Get excited, Harry Potter fans.
Scholastic announced that it's bringing a theatrical production of a new Harry Potter story from the stage to the page.
That play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, makes its debut in London in July, and Scholastic's "script book" will come out at the end of that month.
The story follows wizard hero Harry Potter -- 19 years after the conclusion of the last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- and his struggles with his son, Albus Severus.
The play was written by Jack Thorne and based on a story by author J. K. Rowling, Thorne and director John Tiffany.
To say that the news has fans excited would be an understatement.
