J.K. Rowling has set the record straight on the new Harry Potter ‘book’

It’s NOT a novel. It’s a script

In your wildest, most creative dreams, you imagined new Harry Potter storylines.

And then yesterday, it was announced that there was going to be a new Harry Potter book. And everyone who’d ever dreamed of Hogwarts, of Diagon Alley and of butterbeers at the Three Broomsticks collectively lost it.

We’re finally getting more material. However, it’s not a new book and J.K. Rowling sounded a bit pissed about it.

She also said that she’s sick to the back teeth of people asking whether it’s going to be set before Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

That’s it then. We have a new script, which will be in book form. But its not a novel, and it’s definitely not a prequel. Don’t ask her again.
