Calling all Potterheads. It's almost here. And by it, we obviously mean Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1 & 2, the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. Here's everything we know about it:
It's not so much a new novel as a script.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a play that's currently running in London. The book is a script of the stage production.
It wasn't written by J.K. Rowling--but she was involved.
The play was written by screenwriter and playwright Jack Thorne, based on a story dreamed up by Thorne, Rowling and John Tiffany.
It's still about Harry.
Specifically in his role as a husband and father in later years. It also focuses on Albus, Harry's youngest son, as he struggles with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.
All your faves (and not-so-faves) are back.
Including Harry (duh), Ron, Hermione, Ginny and dun-dun-dun....Draco Malfoy.
You can buy it on Sunday.
The book's being released on J.K. Rowling's birthday. HBD, J.K.!
It'll probably be turned into a movie.
Warner Bros. trademarked the name earlier this month, but don't expect a film adaptation anytime soon. Movie-making on this scale takes time, people.
