The eighth installment in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, The Cursed Child, will debut as a two-part play in the West End this summer. Set 19 years after the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the Cursed Child will follow Harry Potter, now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his youngest son Albus Severus Potter, and it will become part of the official Harry Potter cannon.

Ahead of the previews for the play, Pottermore has released photos of the cast, and while Harry and Ginny look like older versions of their movie characters, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley delightfully do not. Here’s Harry, Albus, and Ginny, played by Jamie Parker, Sam Clemmett, and Poppy Miller, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Granger-Weasleys are perhaps less immediately identifiable. Here are Ron, Hermione, and their daughter, Rose Granger-Weasley, played by Paul Thornley, Noma Dumezweni and Cherrelle Skeete.


Here’s a closer look.


As Hermione’s race was never specified in the source material, this new Hermione does not break canon.
