Late last year when the official "Harry Potter And The Cursed Child" casting choices were released, many fans of the popular boy wizard series were more than a little ecstatic to see who was chosen as the new Hermione.
Noma Dumezweni, the new POC Hermione, opened up the doors to making a very popular and very beloved idea of who Hermione is or who she could be canon.
With the new casting confirmed and the play set to open in previews in June 2016, many fans of the series have been flocking to various stars of the franchise to get their take on this new colorblind casting.
In a response to a Twitter fan's query about continuity issues, Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)'s response confirmed that in the grand scheme of things it really didn't matter.
And J.K. Rowling reminded fans that Hermione was never ascribed a physical race description in the book series.
Emma Watson, who plays Hermione in all eight of the films in the series, weighed in on this on Saturday and is seemingly thrilled to be passing on the Hermione torch to Dumezweni.
Dumezweni, an award-winning theater actress, will be joining Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley as Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, respectively, as the play opens 19 years after the events of "The Deathly Hallows."
There is no doubt in our minds that our new Hermione will continue to inspire in much the same way as Emma Watson did from the very beginning of her Hermione journey, and she's doing it all with the support and love of the fans and film cast alike.
