Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
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 fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Look a band wagon! Let’s jump on… weeeeee. *cries uncontrollably in a corner still reading the first book.*
I have to get this! I don’t know if I want to re-read the series or not though.
I don’t know if I will get this. Ask me again after I’ve actually read the books haha.
Have you not read Harry Potter yet?
Nope. I think I read the first two chapters of Prisoner of Azkaban…
Wow! Glad I’m not the only late one then, lol. I’ve only read the series once, but have watched the movies a million times.
Oh haha yeah, I’ve watched the movies plenty of times too. But I’m going to get the books eventually… one day.
I’ve always wanted to read the books, but when they first came out I wasn’t a big reader. I was more interested in the movies.
Two years ago I had to read books one, three, and seven for a class I took. So I spent that summer reading the whole series because I didn’t want to read the books out of order like that.
Yeah when the movies came out, I tried to read the books but didn’t get around to it. Figured I’d get enough from the movies, but now I’m curious.
The books are worth it. The movies are SO different.
Am reading a book here, watching a movie there…no order to things whatsoever…and enjoying all tremendously as stand alones.
