The story will feature an aged Harry Potter grappling with his past.
After it was announced that author JK Rowling’s will be writing another book which will let people know what when Potter left Hogwarts, her ardent fans were, however, disappointed that the new story will only be rendered on stage, rather than in print.
Those ardent fans can heave a sigh of relief now. The script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, parts one and two will be published in the form of a book this summer. The new Harry Potter book is the first from JK Rowling’s in eight years. It will be available for fans on the day of Harry Potter’s birthday: July 31st. Harry Potter part 8 will be available at exactly 12:00 on the date.
It will not be a novel unlike the expectations of the fans, but cater to those who want to know about the sequel and are not able to get tickets to the theatrical rendition of the production which will officially open on July 30. The script of the play is written by JK Rowlings, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is regarded as the 8th story in the immensely popular series. It is set 19 years after the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in which the protagonist and his friends managed to save Hogwarts and the wizards from the evil magic of Lord Voldemort.
A description of the new story suggests that being Harry Potter wasn’t never actually an easy thing. But it has become more difficult now since he is an overworked employee in the Magic Ministry. He is married and has three young school-going children.
Harry Potters past does not stay put, and his son Albus is forced to grapple with a legacy that he never craved. Between the fusion of the past and the present, Harry and his son learn that the darkness can come from quite unexpected places.
There were rumors circulating among Harry Potter fans that a book was being published. JK Rowling’s revealed on her fansite that at least two famous publishers were showing interest in buying the rights to the script of the play.
