Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Script to Be Published as a Book

Good news, Potter fans! Scholastic and Little, Brown UK have a summer gift for us all! The script to the eighth story–Harry Potter and the Cursed Child–will be printed, bound, and available to read this July.

On July 31st this year (which happens to be the day after the show itself opens in the West End in London), Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be available to read in print. It’s not quite the same as seeing the show, but it will be nice for Potter fans everywhere to experience the story at the same time! And it might have some fun Easter eggs, since scripts are known to house little notes concerning character motivations and actions.

We can’t wait until July 31st! In case you forgot, here’s the play’s synopsis:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
