Retro Posts come from the earlier days of blogging. This Retro Post was on a previous blog and imported over to this current one. Albeit not my writing style anymore in the slightest and quite ill-written, I could not let it just be deleted! Therefore it stays, enjoy.
Its been a few years since the wizarding crew of the Harry Potter world defeated Voldemort (in a lackluster final battle) and moved on to get married and have some wizarding kids of their own. Although the book was a satisfying end to the Harry Potter series, the most dissapointing of all seven books was J.K. Rowling’s attempt at an epiloque to tie up the series with a nice little bow.
I was never a fan of the epiloque. I read and reread it, but it still seemed unneccessary and read like something a fangirl would write – especially with the cliche marriages and children names. With the upcoming movies for Deathly Hallows, the epiloque will be in place. Recent pictures were released for the epiloque scenes and they are as dissapointing as the book.
Although the epiloque takes place 19 years after the final battles, the epiloque pictures showcase some badly aged characters. They look significantly older then they actually should be. In the pictures we have Harry, Ron, Draco + son, and a girl that maybe the daughter of Harry and Hermione.
I’m just very dissapointed in the photos. I’ll always be a Harry Potter fan (and I’m very excited about the opening of Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando), but the movies have been losing steam just like the books did.
