Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: J.K. Rowling reveals art for the play

Posted on

Earlier this summer, J.K. Rowling announced that a Harry Potter play was coming to the London stage. Now, we get the first look at the artwork for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, debuting on London’s West End in summer 2016. 

Pottermore released the official artwork for the two-part play with a short video featuring an image of a young boy sitting in a nest shaped like the Golden Snitch.

The play is based on an original story by Potter scribe Rowling, English TV writer Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, who won a Tony Award for Broadway’s Once. Though Rowling has said it’s not a prequel, it is set in the Potterverse.

“It will tell a new story,” Rowling wrote. “I don’t want to say too much more, because I don’t want to spoil what I know will be a real treat for fans.”
