My fragile heart can't take this.

Yesterday, Pottermore released the first photos of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cast in character ahead of its opening to the public on June 7.

The photos showed the new Potter family: Harry, Ginny, and Albus Severus.

They promised to release new photos as the week went on, and they haven't disappointed, because today we've been given our first look at Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Rose Granger-Weasley.

And yes, Hermione officially kept her last name.

This is the first time we've seen Noma Dumezweni in character as Hermione, and she looks absolutely perfect.

The wand! The robes! The stern-but-caring expression!

Here's a solo shot of Paul Thornley as the ever-lovable Ron Weasley. He seems to have gone a ~little~ bit more ginger for the play.

And according to J.K. Rowling, "Ron in his forties isn't very different from Ron in his teens, except that his feet hurt a bit more."

This is also our first introduction to Ron and Hermione's daughter, Rose, who will be played by Cherrelle Skeete. With her smart robes and cheeky smile, she looks like a perfect combination of the two of them, tbh.

"Rose is like her mother, but more secure, more grounded," Rowling says. "She was born to wizards and knows her place in the world. Cherrelle plays her perfectly: bossy but deeply lovable."

So, now we have our Granger-Weasleys. But who will be revealed tomorrow?

WE CAN'T WAIT. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
