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!
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
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.
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.
Hey there, #PotterHeads!! You’ve probably heard about Harry Potter & the Cursed Child becoming a play over in London, and if you’re anything like me, you’re probably disappointed that the chances of you catching that play are slim to none!
In the wake of Alan Rickman’s passing, J.K. Rowling paid tribute to the man who gave her professor Severus Snape life on screen for a decade. In addition to the heartbreaking tweet above, she also honored Rickman’s family.
