There seems to be no end to the wizarding world of Harry Potter because now, an eighth book of the fantasy franchise is reportedly underway!
This year is definitely a great year for many Potterheads out there because the movie adaptation of the “Harry Potter” spin-off, “Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them” is set to be released in November. Also, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will soon open its doors at Universal Studios California this April, and let’s not forget – a two-part stage show called “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will come to London this summer.

However, for those who can’t catch the stage show in London, they’ll still be able to find out how the next chapter in Harry Potter’s life unfolds, as the script for the stage play will be published as an official “Harry Potter” book, the day after the play’s world premiere, according to J.K. Rowling’s official Harry Potter website, Pottermore.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, and written by Thorne, the eighth book takes place 19 years later after the Battle of Hogwarts, where Harry now, as a working husband and father, is struggling with his youngest son, Albus who is the titular cursed child.
With the play set to premiere in London on 30 July 2016, and the book set to be published as print edition and also as an eBook the next day, 31 July 2016, we’re wondering will there be any chance for the eighth book to be adapted into a movie too?
