JK Rowling has confirmed that she was totally schooling us all in one particular passage in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, because she's kind of amazing like that.

The author responded to a theory proposed by one Twitter user that she "included that passage on how to pronounce Hermione's name in Goblet of Fire just to school all of us who were saying HER-MY-OWN like Viktor Krum".

And in her own classy way, Rowling responded that it was in fact "correct".

Of course, the writer is well-known for weighing-in on some of the biggest Harry Potter fan theories out there - and we've compiled a list of some of the best.

In other Potter news, Daniel Radcliffe recently opened up about playing the boy wizard, admitting that he actually never felt cool when doing the role.

"I never as a kid - you know when you're just insecure at that age - I never felt cool at any point playing that character," he said. "And sort of these things go like 'No!'... people thought that was pretty cool! It's nice, yeah."

We will next enter the Potter-verse in the new Fantastic Beasts movie The Crimes of Grindelwald, which recently teased a brand new look at classic Potter character Nicolas Flamel.

We're sure you can pronounce that one correctly.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in UK and US cinemas on November 16, 2018.
