Today Pottermore ~finally~ revealed the first portraits of the cast in character, and they're absolutely perfect.

The photos come alongside the announcement that Ginny Potter will be played by Poppy Miller, and Albus Severus Potter will be played by Sam Clemmett.

This is our first time seeing Jamie Parker in character as Harry, with the iconic scar and glasses. And he looks spot on, tbh.

"He simply is Harry now," J.K. Rowling said of Parker. "There's a kind of relief in watching him; he gets it so right."

The photos also give us our first look at an older Ginny Weasley – who is now Ginny Potter.

And we also get to see Sam Clemmett as Albus Severus Potter, in the newly designed Hogwarts robes.

There's no doubt about it: This play will be ~magical~. ⚡️⚡️⚡️

    They look good, but Daniel Radcliffe will always be Harry to me.
