Potterheads across the world, there's something you should know about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: it's not going to be a movie. From the official Twitter of J. K. Rowling herself:
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will debut in London's West End - tickets available here - and will be a two-part play. It's not a prequel, and it's definitely not a movie. The plot follows Harry in adulthood as he works as an Auror for the Ministry of Magic while also raising his three children. The synopsis is as follows:
“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.”
I mean, maybe one day it'll be a movie... Preferably when Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson are appropriately aged up and they can play their own adult selves...
Stepping away from my mildly creepy Harry Potter daydreams for a second, let's focus on the second part of J. K.'s statement: there will be THREE Fantastic Beasts movies. If you've missed the trailer for the first part, starring Eddie Redmayne as the irrepressible Newt Scamander, check it out. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters November 18, 2016.
