Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a play in the West End production consisting of two parts. There is also a book written by Jack Thorne based on a story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. The play is scheduled to open on July 30, 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London, England, and Rowling will work with an experienced production team to bring it on the stage. The play begins nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, and follows the life of Harry Potter, who is now an employee of the Ministry of Magic, and his youngest son Albus Severus Potter.

The play is directed by Tiffany, choreographed by Steven Hoggett, scenery of Christine Jones, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, lighting design by Neil Austin, Imogen Heap music and sound design by Gareth Fry. In addition, special effects will be created by Jeremy Chernick, with hopes of Jamie Harrison and musical supervision by Martin Lowe.

Premise

Being Harry Potter has never been easy, even less since he has become a very busy employee of the Ministry of Magic, a married man and father of three children.

While Harry stands up to a past that refuses to be left behind, his youngest son, Albus, has to fight the weight of a family inheritance that he has never wanted to know anything. When the destination connects the past with the present, the father and son must face an uncomfortable truth: sometimes, the darkness comes from the most unexpected places.

Cursed Child Movie?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be a trilogy but the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will not be adapted as a movie. The story, set after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, hit the boards in the West End of London this summer. However, British author J. K. Rowling has denied on Twitter that there are plans to bring it to the big screen. At least you can see it as a book, which is bought to stores since July 31, 2016.
