No snitches allowed, except for the Quidditch kind!
"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is opening previews this week in London, with the story set 19 years after the main plot of J.K. Rowling's seventh and final book in the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Pottermore recently shared three sets of photos to showcase the actors in character, and a script book with the entire story will be available July 31, which is the shared birthday of author Rowling and The Boy Who Lived.
But there's a long time between now and July 31, and not all Harry Potter fans will be fortunate enough to see the London play. Some of us may want to know every little detail ASAP while others will want to keep the mystery alive so they experience it fresh in the theater or on the page in the script book.
To that end, J.K. Rowling just shared her own little 30-second PSA asking the lucky fans who do get to see the play to keep their traps shut and not pull a Rita Skeeter across the Internet.
Here are Rowling's tweets on the subject:
This is a big week for all of us who've worked on Harry Potter and the #CursedChild. Real audiences are about to see it for the 1st time!— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 6, 2016
It's a good thing they are making that script book available July 31 or the Internet might riot. Then again, Rowling herself has a history of extra Potter details, beyond the books, the play, and the upcoming "Fantastic Beasts" movie. Maybe she had to pin that #KeeptheSecrets tweet as a reminder to herself.
