It’s been over 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was released, but the fan theories just keep on rolling in.
This time around, the theories are all about the boy-who-lived’s famous lightning bolt scar.
You see, it seems Harry Potter’s scar actually isn’t a lightning bolt.
Twitter account Today Years Old has claimed that the shape of Harry’s iconic scar is no accident at all.
Instead, the shape of the scar of his forehead relates directly to the ‘Avada Kedavra’ spell Voldemort used in an attempt to murder Harry as a child.
According to the Twitter user, the lightning shape scar is incredibly similar to the gesture used by witches and wizards to cast the Avada Kedavra spell.
“Did you know Harry Potter’s scar isn’t a lightning bolt, but actually the hand motion to cast Avada Kedavra,” the Twitter user wrote.

It’s safe to say that the revelation had a lot of fans freaking out.
This just blew my mind! I just took it that #Harrypotter’s scare is a lightening bolt and not the wand motion to cast the Avada Kedavra curse! Going to have to watch the @HarryPotterFilm again ☺️ ????♂️ https://t.co/Np97uj1yuj
