Here is our review of the upcoming Harry Potter movie.
Pottermore.com has released the first images from the Harry Potter update HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD with Jamie Parker as Harry, Poppy Miller as his wife, Ginny, and Sam Clemmett as Harry’s troubled son Albus.
The previews of both Parts 1 and 2 of the West End play written by Jack Thorne are coming next week, but these portraits give a right peek at the characters, and their resemblance to the actors who played them in the HARRY POTTER film series is uncanny. J.K. Rowling herself said about Parker: “He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right.” High praise from the person who knows both Harry and his universe better than anyone!
Parker is known for his roles in THE HISTORY BOYS and VALKYRIE and was recently seen in several episodes of JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL. Miller has done much British TV and theater in addition to the popular THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL while Clemmett is a relative newcomer.
Parker told the website, “These are stories that people have lived with for their whole lives, they’ve grown up with and now they’re adults re-joining the tale, picking it up where they left off and I’m one of them. In a sense you don’t need more than the scar and the glasses, you kind of go, ‘There it is’ and I don’t really know how to put it into words, it’s just immeasurably exciting and I can’t wait to show it to people.”
What do you guys think? Is this what you expected Harry and Ginny to look like in their 30s? Are you planning any trips to London to see the CURSED CHILD?
