#Hashtag: Harry Potter pronounces adversary’s name wrong all along


Author J.K. Rowling came out to let the public know that we have, in fact, been pronouncing Voldemort wrong all along. Even in the movies Harry Potter and all his friends mis pronounce the name. In fact, the main character’s name is pronounced without the “t” at the end.

Social media has been responsive regarding this new unknown fact about the popular Harry Potter series.

The question I’m asking, however, is how did she forget to mention this somewhat major detail before they produced all the movies? That seems like an important thing to forget about your own book series.
