Will there be a Sequel to Cursed Child?

Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black »

I was sort of idly glancing through the posts in here and had a wondering. Will there be a sequel to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? Are there any rumours to that effect -- and are they valid?

What would you feel about having a sequel, and going more into the story as it was 'left' at the end of the play? Is this something you would look forward to reading (and seeing) ^_^ or is it something which you would avoid like the plague <_< -- or something in-between?

I think a lot of people are not fans of Cursed Child because of the story which it shows. Many feel it is not in accordance with the Harry Potter books which are already in existence. However, there are some definite fans out there (I am one of them) who were sort of bewildered, then delighted, when the story played itself out.

How do you feel about the possibility of a sequel? Is it something "devoutly to be wished" or is it something which would be "a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours"?

I am kind of done with Harry Potter's story, but definitely not the world! I'd love a story based at one of the other schools, or a RAB story, maybe something more about the founding of Hogwarts?

Cursed Child was ok, it just didn't fulfill the (admittedly high) hopes I had for it. I wish JKR had consulted and pushed for more so that the characters might be more true to what she had previously written

I agree with Ariana, because I do not want any story that is about Harry Potter anymore. He is such a legend and I do not prefer risking his amazing stories for something that would spoil everything. So Harry Potter is done for good, so he can stay something now trivial, but a classic book. But I would love to hear anything new from magic universe (more like Fantastic beasts, Quidditch through the ages).
Cursed Child was fun reading, but I was not deeply moved like at other HP books.

I think that the Wizerding World is better portrayed on the big screen rather than a play, for the possibilities of special effects are near limitless. I think JK Rowling should make one of these two things:
[*] A one season TV show, which follows the story of the Marauders during their time at Hogwarts.
[*] A completely different story that takes place in one of the Wizerding schools besides Hogwarts, Ilvermorny, Durmstrang and Beauxbaton.

I personally didn't much care for the Cursed Child write up of the screenplay, and have yet to see the theatre production, though that doesn't mean I will not keep an open mind. I hope to see more of Scorpius and James as they are honestly my favourite characters within the book. In a way, I hope there will be a sequel because it would be interesting to have answers to questions such as what the heck happened to the Trolley Lady on the Hogwarts Express?! It's been a while since I've read The Cursed Child and I only read through it once, so the details are kind of hazy, but a part of me also wants to re read it to get a better comprehension of it. I'm hoping there will be a sequel to it though, because it would broaden the ideas that gave life to the original concept. Alternatively, a big part of me would prefer it if there were no more stories pertaining to the world of Harry Potter, as there are already an extensive amount and it would seem that they are just grasping at straws at this point. So as you can tell I'm pretty much in two minds about the idea of a sequel to the Cursed Child.
