Harry Potter… Book 8?! It’s happening!

Harry Potter 8

More Potter! It was bound to happen… there’s a new Harry Potter book! While it’s the eighth story in the canon, it’s not what you’re probably expecting. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is based on the upcoming stage production. According to Comic Book Resources (who got it from Pottermore) the “script book” version will be released on July 31, 2016 in the United States and Canada.

From CBR…

Both parts of the stage production “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” — the official eighth story in J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster series — will be published in July as a script book, Scholastic and Pottermore announced this morning.

What say you, Potter fans? Is this a good thing, or would you have preferred a proper eighth Harry Potter novel? And how long until a movie adaptation is announced?

While we wait, let’s all sing along to the best Harry Potter fan film ever made…

Godspeed, Alan Rickman.
