Dudley Dursley is a spoiled, capricious child, obnoxious to his cousin and cordially hated by fans ofHarry potter ! J.K Rowling, who recently surprised fans by revealing the true origins of the saga, had originally planned for this annoying character originally a much more magical end than the one we know him. The narrative arc of the son of Vernon and Petunia Dursley, which appears in no less than five of the eight films of the magic world, could have end on a positive redemption note, if the author of the novels had not changed her mind. When the Chosen One saves him from the Dementors, we are already witnessing a fairly subtle personality change. But it could have gone much further!
As you remember, the epilogue ofHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (which you may have missed the inconsistencies in Part 1), reveals the Hogwarts students who have become adults. Hermione, Ron, Draco, Ginny … Everyone is present on platform 9 3/4 to accompany the children during their first train ride to the sorcerer’s school. However, J.K Rowling had initially planned that Dudley is one of those adults with his own offspring with magical gifts! However, the writer finally decided that no unusual gene could survive her DNA … Not very flattering for him, but he deserved it! So the author decided at the last moment to get married and have two Muggle children. Too bad for him !
