Get ready to return to the magical world of Harry Potter! Series author J.K. Rowling just announced that every day for the next year, she will be releasing a new Potter story, and that beloved character Ron Weasley will die in a different way in every single one!
The announcement appeared yesterday on the front page of Rowling’s Pottermore website along with the first new Potter story, set 15 years after the end of the seventh book, in which Ron dies of a heart attack on Platform 9 ¾ while hundreds of young wizards watch in horror through the window of the Hogwarts Express.
