So this happened
And the bookish Internet was like
The Cursed Child is a script book print edition of the play coming to London this summerabout Harry’s son. But we’re all just calling it HP #8
Now, I’m a big Harry Potter fan
But. . .I feel like every time a new Harry Potter (Wizarding World) book comes out it’s just about generating more revenue. Like, with The Cursed Child fans can either buy the Special Rehearsal Edition script before the play debuts or the Definitive Collector’s Edition after the debut.
On the other hand I do like that they’ve taken a premium product, the play, and packaged in a way where more people have access to it.
So I have mixed feelings. But I know I’ll eventually read it. I really hope it lives up to the hype
P.S If you haven’t seen A Very Potter Musical. . . The other Harry Potter musical you must! It’s a little quirky but the music, dancing and writing is amazing. They *know* HP fans ! It’s on YouTube. GO GO GO
