Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to be published in July

It was the Harry Potter play that caused controversy with its casting. J.K. Rowling proclaimed the play cannon and now it will all be made official when the book is published in July.

Both parts of J.K. Rowling’s script will be published by Little Brown UK on 31 July with online fansite Pottermore also publishing the e-book edition, The Bookseller has confirmed. The play itself will open at the Palace Theatre in the West End the day before.

The decision to publish the script was a result of “massive public demand”, especially from fans living overseas who wanted to share in the London-based excitement.

The storyline catches up with Harry, Ron and Hermione’s 19 years after the seventh book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, ended in 2007.

It’s an exciting time for Potter fans, with next year marking the 20th anniversary of first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Four new editions of the book will be released, with each one representing a different Hogwarts house.

Upcoming spin-off film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, about the magizoologist behind the key Hogwarts textbook, will reach UK cinemas on 18 November 2016.
