Big news from the wizarding world this week as JK Rowling has given us all the first look at her upcoming play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, featuring a sneaky peek at Harry, Ron and Hermione with their wands at the ready.

Visiting the Palace Theatre in London, JK Rowling kicks off the vid by pointing to a sign on the backstage door which readers 'Keep calm and keep the secrets', so it looks as though we won't be getting any big spoilers until the show kicks off on July 31st.

Throughout the clip, Harry (Jamie Parker), Ron (Paul Thornley) and Hermione (Noma Dumezweni) can be seen practicing their wand choreography which is pretty exciting, and it looks as though the chemistry between them is going to be ace.
