The question for day 25 in the Harry Potter 30 day Challenge is: Nineteen years later. Are you happy with the way it turned out or do you wish something was different?
Well, I guess I am happy with how it turns out but only in the book. I was not at all happy with how they look in the film, they couldn’t possibly have looked that old! Hermione is the only one who looks okay. And why does Neville say he is a crazy about Luna?? I know that’s not in Nineteen Years Later, but anyway.
I would have obviously liked some more details with respect to the characters’ lives. But I like the fact that not a lot has changed, you know. Hogwarts is still there to welcome new witches and wizards. The new generation seems to be as much trouble as the old one (without the obvious death threat looming over their heads). All of them are just as close as they were before, it couldn’t have been any other way.
The series comes a full circle with Harry, Ron and Hermione’s kids going to Hogwarts.
The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.
I love these lines!
So, yes, I am happy with how things turn out nineteen years later 🙂
