Harry Potter and the Cursed Child sneak peek shows the wizards behind the curtain

The Harry Potter franchise is one of the largest phenomena to ever grace pop culture. And author J.K. Rowling's legacy of magic and mystery will continue in just shy of two months, when Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - a stage play sequel to original saga - premieres in London.

I gotta say, I admire Rowling for wanting to keep the performance as much a secret as possible. In an age where movie trailers can sometimes feel like they give away the whole plot, here we get only the faintest of glimpses of wand choreography. The Harry Potter fandom is beyond enthusiastic to immerse themselves in whatever material they can get their hands on, but I also feel like they'll appreciate feeling the magic for themselves.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will premiere on July 30 at the Palace Theatre, London.
