Harry Potter Cursed Child to Be Sequel: Plot Details From the Two-Part
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I and II will be a sequel to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

“It’s safe to say that The Cursed Child picks up from where The Deathly Hallows ended,” co-producer Sonia Friedman told The Daily Mail in a new interview. 

The two-part play’s new poster has the tagline: “The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.”

Fans of the books will remember that the Deathly Hallows ended with an epilogue that took place 19 years after Harry Potter defeated Lord Voldemort. The epilogue featured Harry and his wife, Ginny Weasley, taking their children to Platform 9 3/4 to get on the Hogwarts Express. It focuses mostly on Albus Severus Potter, who is getting ready to become a First Year.

Author Rowling posted a synopsis on her Pottermore website, writing:

“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

Don’t expect the stage’s special effects to be at the level of Warner Brothers. The creative team plans to focus more on plot than flying broomsticks.

“Because it’s a play, it’s worth stressing that at this stage of the process it’s not our intention to have a high-tech show, but to go back to basic storytelling,” Friedman said, calling the shows “raw theatre.”
