Seven years after the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final installment of the series, the boy wizard is back for more adventure. Only he’s not a boy anymore.
In a new Harry Potter story posted this morning on Pottermore, J.K. Rowling sends Harry, now 34, to the Patagonian Desert for the Quidditch World Cup.
