Den sidste Harry Potter bog udkom I 2007, og nu er karaktererne og universet, med så mange hengivne fans verden over, tilbage. Titlen er denne gang ”Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, og bogen er dermed den ottende om Harry, der lever i en magisk parallelverden til det samfund vi ellers kender. Ny udgivelsen adskiller sig dog denne gang ved, ikke at ligge direkte i forlængelse af de tidligere bøger. Derimod foregår den 19 år ud i fremtiden, hvor Harry er blevet voksen, og har kone og børn.
”Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” er baseret på manuskriptet fra den første officielle teaterforestilling om Harry Potter. Af samme grund er dette en ”special rehersal edition”, hvor J.K. Rowling har to medforfattere i form af John Tiffany og Jack Thorne. Den endelige udgave først udkommer i starten af 2017, hvor denne særudgave derfor vil gå ud af handlen.
Der er dog ikke tvivl om, at ”Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” igen vil være med til at tryllebinde fans globalt.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 2016. 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 schoolage children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
“Harry Potter and the cursed child” is a new book about Harry Potter, but it is different from the other seven books. This book is about Harry’s life after Hogwarts and the epic battle against the dark forces. Nineteen years have passed and Harry is now grown up working at the Ministry of Magic.
His family is bigger now and he have both wife and kids. This begs the questions; how does he and his family move on from the events at Hogwarts? This is tricky and it is not simplified by the trivial problems they have to deal with. Especially Harry’s son Jack is struggling, due to the legacy of his father.
“Harry Potter and the cursed child” is therefore not a Harry Potter book like the rest, but it stands out in a different way as well. It is not written solely by J.K. Rowling but John Tiffany and Jack Thorne as well. This is due to the fact that the book is not actually a novel; it is a manuscript to a play at the Palace Theater. Because of this “Harry Potter and the cursed child” will be a different experience than the other books but will be a dear reunion with the beloved characters from the fantastic universe.
Many things are different but one thing is certain: if you love the first seven books about Harry Potter and his friends, you should give “Harry Potter and the cursed child” a chance.
If you want to read the book in danish instead of english, "Harry Potter og det forbandede barn
" is released the 14. of October 2016, and it is available on Saxo.com.
