Harry Potter fans mark your calendars. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – a new book and play based on an original new story by J.K Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany is about make its stage debut this summer at The Palace Theatre in London.
That’s great for those who plan on traveling overseas this summer, but for those of us staying on the mainland, the play will be released in book form on July 31, 2016.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
The eighth story in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child takes place nineteen years after “He who must not be named” was killed off in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
All our favorites characters are back: Harry, Hermione and Ron.
When we last saw them, they were at King’s Cross Station shipping their own kids off to their beloved Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which you can tour at Universal Studios Orlando in Florida or the brand new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – New Book
If you thought Harry Potter had issues before, wait until you read the new story. Harry Potter is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic. He’s married to Ginny Weasley and they have three school aged children. That doesn’t sound too horrible… but wait.
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 come together, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
The new Harry Potter Book retails for $17.99 on Amazon in hardback or $14.99 on Kindle. Click on the image below to place your order.
