At least two publishers after The Cursed Child

By The Rowling Library on January 25, 2016. Mentions , , , .

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the upcoming two-part West End stage play scheduled to open in July 2016, set nineteen years after the end of Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, which will be about Harry Potter (now a Ministry of Magic employee) and his son Albus Potter. Considered to be the sequel of the Harry Potter books, most fans are worried because they will not be able to experience it since it is only available for those who can visit London. However, the big hope of getting the play script published as a book was latent since the announcement.

And there seems to be good news now. Our sources have informed that at least two publishers are trying to get the rights to publish the script play. Remember it is not a J.K. Rowling’s work, given the play is written by Jack Thorne and he will probably be listed as the author – which is an important fact to be considered in the negotiations.

This is all we know so far – but two publishers negotiating to get the publishing rights is a good sign and almost a confirmation that we will have Harry Potter and the Cursed Child published as a book.

We have been asked to keep the name of the publishers to ourselves.
