Harry Potter fans, you’ve been waiting nine long years for this moment! The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II Script Book is being released on Saturday night, and we can’t wait!

Yes, it may not be a ‘proper’ novel like all the others, but it’s a script book set on the two-part play currently premiering in London – and is the eighth official installment in the Harry Potter book series.

The story is set nineteen years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and follows Harry Potter – who now works at the Ministry of Magic, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter. SO KEEN!

On Monday, Barnes & Noble announced that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is it’s most pre-ordered title since the last Harry Potter book, and it’s expected to be the biggest-selling book of the year! No surprises there!

“We expect it to be our biggest selling book of the year,” Mary Amicucci, chief merchandising officer at Barnes & Noble said in a statement.

“For the millions of us who are Harry Potter fans, a new Hogwarts story is a huge event,” Seira Wilson, Amazon books editor also said.

“I’m excited to see how the ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ script fits in with the books we know and love. I could easily see young fans adapting to the format and using it to act out the play on their own.”

And if you’re a die-hard Harry Potter fan, there’s over ninety bookshops around Oz hosting parties!
