J.K. Rowling Announces New “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” for 2016


In a stream of late night tweets (for American fans at least), celebrated author and philanthropist J.K. Rowling has confirmed that a new Harry Potter story will premiere in 2016…but it won’t be on film.

The new play will no doubt break box office records in what will be a banner year for Potter fans. This new play featuring Harry himself, plus the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film trilogy starring Eddie Redmayne, and the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. It’s a great time to be a wizard!

As the play will be a huge success in London, we hope to see it replicated on Broadway and on tour in the United States as soon as 2017.
