Both parts of the stage production “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” — the official eighth story in J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster series — will be published in July as a script book, Scholastic and Pottermore announced this morning.

A “special rehearsal edition” will be released just after midnight on July 31  in the United States and Canada, to be replaced by a “definitive collector’s edition.”

Written by Rowling and Jack Thorne, “Cursed Child” picks up just after the epilogue of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” where an adult Harry waves off his children at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” opens July 30 at the Palace Theatre in London.

    I’ve been saying it ever since Year 7 came out…
    Back in Book 2, Tom Riddle, Voldemort’s Horcrux created a Horcrux as well.

    It says that he put a piece of his soul into Ginny.

    Ginny is now a Horcrux, and when she gave birth to the 3 kids, that Horcrux split again. There are still 4 Horcrux’s out there.

    In order to truly defeat Voldemort, Harry has to kill his kids and wife!

    I can see it now:
    “See everyone this is in book form now, this must mean that Hermione was black in the Hogwarts books!!”

    If J.K. hasn’t already then she will go back and change the wording in future editions of books 1-7 that clearly indicate Hermione being of Anglo descent.

    Those would be about one-sixteenth of a soul then. Doesn’t sound that menacing.
    And of course Tim Riddle never put his soul into Ginny. He possessed her and drained her life and he didn’t even succeed in this.

    I really doubt that Hermiones skin colour will be of any importance in the new story. It most likely won’t even be mentioned.

    This is amazing. I always knew that Rowling wasn’t done with the story and I still think this new book won’t be the last.

    Just one question: What exactly is a script book? Like a screenplay?

  • James Jarratt

    No it possibly won’t but people will try to make it matter.

    Honestly, I don’t think Hermione’s ethnicity is such a big deal. We got her white and black, as long as she has frizzy hair and she’s sassy and smart, it works for me, as Rowling herself said.

    Will just be the script to the play.

  • Drace90

    Well, that’s something.

    Is in this “book” Snape too? If isn’t, I don’t care the whole stuff.
