Rowling's upcoming Harry Potter play, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child." And on Friday, the site  released the much-awaited ... synopsis!  People who've spent the last day speculating about who might be this cursed child in the winged bird's nest ("Uh ... looks like Harry Potter ... but Rowling said it's not a prequel? ") finally have their answer: It's Harry's youngest son, Albus Severus. The play will center on him in addition to adult Harry Potter, who is now an "overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children." Readers will remember Albus from the epilogue from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when he was prepping to head to Hogwarts on Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. The Pottermore synopsis did not name, tragically, the bizarre magical species that made -- or is? -- the nest featured in the official artwork. Rowling announced back in June that  "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" would hit the London stage , reigniting our childhood hopes, dreams and fears, which are all now bouncing around thanks to this new information. A peek back into the Harry Potter world is extremely exciting, but it's also like, the Harry Potter is an overworked dad and his kid still can't catch a break? Life is sad.  I'm also very excited to confirm today that a new play called Harry Potter and the #CursedChild will be opening in London next year. — J.K.
