J.K. Rowling Has Answered Some Important Questions About The Upcoming "Harry Potter" Play

But we're still none the wiser, tbh.

Posted on

Earlier this year, author of the Harry Potter series and queen of our lives J.K. Rowling made a huge announcement... That there's going to be a Harry Potter play!

I'm also very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year.

She has confirmed that the play will tell a story completely separate from the original series, and that it's going to be "a real treat for fans".

So far, details of the play have been pretty mysterious – but we definitely know it's not going to be a prequel.

I can't remember whether I've mentioned this, but Harry Potter & the #CursedChild isn't a prequel.

Definitely. Not. A. Prequel.

You are getting very warm indeed when you say that it is *possible* that #CursedChild isn't a prequel.

But now we have some brand new information about Cursed Child, straight from JKR herself!

In one of her regular tweeting sprees, the author revealed that the "cursed child" in question is not Tom Riddle.

Good theory, because I do think Tom was cursed in the way that you suggest, but no, he's not the child.

But we do know who it is. Maybe.

Answering that would give away a huge amount. To quote Chris Cornell: "You know my name."

This is very cryptic, Jo.

At least we know that the cursed child definitely isn't this person.

No, you're just jinxed. It'll wear off by teatime.

Basically, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is still a huge mystery...
