J.K. Rowling Announces Stage Play 'Harry Potter & The Cursed Child' Will Open In London Next Year!!

J.K. Rowling has officially announced that a brand new Harry Potter stage play will be opening in London’s West End next year!

“Today is a very special day for two reasons. Firstly, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published in the UK 18 years ago,” the 49-year-old author wrote on her Twitter account. “I’m also very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year.”

“It will tell a new story, which is the result of a collaboration between writer Jack Thorne, director John Tiffany and myself. I don’t want to say too much more, because I don’t want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans,” J.K. continued. “However, I can say that it is not a prequel! To answer one inevitable (and reasonable!) question – why isn’t #CursedChild a new novel? – I am confident that when audiences see the play. They will agree that it was the only proper medium for the story. I’ve had countless offers to extend Harry’s story over the years, but Jack, John and Sonia Friedman are a dream team! It has been a huge pleasure to share with them (and soon, with you!) this untold part of Harry’s story.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the new play coming to London?

J.K. Rowling Reveals More 'Harry Potter' Backstory About the Dursley Family

J.K. Rowling updated Pottermore with some new information about the Dursley family from her famous Harry Potter book series.

In the new piece, the author writes that the Dursley family is, “reactionary, prejudiced, narrow-minded, ignorant and bigoted; most of my least favorite things.”

Concerning Aunt Petunia and Harry’s final goodbye in the series, J.K. says she wanted “something decent (a long-forgotten but dimly burning love of her sister; the realisation that she might never see Lily’s eyes again) almost struggled out of Aunt Petunia” during the moment, “but that she is not able to admit it, or show those long buried feelings.”

J.K. also explained lots of back story about the family, including a disastrous first meeting between Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon and Lily and James Potter. James and Vernon immediately did not get along.

It’s also revealed that Vernon hated Harry because he looked so much like his father.

J.K. also wrote about how she named the characters of Vernon and Petunia. Vernon was “a name I never much cared for”, and Petunia “the name that I always gave unpleasant female characters in games of make believe I played with my sister, Di, when we were very young.”
