We should ask ourselves:

Everybody knows that Harry Potter is the Boy-Who-Lived, but what if nobody knew just how exactly he lived?

Everybody knows of several ways to interpret the Prophesy, but what if the literal meaning is the most important one?

Everybody knows Harry to be a nice sweet boy, but what if it's not the case?

He won the war and was hoping to finally get some rest from the busy world, but suddenly some new unknown dark forces stepped onto the chessboard, challenging him to play a deadly 'hide-and-seek' game. So the most important question would be, does infamous happily-ever-after exist and would fighting for it even be worth it?
