The Internet Just Cast an All Black Harry Potter and It Looks Incredible

December 22nd 2015

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard that a Black actress has been cast as Hermione Granger in the new upcoming Harry Potter theater production.

Noma Dumezweni (middle) will be starring in the coveted role, and though some people have a problem with racial progress, support and praise for the decision has been coming in droves — even from Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling.

In the spirit of racial progress, some brilliant creatures on Twitter created the hashtag; #BlackHarryPotter, that imagines what an entirely black cast of the popular book series would look like. Here are some of the inspired suggestions:

Albus Dumbledore

Harry Potter (or Dean Thomas again...)

Ginny and Ron Weasley

Fred and George Weasley

Hagrid and Dobby

Lily and James Potter

Arthur Weasley

Gilderoy Lockhart

Draco, Crabbe, and Goyle

And of course... the Sorting Hat

Bravo, Twitter.
