Wright is speaking as part of the federal government’s pre-budget consultations ahead of the 2017 budget.

Pottermore reveals first look at characters in “Cursed Child”

Pottermore revealed the first look at the cast for the upcoming play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is set nineteen years after the last chapter of Deathly Hallows – not 19 years after the epilogue – and follows Harry, who is working at the Ministry of Magic, and his youngest son Albus Severus Potter, who is struggling with his family’s legacy.

Jamie Parker will play Harry Potter. Paul Thornley will play Ron Weasley. Noma Dumezweni will play Hermione Granger – the first canonical interpretation of a black Hermione.

With these photos came the official casting announcements for Ginny, Rose and Albus. Ginny Weasley (now, Ginny Potter) will be played by “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” actress Poppy Miller, while “The Musketeers” actor Sam Clemmett will play Albus Potter. Rose Granger-Weasley will be played by “Danny and the Human Zoo” actress Cherrelle Skeete.

Katrina Lindsay designed the costumes, with Carole Hancock designing make-up. More photos are available on Pottermore’s website, with Pottermore scheduled to reveal two more photos of cast members tomorrow.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is written by Jack Thorne in collaboration with J.K. Rowling. It will be presented in two parts.
