The Middle-Aged Harry Potter Play Is a Real Thing That Will Totally Make You Feel Old

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a London play set 19 years following the end of the original seven-book Harry Potter series, just released its first public pictures of its in-character cast for the show that’s set to debut later this summer.

Warning: your entire youth’s fond memories of the Hogwarts wizard and his pals are at risk with this one picture.

By the looks of it, Stage Harry should be in the running for the inaugural Post Grad Problems Man of the Year. I’m as adamant as they come about never peaking (or Clooney-ing, if you will), so I’ve gotta applaud the man for not being a Hogwarts has-been. We all know that can happen to the best of them. That full head of flow and a best-of-all-worlds wife — who, if I’m not mistaken, is his best friend’s younger sister, Ginny Weasley — is the dream early-40s life that we should all strive for.

JK Rowling has had a major role in the development of the stage spinoff, according to its website. Previews for the show begin Tuesday, June 7, while it opens to the public at the Palace Theatre London on July 31.
