LONDON, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- The upcoming stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set to have its script released as a book.
Series author J.K. Rowling's official Harry Potter website Pottermore, made the announcement Wednesday stating that the script book would be released following the play's world premiere this summer in London.
Dubbed as a "special rehearsal edition," the book will retail for $29.99 in a hardcover form or as an ebook for $14.99 off the Pottermore website according to the Wall Street Journal.
Revealed as the official eighth story in the Harry Potter series, The Cursed Child is set 19 years after the last chapter in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows and picks up after Harry bids farewell to his eldest sons, James Sirius and Albus Severus at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters.
"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," reads the synopsis."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."
The two-part play is based on a story written by Rowling with Jack Throne and John Tiffany, with Throne writing the script.
Pottermore also announced a slew of new special print editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone that will be re-released in four special editions, one for each Hogwarts house to mark the first books 20th anniversary.
A new edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is on the way as well after the release of the film adaptation on Nov. 18.
