There's An Epic Reveal About Hermione In The New 'Harry Potter' Play

SPOILER ALERT FOR "HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD!" Do not read this if you don't want to be spoiled, people!

So, JK Rowling's new "Harry Potter" play had its first performance last night in London. And, unsurprisingly, spoilers are already everywhere.

Despite Rowling urging playgoers to "Keep The Secrets," many fans, you know, can't afford to fly to London to see a sold-out play.

Luckily, "Potter" fans have each other's back, as always, and have been sharing what they learned.

According to a report from Hypable, which had staff members at the play last night, there's a pretty cool reveal about Hermione. It's something we might have predicted would happen, but it's still amazing to get confirmation on.

Hermione Granger is the new Minister of Magic.


I mean, I always knew she would do it, but who knew she would do it SO QUICKLY?!

Don't forget, "Cursed Child" takes place 19 years after the seventh book ends, which means Hermione is only 36. That's pretty young to be ruling the Wizarding World!


Hermione is played by actress Noma Dumezweni, and according to the fans who've seen the show, she totally nails her performance.

"Potter" fans everywhere are SO on board with this new Hermione.
