J.K. Rowling has officially announced the 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is the eighth Harry Potter story and will be presented on stage, according to Pottermore.com.

As a Harry Potter fan myself, I'm super excited that Rowling has decided to share more of the story. Working in collaboration with writer, Jack Thorne and Tony and Olivier Award Winning Director, John Tiffany, the story continues now with Harry working for the Ministry of Magic and raising three school-age kids.

The play, which will open in London's West End this summer, will be told in two parts, so that the 'epic-nature' of the story is not diminished. Tickets go on sale for the play Wednesday.
