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.
