It’s been nearly ten years since the Harry Potter films came to an end with The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. So, it’s really no surprise that many Potterheads have probably rewatched all of the movies countless times over the years.
However, it looks like a few fans just discovered that one Harry Potter film has a secret post-credits scene.

Unless you’re a big Marvel fan, many of us aren’t used to waiting around for a secret scene at the end of a film’s credits. So, it came as a surprise to some Harry Potter fans when they discovered that a post-credits scene is hidden at the end of Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets. Of course, the discovery was told on TikTok and soon spread across the internet.
Earlier this month, TikTok user @perfect.dodge was one of the first fans to post about the post-credits scene on the video-sharing platform. As it turns out, the scene offers some insight into Gilderoy Lockhart. As we all remember, the wizard lost his memory towards the end of Chamber Of Secrets.
The secret scene reveals that Lockhart released another biography titled Who Am I? The book’s cover shows the wizard wearing a straight jacket, confirming that he never actually recovered from his memory loss in the film.

Over the past few weeks, a lot of Harry Potter news has been revealed. Last month, we learned that Warner Bros. reportedly has a Harry Potter TV series in the works at HBO Max. Shortly after, Rupert Grint shared just what he thinks about the spinoff show. He also explained what it would take for him to reprise his role as Ron Weasley in the future. Additionally, Tom Felton reminded fans that he actually acted alongside his real-life grandfather in one of the early Harry Potter films.
