Canonicity Varying Levels


Ever since its release, fans have debated the canonicity of the play's script. While Rowling herself refers to this as canon and as the "eighth story," the fact that it was not actually written by Rowling and that some aspects of the story seem to contradict primary canon leave many fans hesitant.

    Canonicity: Dungeon. A level of canon reserved for the poorest of fan fiction, including stories that destroy the carefully crafted laws of the wizarding world, ignore seven books’ worth of character development, and are a black stain on the world of Harry Potter.
