Fans like to get to the bottom of things when it comes to their beloved movies and TV shows. Harry Potter has been around for a long time and fans have kept themselves busy coming up with crazy theories and ideas about different events and plot twists. Think you know who Ron Weasely truly is? You’re up for a big surprise there! Even J. K. Rowling will be stunned to read some of these ideas. But are they true or false? Here are 8 Harry Potter fan theories that will make your head spin.
1. Ron Weasely and time-travelling
Some HP fans think that Ron actually knows how to time travel. And that he is Dumbledore himself! Fans got this freaky idea from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, where Ron played Wizard’s Chess as both the king and the knight. These two can be compared to Ron and Dumbledore and the roles they play in a much bigger war of magic that’s about to come. A little bit far-fetched, but sounds quite reasonable if you think about it.
2. Horcruxes and cannibalism
JK Rowling never wrote exactly how Voldemort managed to do this freaky splitting thing with his soul and escaping death. One Reddit user had an idea that Voldemort devoured (aka simply ate) his victims. Cannibalism has always been associated with gaining strength since the early times in human history, so it would come as no surprise that Voldemort used this method. Plus, you can only create a horcrux via murder, so it kind of makes sense.
