The rivalries of Harry Potter live on even five years after the Battle of Hogwarts. Once again, the Malfoys are challenging the Weasleys–all in good fun, of course. In anticipation of an upcoming appearance at Megacon in Orlando, Florida, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) tweeted:

Before we’d all gotten a chance to wish we could be there, Felton’s onscreen father, Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), responded:

Oh snap. The Weasleys are being called out by the Malfoys once more. Well, you know, the red-haired brood were never ones to let those platinum-haired elitists get the better of them (who cares if their natural hair color is different in reality–don’t be a buzzkill):

Okay, perhaps it isn’t the dramatic blood match that we used to expect onscreen. That being said, there’s something rather endearing in that so many years later, the cast members, regardless of whether they portrayed Death Eaters or not, are still so close and let we adoring fans in on some of their friendly banter.
The foursome will appear together at Megacon this Friday-Sunday at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, allowing fans a chance to collect autographs and photo ops (for a fee, of course). Costar Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) was scheduled to attend but is now listed as “delayed.”
Lest you think these guys have been out of play since the defeat of Voldemort, rest easy. They have kept quite busy, with Felton likely appearing in the most high profile projects of the four with films like Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Risen under his belt. Expect him later this year in Message From the King starring alongside Chadwick Boseman, Luke Evans and Alfred Molina. Isaacs, no stranger to voice work, has enjoyed a very successful stint as The Inquisitor on Star Wars: Rebels since 2014 and has a string of projects set to release over the next several months.
