Last week, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was busy releasing new photos from the upcoming play – which will act as the eighth installment in the Harry Potter series – and included our first looks at some of the play’s returning Wizarding families. After revealing the Potters, the Granger-Weasleys, and the Malfoys though, our very first look at the play’s look and specifically, the Hogwarts set, has been revealed.

Sporting the iconic Hogwarts colors and banners, the image (via Twitter) puts Rose Granger-Weasley and Albus Severus Potter front and center during their Hogwarts sorting ceremony (we assume), as the first official preview of the play began today. Optimistically included with the tweet as well, was the #KeeptheSecrets, likely in the hopes of minimizing as many spoilers from leaking online early as possible.

Check out the image for yourself below:

As someone who’s been speculating with family members and friends fairly consistently over the past few months about what the play’s plot may be, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the first image released from the actual production itself, may be one of a sorting ceremony involving Albus Severus Potter. Harry’s son, who may very well be sorted into Slytherin house like he worried about in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows.

Right now, this is just me spitballing ideas of the directions I think the play could take the characters, but in a play about legacy and the relationship between Albus and Harry, the inciting incident of Albus being sorted into Slytherin house, seems like it’d make for a good place to start. We’ll have to wait and see of course, but depending on how many spoilers find their way online, it’s possible we may not have to wait long to find out the results of the sorting ceremony.
