Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Recommended Posts

Tyler   

Opening in London next summer.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Rowling is officially the George Lucas of children's literature.

No kidding. Yeesh.

Actually, it's more like another franchise I can think of, where the original film followed one set of rules and then the sequels got increasingly wacky as they followed an entirely different set of rules.

If this is the quality of J.K. Rowling's storytelling (indeed, script-writing) these days, then one worries for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
