What You Should Know About ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ Before Its Release

Young wizards and witches have long been waiting for a new story to come out of the magical universe J.K. Rowling created with the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s (or Philosopher’s, if you’re in the U.K.) Stone nearly two decades ago.
This weekend, there’s no more need to practice your accio manuscript spells, as the wait for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be over. Here’s what you need to know about the new story before its July 31 release.
This isn’t a new Harry Potter novel — it’s a play script.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts I and II” is a play currently running in London’s West End. When rumors of an eighth Harry Potter book release started circulating on social media, J.K. Rowling was quick to clarify that the new release would be a script of the London stage production, not a novel.
The play was written by Jack Thorne, a screenwriter and playwright who’s worked on the U.K. series “Skins” and “Shameless.” The production is based on a story dreamed up by Thorne, Rowling and John Tiffany. It will run in London through 2017 (it was recently extended through the end of next year, so book your plane tickets now) and received positive reviews from early theatergoers when it previewed this summer. Thanks to a #KeeptheSecrets campaign led by Rowling, few spoilers have been publicized — so you’ll just have to pick up a copy to see what happens.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
