Set 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the story features an adult Harry working at the Ministry of Magic, and his young son Albus Severus James Potter. The synopsis is:

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.

The stage production caused some minor controversy when Laurence Olivier Award-winning black actor Noma Dumezweni was selected to play Hermione (although J.K. Rowling said her description of Hermione had been vague enough to allow this). Some fans, however, were thrilled – as was Emma Watson.

Fans, too, have long imagined Hermione was a person of colour (with her frizzy hair often seen as a coded way of referencing this). Fan art is one such way the idea has been explored. Here are some of our favourites.
