It’s the latest outing into the world of Harry Potter for author JK Rowling, but it’s unlike any other we’ve seen before; the play is fast approaching, and the first preview snippet has appeared online.

A short clip has summoned itself as our guide Rowling looks on at the actors rehearsing, with a glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most talked about stage productions in recent years.

The play is directed by John Tiffany and written by Jack Thorne. The trio of Hermione, Harry and Ron are played by Noma Demezweni, Jaime Parker, and Paul Thorneley respectively.

Previews of the show start in July.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
