Here’s the “Harry Potter” in another round of magic – in the struggle with darkness and parents. We already wrote about setting up the eight part as a play but now the author decided to publish it as a book as well.

This time, Harry as a father is struggling with his own son. The eighth part of the famous series, which is already set up as two-part play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will be published in about half year as a book, and it will be written by the J. K. Rowling. The special trial edition of the book will be available from July 31, the day after they start playing shows in London.

“J.K. Rowling and her team have received a huge number of appeals from fans who can’t be in London to see the play and who would like to read the play in book format – and so we are absolutely delighted to be able to make it available for them.” said David Shelley, CEO Little, Brown Book Group. Harry Potter was seen for the last time saying goodbye to their children on the Platform Nine and Three Quarters, 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts, in the epilogue of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”


Book “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” happens after this scene, where the father of three children, Harry Potter, who works in the Ministry of Magic along with his son Albus fight for their family heritage against the forces of darkness. The electronic book will be published simultaneously with the print edition. This limited edition will not be final because it will be allowed to shift parts of the creative team. Bestsellers Rowling – 7 novels published from 1997- to 2007 have sold over 450 million copies worldwide.
