Pottermore has revealed the poster artwork (above) for the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play — and J.K. Rowling loves it! Rightfully so: It looks appropriately depressing and ominous for a production with its title, à la A Series of Unfortunate Events covers. (Even if, as some have begun to point out, it also does kind of look something like Pac-Man became a mix of Groot and a Golden Snitch and decided to eat a human. Curses!)
Playbill adds that the show, based on an original, under-wraps story that is not a prequel, by Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, will be halved and is meant to be seen either on the same day (matinee and evening) or on consecutive nights. Cursed Child premieres next summer at London’s Palace Theatre. You can scope out more information about the play, including priority ticketing, here.
