‘Harry Potter’ fans all over the world screamed both in joy and anguish when ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ was announced last year. A two-part West End show that’s a sequel to ‘Harry Potter’? It was quite a moment for Potterheads.
Though many Potter fans rejoiced, those who couldn’t afford the pricey tickets or the flight to London to see the play weren’t so overjoyed. Yesterday, those fans got some hope: the Rowling Library announced that two unnamed publishers are battling for the rights to publish the play!
They haven’t been allowed to release any more information, but this is good news! The play is set to run until at least May 2017 at the moment, but hopefully we’ll get the book a little earlier than previously thought.
BUT, please remember that this is still a rumour until Queen JK tells us otherwise. The mock up of the cover is one created by the Rowling Library and publishing is a long game – it could still be a little while until we here anything concrete. Of course, the second we at Maximum Pop! hear otherwise, we’ll let you know and join on you on the incoherent screaming.
