Celebrating everything J.K. Rowling

Happy 50th birthday, J.K. Rowling – you’re awesome

Today, J.K. Rowling turns the magical age of 50. It’s also, weirdly, Harry’s birthday – so all the more reason to celebrate.

Here’s a few of our favourite tweets from the UK’s favourite author, reminding us that she’s one of us.

She's got real goals beyond HP

And, when she confirmed what we’ve all been wondering for years

Still to come…

But, Jo isn’t finished with the Potterverse just yet. Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, set 70 years before Harry sets foot in Hogwarts, is due to hit cinemas in 2016. The first instalment of the trilogy will star Oscar-winner, Eddie Redmayne, as Newt Scamander.

There’s also a new story, (which the author insists isn’t prequel – but it kind of is) coming to the stage next year, entitled Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. Tickets will go on sale in the autumn, and it’s due to debut in London next year.

And, of course all of the magic is available online from your favourite app store to enjoy on your tablet or mobile device. iOS users should head to the App Store and Android users should visit the Google Play Store.
