Queen of the universe and the writer of the hugely successful Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, is done with The Boy Who Lived. Despite non-stop requests on social media from crazed Potter fans, no more, she says.
For those who have requested, she presents the just released Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which may or may not ruin your childhood. Depending on how much you love the series combined with your age.
The book, which is not a book but rather the compilation of the two Acts of Harry Potter play, has received mixed response from reviewers. Is the magic over then? No. Never. That bit will stay, now. Always.
But the Harry Potter so many of us grew up with, the star-crossed kid who would be chased by a murderous evil wizard every final term of his school year, is never coming back. Like us, he has grown up. At the launch of the book, JKR confirmed that this is the end of the road for HP: "He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done. This is the next generation, you know. So, I'm thrilled to see it realised so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."
It is over, and it is fine.
For magic will always be found at Hogwarts by those who ask for it. #SorryDumbledore
