There's going to be an eighth 'Harry Potter' book, but it's just a printed script of 'The Cursed Child.'
Dreams do come true, though not always in their complete form. While prayers have been answered and an eighth Harry Potter installment will be hitting bookstores on July 31, the book won't be like its predecessors. As announced on Pottermore, the new release will be the script for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I and II, the Harry Potter play that's premiering on July 30.
This news is very welcome after the Cursed Child ticket debacle and the simple fact that many Harry Potter fans can't make their way to England for the play.
