Yesterday, author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling responded to the casting of Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in excitement.
When fans caught wind of the fact that Rowling loved the idea of black Hermione, social media went wild creating fan art. They didn't stop there though, as Twitter created a #BlackHarryPotter hashtag to share pictures of black celebrities with the Harry Potter roles they were destined for.
Below are some of my favorites I saw online, feel free to share a couple cool comparisons as well!

FKA Twigs as Luna Lovegood

Morgan Freeman as Dumbledore

Jidenna as Gilderoy Lockhart

fuck this. I wanna see Morgan Freeman as Harry Potter.
Tyler Perry as Hagrid?
I say good actors... I'm all for good actors, no matter what race
Morgan Freeman as Dumbledore would be AWESOME! I would love to see Viola Davis as Professor McGonagall!! any suggestion from the potter fans? @ButterflyBlu@FannyWard @MorleeCorielus @TerrecaRiley @AleciaReedy @Danse @LizaNightshade @MorleeCorielus @Luci546 @EduardoPontier @AutummUmphries @shannonl5
