‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ Script gets Release Date!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Read the eighth story a day after the official debut of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child two-part stage play!

Fans have been eagerly waiting for a release date ever since news regarding publishing houses showing interest in releasing the script of the play surfaced. Now, fans know exactly how long to wait in order to experience Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because a release date for the script has been revealed on Pottermore.

The script will be available on the 31st of July, 2016, a few moments after midnight. This makes the script’s release date a day after the play’s official debut, and on the same day as Harry Potter’s birthday. The first edition of the script has been entitled ‘Special Rehearsal Edition’. It will then be re-released as a ‘Definitive Collector’s Edition’ on a later date.

It will be published by Little, Brown in the UK, while Scholastic will publish it in the US, and Hachette in Australia. It will be available as an ebook through Pottermore.

I’m excited to get my hands on the new story because I definitely won’t be able to travel to London to watch the play live. Releasing the script a day after the play’s debut will also save a lot of fans from spoilers that are going to pop up. Fingers crossed we get an actual novel adaptation of the script as well.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will debut in London on the 30th of July, 2016 at the Palace Theatre, UK. It is the eighth installment in the famous fantasy franchise, and is written by Jack Thorne. The story is set nineteen years after the events that transpired in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It will focus on Harry Potter and his son Albus Severus Potter.

Fans of the franchise will also be getting the live-film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on November 18th. The year 2016 is all set to be a big one for Harry Potter fans!
