If you hadn’t already heard the news, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is the OFFICIAL eighth book in the series and I seriously couldn’t pre-order this quick enough. If you’re a die hard Potterhead I suggest you do so now. The script/book set nineteen years after the battle of Hogwarts, and lot can happen in that much time. So who knows what has happened to the golden trio since then? With J.K Rowling at the helm this is nothing but incredible news, but it doesn’t end there. Another exciting announcement is the confirmation of the Chamber of Secrets illustrated by the talented Jim Kay has also been set for October this year. To say I’m excited is the understatement of the century but I’m also slightly nervous. This is an introduction to the wizarding world for a whole new generation of young witches and wizards and that’s a huge burden to bear, but if anyone can do it Rowling can.
As we all know that J.K has a sweet spot for dear Harry so the release date for her new book has been made for the 31st of July which happens to be none other than Harry’s birthday. Alongside the big news are a few little peeks of what is to come for the upcoming year so keep your ears to the ground my fellow Potterheads.
