It’s a big year for the Harry Potter franchise. With the new Wizarding World area having just opened at Universal Studios Hollywood, the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” film adaptation hitting theaters in November, and the all-new stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” opening in London’s West End theater district at the end of July, everyone is talking about the boy wizard and his magical adventures.
Now “Potter” creator/author J.K. Rowling has begun sharing more details on the “Cursed Child” production process: she revealed via Twitter a design sketch for the main characters’ new wands:
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is a two-part stage play written by Jack Thorne and based on a new story by Rowling herself. It picks up nineteen years after the end of the main story in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” and follows Harry’s adventures in raising his son Albus Severus Potter. The play’s script will also be available in book form, for anyone who can’t make it to London to witness the excitement in person.
“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will open at London’s Palace Theatre on July 30th.
