Tuesday night marked the first preview of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the theatrical follow-up to JK Rowling’s wizarding novels that brings back an adult Harry, Ron and Hermione and introduces their children in a mysterious story that we still know very little about.

Still, after the initial performance we do know one thing – people absolutely love it.

Like, REALLY love it.

In fact, some people’s love might be reaching dangerous levels.

We probably shouldn’t be surprised, of course – people were pretty hyped about the play before it even began.


Of course, as a play in its preview stages it’s not quite a polished product yet.

But when it looks as good as this, we’re willing to let that slide.

The first public preview of #HarryPotterPlay #CursedChild has just started. Welcome to Hogwarts! #KeepTheSecrets

All in all, it was a great reaction. And we’re betting there’s one person in particular who’s very happy with the feedback – just so long as we all keep the plot to ourselves, of course…

Don’t worry, JK – we’re sure your secrets are safe in the hands of your fans.
