That's James there on the right.YouTube

Yes, as you're (likely) sending your own offspring to school, author J.K. Rowling has taken a moment to remind us that they are not alone in getting on board for a brand-new adventure.

Hey, it's not easy being the son of the boy who lived! Good luck, James!
