Attention Muggles: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to be Eighth Book

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 22:40:33 UTC by Perry Sanders III

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II will be released on 31 July, the day after the play has debuted on stage.

The play is from an original new story by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.

It sees Harry as a father and an overworked Ministry of Magic employee.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will tell the "untold" part of the boy wizard's story, including the story of the lives of his murdered parents, Rowling has said.

It will pick up the story 19 years after Harry was last seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, waving his two eldest children off to Hogwarts.

While the new book is purely a playwright, fans are hoping that there may be a movie to come from it.
