Since the release of the Harry Potter RPG game, a slew of Hogwarts Legacy mods have been released, some aimed to fix existing issues while others added new content to the game. This Hogwarts Legacy expansion has got to be one of the weirdest, as it answers the question of whether Hagrid is in Hogwarts Legacy.
'Hagrid Paintings' adds the school's well-known groundskeeper to Hogwarts Legacy via some of the castle's famous living paintings. However, the Hogwarts Legacy mod does not have to be extensive. There's also video and audio included as part of the package.
Oh, and it is also PS1 Hagrid, since, of course.
However, this does not aspire to recreate Hagrid back in some sort of lore-friendly way.
CHRBRG also explains how to install the Hogwarts legacy mod, first you need to go into the Steam directory. Then you replace the below with the downloaded files:
- C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy\Phoenix\Content\Movies\ ATL_Portrait_9_Music.bk2
- C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy\Phoenix\Content\Movies\ ATL_Portrait_9_Music_LQ.bk2
Is this mod immersive? Not really. Does it make much sense? Also no. However, this doesn't mean that putting Hagrid into Hogwarts Legacy by any means necessary isn't worthwhile.
The Hagrid Painting mod for Hogwarts Legacy may be found here. Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings and a legendary actor turned meme Nicolas Cage also feature.

JK Rowling, the creator of the Harry Potter series, has made a number of transphobic comments on social media in recent years. While the details of that license aren't publicly known, and WB Games claims that "J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game," it is possible that as the creator and owner of the Harry Potter IP, she will earn royalties from its sales.
