The Cursed Child to be released as 8th book this summer!

It’s got the confirmation tweets from pottermore and the publishing company, so now everyone can know the story of Albus Severus Potter. And get a little insight to the adult lives of our fave characters! And just to clarify, the article says they’re publishing the SCRIPT. As in the plays script. So I’m not entirely sure it’s going to be novel format. I think its literally just going to be the play. But I dont know!

Scholastic, Little Brown UK to Publish “Cursed Child” Script this Summer!

Only a couple of weeks ago, we were cautiously optimistic that “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” would be published as a book sooner than we had originally hoped, meaning that those fans unable to make the trip to London to see the show wouldn’t be missing out on reading the next chapter of Harry’s (and Albus’) story. Now, we have confirmation – the full script of “Cursed Child” WILL be published this summer!


“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” tie-in book announced; illustrated Chamber of Secrets to release in October

J.K. Rowling announced a slew of new titles that will take place in Rowling’s Wizarding World. In addition to dropping the release dates for a few of their anticipated projects - Jim Kay’s illustrated Chamber of Secrets will hit shelves this October, while new additions of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard will release in 2017  - Rowling announced that there will be a book edition of her new play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.“

The book edition of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is a ”Special Rehearsal Edition“ of the play script at the time of the preview performances that will publish this July in print and digital editions simultaneously.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is set nineteen years after the last chapter of Deathly Hallows – not 19 years after the epilogue – and follows Harry, who is working at the Ministry of Magic, and his youngest son Albus Severus Potter, who is struggling with his family’s legacy. Jamie Parker will play Harry Potter. Paul Thornley will play Ron Weasley. Noma Dumezweni will play Hermione Granger – the first canonical interpretation of a black Hermione.

2017 is also the twentieth anniversary of the U.K. publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and to celebrate, four special editions of the first book will publish in U.K. to correlate to each of the four Hogwarts houses.

Are you ready?

I am!!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany

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.

Release date July 31st
