We knew Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was opening as a play in London this summer, which is amazing and exciting and so very cool, but also...kind of sucky for those of us who cannot get themselves to London this summer. We hoped that the play would be recorded, broadcast in theaters, eventually made available for those of elsewhere, something, but it still kind of sucked. And even though I fully believe J.K. Rowling when she said this story had to be told on stage, I was just sad because books are uniquely portable magic, and we all want that Harry Potter magic.
And now this!
I'm delighted. I'm also ridiculously happy that I re-read all of the Harry Potter books last month. I've been thinking about another re-read, so maybe this release gives me another excuse? Now that I know I can get through them all in 23 days? July can just be Harry Potter month.
Now, off to work to figure out how soon I can pre-order my copy...
