New Harry Potter Updates!
Who hasn’t been talking about J.K. Rowling’s newest addition to the Harry Potter world?? The last week word has been spreading like wild fire about the 8th instalment, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I’m going to go over some good to know information about this addition and even provide links for pre-ordering plus some cool extras that have been in the works!
So first off, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I and II is not a novel like the original series we all know and love. It is actually written to be a London play, in which Rowling paired up with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany to prepare the script that continues from where the last book left off – 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts. If only I lived in London to see the play … So if you’re like me and won’t see London anytime soon, will this mean we will have to read a script to get the story? No – not entirely. Rowling has created a script turned novel so that the content is the same as the play, but is more seamless like a novel would be. Great news! Now let’s talk about some important dates… July 30th of this year we will be able to start reading the Special Rehearsal Addition of the script book. Later this addition will not be available and will be replaced by the Definitive Collectors Addition. There really isn’t too much information out right now, but the Collectors Addition will probably have slightly altered content throughout the story as they tweak changes to the play.
Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts I and II can actually be pre-ordered now so that you have access to it as soon as it is available.. Here is the link for pre-ordering: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child , Parts I & II
More Exciting Potter News and Updates …
New Illustrated editions of all 7 books are being released with massive amounts of illustration by Jim Kay. These illustrations are very extraordinary. Kay as an imagination that not only follows the stories, but enhances them. Definitely a must have in the Potter collection. The first book is actually already finished and can be ordered here Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter, Book 1)
I haven’t been able to locate a release date for the other 6 books yet, but will be on the lookout for when they do.
Coming in 2017…
- Four special editions of the first Harry Potter book will be coming out, one edition for each Hogwarts House. How freaking awesome is this??

I am so excited about all of these new and upcoming Harry Potter additions, along with many other Potter fans! J.K. Rowling has done a fantastic job of keeping the magic of Harry Potter alive. Not only can you now find bars, coffee shops and theme parks to continue the stories, but these new text additions really allow imagination to thrive.
