1. J.K. Rowling has written a new Harry Potter short story for her website, Pottermore.
The story revisits Harry as an adult in his thirties with greying hair while he attends the Quidditch World Cup final. (You’ll need to be signed in to Pottermore to read it at the link above – or you can read it without needing to sign up at Today.com.)
2. The story is written as a newspaper article by gossip journalist character Rita Skeeter.
It follows a series of Quidditch World Cup pieces Rowling has written for Pottermore to coincide with the World Cup in Brazil, which has included match reports and newspaper articles. (In the wizarding world, Brazil are taking on Quidditch powerhouses Bulgaria in the World Cup final in the Patagonian desert.)
3. Naturally, it’s written in Skeeter’s traditional bitchy style.
With plenty of insulting references to the characters’ looks and speculation about the state of their marriages. (It also gives us a load of information about what other characters got up to in the aftermath of the novels.)
