It's already established that this is the next story in the saga. The play and the script book (and the eventual film) are billed as "the eighth story", so there's no getting away from that fact, Bill...!

I haven't seen it yet, and I'm in London! In fact I've passed the Palace Theatre several times since it opened and keep thinking I should book up. But then I am actually happy just to read the book and wait for the movies...

I was interested in it too, until I heard it was just a "Time-travel alternate universe" story such as the kind that Star Trek and Marvel Comics routinely pump out when they get too wrapped up in their own fandoms.
Which would tend to support some of the fans' angry reaction to the book novelization as "Bad fan-fiction".

(When Star Trek: Deep Space Nine kept bringing the bad-character "Mirror universe" in as a running plotline, I sort of knew what to expect from this one...
Cursed hasn't exactly re-opened a story JK already closed, not that she's too concerned about the petty technicalities of that.)

There's been no "novelization of the play." All that's been published is the play itself.

Thank you, Warrior Nitpicker. You have done your duty in discrediting the Bad Person with micro-shaming. :roll:

Okay, "Which would tend to support some of the fans' angry reaction to the published play as 'Bad fan-fiction'."

He meant "novelization" in that the script has been "bookified"!

Except it hasn't...it's just a nicely hard-bound version of the script!

Yes, "bookified" in that the script has been "boundificated"!

I wouldn't be surprised if that was the spell they used, yes.

(And we're having so much fun with our smileys, I won't even bring up the "Is Albus Potter just ripping off Kylo Ren?" theory among the core fans who read the play.)

JK Rowling's editor didn't allow swearing in the books (all it said in the books was "character" swore but no words)
JK Rowling said that Ron would swear.
I wonder if that's the reason why Crabbe and Goyle don't talk much except for when Harry and Ron use the polyjuice potion and when they would cast spells.
