What happens when Hermione meets Hermione? IDK, BUT WE ARE ABOUT TO FIND OUT.
In what is by far the best picture we are going to see this week, maybe this month, and quite possibly this year, Hermione met Hermione. For a few fleeting seconds in the world, everything was perfect. Our OG Hermione Jean Granger from the eight Harry Potter movies, Emma Watson, came face to face with our brand new Hermione Jean Granger from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Noma Dumezweni.
Is it too late to try and get this on the $10 bill, because this is PEAK GIRL POWER.
Judging from the picture, and the fact that it looks suspiciously like a backstage dressing room, we can infer that world-wide heroine Watson has finally seen Cursed Child. Dumezweni then tweeted a few followups, gushing about how great it was to meet the other Hermione.
Watson didn’t just hang out with Dumezweni, though. It appears as if she met the WHOLE cast — including young Albus (Sam Clemmett) and Scorpios (Anthony Boyle) — and as you can imagine, that was perfect, too.
The only thing we’re missing from this wonderful moment is Watson’s (probably glowing) review of Cursed Child. So come, on, we need to know!! What was your favorite part? Did you cry? Did you laugh? How thrilled are you with Older Hermione on a scale of 1-10? An 11, right? Are all your emotions wrecked right now? TELL US HERMIONE.
