Harry Potter burning questions

Harry Potter fans could surely pick J.K. Rowling‘s brain for hours, asking the author about why the story went the way it went, how she came up with the ideas, specific plot points. Now they’re asking for information about her latest creation, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Recently, a few fans got through to the author via Twitter and had their Harry Potter burning questions answered. Questions like what happened to the three headed dog, Fluffy, from the first book and movie? How did the Black house, which is in a muggle area, become a magic headquarters? And one linking the second book/movie with the series finale. Read the J.K. Rowling’s answers to Harry Potter burning questions below.

Uproxx pointed out the answers from Rowling’s Twitter feed. First up, the big one.

(If you don’t want to click on the Twitpic for the first question, it is “”How come when Harry gets bitten by the Basilisk in Chamber of Secrets, that doesn’t destory the Horcrux in him?”

I guess Rowling gets that one a lot and, rightfully so. You’d have to imagine when she first wrote Chamber of Secrets, she didn’t know Harry was a horcrux any of that stuff. I think it’s a satisfying answer.

Another question:

In the first book, Fluffy was the three headed dog guarding the Sorcerer’s Stone. He’s mentioned in passing a few times after but we never knew exactly what happened to the massive beast. Now we do.

Last question:

I honestly never thought too much about this but it’s kind of cool to know a bit more about the back story.

In the end, Rowling only answered those three questions but you never know when the author will feel like popping back on again and answering more about her famous franchise.

Rowling’s latest book, The Casual Vacancy, has been turned into a mini-series which will be on HBO in April. She also wrote a screenplay to the Harry Potter spin-off movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will be released November 18, 2016. David Yates is directing.
