The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on July 30, 2016.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
This blurb (I love using that word!) came from Scholastic: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
But this isn't all the Harry Potter news I had:
J.K. Rowling Announces American Wizarding School?
- Mahoutokoro - You guessed it: JAPAN!
- Uagadou - Africa!!!
- Durmstrang Institute - Probably somewhere in Europe; uknown whereabouts
- Ilvermorny - COMING SOON (is this the American wizarding school? Hmm...?)
- Beauxbatons Academy of Magic - Somewhere in Pyrenees
- Castelobruxo - Brazilian school that takes students from all over South America
Currently, there are seven wizarding schools that are known, but eleven of them exist. Where could the others be???
Alrighty! That's pretty much all the Harry Potter news I have for today (well, other than that the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie is going to be put into three movies, but other than that.....)! Tell, what did you find the most interesting or exciting? Tell us in the comments!
