#19YearsLater: Harry Potter Fans Live Out Final Book’s Ending

Nagpur: Hundreds of Harry Potter fans descended on King’s Cross train station Friday morning to celebrate the final scene of J.K. Rowling’s multibillion-dollar book and film phenomenon.

The ending of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” sees its main characters send their children off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the place where their own magical exploits began 19 years earlier.

According to the book, the wizardly progeny, including Harry Potter’s young son Albus, get whisked away on the Hogwarts Express from the station’s imaginary Platform 9 ¾ at 11 a.m. on Sept. 1, 2017.

Clad in black cloaks, wizard hats and Hufflepuff scarves, fans from as far away as the U.S., Germany, France and Italy made pilgrimages to the station and paid tribute to the final book’s epilogue — which ends with the words: “All was well.”

Its title captured the imaginations of fans worldwide with #19YearsLater trending on Twitter.

Thanks for reading hope you liked it.
