J.K. Rowling Confirms Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Will Be Sad

Remember when J.K. Rowling said the 7th Harry Potter book would be a blood bath? Well, she's saying the same for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The play that will premiere in London next month, will also be published in the U.S. on July 31st. The author took to Twitter to respond to a fan asking about the content of the play.


After that, people weren't happy. I think it's probably a sign that someone major will die during the play, or perhaps we will find out someone has died between the end of the last book and now. I'm still not over Hedwig's death…

As expected, the fan reaction was harsh, but J.K. Rowling confidently replied…

Even though I don't want to see a favorite character suffer, I can definitely get on board with that statement. She's always been a fantastic writer. We'll have to get on board with whatever she decides.


This is definitely going to feel like a Potter filled year with the release of the the play, the play's book, and Wild Beasts and Where to Find Them in November. Cheers to that.
