So apparently I’m super late about this but J.K. Rowling is coming out with a new Harry Potter… Well, technically Jack Thorne is coming out with a new Harry Potter!
Harry Potter is returning!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, originally a play that would “explore the previously untold story of Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast; reimagined to follow Harry, now working for the Ministry of Magic and the struggles of his youngest son Albus Severus.
In September of 2015, J.K. Rowling announced the play would be in two parts; the parts are designed to be viewed on the same day or consecutively over two evenings. Promising a new story the plays set nineteen years after the end of the last novel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The Cursed Child opens at London’s Palace Theatre in July 2016!
More Info: The original concept of doing a stage play based on Harry Potter was initially pitched in December 2013, with the projected opening date sometime in 2016. Mission accomplished!
