    "Harry Potter" Fans Held A #MuggleMob In New York City To Celebrate "The Cursed Child"

    The countdown begins.

    Harry Potter fans only have to wait 10 more days to devour the eighth story in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two (Special Rehearsal Edition Script).

    Some people have been lucky enough to see the show in London, but most of us are waiting patiently to find out what exactly goes down in this sequel.

    In honor of the script's upcoming release, Scholastic held a special event today in front of their New York City offices where Harry Potter fans gathered and held something called a Muggle Mob.
