With Harry Potter and the Cursed Child coming out July 31, Harry Potter mania is at a peak high. Fans are anxiously rereading J.K. Rowling's beloved series, preparing for yet another magical midnight release, and figuring out how TF to get tickets to see the two-part stage play in London. But while Potterheads are trying to balance these things without the help of magic — or even some mugs of Butterbeer — the members of everyone's favorite ship reunited in New York City Thursday evening (July 21).
Joined by Radcliffe and Wright is their former director Chris Columbus, who directed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. As Columbus wrote on Instagram, "Chamber Of Secrets reunion... The future Mr and Mrs. Harry Potter..."
The unique show encourages its audience members to use their phones during the performance — something unheard of in the theater world.

Thank goodness the Harry Potter couple have come such a long way from this stage in their relationship.
