A few months ago, we shared the exciting news that the official 8th story in the Harry Potter saga was on its way. Well, the wait is now over: As of today (Harry Potter’s birthday), the Special Rehearsal Edition of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now available!
If you recall, this is a printing of the full script for the new Cursed Child stage play in London, which follows the lives of Harry and his family 19 years after the main action in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. At first, we thought only those lucky enough to watch the play would be able to see what unfolds, but thanks to this printing, wizards and witches all over the world (including us!) can now catch up with the Boy Who Lived.
Let’s all do a Dumbledore dance of joy!
Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of our systems…
If you want to see how some other Potterheads celebrated the occasion, check out this video from Scholastic, the American publishers of the Harry Potter books. We both used to work there, but sadly, we left way before The Cursed Child came about. So we were not part of this “MuggleMob” — although we wish we could have been!
So, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, what are YOU doing to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Did you attend a midnight release party? Did you clear your calendar for today in order to read uninterrupted? Are you wearing any gear to show your house pride? Leave a comment and share your Cursed Child activities!
And obviously, please share your thoughts on the book too! (But please, no spoilers! We haven’t finished reading it yet. Speaking of which… gotta go!)
