JK Rowling's latest novel in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II, is scheduled to hit store shelves at exactly at 12:01 a.m. this Sunday, July 31.

Publisher Scholastic is planning a massive 4.5 million copy first printing in North America and pre-sales are said to be the highest since the last book in the series, Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set 19 years after the events of the last novel and is the script of the new play currently being performed in London’s Palace theatre.

Harry is now married to Ginny Weasley and their son, Albus, is about to start at Hogwarts.

JK Rowling has asked theatre goers and readers to 'keep the secrets and let audiences enjoy Cursed Child with all the surprises we’ve built into the stories”.

Due to the weekend launch and the Bank Holiday in Ireland, Easons expects the book to be delivered by Tueday August 2nd if you pre-order HERE.
