What Sorcery Is This?

Harry Potter fans around the world are in an uproar over a decision even Professor Trelawney never saw coming.

With JK Rowling’s new spinoff play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child coming to stage in London, fans have already been nervous about where the story could be headed and what might have happened to our favorite characters since we left them in an epilogue at the end of Deathly Hallows.

And yet nobody expected the latest news from The Cursed Child: the casting of a black Hermione.

Following the announcement that black actress Noma Dumezweni had been cast as the formidable witch and one of Harry Potter’s best friends, some people just couldn’t handle it. Others, however, rejoiced in the idea of it, including JK Rowling herself.
