J.K. Rowling once again has set twitter and the Harry Potter fan community aflame with the revelation that the ‘t’ in Voldemort’s name is silent. Some fans have thought this has been common knowledge for quite some time. Other Potterheads have apologized to Rowling for mispronouncing the Dark Lord’s name all these years.
The surprising confession might beg the question why this was not shared or relayed to the films’ producers - in which all eight movies pronounce a prominent ‘t’. Nevertheless, it’s one new fact that fans can add to the collection of post-series insights that have been made by the beloved author.
