Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II by Jack Thorne, JK Rowling & John Tiffany
How that’s a long title, but we are used to it in the Harry Potter world.
I wanted to touch base regarding the latest Harry Potter story. The one after. After those 19 years that pass since the end of the main series. We all loved that last part of the last Harry Potter novel. An ending filled with hope.
So J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany went back and made the jump into the theatre with Harry Potter in mind. Interesting, right. And the whole world waited and held their breaths. And something interesting came of it. As the actual play is booked I think at least a year in advance, I had to see what was going to happen next. So I got the screenplay of course.
I had just finished all the novels from the main story, and the mini book/stories JK Rowling wrote to make the world of Harry Potter a bit more clear and compelling so I was ready.
And I have to admit it was not what I had expected. Interesting indeed. The same world, the same lovely characters. And it was amazing to see them again in action. I have to admit the spin on the story was innovative and very much inspired by the original world we all fell in love with.
And as we are all curious, the chance to see what happened next is irresistible. So we travel with Harry’s son into the past to try to help. But of course, that gets a bit more complicated. What I loved was the development of the characters we know; Harry, Ron, Hermione, Draco, Neville and the others. It was so much fun to see them out of school and see how they managed to get on with their lives after the dramatic and traumatic school years.
It was interesting for sure. Same JK Rowling taste on a new (continued) adventure up to Hogwarts. Let me know if you picked it up or went to the play; how was it?
