Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a weekly meme created by Uncorked Thoughts that was created to keep Harry Potter moments alive.
This week’s topic:
Favorite new bit of information since the series has been over? From Pottermore or JKR herself.
After doing a lot of research and learning SO MUCH MORE than I realized I have finally chosen my favorite new bit of information since the series ended.
One of my favorite moments in the first Harry Potter book and movie was learning about the chocolate frogs. Nine year old me found it fascinating that one of the best things in the world (chocolate) could be enchanted into something even cooler. During this scene Harry learns about the Chocolate Frogs Card and discovers that the pictures move, earning one of my favorite movie lines from Ron “Well you can’t expect him to hang around all day, can you?”. That scene makes me smile every time because it is the beginning of Harry’s and Ron’s friendship!
Since the series ended, the queen herself shared that after the second Wizarding War the Golden Trio were immortalized and celebrated in the Chocolate Frog Cards! Not only is this fitting because of all the good they’ve done but also because it’s a full circle. Harry and Ron bonded over the chocolate frogs and Hermione appeared only minutes later and now their cards can be the source of bonding for future friends. It sounds lame but I found it incredibly cute and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside (:
