Harry Potter & Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play has become one in the muggle world with the new logo! Since it's beginning The Cursed Child Play had its own logo and its own font, but on the night between 3rd & 4th September 2019, the signs of the Palace Theater (London), Lyrics Theater (New York) and Princess' Theater (Melbourne) where the play is currently played have all been upgraded to the new logo.

 

The name HARRY POTTER is now written in JK Rowlings famous 'Harry Potter' font, muggles, witches and wizards alike will be able to tell with the new lightning-shaped P, created by Mary GrandPré for Scholastic's covers in the United States and later taken as the official logo of the saga by Warner Bros.

 

After a few weeks of rumors and a rebrand of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theaters, it seems that yes Warner Bros. has purchased the rights to The Cursed Child.

The program of the play also indicates the name of JK Rowling above the title. It seems that the words "parts one and two" have also been been removed.

 

Instagram and Twitter users have been showing off the old and new logo

I'm not sure I like this new logo, but I think it's because I've grown so used to the original one. In time, I'm sure I'll come to like this new change, however, I'd love to know if this means a new edition of the CC script will be released, to match the new logo. I think as long as CC stays a theatre performance, and not a play (like some rumours suggest), I'll be happy. Just because I don't accept the play as canon compliant, doesn't mean it still can't be treated with the same respect, love, and care as the original books and films. If that means changing the logo, then so be it.

I personally LOVE the new logo! It's adopting Cursed Child into the wider Harry Potter franchise and it's wonderful! As a huge fan of the play,  it's amazing to see this happen - the play is now in its FOURTH year here in London :D  So many fans have been hating on the new logo change, and honestly its been exhausting to see so much hate on my twitter feed, but I'm sure they will come around. We are hoping that nothing about the play ITSELF changes - costumes, house crests, etc - to match the franchise, because it's all very unique and us CC fans adore the merch we have. I've seen pictures of the new logo on posters and programmes and it honestly looks SO FREAKING GOOD!!

Do you think we’ll get the play turned into a film here in the UK? Despite JK Rowling say no, if WarnerBros. have the rights I reckon they’ll try to turn it in to a film series....

Absolutely not, it’s already been confirmed by Pottermore that it is NOT happening. The closest thing they could do though is release filmed versions of the stage production, but I’m not even sure if they will do that. It’s an extremely special production that you’ve got to experience in person :D

Perhaps like an illustrated version of the script like the seven books? ? but not illustrations of the stage production but illustrations of the actual settings within the play,, I would really love that!

That would be nice, having some sets brought to life in the illustration.

      The award-winning international hit stage production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be featured at this year’s New York Comic Con from October 3 to 6, 2019 with a booth and panel.

      On Thursday, October 3rd at 1pm at the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center (311 West 34th Street), panel audiences can join members of the cast and creative team of the record-breaking stage production as they come together to take a behind-the-scenes look at the “wildly imaginative continuation of J.K. Rowling’s wizardry saga” (The Hollywood Reporter). Moderated by James Snyder, who currently plays the title role on Broadway, the panel will feature never before seen photos, videos, and live performances, pulling back the curtain to reveal what goes in to bringing the magic of the Wizarding World to life on stage, eight shows a week.

      The production’s booth, on display all four days at #1736 on the Show Floor on Level 3 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, will feature Tony Award winner Christine Jones’ set model for the Broadway production and exclusive content featured in the forthcoming book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: The Journey which will be released by Scholastic in the US on November 5, 2019. There will also be a photo booth where fans can show their Hogwarts House pride by posing with Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin banners. Tickets to the Broadway production will be available for purchase on-site, as well as merchandise from the show, including the Cursed Child replica of Harry Potter’s wand and custom house t-shirts.

      Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now playing at the Palace Theatre in London, where it received its world premiere in July 2016; at the Lyric Theatre in New York, where it opened on Broadway in April 2018; and at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne, where it opened earlier this year. Upcoming productions include the exclusive U.S. West Coast premiere in San Francisco at the Curran next month; the German premiere, the first non-English language production, at the Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt in Hamburg in spring of 2020; and the Canadian premiere at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto in fall of 2020.

      Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne, directed by John Tiffany.

      Receiving universal acclaim for its breathtaking magic and stage wizardry, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the most awarded play in theatre history, winning 25 major U.S. awards, with six Tony Awards including Best Play. It also won 24 major theatre awards in the U.K. and is the most awarded show in the history of Britain’s Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play.

      It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and the father of three school-age children.

      While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

      Harry Potter and the Cursed Child features movement by Steven Hoggett, set by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music & arrangements by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, illusions & magic by Jamie Harrison, music supervision & arrangements by Martin Lowe. US Casting by Jim Carnahan, CSA.

      Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions.
