The first ever Harry Potter novel came out more than 20 years ago. And its fan following has only increased since then. Even though there are no new books coming out, fans are still keeping busy. Numerous Potter fans across the globe continue to analyze the plots and bring out new theories about it. Even author JK Rowling is super active when it comes to fan theories and keeps all engaged.
And this time around as well, a Harry Potter fan page has come up with a theory which is blowing the internet up. The theory in question is about the scar on Harry’s forehead. Aren’t you curious about what the theory is? Read all about it ahead.
So a Twitter handle called ‘Today Years Old’ recently tweeted a theory about Harry’s scar. According to this theory, the scar on Potter’s head is not a lighting bolt as many presumed. It is instead, the hand movement made to cast the spell ‘Avada Kedavra’. In the tweet, the user uploaded a shot of the scar and also a screenshot of the Wikipedia page for the spell.
Here is the new Harry Potter theory:

Well, I must confess this certainly is mind-bogglingly probable. And netizens across the globe can’t control their emotions as this theory makes sense to a lot of them.

Did even JK Rowling know this?

This just blew my mind
This just blew my mind! I just took it that #Harrypotter’s scare is a lightening bolt and not the wand motion to cast the Avada Kedavra curse! Going to have to watch the @HarryPotterFilm again ☺️ 🧙♂️ https://t.co/Np97uj1yuj

If it’s true, why wasn’t it mentioned ever before?
So if this is true, then why is the movement NEVER mentioned elsewhere at any point and time? Also, if this is true, why has nothing been confirmed/denied on it yet by @jk_rowling herself?

Omg I’ve never thought about it so far😣 https://t.co/l2xVRMrIEG

JK Rowling, please either confirm or deny it
@jk_rowling can you confirm or deny for all the Potterheads wondering about it (myself included) ??

Well, this theory is certainly driving all Harry Potter fans crazy. What about you? Did this blow your mind too? Are you wondering if it’s true or not? Guess only the great JK Rowling can put these theories to rest.
