The Harry Potter movies are (arguably) some of the most influential films of the 21st century. The epic story of boy meets wizard continues with the upcoming release of the hugely anticipated Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which will be premiered at the London Film Festival on September 10th. The Cursed Child is an all-new story set two decades after the original Harry Potter series. Bookish Potter fans will be able to read the story as it was published in 2016 – in one go, thus making it the perfect present (or birthday gift) for fans of J.K. Rowling.
Whether you’re a devoted Harry Potter fan or a newcomer to the series, it’s worth considering how you might want to spend your time leading up to the premiere of the novel. With so much excitement in store, it’s time to dust off those wands and get ready to wave them over a screen (or book) near you.
