Harry Potter’s story did not end with the last film – it expanded into a two-part play titled “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” which tells the story of Harry’s son Albus. The play will open on July 30 in London and will run until May 2017.
Harry and his friends, Hermione and Ron as well as his wife Ginny will be seen again by the fans. But this time, it will be onstage and with different set of actors. Images of the casts have been released in the past weeks and they were met with mixed reactions, especially the black Hermione.
Actor Daniel Radcliffe said that he won’t be watching the play “for the time being” as he feels that sitting with “very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might be like not a relaxing way to see a show."
How about you? Will you be traveling to London to watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on stage? I bet you wish you have a Nimbus 2000 stashed in your closet to do that easily!
It’s a good thing that fans all over the world continue to create Harry Potter arts that reignite Potterheads’ love and passion for Harry Potter’s world. Moviepilot wrote about the works of one fan named Viria13 with “the most magical Harry fan art ever.” Viria13 had drawn images of Harry Potter characters in their younger days – their adventures and stories.
The Marauders of Hogwarts played an important part in Harry Potter’s story as James Potter, Harry’s father, was one of the four Gryffindors who formed the group. Other members were Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, and Sirius Black. Did you ever wonder how they were in their younger days before the Marauder’s Map was made?
The story of young Severus Snape and Lily Evans had touched the fans’ hearts. Snape’s unrequited love for Lily made him turn against his master Lord Voldemort to protect Harry. What might have happened if Snape did not turn into Dark Arts?
And of course, who does not want to lay their eyes to Harry Potter and his friends again? Not a Potterhead! See how beautifully Viria13 illustrated Hermione, Ron, Harry, and Ginny? Gives you a warm feeling right? Makes you want to watch Harry Potter movies all over again!
