Harry Potter Fans Celebrate New Book ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’

Harry PotterHarry Potter magic hit Asia on Sunday morning, as aspiring witches and wizards crowded into bookstores to get their hands on the first copies of a new play that imagines the hero as an adult.

Launch parties for ” Harry Potter and the Cursed Child+ ” were held hours after the play’s premiere in London, setting the stage for a return of the series that has captivated readers and movie audiences worldwide.

Nearly 300 fans rushed through the doors of Kinokuniya bookstore on Singapore’s Orchard Road at 7:01 am (2301 GMT Saturday) to become one of the first people in the world to see the new script.

Student Samantha Chua, 24, who along with her boyfriend was first in line, said she had been waiting outside the fourth-floor bookstore since 5 am.

Harry Potter“We were here so early that the mall wasn’t even open yet so we had to come up through the cargo lifts,” she told AFP, adding that it was “all worth it”.

“I grew up reading the books and I have a special place for them on my shelves but this will be my crowning glory,” added Chua, who was wearing a Harry Potter-themed sweater.

Widely seen as the eighth Harry Potter installment, the play is set 19 years after the end of the last book and features a grown-up Potter working at the Ministry of Magic.

Like many of his fans, Potter has now become an adult and has three children with his wife Ginny Weasley.

He still has his trademark round-rimmed glasses and the scar on his head, a permanent reminder of his nemesis Lord Voldemort, but must now help his youngest son Albus confront the family’s dark past.

Harry PotterThe script’s global kickoff was timed to coincide with its launch at midnight in London, after the play’s world premiere at the Palace Theatre earlier in the evening. July 31 is also author J. K. Rowling’s birthday.

Hundreds of fans snaked down London’s famous Picadilly street waiting to get their hands on a copy, while others queued anxiously outside Lello, a Gothic Revival-style bookstore in Portugal’s historic center.

In Singapore, some fans held a prize-giving ceremony and a hunt for the Snitch — a type of ball used in the wizard sport of Quidditch in the Potter books.

Others were spotted sitting in nooks around the store eagerly poring over the book.

Harry PotterValerie Wan, 10, was decked out in a Gryffindor robe and a wand along with a stuffed toy version of Hedwig, the snowy owl that was Potter’s pet in the books.

In Bangkok, around 40 fans, many wielding wands and other wizarding paraphernalia, gathered outside a large downtown mall overnight.

Sanpipat Huangsawat, 29, was first in line and had started queuing at 6:30 pm on Saturday evening. He finally got his hand on the book some 11 hours later.

“I feel very excited and it’s great to be the first owner of this book in Thailand,” he told AFP.

Sheryans, 16, said he was not sure he’d ever get the chance to see another Harry Potter book launch.

“I’ve been following the Harry Potter series since I was eight years old, and it’s unbelievable that after nine years they’re keeping it going,” he told AFP.

Dozens gathered at a downtown bookstore in Hong Kong to get the new title and try on Harry Potter costumes provided by the store.

Ten-year-old Adele Leung, who came with her mother, was anxious to crack into the latest Potter tome.
“I love Harry Potter and have read all of the last ones. I think I will read it in a few days,” she said.
