The wizarding world is on fire, and Harry Potter is more popular than ever some five years after the final movie hit theaters. The new stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child just opened for previews in the West End, and later this year we’ll see the first-ever spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. While there is no new Harry Potter book heading our way soon, the script for Cursed Child is being released to the public, and author J.K. Rowling is keeping her universe alive thanks to the ever popular Pottermore website. Now, we have a fun treat which shows some of the actors from the movies getting sorted into various Hogwarts houses.
With so much new stuff coming forward, continually breathing life into this magical realm, it’s no wonder that interest is at an all-time high. With that in mind, some of the most beloved names associated with the franchise have come forward to have a little bit of fun. This includes Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood). They all reunited to find out if they would wind up in the same Hogwarts house as their characters.
In the movies, Ron, Ginny and Neville had all been sorted into Gryffindor house. Luna, the outsider of the group, wound up in Ravenclaw. The real-life foursome used the virtual sorting hat found on the immersive Pottermore site to find out where they would be sorted if thrust into the Harry Potter universe. And some of the results are quite surprising.
Rupert Grint got sorted into Hufflepuff. While he’s okay with this choice, it definitely wasn’t what he, or probably the fans, was expecting. Bonnie Wright landed right back at Gryffindor, and seems pretty happy about it. Like Grint, Matthew Lewis was sorted into Hufflepuff. He claims he’s thrilled, but he doesn’t really look it. Evanna Lynch seems most excited out of the entire group, as she finally gets sorted into Gryffindor, leaving Ravenclaw behind.
Following the group video, there are individual video interviews that show more of these actors answering the questions that landed them in their respected houses. They also answer a few questions about the wizarding world of Harry Potter. It certainly is fun to catch up with these very familiar faces to see how they are doing. And it comes at a time when everyone is talking about that dang Cursed Child! You can check out all of the videos here, and then be sure to check out Pottermore and let us know what house you got sorted into.
