Happy Birthday, Harry + Jo!
The first seven books of the series gave us all the story we needed. Or did they? With the additions of Pottermore, Twitter, The Cursed Child, and Fantastic Beasts, JK Rowling has many outlets to share more information about her universe. But does it all “count?”
What is Canon?
Is canon anything that comes from JK Rowling? Is it anything that was approved by JK Rowling? Books vs movies? First 7 or everything afterward? I’m joined by Elayna of SpeakBeasty and Paul of Blokebusters. We discuss our feelings about this and our thoughts on the new elements introduced by The Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts.
