10 Harry Potter Fan Theories That Will Ruin Your Childhood

Thanks to the hype around the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Harry Potter universe is very active these days. So we decided to take a look back at the original stories and investigate some of the theories that surround many of the characters and plot points in Wizarding World. Some of them will honestly break you, like the possible reveal on how Tom Riddle, A.K.A. Voldemort finalized his creation of the Horcruxes to why Neville was never able to perform magic as well as his peers in school. There’s one soul crushing theory about Harry and mental illness as well that would be the biggest fear for any diehard Potter fan. There’s a possible revelation that Professor Snape is in fact alive and well after the events of the Deathly Hallows and that Dumbledore’s death was predicted way back in the third book! Speaking of Dumbledore, we have a lot of theories about him, including that he’s in fact Ron Weasley and that thanks to the story of the three brothers, Dumbledore is actually a representation of Death-or at least the master of it. Then there’s more wacky theories that seem to make a whole bunch of weird sense. For instance, Harry Potter is in fact King Arthur and the reason why Dumbledore hired someone like Lockhart to teach at Hogwarts. There’s a chilling theory about the small class sizes at Hogwarts and a hilarious mashup theory about George Weasley and Willy WOnka!
