Wizarding World, rejoice! The 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter series has in store a huge deal. For those witches and wizards who cannot be in London to watch the play, Hachette India is publishing the book, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ parts I and II.

The announcement came on Pottermore.com: “A host of new print and digital publishing has been announced from JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, including a special Rehearsal Edition of the script book of new stage play, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II’.”
