Come on now, who didn’t read The Cursed Child, put it down, and go “WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON”?!
To me, it was nothing but glorified fanfiction, created to put a bit more money in the pockets of the author (Queen JK). It followed none of the structure we’ve loved from the start, and are you seriously telling me that Voldemort and Bellatrix got it on while Harry was hunting down Horcruxes?
I’ll be honest, it didn’t wash.
But blimey, the stage production couldn’t be further from that. I did a full review, while managing to keep as many of the secrets as possible. It was amazing. The staging, the costumes, the magic.
