JK Rowling Says the Much Speculated Harry Potter Story Is Coming Soon!

Yes, you read the title right, there is going to be a continuation of the Harry Potter universe. Unfortunately, it’s going to be a play however and not the film that most of us would probably have preferred. However, this doesn’t take away from the amazing fact that we’re getting more Potter fiction that will delve us once again back into the world of Hogwarts and Station 9 3/4 and such.

So What’s The Story?

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ is to be the name of the new play that will likely go straight to Broadway and the West End and the biggest stages in the world. The story behind the exciting play is the continuation of the children of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. It shall follow Albus Severus Potter through a journey that will likely have him encounter new enemies, obviously new friends and likely a journey similar to the greatness of his father.

J.K. Rowling has also said on her blog that the plays will also follow Harry’s life after the moment we see in the last film where he’s dropping his children off at the station. It’s an interesting idea and of course, we are incredibly interested to see where Rowling will take the story after having killed off the most powerful villain wizard in history.

She’s also gone on to tweet that the film will be set 19 years after the end of the last film, making Harry into his 30s and officially a grown up wizard now. Let’s hope that doesn’t just mean he’ll be fighting the combatants of being a parent. However, that does suggest his son will also likely be in his twenties or maybe even thirties as he looked to be around 11-12 already.

So How’s This All Come Together?

J.K. Rowling has also stated on Twitter that one of the only reasons she has brought Harry Potter back is the simple fact that the team that offered up the idea are “dream team” in her words. This not only suggests that the story isn’t going to be a forced one but it also suggests she has true faith that writer Jack Thorne, director John Tiffany and herself will do the franchise justice on the big stage.
