How old is Harry Potter in the last movie?
Harry Potter is 17 years old in the seventh and final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This means that he would be the same age as the actor who plays him, Daniel Radcliffe, when the last movie is released.
The ages of the Harry Potter characters in the last movie
The Harry Potter movies span nineteen years, from Harry’s first year at Hogwarts in 1991 to the Battle of Hogwarts in 2010. The characters age along with the actors playing them, so in the last movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, they are all nineteen years old.
How the ages of the Harry Potter characters have changed over the course of the movies
The Harry Potter movies span a complicated timeline, with the characters aging at different rates depending on the magical or non-magical events that take place. In the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Harry is just short of his 34th birthday, which would make him born in 1977. Ron and Hermione, meanwhile, are 33 years old.
The timeline of the Harry Potter movies
The Harry Potter movies are based on the bestselling books by J.K. Rowling, which were published between 1997 and 2007. The first movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was released in 2001. The last movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, was released in 2011.
The movies are not always faithful to the chronology of the books, but they are generally faithful to the timeline of events within the story. The following is a list of the Harry Potter movies in order of release, with their corresponding place within the timeline of events in the story:
-Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) – This movie covers the events of the first book, which take place from September 1991 to June 1992. Harry Potter is 11 years old during this time period.
-Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) – This movie covers the events of the second book, which take place from September 1992 to June 1993. Harry Potter is 12 years old during this time period.
-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) – This movie covers the events of the third book, which take place from September 1993 to June 1994. Harry Potter is 13 years old during this time period.
-Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) – This movie covers the events of the fourth book, which take place from September 1994 to June 1995. Harry Potter is 14 years old during this time period.
-Harry Potter andthe Orderof Phoenix (2007) – This movie covers ԓhe fifth bookʼs events taking place from September 1995 to June 1996; with ԓhe Voldemort subplot beginning in July 1996҅; however thatʼs not shown until nearly halfway through Deathly Hallows Part 1Ԡ(2010). So it can be confusing for some viewers watching order determine age as he turns 15 during Order but 16 by ՕotP filmʼs climaxԠ/ resolution; having skipped his birthday altogether that year because he spent it at Grimmauld Place dealing with Sirius Black҅ murderer Lucius Malfoy trying to steal Hufflepuffʼs cup from Hogwarts , working on finding Voldemortʼs loyalties & getting ready for his final battle against Voldemort in Deathly Hallows Part 2Ԯ After breaking into Gringotts Wizarding Bank , getting bullied by Umbridge & being auror -hunted by Death Eaters; he turns 17 three quarters into Deathly Hallows Part 2 where he finally defeats Lord Voldemort for good҅ making him 17 at end series finale film as well as a graduate student @ Hogwarts School Witchcraft & Wizardry!
How the Harry Potter characters age in the books vs. the movies
In the epilogue of the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series, Harry’s son Albus Severus Potter begins his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This puts Harry’s age at 37 years old. However, in the film adaptation of the same scene, Harry is only shown to be approximately 33 years old.
So how did the filmmakers arrive at this discrepancy? There are a few possible explanations. First, it’s worth noting that not every character ages at the same rate in either the books or movies. In the epilogue scene, for instance, Ginny (Harry’s wife) appears to be about 32 years old in the film, even though she should technically be a year older than Harry according to the books.
It’s also possible that J.K. Rowling simply chose not to age her characters as much in the movie version of the epilogue scene as she did in the book. After all, 37 years is a long time, and it’s entirely possible that Rowling wanted to keep her characters looking relatively young in order to maintain some sense of continuity with the previous films in which they appeared.
Whatever the reason for this discrepancy may be, it’s clear that there are some major differences between how old the characters are supposed to be in the books vs. how old they appear to be in the films.
The real-life ages of the Harry Potter actors in the last movie
The last Harry Potter movie was released in 2011, but the story actually takes place in 1998. That means, at the time of the battle of Hogwarts, Harry Potter was 17 years old.
Here are the real-life ages of the Harry Potter actors in the last movie:
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) – 20 years old
Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) – 21 years old
Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) – 19 years old
Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) – 23 years old
Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) – 22 years old
How old the Harry Potter characters would be in 2020
The Harry Potter series ended in 2007, with the release of the seventh and final book. But what if the story had continued? How old would the characters be in 2020?
We know that Harry Potter was born in 1980, so he would be 40 years old. Ron Weasley was born in 1980, so he would also be 40 years old. Hermione Granger was born in 1979, so she would be 41 years old.
What about the other characters? We don’t know their exact birthdates, but we can make some educated guesses. Professor Dumbledore was born in 1881, so he would be 139 years old. Professor Snape was born in 1960, so he would be 60 years old. And Lord Voldemort was born in 1926, so he would be 94 years old.
What the Harry Potter characters are doing now that they’re all grown up
Now that Harry Potter is all grown up, what are the characters up to? Here’s a look at what the main characters from the Harry Potter movies are doing now.
After defeating Voldemort, Harry married Ginny Weasley and they had three children: James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. Harry eventually became the Head of Magical Law Enforcement for the British Ministry of Magic.
Ron also married Hermione Granger and they had two children: Rose and Hugo. Ron became a successful businessman and started his own joke shop called Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
Hermione also married Ron Weasley and they had two children: Rose and Hugo. Hermione went on to have a successful career as a lawyer and became the Head of Magical Law Enforcement for the British Ministry of Magic.
How J.K. Rowling’s views on aging have changed since the last Harry Potter movie
In the last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter is 17 years old. This is in keeping with the ages of the characters in the books, which are based on the ages of the actors in the movies. However, J.K. Rowling’s views on aging have changed since the last movie was released.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rowling said that she regrets not making Harry Potter older in the last movie. “I think we could have got away with making him older,” she said. “I wanted him to be 17 years old, which is what he is in the seventh book.”
Rowling also said that she wishes she had made Hermione Granger older in the last movie. “I’m really sorry that we didn’t make Hermione look a little bit more like Emma [Watson] as she got older,” she said. “I would have liked to have kept her to look a little bit more as Emma grew up.”
What we can expect from the new Harry Potter movie
With the release of the last Harry Potter movie, fans are wondering how old Harry, Ron and Hermione will be in the film. According to J.K. Rowling, Harry was born in 1980, meaning he would be 19 years old in the seventh and final book. However, the events of the fifth and sixth books take place over the course of two school years, so it is possible that Harry could be anywhere from 17 to 18 years old in the seventh book/movie. Ron and Hermione, born in 1980 and 1979 respectively, would also be in their late teens.
