There's A New "Cursed Child" Cast Coming In And It's Causing All Of The Feels

What do you mean the original cast isn't staying there forever?!

At this point, I'd be willing to bet a couple of galleons that you've at least heard about the incredible magic that is "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."

The famous Harry Potter play has been selling out quickly each time tickets go on sale, leaving many to try their luck with the #FridayForty...

...including yours truly. Yup, even all the way over here in California!

Then today, a casting bombshell got dropped in a Pottermore article naming May 21st as the last performance with the original cast.

Warner Bros.

Rehearsals will begin this week for the new cast, some of which are pictured below.

Although director John Tiffany and producer Sonia Friedman explain that recasting is natural in theatre, that hasn't stopped fans' hearts from breaking at the loss of the original cast.

With some people even canceling tickets upon hearing the news.

But even among the sadness...

...there seems to be a warm and loving reception for the new cast.

Which I'm sure would make Rowling proud.

Although, here's hoping that this very reasonable request will be granted!
