Happy birthday, Harry Potter!

It’s Harry’s birthday today. If he were real, he’d be 36.

It is also the release day for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a two-part play that has just opened in London.

The play is written by Jack Thorne from an original story by Thorne, J.K Rowling and John Tiffany.

Those if us on this side of the pond will have to wait for it to cross the Atlantic. We can, however,  look forward to a movie adaptation of Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will be released on November 11.

 It stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the “author” of the book, which is an encyclopedia of the eponymous animals.

The movie, Rowling’s screenwriting debut, is the first in a projected trilogy and brings the world of HP to the United States. According to the book, Scamander travelled the world in research of magical creatures beginning in  1918. His adventures culminated with the publication of his masterpiece in 1927. Here’s a trailer.

So, Potter fans, we have s few things to look forward to. Maybe this is Harry’s gift to us.
