Go behind the scenes of The Cursed Child in this first look!
With only 46 days left until the first previews of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child begin in London, fans have been patiently waiting for more news about the show. Though everything has been kept under wraps for the past couple months, today a two minute behind the scenes piece was released, giving us footage of both J.K. Rowling discussing the play, and the actors rehearsing some pretty cool duelling moves.
This clip gives us our first real look at our new golden trio – Harry (Jamie Parker), Ron (Paul Thornley) and Hermione (Noma Dumezweni) – adding even more to everyone’s excitement. Check out the clip below:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will follow Harry and Ginny’s youngest son, Albus Severus Potter, as he goes through some difficult times with the weight of his family’s legacy that he feels is sitting on his shoulders.
I know that I cannot wait to see more of this play and discover what’s next in store for everyone’s favourite wizards. And if this clip is anything to judge by, I’m sure that The Cursed Child will be full of the same whimsical magic and brilliant storytelling that makes Harry Potter so special.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opens on July 30th at the Palace Theatre in London.
