Good news for you Harry Potter fans out there. The queen herself (JK Rowling, that is) recently announced an upcoming addition to the beloved series: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” Now before you readers out there get too excited, it’s not a book…
I'm also very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year.

The stage production is set to begin showing next summer and will be delivered in two parts instead of one, a first for a theater productions. The bad news about all of this?

This also comes along as news of a new Pottermore update surfaced. For you muggles out there, Pottermore is an online experience that gives life to the novels in an interactive way. Rowling’s update included some very interesting information about Harry Potter’s linage.
The shows are so far only scheduled at London’s West End meaning if you want to see this, you’d better start planning an English vacation.
For more information about the play you can check out http://www.HarryPotterThePlayLondon.com. Bookings have already started for the shows so I can bet this will be a very popular event!
