comScore Rowling: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Isn't a Prequel" | The Mary Sue

J.K. Rowling Would Like You to Know Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Is NOT a Prequel

"Prequel. A. Not. It's."


Rumors are running rampant that J.K. Rowling’s new Harry Potter stage theatre project might end up being a prequel focused on Harry’s parents at Hogwarts. In a series of tweets from yesterday, she calmly Expelliarmuses those rumors.

How hard is that to understand?

Either way, now we’re super excited to find out what the plot is going to be. We won’t have too long to wait, as the show is supposed to premiere at London’s West End Theatre before Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters next November.
