September marks back to school for kids, and that includes Harry Potter’s son, James Sirius Potter. On Tuesday, J.K. Rowling reminded fans of the fantasy series that September 1 was James’ first day at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
I'm in Edinburgh, so could somebody at King's Cross wish James S Potter good luck for me? He's starting at Hogwarts today. #BackToHogwarts— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015
James is the oldest son of Potter and his wife, Ginny Weasley. The couple are also parents to two other kids: Albus Severus and Lily Luna Potter.
In the epilogue of the final “Harry Potter” film, Potter is seen sending his second son Albus off to Hogwarts in the year 2017. That means September 1, 2015 is James’ first day, as he is two years older than his brother.
Rowling also delighted fans by tweeting the results of the school’s annual Sorting Hat ceremony. Unsurprisingly, James is following in his parents’ footsteps.
Have just heard that James S Potter has been Sorted (to nobody's surprise) into Gryffindor. Teddy Lupin (Head Boy, Hufflepuff) disappointed.— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 1, 2015
Rowling’s update has left fans ecstatic, but emotional.

@jk_rowling my mom mentioned this tweet to me in the car and I started to cry loudly (and I'm still crying)— vik ϟ slytherpuff 6 (@mycrofthwlmes) September 1, 2015
But one Twitter user summed up our feelings exactly.
