J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter
J.K. Rowling is revisiting Hogwarts.
The Harry Potter author published a new story on Pottermore.com Tuesday, offering an update on the lives of Harry, Ginny, Ron and Hermione when they're in their 30s.
The 1,500-word chapter follows the quartet as they attend the Quidditch World Cup together, as told by Daily Prophet gossip columnist Rita Skeeter.

Rita notes that Harry works at the Ministry of Magic and has a few strands of gray in his hair as he's about to turn 34, but still wears his signature round glasses. He also has a cut on his cheek of unknown origin. Ron's hair is thinning and he left his job at the Ministry to co-manage a joke shop with his brothers called Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. Hermione is doing well professionally, working as a deputy at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. And Ginny is a journalist who's been assigned to cover the World Cup final. Rita reports that she and Harry are having some difficulties in their marriage — although maybe that's just wishful thinking on her part.
As far as peripheral characters, the new story reveals that Neville Longbottom teaches herbology at Hogwarts.
This isn't the first time Harry & Co. have been in the news recently. The new Diagon Alley section of Universal Studios' Wizarding World of Harry Potter celebrated its grand opening last month.
