Social Media nearly exploded on the 31st with all the Harry Potter posts. It’s as if some Great Wizard said Alohomora! and unleashed the craze all over again. Witches and Wizards of the four great houses of Hogwarts were spotted on their way to bookstores with wands in hand and Galleons in their pockets.
Queen Rowling may not have written Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but it definitely transports us back to the world of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Response to the screenplay has been overwhelmingly amazing, despite some Potterheads expressing disappointment that the series should have been left alone after the Deathly Hallows. (Which side are you on?) Well…we’re not really complaining.
Rowling has never stopped writing about Harry’s world – Pottermore is an evidence of the fact. In fact, the Hogwarts Library books have been a wonderful addition to our shelves and we’re ever so excited about the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
So, how can you get your hands on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?
- If you pre-ordered through Jarir, your copy should be with you soon.
- If you don’t mind waiting a while, you can order a copy via Book Depository with free shipping. It may take up to three weeks – desperate times call for desperate measures?
- If your friend or family is traveling, just ask them to carry a copy on their way back. If they refuse, just perform the Imperious Curse (Imperio!) and trust us, they’ll do it.
- If you have a Kindle, you could get an e-book without delays.
- Maybe drop by Jarir or Virgin Megastores RIGHT NOW and see if they have it?
We hope you get your copy soon and once you’ve read it, keep the spoilers to yourselves. After all that’s what Queen Rowling has requested of all Potterheads.
Side note: Deathly Hallows was released NINE years ago. How old does THAT make you feel?!
