The Weird Sisters performed at the Yule Ball and then we never saw them again. What happened to them and did they make more music or what?
Remember the Weird Sisters? Well, if not, they were the band that sang about a hippogriff at the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But what ever happened to them other than that one gig? Did they fight along side Harry and his friends to take down Voldemort?
I always wondered what happened to the ‘celebrities’ of the wizarding world during the Battle of Hogwarts. Was it just exclusive to students and staff and those willing to fight or were other wizards drafted into the army to help fight the Dark Lord?
While the books didn’t focus on military tactics, I wonder what kind of world it was surrounding the events we saw. Now, we know for a fact that Harry and his friends became soldiers of sorts. But what about the rest of the world? What about the Weird Sisters?
Did they survive and go on to make more music and live out their musical endeavors? We will probably never know for sure. They’re not very high up on the fan list of “what happened to so and so”.
But they might get their comeuppance some day. They’re still part of the canon and with all the new stuff coming out from J.K Rowling, maybe she’ll reveal the fate of our favorite Yule Ball band. If not, let’s just pretend they had lots more albums for Harry, Ron, and Hermione to listen to.
Honestly, I just wish we got more of this weird band. They were fun, they asked us great questions, and they made the kids at Hogwarts forget their problems for a little while. So what’s not to love?
