Harry Potter is probably one of the greatest movies for teens series in the history of the world. Fans lined up every year to consume both the book sand the movies and the momentum has never stopped. JK Rowling has catapulted into the most famous author in the world and her fans are clamoring over every word she has ever written. This has led to an immense amount of fan theories being produced. Much like books like Game of Thrones such as ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ or ‘Lord of the Rings’, similar to Harry Potter, fans never stop pouring over the text. Today we are going to look at a few fan theories that will leave you scratching your head and wondering, “Wow — could that be true?!”
- The Mystery of the Hogwarts Class Size
In Harry Potter’s first year at Hogwarts it is revealed that there are only 10 Gryffindor students. Fans around the world immediately began to wonder, how could such a large castle, and one of the few magical schools on the planet, be so empty? Well, fans quickly realized that Harry Potter’s class (born in the late ’70s and early ’80s) would have been timed out with the peak of Voldemort’s power. Fans quickly theorized that a baby drought caused by war would be the reason. Interesting, eh?
If you recall the books and the films then you’ll know Neville is something of a magical miscreant. He’s terrible at magic — but it isn’t really his fault! The wand chooses the wizard, after all, and Neville was using a family hand-me-down. As soon as Neville took his own wand he was able to start dealing magic better than ever. Definitely one of the more unique Harry Potter theory texts I’ve read.
