Tonight sees the grand opening in London of the new stage production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,  based on an original story by the high witch of all fans and wizards alike, JK. Rowling.

The sold-out production is set 19 years after we last visited Harry and friends, in the final instalment of the seven book-series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The play centres on a now fully-grown Harry who is an overworked employee at the Ministry of Magic and father of three.

Harry must grapple with the difficulties of his past while his children, particularly his youngest Albus, come to terms with that legacy. A limited number of extra tickets will be released in August, but the London show is effectively sold out until May 2017.

If, however, you are one of the many Potter fans who are unable to apparate your way to the Palace Theatre in London to see the production, or find yourself lacking a port key, fear not as a published version of the script is also due to hit the shelves.

The accompanying script of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is also being published. The script is Amazon's top US pre-order on Kindle and in print and is Barnes and Noble's most pre-ordered book since 2007's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

After nine years of waiting Harry Potter fans now have a stage production, a published script and a new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to look forward to.

So grab yourself a butter beer, throw on an Invisibility Cloak and delve into the world of Potter magic once again.
