Hey, sorry I haven't posted in five days. I've been posting almost every day since October 9, 2015 and once that happens, you need a break. But I'm back and I have some brand new news for you guys.

I'm going to tell you about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is a new stage play based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, staged in two parts due to the ‘epic nature of the story’. It will begin at the Palace Theatre in London sometime in 2016 and here's the plot:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Now, the roles of Harry, Ron, and Hermione have been cast and as far as I know, a lot of people are surprised about how a black actress was cast as the role of Hermione.Personally, I don't think this is a HUGE deal because of the race. I feel that they could've held up continuity better, but I don't think it really matters. Now, according to J.K. Rowling, the casting choice of Hermione IS canon.

She approves and since she wrote the story, I think it'll work.

Plus, I'm not that thrilled with the casting choice of Harry and Ron.

I mean, I honestly don't know which actor will be playing Harry and which one will be playing Ron.

But here's my poll:


Do you like the choice for Hermione?
