J.K. Rowling created a play for Harry Potter fans dying to know what happens next to everyone's favorite wizarding trio. 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is set to take place 19 years after the last Harry Potter book. According to the play's website:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.


Now, even if you can't make it to see the play performed, you can read it all in one sitting if you want. Pottermore just announced that the script will be published on July 31st.

Draco's birthday and harry potter's son keep J K Rowling on Twitter

J.K. Rowling confirmed a fan June 5 in their celebration of the character Draco Malfoy's birthday. She even let slip his age.



At the ripe, old age of 35, Draco can now officially be elected the President of the United States. Except for the fact that he was probably born in England. Or in the Wizarding World. Or whatever.

But if his parents took a portkey to America for the birth of their son and he was naturalized in the colonies, he could still make a run for it.

Rowling didn't stop there.

She amazingly took on a fan who doubted the legitimacy of Harry's naming his son after Serverus Snape.



What a basic fan complaint. Why do you engage with this J.K.? Don't you have things to do? Where are your children?

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.

Hop on the Hogwarts Express to feels-town, because according to author JK Rowling, today would be Harry and Ginny's son, James S Potter's first day at Hogwarts.



I can't control them; it's too sweet! If you're also headed off to Hogwarts today, give him a shout:



Er, or maybe don't. And if you're unlucky enough to be headed back to muggle school today, remember this:



Good luck out there.

JK Rowling's trying to help you get cultured, y'all! Coming soon to a theater (not the movie kind) near you (well, in London) is a brand new Harry Potter play called Cursed Child. JK didn't offer any plot details, but who are we kidding; if it's Harry Potter related, we're in.



Working alongside JK on this project are Tony award winning director John Tiffany (Once) and screenwriter/playright Jack Thorne (Skins, Cast-offs, The Scouting Book for Boys). She's said the play won't be a prequel, but as for what the Cursed Child actually is, we'll have to wait and see.

In other Harry Potter news that will probably make you feel old, JK Rowling reminded us that the first Harry Potter novel was published EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO. Do you remember where you were when the wizarding world of Harry Potter first came to be?

“It would depend on the script,” Daniel Radcliffe told Radio Times. “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”

If I had a dollar for every time I saw a "I didn't get my letter from Hogwarts" joke, I'd probably have as much money as JK Rowling, who apparently now has the luxury of spending her days responding to fans on Twitter.  



The author's latest entry into the JK Rowling Twitter Hall of Fame (seriously, she's basically the president of the great nation of Twitter at this point) reminds you that even if your letter didn't arrive by owl, you definitely went to Hogwarts.  So wipe those tears from your eyes and let the books be your Hogwarts Express.

J.K. Rowling, or as she's known here: c0caine Twitter Lady, hopped back on her social drug of choice to again respond to random fan questions about upcoming plot details of the Fantastic Beasts movie.

In her usual flurry of stream of conciousness, she all but confirmed that the movie would include an as yet unnamed school of wizardry that exists in America.



Probably drunk off her own informational power, she also revealed that the American wizarding school might have something to do with Native American culture.



The movie, which will star Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as main character Newt Scamander, is set for a release sometime next year.

It's unclear whether she means "hey, sorry, I wish I hadn't killed him" or "hey, what a bummer, it makes me sad too," but JK Rowling has started a new tradition of apologizing for character deaths with the one and only Fred Weasley.  

After an initial tweet said she was sorry about Fred, one fan asked about Tonks and Lupin.  Rowling replied, "I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him."  I'll just be sitting here waiting on apologies for Hedwig and Dobby.


Another fan sought inspiration from the author, who provided a few lovely and humbling images that may get you through a future rough day:



D'aww.  That cute little sloth makes up for Fred...a little.

In response to a question about whether or not there were any Jewish students at Hogwarts, JK Rowling not only named a Jewish student who attended with Harry named Anthony Goldstein (if you're wondering, he was in some bits about Dumbledore's Army), but also confirmed that there are LGBT students, and people of all religions except Wiccans in attendance.  

So, they're there, just not really where you can see them.
