LONDON — Deep, deep breaths people.

Just hours after the official artwork for J.K. Rowling’s new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was released, we now have more details — including the play’s synopsis, the fact that it will be in two parts and star more than 30 actors, and the news that Cursed Child will definitely be the official eighth story in the series (set 19 years after the last book, most likely following on from the final epilogue of the Deathly Hallows).

So now you know it really isn’t a prequel: Harry Potter & the #CursedChild starts #19yearslater! Go to @HPPlayLDN for more information.
