Ok, not really but we still haven't give up on our letter arriving by owl.
On Twitter, JK Rowling reminded us all that this year has a special significance - according to the books timeline, Harry's son, James Sirius Potter was off on the train to Hogwarts, nineteen years after Harry, Hermione and Ron.
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— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015
They grow up so fast.
Have just heard that James S Potter has been Sorted (to nobody's surprise) into Gryffindor. Teddy Lupin (Head Boy, Hufflepuff) disappointed.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015
And, of course, Harry Potter fans got a bit emotional at the reminder.
