Harry Potter and The Cursed Child
Finally we have learned what the 8th part of Harry Potter will be about. Since J.K. Rowling announced that she was doing a prequel,fans of the series got excited, they thought she back to writing a new book in the series but than she announced that it would in a form of a play. At this point I feel that the fans including myself were let down because not only is it a play but also will only be in London, at least for now.
When she did announce that this was a prequel, I was confused because there was truly nothing going on in Harry’s life from the time his parents died and until he found out he was a wizard, so why make it a prequel? I know she is a brilliant writer, so i knew she would rethink this idea and sure enough she rethought about it and just recently announced that this story would take place 19 years after THE DEATHLY HALLOWS.
Here is what we know so far about the plot because this is what she gave us. “IT was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic. a husband and father of three. While Harry grapples with the past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus mus struggle withe weight of the family legacy that he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth. darkness comes from unexpected places”.
Could Harry go to the dark side? or will his son join the dark side? Two very good questions, the fans could be wondering. Honestly, I can see both questions being answered and here’s why. Every since Harry found out he was a wizard he has had a nag for adventure and honestly after he’s greatest adventure what has Harry done since? This thought alone could drive him away from the famous Harry Potter that we came to love. The fame alone could have gone to his head to make him change. Now as for his son. He could want to create his own legacy instead of being compared to his father which is a big legacy to live up. So he may branch out to start his own regardless if it is good or bad.
I really hope J.K. Rowling turns this into a book because I would love to read an I won’t be able to see the play, i guess we will have to wait and see when the play opens in the summer of next year .
