The Cursed Child celebrated exactly one month of being in previews by hosting a special guest: Emma Watson. As far as we know, it’s the first time one of the original leads from the Harry Potter film series has seen “the eighth story.”

Magical on all counts.

The Cursed Child opens officially on July 30. The script book will be available worldwide the following day.
