The 8th book in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is set 19 years after the fall of You-Know-Who at the battle of Hogwarts. You would think after such an adventure Harry and his friends would have gotten their fair share of action already yet the first look we get into the new play in production for the 8th book shows us the three of them working on their dueling choreography and wand skills.

The three main characters of the first 8 films host a return of Harry Potter (Jamie Parker), Hermoine (Noma Dumezweni), and Ron (Paul Thornley). All three of them have been replaced by different actors yet as there isn’t a sign of the original trio’s cast being seen anywhere near the set.

The unveiled behind the scenes look that was recently released showing the trio’s wand skills being put to the test in a rehearsal. The plot in theatre is expected to follow a story much the same to what has been released in the book yet nothing has been confirmed yet. Unlike many modern trailers and teasers, the little that has been unveiled to us about the play has been kept tightly under wraps thus far by Rowling and the play’s directors.

One other detail that has already been released however is Rowling’s denials of the possibility of an 8th film for the series. Yet it seems unlikely this is to stay the case for long as potterheads everywhere are likely to be rallying for a film adaptation before everything is said and done and its no doubt Warner Bros would certainly be interested in the idea of additional movie deals after the massive profit brought in by the first series.

The new play seem to be based around the life of an adult Harry, who is now an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and his son Albus. Albus is conflicting with the expectations set upon his everyone seeing as how he the son of the Boy-Who-Lived. Yet Harry doesn’t seem to be doing so great himself as the story unveils an ongoing battle with his past. These events are only confounded by the fact that life never gets easier and a new darkness is rising from unexpected sources.

The incredible universe created by Rowling has awakened a fanatic fervor with fans all across the world and her play seems to be doing no less. Tickets to the opening on the West End of London are no doubt to be scarce and not to mention pricey. The play is to debut this summer and is already being hailed by many of those involved as a fantastic theatrical performance.
