Everyone’s favorite loveable loony has earned herself the Character of the Week title.
Luna burst onto the scene in Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts and quickly won over everyone’s hearts. Her quirky ways and oblivious nature threw off most people, but Harry particularly enjoyed the fact that she was always herself, no matter who she was talking to. Luna, of course, went on to become a stronger character throughout the books, she joined Dumbledore’s Army, followed Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville to the Ministry of Magic, she helped a few members of Dumbledore’s Army fight off Death Eaters in the Half-blood Prince, she actively opposed Voldemort, and fought to protect Hogwarts in the Deathly Hallows. For a character that hadn’t been around for the majority of the series, she really made a big name for herself in the final three books.
Above anything Luna was honest, determined, formidable, and a student worthy of being sorted in Ravenclaw. Though she was viewed as loony person, she had wit, cunning, and intelligence that surpassed her peers.
We hope you join us as we celebrate Luna Lovegood with the Character of the Week title, perhaps bust out the Order of the Phoenix book, or movie, and give it another go.
Thank you for your time, and remember, not all those who wander are lost.
