Dumbledore will be there for you.

Eight of the main stars of the hugely successful ‘Harry Potter’ series, who have starred together in eight films over 17 years, will reunite onstage next month for a live theater performance of Rowling’s bestselling books.

Their journey to the wizarding world will finally come to an end at London’s West End theater, playing at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

The show, titled “Harry Potter: A Very Potter Evening” was written by J.K. Rowling, and features all eight of the films’ stars in extracts of the “Harry Potter” screenplay and stories.

Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the franchise, will also make a special appearance in a new video.

Filmed at the Lumos workshop, it sees the actors portray characters who weren’t in the books when they were written, including Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape and the Nymphadora Tonks of Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

Murray Head was nominated for a Radio Times Best Actor Award in 2005 for his portrayal of wizard Denethor in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”.

The shows take place on Thursday, March 7, Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9 and will last two hours and 40 minutes.

Tickets go on sale at the same time as the televised special “Harry Potter And The Cursed Child” on April 23, 2016 on the West End and international tour, UK.
