Any and all news about the newest Harry Potter franchise is exciting to us here at Sci Fi Drama Queen, and the Cursed Child has a particular interest for us as we are one of the lucky ticket holders. If you haven’t heard about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child yet… Where have you been? The Cursed Child is an upcoming two part stage play in the West End that was written by Jack Thorne and based on a story by J. K. Rowling, Thorne and the Director John Tiffany and it’s scheduled to be released on the 30th July.
Not too much is known about the play, however a synopsis was released that at least tells us that the story is set after the books when Harry Potter is an overworked husband and father to three school-age children. While Harry has troubles with his past, his youngest son Albus struggles with a family legacy he never signed up for. We’re ominously told that past and present collide and that darkness comes from the most unexpected places.
Very recently new cast photos have been released, giving us a look at Harry, Ginny and their son, as well as showing us Ron and Hermione and their daughter Rose, and Draco and his son Scorpius. Check out the rest of the cast photos below, what do you think of the casting? Do they look like you imagined, and how hard is it to see our beloved characters being played as different actor and actresses?
