It’s official news… Harry Potter has a new plot, and it will be coming to the stage of London’s West End from next year.
The stage production will be called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and will tell the story of his life that we have not yet heard, including the tale of his parent’s murder, although it is not a “prequel” apparently.
No doubt it will be a must-see for all those going to the UK next year, with the show launching in the UK Summer of 2016.
JK Rowling announced the show on Friday in the UK, on the 18th anniversary of the launch of the first book in the UK, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. very special day” – the 18th anniversary of when her debut book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was first published.
Rowling was reserved about releasing too much information on the show yet, saying that she didn’t… “want to say too much more, because I don’t want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans”.
She also answered the big question on all Potter-lovers lips…
“To answer one inevitable (and reasonable!) question – why isn’t Cursed Child a new novel? I am confident that when audiences see the play they will agree that it was the only proper medium for the story.”
Is this something you would want to go and see?
