Harry Potter is back to live another day.
According to J.K Rowling’s Pottermore website the eighth instalment of the Harry Potter series, the two-part play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, will be published as a book this winter. This time round Harry, a staff member at the Ministry of Magic, is struggling with his son.
“Readers and moviegoers last saw Harry waving off his children at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, in the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picks up after that moment and is staged in two parts, due to the ‘epic nature of the story’,” the website says.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to open as a play in London’s West End in the Northern Hemisphere summer.
The announcement comes almost 20 years after the release of Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone. It is almost 10 years since the final book in the series was published.
