The rumour was an “important announcement” was on the horizon, and so with bated breath, we waited (by candlelight, because you know, drama).
No-one could’ve guessed that the news of a new Harry Potter was what we were waiting for… and our screams of joy could be heard for miles!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child- a book containing the script of the London play- is coming in July.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. It will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on 30th July 2016.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
David Shelley, CEO of Little, Brown Book Group said: “We are so thrilled to be publishing the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. J.K. Rowling and her team have received a huge number of appeals from fans who can’t be in London to see the play and who would like to read the play in book format – and so we are absolutely delighted to be able to make it available for them.”
We’ll keep you informed as more news comes to hand.
