J.K. Rowling Offers New Information on the Forthcoming Harry Potter Play

By Maryann Yin 

rowlingJ.K. Rowling’s fans have become well-known for coming up with elaborate Harry Potter-themed theories. Recently, one reader took to Twitter to ask Rowling whether or not He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is the “cursed child” referred to in the title of the forthcoming Harry Potter play.

After this question was answered, she also discussed whether or not Rubeus Hagrid is able to cast a patronus, revealed her favorite fan theory, and joked with Tom Felton (the actor who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series). Below, we’ve chronicled all of the exchanges in a Storify post embedded below—what do you think?

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will open at London’s West End in Summer 2016. It will feature an untold part of Harry’s story. (via BuzzFeed)
