JK Rowling teasing something big for Harry Potter fans is on the way…

September 6th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Ooooooooh… Harry Potter author JK Rowling is teasing something big coming to the Harry Potter universe…

The author, who also penned the Fantastic Beasts movies put this tweet out earlier today:

But what could “sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places” and the link to the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play mean?

Well, obviously, the first thing that comes to mind apart from a new book is a movie, but the author quickly said it was not a new movie (Pottermore is the official Harry Potter website):

There was some speculation that the stage show had changed owners after the marquee for the New York changed to ones closer in appearance to the Harry Potter books and movies, leading some to believe that a Cursed Child movie might be coming, however, a representative from the show quickly put this to bed: “I can confirm that these rumors are absolutely NOT TRUE,” they told EW.

“The show has not changed ownership. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child continues to be produced by Sonia Friedman, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions in London, Broadway and all around the world. Warner Bros. has always been a valued partner of Cursed Child since its inception. Their role has not changed.”

So what is it? A book? A new show? Or, and we’ve heard whispers of this before, a tv series? Whatever it is, I’ll be waiting patiently under my Slytherin blanket.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
