Written in the form of a news article by Rita Skeeter, the story finds Harry at 34 reuniting with Dumbledore’s Army at the Quidditch World Cup. This is the first time Rowling has written about Harry since the epilogue of ‘Deathly Hallows.’ There are currently no future plans to do more writing about the character (unless you count the upcoming prequel play.)
Quality-wise, it’s damn delightful. There are some great nuggets of information in there and a lot of crackling wit that will definitely make you wish there was more. A few fans are definitely going to start reading the books all over again after this.

OK so the dragon breathes real fire.
Here’s the official poster for Mudbloods, the first feature documentary about Quidditch. I premiered it exclusively over at TheWrap.
Synopsis: Mudbloods follows the resilient underdogs of the UCLA Quidditch team as they make their way to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. Through nail biting victories and losses, the dreamers, creators and athletes who make up this exceptional community come together to make this magical sport into something you could’ve never imagined–until now.
Film premieres at AFI Docs in DC on June 21st and hits theaters and VOD in October.
Rowling is pursing ‘Once’ musical director John Tiffany. Daily Mail had this to say about the plot:
Harry’s early years as an orphan and outcast will be the focus of the drama, which could well be in a London theatre by late next year.
The piece will also explore the story of Harry’s parents, ace wizards Lily Evans Potter and James Potter.
