Harry Potter Fans, You're Going To Be Able To Buy The "Cursed Child" Script

31 July cannot come quick enough.

Posted on

It's been about eight months since it was announced that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a play following the life of Harry's youngest son, would be hitting West End stages in mid-2016.

Warner Bros. / Pottermore

While Potter fans were obviously excited about the announcement, there seemed to be one prevailing response:

ok here's the thing. it would be wildly unfair & dickish if cursed child is not distributed. it better be released as a script or recording

If they don't at least release copies of the cursed child script i'm going to be so upset

The people demanding Cursed Child be streamed to cinemas and the script released as a book do get there is NO WAY this won't happen, yeah?

People who won't be able to get to London to see the play IRL really, really wanted a published version of the script.

Well, want no more, Potter fans. Because guess what?

Yep! It was just announced on Twitter that the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script will be published by the Little, Brown Book Group, and is set for release on 31 July this year.

Warner Bros.

(That's the birthday of both J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter, in case you didn't know.)

And, of course, people are very, very happy with the news.

CURSED CHILD SCRIPT BOOK IN SCREAMING IM SO RESDY

so happs that they're realising the cursed child script as a book. i can basically pretend i'm still a harry potter obsessed 7yo forever

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD HARRY AND THE CURSED CHILD SCRIPT WILL BE PUBLISHED AS A BOOK THERE WILL BE AN ACTUAL WRITTEN SEQUEL HELP ME

If that doesn't prove 2016 is set to be the year of Harry Potter, nothing will.

Warner Bros.

31 July seriously can't come fast enough. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
