Within the enchanting world of witchcraft and wizardry, there is much to still be explained and explored.

These fan theories offer captivating explanations that deserve a place in the upcoming series.

1. A Misunderstood Prophecy

Many fans believe that combining the Hallows does not make one the Master of Death, instead, the Master of Death is the one who would ultimately unite the Hallows, and Harry’s encounters with death would have made him a Master of Death, capable of uniting the Hallows.

2. Harry attracting Dementors

The Dementors' fixation on Harry was not a mere plot device. They were drawn to him due to the presence of a fragment of Voldemort's soul within him, basically making him an extra-large meal. The Dementors’ unrelenting pursuit of Harry could have also helped Dumbledore to realize that Harry was unknowingly a Horcrux.

3. Neville Longbottom’s wand woes

Neville Longbottom's journey from an awkward, timid child to a courageous hero was marked by a consistent struggle with his wand. Fans speculate that his father's old wand, a mere hand-me-down, was the source of his spell mishaps.

It never truly 'chose him,' which explains how Neville's magical abilities suddenly improved when his grandmother gifted him a new wand in The Half-Blood Prince.

4. The Centaurs' Knowledge of Harry's Fate

This scene was cut out of the movie, but in the Philosopher's Stone book, Harry is saved from Voldemort in the forest by Firenze the centaur, who was subsequently scolded by the others for intervening in his destiny.

The other centaurs scolded Firenze, reminding him that the stars had already determined Harry’s fate and he had gotten in the way. This suggests one thing: They knew Harry’s impending fate, he was meant to be killed by Voldemort in the forest.

5. Harry could be Godric Gryffindor’s Heir

Harry's fears of being the heir of Slytherin stemmed from Voldemort's soul fragment within him, but he may have actually been the heir of Gryffindor. The sudden appearance of the Sword of Gryffindor supports this idea, despite its ability to manifest for any worthy Gryffindor student.

6. The Pink Umbrella

Harry Potter fans know the catastrophic disaster that comes with casting spells using a broken wand, and this is not the case with Hagrid’s mended ‘wand’ which has brought up the idea that Dumbledore used the Elder Wand to fully mend Hagrid’s wand and disguised what he did by concealing the mended wand in a quirky pink umbrella, true to the beloved headmaster’s style.

7. The Deathly Hallows were forged with Thestral Magic

Little is known about Luna Lovegood's cherished Thestrals, except for their mysterious association with death. One theory suggests that the Peverell brothers harnessed the power of Thestral magic to create the Deathly Hallows.

With these captivating fan theories, the Harry Potter universe becomes even more enchanting, leaving fans all the more eager to see light shed on one, if not all of these theories in the upcoming series.
