JK Rowling’s “good luck” to Potter’s son on first day at school
The Harry Potter book’s timeline states that today is the day when the famous wizard’s son, James Sirius Potter, starts school at Hogwarts.
And as a reminder to fans, Rowling, who penned the first book in Edinburgh, took to Twitter to ask her fans to wish the fictional boy well.
The writer tweeted: “I’m in Edinburgh, so could somebody at King’s Cross wish James S Potter good luck for me? He’s starting at Hogwarts today. #BackToHogwarts.”
The comment was favourited a staggering 33,000 times only short time after going up online.
Rowling will soon add to her cinematic collection prequel to the Potter books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - a movie about the creatures who inhabit Potter’s world.
Harry Potter’s son was named after his dad James, and godfather Sirius Black. My how mythical time flies!
