Harry Potter is Back!
For the millions of Harry Potter fans, the long wait is nearly over. Harry’s creator, J.K. Rowling has penned another book about the world’s most famous wizard and the release is scheduled for July 31st.
For those who may have just landed on Earth, and we’re not referring to astronaut Tim Peake or his Russian pals, Harry Potter is a very famous fiction wizard who has entertained countless youngsters (and adults!) in a long series of popular books and films.
Disappointed fans have had to digest the news that her 7th book would be her last but, as if by magic, that statement didn’t last too long and after the Potter wilderness years, J.K. Rowling has excited her followers with news of an eighth novel: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
On hearing the news one Year 6 pupil commented: “I know that many of my friends and family, including me, are very excited about this but the big question that I particularly want to know is whether there’s going to be a film about it.”
Another typical reaction from an 11-year-old was: “I think that all the Harry Potter films and books are amazing. Every time another one came out I would immediately buy it and watch or read it. I’m eagerly waiting for it to come out, can’t wait!”
J.K.’s change of heart is, apparently, down to all the support from her friends and family but maybe the sheer joy of writing has played a part too.
Hopefully, she will keep writing these Harry Potter chronicles, who knows…
