It has been nine years since the then ‘last’ book of the Harry Potter series released. I, being a massive Potterhead, was crying my heart out as I thought that the last film would put a period on the fantasy world that shaped my childhood, I couldn’t be more wrong! The eighth book (theatre script adaptation) of the legendary Harry Potter series hits the stores on the 31st of July which is also Harry’s birthday.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a two-part West End stage play written by Jack Thorne, based on a story by her majesty, J. K. Rowling. A preview of the play has happened in London, but the play opens in London and US on 31st too. Those of us cannot make it to London have to do with reading the book until there is an online release of the play. The eighth book takes from where the seventh, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow left us. The official story line is: Harry Potter is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.
It has been a long wait and as the city of joy gets ready for the book launch, with various events around the city, fans can’t wait to get into the Wizarding World, once more.(as if we ever left it!)
