Previews for the highly anticipated eighth Harry Potter story began on Tuesday (June 7) in London’s West End and now, the official Cursed Child Twitter has given fans all across the world an exclusive first look at the hallowed halls of Hogwarts, 19 years later.
“The first public preview of #HarryPotterPlay #CursedChild has just started. Welcome to Hogwarts! #KeepTheSecrets” tweeted the play just yesterday.
The picture they included features students standing in what we’re thinking may very well be the Great Hall. With its wide arches, and sleek pillars, Hogwarts in play form is looking pretty majestic if you ask us! The photo also gives fans a great first look at the updated house banners for Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.
Of course, we’ll always have a special place in our hearts for the original, medieval looking banners from Harry’s years at Hogwarts, but we’re kind of digging the sleek new vibe of these new ones, too!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child officially opens in London’s West End on July 30. A script book version of the play is set to be released on July 31.
