Get ready to meet the Potters! Pottermore has shared the first ever photos of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” J.K. Rowling too has revealed things about the most anticipated play which previews in a week.

The last “Harry Potter” movie introduced us to Albus Severus Potter. However, it is time to know more about the Potters 19 years after Hogwarts. Pottermore and the Twitter handle for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” have shared a Potter family portrait and some behind-the-scenes news of the play, which takes to the stage in July.

Jamie Parker, Sam Clemmett, and Poppy Miller make the Potter family in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” The image is captured by Charlie Gray and shows an older Harry with son Albus and Ginny in the portrait.

According to Time, the story picks up 19 years after the “Deathly Hallows” book. The plot explores the struggles of Harry’s son Albus in dealing with the weight of the family legacy; something he never wanted. The Hollywood Reporter states that the storyline includes Harry’s work at the Ministry of Magic. He and Ginny are parents to three kids, Albus being the middle child.

Not much is known about the official story until J.K. Rowling’s recent Twitter revelations. Her interactions with her fans have hinted that the audience will have to keep the tissues handy. Another Time report informs that when asked if the play will make him cry, Rowling replied to her fan, saying, “If it doesn’t, we’ll be checking your vital signs.”

Another fan wondered as to why the author would want to make people cry, to which she replied, “I’m a writer. If you’re not feeling, I’m not doing it right.” “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” opens on July 30 in London’s West End. The play’s costumes are done by Katrina Lindsay and Carole Hancock is in charge of hair and make-up.
