J.K. Rowling is publishing 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' as a book
J.K Rowling's Harry Potter sequel may be a stage play, but that doesn't mean you can't read it at home.
On July 31, Rowling will publish the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in print and ebook format, making the story accessible to everyone who can’t make it to the theatrical version in London’s West End.
Pottermore announced Wednesday that Rowling will publish a “special rehearsal edition” of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which takes place nine years after the seventh Harry Potter book, and stars a new cast of adult actors as Harry, Ron, and Hermione. The first edition comes out shortly after the play’s London premiere, and will later be updated with a “definitive collector’s edition.” (Like most new plays, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child may go through some minor changes during its preview period, before its official opening.)
