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.

Sure, August: Osage County has an A-list cast. But is the film itself as Oscar-worthy as its bevy of stars? Or a camp classic-to-be filled with quotable insults and dinner-table tirades?
Plus: PEOPLE's film critic gives you the rundown on The Invisible Woman and Jessica Biel's latest attempt at a stirring drama.
Here's what to see and what to skip at the movies:

You can't keep a glam girl down.
In a red-carpet appearance in China's Shandong province on Saturday, Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out at a star-studded event to announce the launch of a new $5 billion film studio there, as well as plans by AMC Entertainment to host an annual Chinese film festival. (AMC was purchased by China's Wanda group in 2012.)
Other A-listers in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
It was the actress's first public appearance since PEOPLE revealed her separation from her husband of nearly 13 years, actor Michael Douglas, in late August.

At the very least, The Impossible will make you want to grab your loved ones and never let them go. It could also turn a sensitive viewer – and who isn't, in these troubling days? – into a ball of anxiety.
The movie (in theaters now) stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and tells the true story of the Belon family, who were on a Christmas vacation in Thailand when they were torn apart by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that claimed more than 200,000 souls.

Don't mess with Gina!
That's the lesson Gina Carano's costars learned while they were filming Steven Soderbergh's Haywire. After all, Carano isn't just another new face in a Hollywood action thriller. She's a former mixed martial arts star, who is making her movie debut in Soderbergh's latest flick, which opens Friday.
"I got to be physical with some of the hottest guys in Hollywood," Carano, who tussles with Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender in the film, told PEOPLE at the BlackBerry-sponsored Cinema Society screening this week.

Who can hold a candle to Elton John?
The singer's husband David Furnish recently revealed that they've started work on Rocketman, a movie about John's "very extraordinary and unique life," he tells Entertainment Weekly.
While Scottish actor James McAvoy is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Sir Elton, we've got some other ideas for the role – especially when it comes to slipping in to John's glamorous (and spangly) '70s wardrobe.
On our list: comic actor David Cross (of Arrested Development); The League's Paul Scheer, who more than bares a passing resemblance to the '70s-era star; Mike Myers, who, apart from being a comedy star, is musically-inclined; and Scottish star Ewan McGregor who's already posed as a glam rocker in Todd Haynes's Velvet Goldmine.

When Ewan McGregor first signed on to star in his new film Beginners, he told director Mike Mills that he wanted to be involved in choosing his co-star – the canine one.
The actor, who hadn't had a dog since he was young, offered to rescue a dog to play the part of his character's pet. His motive? McGregor wanted to keep the dog after the movie wrapped.

Jim Carrey says the kissing scenes in his latest film, I Love You Phillip Morris, had at least one important thing going for them: Major chemistry.
"I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser," Carrey, 48, tells Parade of his smooches with costar Ewan McGregor.
That's not to say Carrey – who plays an incarcerated man who falls in love with a fellow inmate – wasn't warned about potential problems with kissing a man.
