Witches and wizards all over the world are already counting down the days until July because that's when Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, JK Rowling's new play, is finally set to open in London. AGH.

Most of the deets about Cursed Child are still very much under wraps and the whole team are doing a pretty great job at keeping it top secret – but this morning JK Rowling decided to share something pretty special with fans.

Is a secret Harry Potter and the Cursed Child...
Is this why Professor Snape is such a dick to...

JK Rowling took to Twitter to reveal the first rough designs for the main characters wands, along with the ideas that have inspired the shapes.

You can see Hermione (vine), Harry made from holly (veins) and Ron made from chestnut (striped sweater) – but HANG ON A SECOND, because there's also Draco made from hawthorne (saber), and Ginny made from yew (cozy).

So that's kind of a big deal, seeing as until now it's only been Harry, Ron and Hermione confirmed to make a return in the new story. YAS to more Draco and more "Something funny, Potter?" type moments.

Ooh, and there's also the first official cast photo, so you can sift through the whole gang and try to work out who'll be playing who.

HOLY HELGA HUFFLEPUFF.

Excited to hear that Draco and Ginny are back? Any predictions for the storyline, though? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
