their son and he was naturalized in the colonies, he could still make a run for it.

Rowling didn't stop there.

She amazingly took on a fan who doubted the legitimacy of Harry's naming his son after Serverus Snape.



What a basic fan complaint. Why do you engage with this J.K.? Don't you have things to do? Where are your children?

J.K. Rowling created a play for Harry Potter fans dying to know what happens next to everyone's favorite wizarding trio. 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is set to take place 19 years after the last Harry Potter book. According to the play's website:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.


Now, even if you can't make it to see the play performed, you can read it all in one sitting if you want. Pottermore just announced that the script will be published on July 31st.

JK Rowling's trying to help you get cultured, y'all! Coming soon to a theater (not the movie kind) near you (well, in London) is a brand new Harry Potter play called Cursed Child. JK didn't offer any plot details, but who are we kidding; if it's Harry Potter related, we're in.



Working alongside JK on this project are Tony award winning director John Tiffany (Once) and screenwriter/playright Jack Thorne (Skins, Cast-offs, The Scouting Book for Boys). She's said the play won't be a prequel, but as for what the Cursed Child actually is, we'll have to wait and see.

In other Harry Potter news that will probably make you feel old, JK Rowling reminded us that the first Harry Potter novel was published EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO. Do you remember where you were when the wizarding world of Harry Potter first came to be?

After Harry Potter author and resident Twitter Goddess JK Rowling tweeted a message of love and admiration for Ireland's recent gay marriage vote outcome by proposing a marriage between Dumbledore and Gandalf, the Westboro Baptist Church (regarded as the resident cesspool of humanity) challenged her fantastic meme by saying they'd picket any such union:



Rowling shut them down deftly, but one twitter user suggested that may not have been the right thing to do:



JK rebutted by saying the WBC wasn't what was important, but rather her show of support for those who need it:



You go, JK Rowling!

If I had a dollar for every time I saw a "I didn't get my letter from Hogwarts" joke, I'd probably have as much money as JK Rowling, who apparently now has the luxury of spending her days responding to fans on Twitter.  



The author's latest entry into the JK Rowling Twitter Hall of Fame (seriously, she's basically the president of the great nation of Twitter at this point) reminds you that even if your letter didn't arrive by owl, you definitely went to Hogwarts.  So wipe those tears from your eyes and let the books be your Hogwarts Express.

Have you heard? In a recent interview with Wonderland magazine, JK Rowling said she regrets putting Hermione and Ron together in the end:

I wrote the Hermione-Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That's how it was conceived, really.

For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.

I know, I'm sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I'm absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility.

Does this change your ship? Who do you ship with Hermione Granger?

Who do you ship?

JK Rowling spent her day on Twitter congratulating parents of Harry Potter-themed children. Meet Hermione, who was named for the character in Rowling's magnum opus, and Sophia, whose mother read HP while she was pregnant, which probably was not the cause of Sophia's facial birthmark, but hey, magic happens.

Written by JK Rowling herself and set 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter series (insert broken sobs here), the movie adaptation of Fantastic Beasts will be an original story inspired by the Potterverse textbook of the same name. In a press release from Warner Bros, Rowling said,

It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of 'Fantastic Beasts,' realized by another writer was difficult. Having lived for so long in my fictional universe, I feel very protective of it and I already knew a lot about Newt. As hard-core Harry Potter fans will know, I liked him so much that I even married his grandson, Rolf, to one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter series, Luna Lovegood.

As I considered Warners' proposal, an idea took shape that I couldn't dislodge. That is how I ended up pitching my own idea for a film to Warner Bros.

Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway.


Fantastic Beasts is also slated to be developed into other media, including a video game.

JK Rowling's latest entry into the saga of everyone's favorite wizard, a play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, takes place 19 years after we last left The Boy Who Lived. According to the newly released synopsis, things aren't totally happily ever after for Harry and his family:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

The play is being presented in two parts, which Rowling assures will make sense once you've seen it: "The story only exists because the right group of people came together with a brilliant idea about how to present Harry Potter on stage. I’m confident that when audiences see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child they will understand why we chose to tell this story in this way."

Hop on the Hogwarts Express to feels-town, because according to author JK Rowling, today would be Harry and Ginny's son, James S Potter's first day at Hogwarts.



I can't control them; it's too sweet! If you're also headed off to Hogwarts today, give him a shout:



Er, or maybe don't. And if you're unlucky enough to be headed back to muggle school today, remember this:



Good luck out there.

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.
