J.K. Rowling’s New Project Is a Play Titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I have so many questions

This morning, on the 18th anniversary of her first Harry Potter publication, J.K. Rowling announced on Twitter that a new HP project is in the works! A play, titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is set to hit London theaters next year. Rowling seems very excited about the project, although she’s trying to keep details secret.


She has, however, revealed that it is not a prequel to the book series.

“But why a play?” you ask as you weep into your pillow because you’re not in London or even near London. Well, Rowling didn’t think the material suited a book.

Rowling will be working with Sonia Friedman, writer Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany, which she calls her “dream team.” People are already asking who the stage actors will be. Daniel Radcliffe has plently of theater experience, as does much of the movie cast, so it would be great to see them return to their roles.

For those of us who can’t make it let’s make plans to watch A Very Potter Musical for the fifteenth time?
