7 books and 8 movies. We've all loved the Harry Potter series since we were young kids and even now we'd probably binge watch all the movies during our weekends. But there are always a certain points you miss out on even when you're big fans of Harry Potter.
Some important details might've missed your attention while you were busy enjoying yourself in the books and movies. So here's a few things you didn't know about your favorite series.
Yes, they're related by blood and not just by Harry being one of the Horcruxes. Their common connection was established by the Peverells. Wizarding families are somehow always connected to each other.
They attended official school only once they were 11. Initially, wizard children couldn't be schooled outside because they had trouble controlling their powers hence homeschooling was the best option.
Harry could only communicate with snakes because he was a horcrux. Voldemort destroyed the horcux inside Harry by himself and since then Harry has lost his ability to speak to snakes.
She was married to Elphinstone Urquart for 3 years and he was killed due to a tentacula bite. The marriage was cut short but she never changed her maiden name.
Although, they caused a lot of trouble, they were never sent to Azkaban after the battle was over. It was believed that in the end, they also helped Harry in their own tested way to win against Voldemort and hence they were saved.
The son of Remus and Tonks wasn't a werewolf like his father but a metamorphmagus like his mother. He was also sorted into Hufflepuff and later became head boy.
They love a good prank and that's probably why they were both born on the 1st of April. Fred was the elder of the two.
By the end of The order of the Phoenix, JKR planned to kill Mr Weasley but went with Sirius instead.
She struggled with depression in her 20s and decided to represent it as a form of Dementors. They were black hooded figures that would suck out all the happiness from a person's soul.
After the battle of Hogwarts, Ginny went ahead to play professional Quidditch by joining the Holyhead Harpies, an all female Quidditch team. Later, she also became a sports correspondent for The Daily Prophet.
Hermione has to wipe their memories before she went out for the battle. But it was revealed later that she modified their memories once again to get her parents back.
The Gryffindor ghost was supposed to have his own theme song, but due to the editorial team, it was cancelled. You can still read the ballad of Nearly Headless Nick online.
Very much like Harry, Dumbledore also saw his family, alive and happy in the Mirror of Erised.
