Harry Potter and the Question of Canon

My Session Status

10:15 AM, Saturday 12 Oct 2019 EDT (1 hour)
Seaport World Trade Center - Beacon Hill Complex
Beyond the Books and FilmsExamine the Canon
As Potter fans move further away from the core novels and into the realms of Fantastic Beasts, Cursed Child, the Universal parks,, and more, how do we negotiate our concepts of what is canon and what isn’t? What happens when something Jo writes on Twitter contradicts something in the books? What about the films or stage shows? Do we accept spells and characters in the video games as official? Join the hosts of Hold My Butterbeer, a new Harry Potter podcast, as they discuss navigating Harry Potter canon.
