Brace yourself: George Weasley may have grown up to be the King of Chocolate, Willy Wonka himself.
The idea of these two magical universes converging in some way is enough to make our young hearts swoon! Though I’m ultimately a Harry Potter fan, it was Roald Dahl’s books, especially Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, that honed my love for magical, imaginative storylines. If you’re a fan of both as well, it’s hard not to notice similarities in the various stories. Of all the fan fiction and fan theories out there, this one is so lighthearted and gives an inkling of hope for George Weasley, whom we know suffered one of the greatest losses of them all when his twin brother Fred died at the Battle of Hogwarts.
Consider: George drops out of Hogwarts with Fred (then under the terrible control of Dolores Umbridge) to take their talents elsewhere. Along with jokes, cleverness, and pranks, the two have a knack for business. Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes sells magical variations of joke candies, prank products, and other objects. Some products, like the Puking Pastille, seem like something that could be found in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory alongside Violet Beauregarde’s bubble gum or Mike Teavee’s chocolate television. Different, but also the same.
