May 2nd is an important day in the world of Harry Potter. On this date 22 years ago, the Battle of Hogwarts took place at the beloved wizarding school. Despite the fact that the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book was released in 2007 and Part II of the film series was released in 2011, the story actually takes place in 1998. While some people have taken to Twitter today to celebrate the 12th anniversary of Iron Man, many others have chosen to honor those who fell at Hogwarts 22 years ago.
Before we get to some of the best tweets about the Battle of Hogwarts, some other interesting Harry Potter news has happened recently. For example, Funko has released many Harry Potter Pop figures over the years, but the one that they announced at Toy Fair earlier this year is definitely the biggest. In fact, it stands at 18-inches tall - a size that we have only seen twice before with this 80th anniversary Batman Pop (Entertainment Earth - $99.99), and this Funko Shop exclusive 1966 Batman. In addition to this sweet new Funko, it was also revealed recently that Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) is expecting his first child with girlfriend Georgia Groome. Other recent Harry Potter news includes Jason Isaacs revealing what he thinks happened to Lucius Malfoy and JK Rowling sharing a heartbreaking tribute to Alan Rickman.
Now, here are some of the best posts to hit Twitter today about the Battle of Hogwarts...

Focusing on the Good
Look, we need more positivity right now. For this year's anniversary of the #BattleOfHogwarts, I'm celebrating the anniversary of Molly saying "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!" and not focusing on the sad parts.— Potterless (@PotterlessPod) May 2, 2020
