If you’re a Harry Potter fanatic who’s struggled to fill the immense void left when the final movie based on author J.K Rowling‘s main book series came and went almost five years ago now, you’re probably pretty excited these days. Not only is there a new movie on the way later this year, but a new stage play that will actually continue the story of Potter himself titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is also set to open this summer.
Unfortunately for most fans, they won’t get to see said stage play—at least not when it’s first released, anyway—because it’s being performed in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre. Perhaps it will do well and eventually branch out, but those anxious to take in this new story aren’t going to want to wait, anxiously hoping they’ll get to see the play someday. Thankfully, and very smartly, it’s been revealed that there will be another (quite fitting) way for fans to enjoy Cursed Child: as a new book.
