It has been seven long years since JK Rowling has released a new Harry Potter story. Yesterday on Pottermore.com (the official Harry Potter Universe site) a new short story arrived. Before you head over there to check it out, you must be a member. The cool thing is that Rowling published the story in the form of a column in "The Daily Prophet" by Rita Skeeter. Which can be seen here (again members only). The story takes place with Harry, now in his mid-thirties, visiting the Quidditch World Cup.
Thanks to the Business Insider for supplying us with bullet points:
Harry is now, predictably, a famous Auror (an elite wizard who fights dark wizards).
He's also graying, and he still wears his trademark round glasses.
He has a "nasty cut" on his cheekbone, which is likely a result of his line of work.
Harry's wife, Ginny Weasley, has a job reporting on the Quidditch World Cup for the Daily Prophet.
Ron Weasley left his job as an Auror for the Ministry of Magic to co-manage the joke shop Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes.
Hermione Granger is now the deputy head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and is expected to rise even higher within the Ministry of Magic.
Neville Longbottom teaches Herbology at Hogwarts and his wife Hannah Abbott is a Healer.
Luna Lovegood married the grandson of a "celebrated Magizoologist." They have twin sons.
Charlie Weasley is still an unmarried dragon wrangler.
Percy Weasley is head of the Department of Magical Transportation.
