A lot of new material has been added to the Harry Potter world after-the-fact, but there are some new bits of information that fans wish had been included in the first place. One of those is Dumbledore's sexuality—it was nice that Rowling said he was gay, but that kind of representation is way more powerful when it's more than just an out-of-universe confirmation.

Who wouldn't, really?
Whether you were aching for a continuation of the story of The Boy Who Lived or would've been happy leaving it up to imagination, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now part of the series' canon, which makes things tough for fans who can't get to London to experience it for themselves.
