Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is getting closer and closer to its opening this summer, and with rehearsals now underway, it’s time for a little magic.

J.K. Rowling shared a photo Monday on Twitter showing the wand designs for the now-grown Boy Who Lived and some of his Hogwarts compatriots.

“Exciting morning at rehearsals for #CursedChild,” she wrote. “What do you think of our wand designs? #HarryPotterPlay”

Notes below each of the wands designate the wizard they belong to — Hermione, Harry, Ron, Draco, and Ginny — as well as what they’re made of. Ron’s wand has stripes at the base, according to the design notes, while Malfoy’s is described as a “saber.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up 19 years after the end of Deathly Hallows and follows Harry and his son, Albus. The play, touted as the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, opens July 30 at the Palace Theatre in London. For those without access to Floo Powder or plane tickets, the play’s script will also be released in book form.
