J.K. Rowling Has Just Revealed A Major Character Is Returning To "Cursed Child"

Wands at the ready.

Posted on

If you're a Harry Potter fan, you'll have spent the last few months getting ridiculously excited for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the play set to open in London this June.

Warner Bros.

You'll probably also know that J.K. Rowling, unofficial queen of Twitter, has been revealing snippets of info about the play ever since it was announced last June.

#CursedChild NOT a prequel. Lots of people asking, so I thought I'd say that again! NOT a prequel!

And today J.K. decided to share something special with us – a photo of the designs for the main cast members' wands.

Exciting morning at rehearsals for #CursedChild. What do you think of our wand designs? #HarryPotterPlay

It looks like these are the inspirations for the characters' wands:

* Hermione – vine

* Harry – veins

* Ron – striped sweater

* Draco – saber

* Ginny – cozy

Other than the official cast photo, this is our first ~real~ sneak peek of the production.

And while that's exciting in itself, there's one thing that makes this sneak peek especially exciting.

Yep, it looks like Draco Malfoy is officially returning to the Potterverse.

We just have one question: Who's playing him?
