J.K. Rowling Clarifies Rumors About 'Harry Potter & the Cursed Child'

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.
