There’s a lot of mis-information about the new Harry Potter script being published as a book this coming summer, so author J.K. Rowling is offering up some clarification!

First, the 50-year-old writer addressed that it is not a new “Harry Potter” book. It is a script of the new Harry Potter play, being published in book form. The script is titled, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II.

“To be clear! The SCRIPT of #CursedChild is being published. #NotANovel #NotAPrequel 😉,” J.K. tweeted.

She also wanted to address that the book is not a prequel to the story.

“The script will be in book form, true, but it’s still #NotAPrequel because it’s set #19YearsLater,” she wrote on her Twitter account. She also clarified that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the prequel to Harry Potter.

Julianne Hough Says Her Fiance Brooks Laich is Her 'Leading Man'

Julianne Hough Says Her Fiance Brooks Laich is Her 'Leading Man'

Julianne Hough poses with her dog Lexi on the cover of Redbook magazine’s March 2016 issue, on newsstands February 16.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Grease: Live! star shared with the mag:

On telling it like it is: “When I was 21, I did and said things because I wanted to be accepted. But there’s a point where you grow up. Now I’m much more honest with myself and other people.”

On her fiance Brooks Laich being her “leading man”: Because of the nature of my career, it’s very easy for me to call the shots and ‘be the man’. So it’s very nice to feel like a strong woman and still have my man be my leading man.

On embracing the good and bad times: “I’ve always been positive. But trust me, I have my days when I just break down and cry—and I don’t even know why I’m crying! I’m all about embracing those times, too. If you never feel sad about anything, there’s nothing dynamic to life—and that’s boring.”
