Christian Bale as Harry Potter? We Fantasy Cast J.K. Rowling's New Story

Originally posted 07/08/2014 03:15PM

In a move more unexpected than Ireland's victory at the Quidditch World Cup, J.K. Rowling has given fans a glimpse of the grown-up boy wizard in a new story posted Tuesday on her Pottermore website.

The short story marks Rowling's first story starring her beloved character since 2007's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, though she has published previous writing about the Harry Potter universe on Pottermore. Fans shouldn't get their hopes up, though – Rowling spokesman Mark Hutchinson said there are "no plans" for a new Potter novel.

The new story takes place at the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, which the mid-30s Harry attends with his old friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

Tom Felton Finds 'Sympathy' for the Dark Characters He Plays

He's long since changed out of his Slytherin robes, but Tom Felton still loves dabbling in the Dark Arts.

The British actor, 26, best known for his role as Harry Potter's nemesis Draco Malfoy in the films, is currently starring as a ruthless Silicon Valley prodigy in TNT's new crime drama, Murder in the First.

"The nice thing about this character is, it's the same as Draco: People instantly see others as good or bad, and realistically people aren't like that at all," Felton told PEOPLE at the VIP and media preview of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios in Orlando on Wednesday.
