It’s been announced recently J.K. Rowling has written a new installment to the Harry Potter series that will also be a play.
The book release is July 31.
Many Potter fans have been begging for a new book and J.K. Rowling responded back with a new book called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”
The only clue the author gave readers is the “Cursed Child” picks up 19 years after Lord Voldemort was vanquished, which is where Rowling left off in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”
Harry Potter has been one of the most successful franchises ever created bringing in around $25 billion for films, toys and books.
That’s not all that’s new from Rowling.
Warner Brothers Pictures is also releasing the Rowling-written “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” in November.
This film is based on a textbook in the Harry Potter movies that the lead character and his friends Ron and Hermione had to read.
This film is the beginning of a new trilogy of the wizarding world and said to be a spin-off/ prequel to the Harry Potter Series.
Many fans thought “Deathly Hallows” was the end of Harry Potter and were sad it ended so quickly but looking at the dates the books were published the first Book came out in 1997 and the last came out in 2007. The films came out later, the first one being released in 2001 and the last one in 2011.
Fans of Harry Potter couldn’t let go of the series, seeing how much they loved it and how it was more than just a story to them.
Why do many people like these types of books and films?
“The way J.K. Rowling writes is very like she takes you in and allows you like to be part of the story and I think that’s really exciting and its also just a really fun series” said Julie Roberts.
Many fans have said it has a “rich imagination” and that the characters are “very complicated, heroic, and change drastically in the series.”
A majority of the fans said that’s what they read during their childhood and couldn’t stop reading because it was a new experience and a new world that’s never before seen.
“It’s just like something I grew up with so I guess I kind of started watching them and reading them” said Robert Acoba.
Fans don’t know what to expect for her new book in the Harry Potter series but are excited and hope that it will be as good as the others.
Seeing all the new things that Rowling is giving to her fans has given hope for them to explore more of the wizarding world and to see whether her imagination has something new for us.
