A new book from the world of Harry Potter will be released on July 31, 2016. The book is a print version of the script for a London play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, which opens on July 30. The play will follow Harry Potter’s life after the ending of the seventh novel, which concludes¬†nineteen years after the battle of Hogwarts. “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is the first book in the Harry Potter series to be presented on stage. The book released on July 31st is not the final script of the play, so another book with the final script will be released at a later date. The first seven books in the Harry Potter series sold over 450 million copies worldwide, so needless to say, Harry Potter fans around the world are excited for the new book’s release.
