J.K. Rowling to revive Harry Potter in new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
J. K. Rowling has revealed that she is to revive Harry Potter in a new play titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which will hits the stage next year.
Rowling had announced back in 2013 that she was helping to develop a stage production based on Harry Potter's early years and has now confirmed that it will be on stage in London's West End next year.
The author confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "I'm very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year. It will tell a new story, which is the result of a collaboration between writer Jack Thorne, director John Tiffany and myself. I don't want to say too much more, because I don't want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans. It has been a huge pleasure to share with them (and soon, with you!) this untold part of Harry's story."
She also confirmed that the play would not be a prequel.
Rowling is currently working on the scripts for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, the new movie spin-off from Harry Potter.
The first film in the trilogy, which will star Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterson, is due to hit cinemas as soon as November 18th 2016, with two sequels dated for 2018 and 2020 already.
